Instead of just banning your account and deleting your post for a completely TACTLESS post, much less a post that breaks the rules, maybe we can turn this into a learning experience.

Are you interested in learning? Or should I just delete your post and ban your account?

Wait, why would you ban my account? Did I do something wrong? Please don't ban me by the way!

Hey guys, how about instead of being dicks to every new member, we actually talk to this guy about why his first post is cringeworthy, teach him about the Fastlane mindset, and maybe help him become a productive member.

I know my first post was cringeworthy, but here I still am, because people showed me why I was an idiot.

@ShowMeDaMonies the reason why your first post was horrible is because that’s not what this forum is about. We are not money chasers, affiliate marketers, guys who follow insta accounts that only post pics of lambos with motivational quotes.

We’re a community that’s based off the principle that delivering value. The forum is based off the book The Millionaire Fastlane written by @MJ DeMarco. We highly recommend you grab a copy or audiobook and figure out what we’re all about.

There are several successful businesses that operate from Forum members, but we do it with the goal of helping our customers first, and if we’re succesful in that, money can follow.

Long story short. If you’re expecting a “get rich quick and easy” forum, a forum that will teach you that one simple trick you’ve been missing, or just lambos and motivational quotes, this isn’t the place for you.

If you want to learn how to put in hard work to build a successful business that can lead to wealth, stick around and start reading and participating.

Also there are a few successful kickstarter campaigns in this forum. Maybe search for them and see what they did to give you an idea on what you have to do to meet your goal. None of them got funded by posting on a forum to get attention from investors.

It's not my project or Kickstarter actually. I'm just a fan trying to raise money for it. But yeah, this is probably the wrong way to go about it.

Where should I write the cheque to?
Could you put in a little less effort?
Did you actually think this was going to work?

You contact them by email to arrange a donation. Then they'll probably ask you for the details and all that.

Could I put in a little less effort? Hmm, not sure what you mean by this but ok.

No actually, I never did but I thought you know what it's worth a shot. However, this was before I found out you couldn't do this type of stuff around here so it's all moot now anyway!

I think that because $1000.00 is like $1.00 to a millionaire or pennies to normal people some just think they throw $1000.00 bills around like pennies.

WRONG!

Oops! I forgot to read the forum rules. My apologies.

To answer your question, there are many millionaires and multi-millionaires on this forum (don't think we have the billionaire yet) but your approach in securing an investment from them is entirely wrong.

However, this was before I found out you couldn't do this type of stuff around here

What do you think would happen if we allowed it?

Would we be a forum of discussion and contribution?

Or a forum of "Hey everyone! GIVE ME MONEY!"

There might be websites build specifically for that, like KickStarter as you mentioned, but this isn't one of them.

Nonetheless, I appreciate that you've been open to a dialogue and that your account was not removed.

Thank you and I totally understand why you don't allow it. Could you recommend any multi-millionaires/billionaires that I could contact in order to get it fully funded? Or maybe some websites (don't you worry, I'll always come back to this place!)? Miss Gene Wilder by the way. He was a big part of my childhood so it was absolutely crushing when I heard about his death :(

Since I'm in the games industry, if you make a game that is shit, no one will fund it. If you make a game that is naturally good, people will naturally pay for it.

But in order to make a game that is of the highest quality possible and to allow developers the freedom to really get the graphics, gameplay and everything to really shine and stand out, a bigger budget is needed. A AAA budget would make a huge, huge difference.

You aren't going to get a AAA budget for what I am assuming is an indie game. Go ahead and throw those expectations out the window because it isn't happening. Your best bet is to get a nice playable prototype ready, make some videos of it, and then release it as early access on steam. After that, get a few streamers and influencers to play the game as your marketing.

You still dont get it. When you say dont you worry, ill alwyas come back to this place” makes me and others weary.... No introductory post, no credentials, nothing about you its all about what YOU want. What do you have offer besides a generic want or need that only you believe in? (Not saying your idea is good or bad) but even on a site there is such thing as a way to things. You clearly need to learn this.

WTF does “Miss” gene wilder have to do with any of this?

In the early stages you shouldn't be worried about AAA polish or appearance. There are tons of free resources out there (unreal Engine, unity, cryengine) to prototype and create an MVP.

You're gonna need something that makes sense for an investor.

Personally, I'd start with a prototype. Get some functionality down and get the core of the game working enough to show it off.

If the project offers tons of replay value and a fun experience that makes sense for an investor, you should have no problem attracting attention on social media outlets.

You have to start marketing the game before it's ready, not after. Drum up interest.

It's been proven time and time again that you can bootstrap your way to success with a game project.

There are tons, and I mean TONS of resources (free and paid) online to learn coding, modeling, material design, etc. Stop worrying about bypassing the grind.

If THAT is how you expect to raise money for a project you need to spend a few years learning. My gosh.

The NUMBER ONE thing you need to address when soliciting an investment is what you plan to give up in return for the investment and why that is significant to the investor.

Your approach would be funny if you weren’t serious.

Anyone who's posted a serious reply or thinking about it, re-read this post.

OP is just a fan boy looking for his dream game to be a reality. He's not interested in the fastlane, entrepreneurship, or anything related to business at all.

It already is a reality but for something of this magnitude, it needs a huge budget. Right now, I'd say it's in the mid range but this is not ideal.

Do you play games? Think of some of the most legendary games that you and other people would still play today. Do they have the best graphics, music or "magnitude"? If the game is excellent the market would definitely respond to it. At this stage a demo of the game would be a good way to test market demand

Or maybe he's faking being a fan boy and is in fact the dev. Anyway it looks like he doesn't want to listen...

If I told you what the game is, you'd immediately know there's a TON of market demand. This is the most anticipated game of all time in fact. Anyway, I've got in contact with a couple of investors so soon they'll have their AAA funding.
