Indiegogo appoints new head of gaming

Tabletop veteran Nate Murray will oversee crowdfunding for both board and video games

Indie-focused crowdfunding platform Indiegogo has hired Nate Murray to take up the role of head of gaming.

Murray already has extensive experience with raising funds for tabletop gaming projects but will now add video games to his remit, Venturebeat reports. He previously worked as the in-house product and crowdfunding campaign manager at tabletop game provider IDW Games.

He will lead the platform's gaming team and work with developers on their fundraising strategy for their projects.

In a statement, Murray said: "I've spent the last four years studying the ins-and-outs of crowdfunding and based on that work I can say that Indiegogo provides unparalleled resources and opportunities for game campaigners.

"I'm excited to join the Indiegogo team because the platform is designed to help campaigners raise the funds they need to create their ideas, as well as assist them beyond their campaign dates. Indiegogo is part of the entire process of bringing campaigners projects to life from concept to manufacturing and ultimately to market."

Indiegogo recently entered a partnership that would allow it to offer equity crowdfunding, enabling project creators to offer financial rewards rather than just physical or digital ones.
