We’re pleased to announce new integration points with two of the powerhouses of the indie game publishing world: IndieGoGo and The Game Crafter!
IGA’s support of IndieGoGo means that members using IGG as their crowdfunding platform of choice can now count on the same reliable backer/status updates, campaign shares, and all the other features Kickstarter users have come to love. In the past, we did the best we could to manually emulate what our automated processes do, but our new API access and integration means IndieGoGo campaigns are first-class citizens on the Indie Game Alliance website.
Our Game Crafter implementation is small for now, but will be expanding over time. You can now import game details from TGC just as you would from BoardGameGeek, using the Studio Game Catalog found at https://www.indiegamealliance.com/account/studio/games. Simply paste in your game’s URL and click Load Data.
Founded in April 2014, the Indie Game Alliance is a guild of independent tabletop game developers. Alliance volunteers, or Minions, give demos, run tournaments, playtest new games, and represent IGA members at conventions. With hundreds of member publishers on six continents, including household names like Portal Games, Asmadi Games, Tasty Minstrel Games, Mayday Games, and Brotherwise Games, the Alliance brings the very best of the board gaming hobby to the public.
