    Crowdfunding is often now hailed as a way to free developers from the shackles of publishers, a way to make very specific products for very specific audiences, etc. What seems to be missing is ongoing dialogue about building this into a self-sustaining ecosystem of development where the crowd is sharing, not just funding and sourcing. Crowdsharing is a combination of crowdfunding and crowdsourcing in a sustainable loop. Using his recent experience on Shroud of the Avatar, 20-year video game veteran Starr Long will talk about the various ways to make this loop work.


    Attendees will gain valuable knowledge on how to run a crowdshared project by combining crowdfunding and crowdsourcing to create a self-sustaining loop between developers and backers, using real examples of what is working and what is not working with Shroud of the Avatar.
