Chief executive sets out terms of investment
The service will involve investors buying shares in game projects. The investors, in turn, will receive payment shares if the projects are funded, made, and receive commercial success. While the service will only be available in Europe at launch, the company intends to operate internationally once it makes it through various legal barriers.
Chief executive Korstiaan Zandvliet announced the release window of the service during his keynote at the Dutch Festival of Games.
He attested that Gambitious would be different from Kickstarter, saying, “The main difference between Gambitious and the currently popular Kickstarter is that the former does not rely on donations. Instead, a developer decides what percentage of the required funding people can buy. Someone who invests money in a project, becomes a shareholder and is entitled to dividends.”
