Gamefound announces exclusive pledge manager cooperation with renowned publishers, along with opening a new pledge manager service
We’re excited to announce new partnerships with Archon Studio, Corvus Belli, Flatout Games, Geeknson, Open Owl Studios, and Van Ryder Games and their exclusive use of Gamefound as their pledge manager of choice. We're incredibly excited about these creators, both on a personal level as well as their past, current, and future projects.
We’ve been developing the platform for years now, building a platform for the gaming community and by the gaming community, aimed to bring solutions not just to crowdfunding and pledge management but specifically to the tabletop community's needs. Working directly with many of these creators over the years, we’ve always been able to build a better solution and ensure that the creator’s voice and needs are an important part of Gamefound’s continued growth and development. With these partnerships, we’re making sure that this vision continues.
We’re excited, not just for these creators, but for what comes next. We want to continue to make the tabletop crowdfunding space the best it can possibly be; we’re excited for the new gamers that will join the platform, the new creators that will find us, and the games we will all bring to life together.
We’re here for you, but most importantly – thanks to you.

New pledge manager
The new pledge manager is here! We’ve been working on making the service as seamless as possible, and now it’s available to you. We’ve streamlined the option of importing a campaign from an external platform. Now, when you set up a new project, you can add an already funded one and use our pledge manager:
We’ll ask you about the funding amount and currency and the number of backers. You’ll also have to provide us with the necessary info about your company, which will be verified by our payment provider later.
Then, you’ll be able to choose if you want to launch a late pledge or pledge manager.
The rest of the steps are described on the project dashboard. Once you add all the required info and get verified, you can launch your project.
Apart from that, all the functions you already know and are used to have been looked at and upgraded to the highest standards. We’ll also be rolling out new functionalities soon to make our pledge manager even better.
New payment method – Klarna
We’ve introduced another payment method available for backers in Belgium, Sweden, Austria, Germany, the Netherlands, and Switzerland. You can choose Klarna when you’re shipping address in one of these countries.
The new beginning
We’re excited to move on with a new pledge manager we could create using all our experience and knowledge and, of course, your feedback. We’re even more excited to have so many amazing creators on board with us from the very start. With what we’ve learned, we could make the new service suited especially for your needs. We’ll keep on working and developing to make it the best.
Thank you for all your support!
