Peril has struck the 'Forge and we need your help! The ChaosForge development PC had a hardware failure and does not boot reliably any more -- time to buy a new PC, and do upgrades. I'd like to humbly ask you for a donation. If the free ChaosForge games have given you a good time, now is the best moment to give something back to help out!
This time, however, I want to do things a little differently -- I want to give you, the donator, something back. Inspired by Kickstarter reward tiers, I decided to do something similar, and to see if it provides an incentive, and to see if it is the right way to go :). The prizes below are for donations done during this Donation Drive only and will be unavailable once it ends!
All of the rewards are digital, because due to the urgent and unexpected nature of this situation, we didn't have time to prepare any physical ones :/.
Also, while the chance of going much over the goal is not big, I promise to have some strech goals planned if it does!
So please, help the ChaosForge survive! And spread the word among fellow ChaosForge players -- we need all the help we can get!
- $16 - Beta Access to all current ChaosForge projects, Supporter status on forum, my deepest thanks, and your name/nick on the next DoomRL version supporter list (startup screen). Unlike a normal donation, your name/nick will be featured on a supporters section on the revamped DoomRL website (before the year ends), with an optional link and/or comment (nothing offensive).
- $32 - The above + your name/nick (or fictional name/surname as long as it is not too silly) will be added to the list of random names (the ones that are picked when the player doesn't enter a name), only if you want to of course!
- $64 - All of the above and co-design a unique for DoomRL (it needs to be balanced though) that can be named after you (as long as it's not downright silly) -- an example is Malek's Armor. They will be rare to spawn *OR* be used in AliensRL with restrictions in the nature of the weapon for the latter. Additionally, you can choose for us to use your name (or fictional non-silly name) in the plot of AliensRL.
- $128 - All of the above + design/co-design (you give the idea, we handle the coding) a special level that may randomly spawn in DoomRL when playing Angel of 100. The level cannot have any new types of enemies but can feature your item *OR* your chosen name may be a major villain/character in the plot of AliensRL.
- $256 - All of the above + Supporter of Chaos rank on the forum. Including access to the Temple of Chaos where future projects are decided and early access (TBA) to the Next Project (TM) -- shape it from where it begins! Also, your name/nick will be permanently on the startup screen as special thanks.
- $512 - All of the above + we'll do a DoomRL mod by your design to be available using the upcoming mod server. It can be even a Total Conversion (support will appear with the next version) as long as it won't take more than a few days to complete. Unfortunately, graphics cannot be included :/. You will be listed as the author.
- $1024 - (just for completeness' sake) All of the above + special PERMANENT rank on forum (your choice of title) + a single version of the ChaosForge roguelike of your choice done and dedicated in your name.
- $2048 - (just because it's fun :P) All of the above + and I'll take part in the next 7-day rogue-like competition realizing your idea (with as much design input as you want to give).
