Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Whats the rules on posting game dev content on KickStarter

Hi there everyone, I've heard rumours before about posting your projects on KickStarter. Now, one of the rules I heard was something about you cannot post content on KickStarter that features the original standard blue character from the original templates like 3rd person template.

I have tried searching online for the full set of rules when submitting content to KickStarter but I cant seem to find anything.

The other main question I have is, I know Epic take a percentage of royalties from your game sales. (completely fair) do they take percentage from KickStarter backed funding? or is all that mine to use towards completion of the game?

Thanks in Advance.

I read (don't know exactly where but it was on epic website) that it depends on what you give to the backers. I will put some examples:

  • If they give some money and you give them a poster, you don't need to pay anything.

  • If they give some money and you give nothing, you don't need to pay.

  • If they give some money and you give the game either on physical or digital edition, you pay the percentage.

So as you see you will need to pay royalties only from the actual tier where you give away the game.
