Hey there, fellow game developer! 🎮
Creating a game isn't just about the graphics or the mechanics, right? It's about building an entire universe from scratch. As indie developers, sometimes the most challenging bosses aren't in the game but outside of it: funding, marketing, and community building.
Enter tokenization, the latest power-up for indie devs.
Still unsure? Let's dive in:
Think of tokenizing your equity as adding a rare, epic item to your game. This isn’t just a fancy buzzword; it's your ticket to funding your passion project. By offering a piece of your game's potential success, you’re inviting a broad range of players and investors to back you up.
Instead of turning to Crowdfunding platforms, you can tokenize and fractionalize your equity and directly offer it as an opportunity to get on board for early adopters.
Imagine offering a bonus level or an exclusive in-game pet. Now, translate that into real-world perks for your backers. Early access? Exclusive content? Tokens let you attach intangible benefits that you can use to make the investment even more attractive, particularly for your early players.
By tokenizing, you’re not just looking for funds from a global source of gamers & investors. You're rallying a team of gamers who believe in your vision. They’re not just investors; they’re fans, beta testers, and your fiercest defenders against trolls.
Use your Discord server as your game's main hub. By creating exclusive channels for token holders, you offer a space for hardcore fans to discuss, speculate, and hype up your game.
A multitude of applications and Discord bots already exists to automate this process, forcing owners to validate their holdings to gain access. A popular example is collab.land, usable to both Discord & Telegram.
Remember that sense of community ownership? Let your token holders have a say in the game's direction. Planning a new feature? Considering a major update? Poll them. Make them feel they're part of the development team.
This is also automated through for example snapshot, a tool making sure only those who are current investors in your project can vote.
With tokenization, you're not just offering equity. You're equipping your fanbase to be your most significant ambassadors.
One of the most valuable opportunities is that of gamifying the whole experience and leveraging your investors as your most effective marketing strategy. Use a small piece of your retained tokens to incentivize actions that aim to help grow your community of gamers. Meme-making? Push your game across platforms and gaming forum? Share your content, create guides or their own videos?
All of these tasks can be properly incentivized and managed at scale through platforms such as Zealy to give you a major headstart over the competition.
Tokenization isn't just a revolution of public fundraising, it’s a way to forge deeper bonds with your community, giving them a tangible stake in your game’s success as well as contributing to its growth.
Tokenization is the secret weapon that could make all the difference to propel adoption.
