After I read this: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2193
I found out that you guys aren't getting enough money to keep the website up so, I thought that maybe you could make a non-copyright infringing game that you can only download if you made a donation. Kinda like Aboboy's adventure: http://abobosbigadventure.com/donate/
I believe this would help keep the site better funded.
If you think this is stupid than rant on me all you want.

"game that you can only download if you made a donation"

Also otherwise known as "selling".

We aren't doing any special favors/games for donators and we keep them anonymous - at least at this point. I'd rather just eat into my personal reserves than start actively asking for donations.

"game that you can only download if you made a donation" also means that someone who donates basically distributes the file the the interwebs?

He means that they would pay then illegally upload it to the internet.

If they were really struggling with funds to keep the website up, I'm sure just flat out selling a game would be much easier than doing one of those
donate-to-download games. Hell, they could easily make a new Ortho Robot game using this thing Maurice created and sell it if they needed the money.

2d3d platformer has a lot of promise. As long as he solves the design problems I'm sure he'll do fine with it.

Irrelevant since it just refutes the "donate" part because it makes it a sale, not a donation.

I don't think either of us said we'd never work on a commercial project, so don't imply that. And no, we don't have some super secret active commercial project.
