Patreon games: Kickstarter launches Drip to help fund individual creators

15 Novembre 2017

The crowdfunding platform on Wednesday announced it is rebooting Drip, opening it up to the full spectrum of artists and creators it now supports on Kickstarter.

"Kickstarter is for projects, Drip is for people", says Kickstarter regarding the difference between its two brands. "We believe creator independence means not being locked into a platform by design".

The tool will apparently be opened up to other creators early next year. Support is on an ongoing, month-to-month basis. Like Kickstarter, Drip has been built to support artists and creators across the full spectrum of disciplines supported on Kickstarter: Art, Comics, Crafts, Dance, Design, Fashion, Film & Video, Food, Games, Illustration, Journalism, Music, Photography, Podcasts & Radio, Publishing, Technology, and Theatre. Creators on Drip will have seamless access to Kickstarter's global community of 14 million users who will be able to use Drip with their Kickstarter account.

Drip is now an invite-only platform, and there's no word yet on when it will be opened up to the general public without invites. Drip is open to subscribers from today. Drip builds on what we've learned over 8+ years with Kickstarter, but instead puts creators - not projects - at the centre of the conversation.

Disparition inquiétante : une adolescente recherchée dans le Calvados
La lycéenne mesure 1,65m, elle a les yeux marrons et les cheveux châtains foncés. 75 militaires sont engagés dans cette opération. Une mère de famille aurait signalé à la gendarmerie en milieu de matinée la disparition de sa fille, mineure.

A unique selling point of Drip is its founding memberships.

"The work and relationships that creators build online should belong to them".

Drip has operated more or less in the same manner since the acquisition but that's now changing. "They shouldn't feel stuck to a platform because those things aren't easy to move", reads a Kickstarter blog post explaining how Drip champions creator freedom. Creators will actually be able to export data from Drip, and the company will "even help creators securely transfer subscription and payments information to other subscription platforms".
