Crowdfunding is amazing

I’ve been thinking about crowdfunding for a while, and I was generally aware from industry stories and client experiences that it is an interesting way to get funding for games.  Besides which, I’m interested in how best to make it work legally (more on that later).  Then I was asked today to look into some notable examples of crowdfunding for games.  5 minutes into a Google search on the subject blew me away and I felt I should share some of what I found with you.
