I've added a donate button to this blog, it will be there temporarily until I've got the website up and running. The money donated will be used to fund artwork and sound effects for the game, in that order.
Since I will pay the artist with what I've received from donations, I won't be able to refund any donations. If you want to support this project, then feel free to do so! Just be aware that any and all donations will be non-refundable.
Here's some perks that I can provide for those who've donated:
If you've donated $75 or higher, you can create a race for the game, and the artist will create the artwork for that race, and it will be included in the game's official races!
If you've donated $35 or higher, you can create a technology to be included in the official technology tree. If you've donated $70 but don't want to create a race, but rather technologies, then you may do so!
If you've donated $10 or higher, you will be included in list of credits as those who've contributed to the development of the game.
One rule about creating races/technologies, they must not be copyrighted materials. So no races from any other 4x games, movies, etc. Technologies is a bit iffy, I will tell you if I can use the idea or not.
All people who've donated will have access to every major build of the game, and will have full version of the game when it's released.
If I've received enough funds to pay for the artwork/sound effects, then I will remove the donate button.
