Why You Don’t Need Project Funding

Posted: 07 May 2012 03:00 AM PDT

This week Kickstarter, a funding site for creative projects, is under scrutiny, following its first publicised scam. The project in the spotlight was a game called Mythic: The story of Gods and Men. Promising graphics close to that of World of Warcraft and Skyrim, fans pledged nearly $5000 towards it. However, shortly after the money was pledged, it was found that the creators had simply copied graphics and screen-shots of that of other websites. The project being found fake.

Now your probably asking why is this relevant to Envato. Well at the moment ActiveDen has a complete Flash section devoted to games. Now although Adobe Flash games may not be able to rival the likes of World of Warcraft, addictive and fun games that you can play whilst something is loading, like a video, are really quite popular. These type of games are selling anywhere from $8 to $15 at the moment on ActiveDen and really don’t require funding.

So for all you game developers out there, heed my words, addictive Flash games are the way forward. There’s no need for funding, no scams and no bad press. So get in there whilst you can and get in on all the goodies. :)
