the University of Cologne currently conducts a research project studying success and failure of crowdfunding activities in the video gaming industry. Part of this research project is a questionnaire addressed at active or previous backers of Kickstarter projects. Although Steam Greenlight games are currently not in our focus, some people here might also be active at Kickstarter and the research might be relevant and interesting for all of you supporting crowdfunding as a means to get gaming ideas published. The goal of this questionnaire is to understand the motivation of backers. If you supported at least one video game development project on Kickstarter so far I would appreciate you filling out the following questionnaire:http://www.unipark.de/uc/videogames/
The research has a purely academic background and receives no financial support by any outside sources. The results will be publicly available upon project completion. If you want to receive the results, just provide a valid email address at the end of the questionnaire. Please contact me if you have any questions regarding this research.
Appreciating your support, best regards
