8-Bit Funding Gets Refreshing Redesign


Portland, OR - August 9th - Launched earlier this year by Geoff Gibson on a skeleton budget, 8-Bit Funding has been a prime location for indie game developers to get the funding they need. Today, 8BitFunding.com takes the next major step in it’s continued development with a refreshing redesign that brings it into the modern age of website design.

“I launched the site back in January for little more than a couple thousand dollars,” said Geoff. “I knew it wasn’t going to be pretty but it wasn’t really an option because the development had to come first. I had to invest all my very limited resources into making sure the site ran correctly before I could focus on the design. Today marks an important date for something that I’ve desperately wanted to get done since the launch.”

Earlier last month, 8-Bit Funding also introduced a more streamlined payment method via PayPal where when a project gets funded that money immediately gets deposited into the project creator’s PayPal account. Using this manner of payment, project creators can immediately use the funds rather than having to wait on some arbitrary date to come and pass.

“There’s still much more to be done like adding private messaging and possibly a forum,” Geoff continues “but at least for right now the site is presentable and up to the standards everybody expects of a modern day website.”
