Learning from the Spectrum Next on Kickstarter


The Next project was not that well advertised prior to the kickstarter campagne as well. So this is no rant about missing communication from MEGA65. :-) I just wanted to record my observations, about what I think makes the Next so successful during this fund raising phase. After all the projects are similar.

Additionally what I said above i see that:

* stretch goals are added over time not only about the hardware, but also delivering games that showcase the Next features.
* pledges are expanded over time (they ran out of pi-zero pledges pretty soon and added new zero pledges later)
* many online media outlets reported about the campagne.

Of course should the MEGA65 go a different route then a crowdfunding phase this is mostly irrelevant.


(Leave this as-is, it’s a trap!)
