New Launch Now option allows creators to go live at their convenience

Crowdfunding website Kickstarter has simplified its rules for project submissions down to three basic principles in an effort to make the platform easier to use.

The rules now state that projects must create something to share with others, projects must be honest and clearly presented, and that projects cannot fundraise for charity, offer financial incentives or involve prohibited items.

A new Launch Now option has also been created, enabling creators to go live with the project straight away, or ask for feedback from community managers first.

To date more than $1 billion has been pledged to Kickstarter campaigns, including a number of games and game-related technologies.
