As some of you may soon notice, the next update might have a 1$ charge to it. This is temporary, for a week. It is to help support the game's development.

That said, many have probably wondered what the hell have I been doing for the past months?! Well.... working. Paying work. I hate to say it, but the world can't allow one to just do something for free. At this point, the game developing is a hobby, but I would love to make it a full time thing. However, I also need to eat. And I love my coffee. So, to help support the game design, I have implemented an idea. For the first week an update is out, there will be a minimum cost of 1 dollar. That's it. Just one. And it will only be for the week. So for those of you that want access to the new version of the game ASAP, you have this small gate to go through. However, all previous updates, or after the week is up, you will have free access to the game.


I know this is gonna upset a lot of people. I'm ready for that. However, at the same time, please understand that this small amount helps support the process, as working for free is a difficult thing to do in the big, wide world. We will be doing this for a short time, to see how everyone reacts. If we get piled on with that hate, we will likely be withdrawing this decision. However, if you all are OK with it, and love supporting this game to make it something great, we will keep this plan in action. Thank you.

Well at least it is just a dollar. Some charge a lot more for stuff like this.

That is indeed true. I've seen some hefty amounts put on such things, and did not want to go that route. So, I made it a very small, very reasonable amount. Something like you'd see on patreon. And even then, this was a rather difficult decision to make. I am also gonna try and make a fair balance out of it, so you may find some updates won't even cost anything, such as patches of sorts.

As I mentioned, Me and Tentacle God are taking very careful steps through this process, and will be as open as possible, additionally. We just hope everyone will enjoy what we have to offer when each bit of the game is out.

Why don't you open a Patreon? It Might help you. if you don't have time to do art you can always use the money for the Patreon and get someone else to do it online and you can map and do the events instead while waiting for them.

As much as I would love to take this option, I have already tried it. There was little to no success with its endeavor, so.... yeah. It should still be around, and I might put it up again if there is interest. However, as of the time of writing this, there has been little to none. However, I may  be opening it up again in the near future, should people want to support the game that way.
