CBE Software’s Surviving Indiegogo

CBE Software’s Surviving Indiegogo

An honest, heartfelt tale of indie game development


Written by on

Surviving Indiegogo is a chronicle of indie developer CBE Software’s experiences in the world of crowdfunding. The tale will unfold as a series of blog entries.

The director of CBE Software, Jan Kavan, has been quite forthcoming about CBE’s past game publishing struggles and the devastation his company has suffered as a result.     

Then crowdfunding turned everything around.

Part I: Breaking the Curse is the first part of CBE’s experiences with an Indiegogo campaign for J.U.L.I.A. Enhanced Edition. It’s the story of a small development team that overcame hardships and achieved 200% of its initial crowdfunding goal.

Part 1: Breaking the Curse is now available on the CBE Software site.

I've been with JA in one capacity or other since 2003. I'm currently website administrator. I'm also a digital artist (my avatar is one of my creations). I write reviews and articles, create graphics and basically help tend the site. It's work I enjoy very much. I love playing games of all kinds, but adventure and RPGs are my favorites (particularly scary/dark/unsettling ones). At the top of my list are The Cat Lady, The Longest Journey, Dreamfall, Still Life (first one only), Scratches and Culpa Innata. I'm a dyed-in-the-wool recluse and prefer the company of animals, hardware and ghosts to human beings (no offense). And no bio would be complete without my saying that I do NOT care for phones of ANY sort. Further, I think Dell computers are garbage and that Microsoft has become megalomaniacal.
