Pandora: Purge of Pride'

They already have a great game, they just want to sell it

WORCESTER, Mass. A small group of independent game-developers are looking for help funding their creation 'Pandora: Purge of Pride.' They formed an uber-game-making team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI). On the art side of things was Jill Sauer and Ryan Casey. For coding there was Michael Frankfort and Alex Thornton-Clark. They knew what game they didn't want to make.

'There seemed to be too many shooters, zombies, pirates, ninjas and things that have been done to death,' said Casey, a Veazie native and John Bapst graduate. 'We wanted to do something a little bit different. Greek myth being a good place to start.'

Pizza made possible by Kickstarter

When the Maine Grind in Ellsworth decided they wanted to add pizza to their menu, they turned to their customers for help raising the money they needed to make it happen. Using a site called Kickstarter, they launched a campaign to raise $20,000 - and they were successful! Kickstarter is a 'crowd funding' site, meaning individuals pledge money to projects they want to support. Kickstarter started to help fund creative projects - musicians, artists, etc. But more businesses are finding the site a great way to fund their creative projects. There are other crowd funding sites out there, but Kickstarter is among the most popular (do be sure any site you choose is legit!).
