Founder fundly has announced a new crowdfunding platform, which will help creators and developers build the infrastructure necessary to produce their first games.
The platform, called FundLever, will allow creators to raise money for a small initial investment, which can then grow as the game’s success grows.
FundLover will allow backers to take a cut of the profits from their projects and make contributions to their fund, which is set to be worth around $1 million by the time the project is done.
The fund will allow founders to use the money raised to build out their teams and make new features, but it won’t help fund the development of their games.
“FundLover is the best way to help small independent developers in the US to fund their next game,” founder and cofounder Mike Wieser told Polygon.
“It’s a good way to give a small amount of money to a project without having to pay for it.”
FundLovers are free to start, and the founders are offering a $20,000 initial investment to get started.
Wiesers said the fund is intended to give the creators the “confidence and resources” to make their first game, and he plans to work with his fellow funders to help them build their team, which he said will allow them to hire talented developers to make the games they want to make.
The founders have also pledged to give away their first-party rights to their games to fund the fund.
