I have had this idea floating around in my head for a while now but I am not sure if it will work.
I was looking at the idea of DLC and thought what about if we made some DLC crowdfunded in order to incentivise the players to provide money to cover for the development of it.
Basically the modal I am pondering is this: DLC is announced and a trailer is shown. Next the announcement states that a crowdfunding campaign for the development of it has start and people are free to donate money as a backer. Backers get special rewards such as early access, their name included in the credits, etc. Once the campaign is fully funded development starts immediately and a release date is announced. Once the DLC is finished and ready for release, it is available for free because all costs have been covered.
The other version is to start development on the DLC right away and run the campaign at the same time. If enough people back the project, in addition to the backer rewards, the DLC is released for free.
I am not so sure that this a good idea or not so this is why I am asking.
