Advanced Search allows you to create custom searches using a wide variety of filters, including location, category, tags, and even a way to view only live projects. Search results can also be sorted in order of popularity, launch date, end date, or by funding goal. The new default sort, “Magic,” displays a rotating cross section of compelling projects from every category on Kickstarter.
Categories can be selected from the first drop-down in the search phrase. Meanwhile, If you’d like to view a subcategory (e.g. Video Games or Tabletop Games), you should first select the parent category (Games) from the drop-down, and any available subcategories will appear to the right.
By default, projects from everywhere (on this Earth, at least) will be displayed in the results. If you’d like to add further search criteria, you can do so by clicking “More filters” below the search phrase. This will allow you to enter a specific search term, as well as add further filters to your search. For example, projects that have been tagged as a Project We Love, or any that are in your Saved projects, or maybe you want to only see Upcoming projects. You can also narrow your search to projects with a certain goal amount, or the percent they have raised so far.
