Donate Button?
« on: January 11, 2009, 03:53:14 AM »
This game provided a good few hours of solid entertainment.  Liked the relaxing atmosphere, and the simple, yet addictive mechanics.  And it was awesome that there was a Linux version!  Seeing that it was still under development, I came here hoping to donate to support future (and offset past) development.

But no donate button?  Will there ever be a donate button?

That's been something we've thought about doing, yes. We really appreciate the gesture! We haven't set up an account for it though.

Also, we'll do a news post about this soon, and I hope it doesn't put you off, but you should know that Dyson is going to be sold commercially eventually. We'll have a substantial free version, features of which we haven't yet decided on but will likely tend towards the old shareware games (Doom etc) in terms of proportion of content of the full game.

Hope that helps - I'll get chatting to Rudolf to see whether he thinks a donation system is still appropriate.

Once again thanks, you've no idea how great this makes us feel.

Awesome!  I'll keep an eye out for updates on this, then.  Thanks for the quick response.

And thanks for supporting bored college students everywhere!  ;)

If you guys do decide to implement a network for multilayer compatibility, I would be happy to donate for a server with GoDaddy or your favorite Dedicated Server provider.
