: Today, Kickstarter announced
that it's launching support for campaigns created in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, and Ireland. That means that residents of these countries can start putting together their pitches -- and launch them on October 21, the first day they'll be allowed to go public.
The campaigns will be in local currency (Danish kroner, Swedish kronor, Norwegian kroner, and the euro, respectively) and will be open to backers worldwide.
Research from GDC Europe
suggests that European developers don't rely on crowdfunding as much as they could -- but that they would like to in the future. This move makes that more possible for many of them.
