Based in the UK, Mantic Games creates high-quality tabletop games including impressively detailed miniatures. For nearly a decade they’ve delivered over 15 games featuring original properties such as Kings of War and Deadzone as well as licensed games including The Walking Dead: All Out War and Hellboy: The Board Game. To date, backers have pledged over $5,000,000 to bring their projects come to life, making Mantic Games one of Europe’s most funded companies on Kickstarter.
Crowdfunding is an extremely important aspect of our business. As a miniatures manufacturer the biggest expense (and risk) for us is tooling the miniatures. This costs a considerable amount and would potentially limit the amount of miniatures we could produce if we didn’t have the option of using crowdfunding.” -Rob Burman, Online Sales and Social Media Manager
Expect the Unexpected
Mantic Games has collaborated with BackerKit for the past 2 years successfully fulfilling several projects. No matter how many projects a team has under their belt, unexpected challenges may still arise. For their most recent project, Hellboy: The Board Game, they partnered with Dark Horse Comics to provide nearly 12,000 backers a digital copy of a Hellboy graphic novel and a $20 voucher to use at Dark Horse Digital. Using BackerKit’s digital distribution tool, backers easily accessed their digital rewards straight from their survey.
Without Backerkit we simply wouldn’t have been able to do this. But it was just a case of uploading the codes as a text file and away we went. I actually couldn’t quite believe how easy it was! From a back end point of view, being able to see and download all the data is great, plus it’s a breeze to change/amend pledges.
We’ve Got You Covered
Mantic Games has a great reputation for repeatedly delivering high-quality games to their community. Collaborating with BackerKit ensures their backers get the best fulfillment experience possible featuring a robust survey that can be backer-edited until delivery, providing accurate product counts and robust data exports.
If you want a hassle free pledge manager so you can concentrate on the tricky things – like getting a product out the door – then BackerKit is absolutely that solution. It’s easy to use for creators and backers and solves problems that you didn’t even realize you had.
