Crowdfunding

Crowdfunding (on platforms such as Kickstarter, Indiegogo, Gofundme, etc) is the modern day method of obtaining funds for your project without having to go through a publisher.

Depending on the funding income and prize context of pledge levels, it may be necessary to purchase the mobile license, or the professional license.

Branding

The logo must have a minimum width of 15% of the width of your game resolution. If you need an individual/unusual form of branding due to your game design then you have to contact the Visionaire Team first and get it approved.
