Woah! I’m more than a little shocked at the response my last post got! I thought maybe, if I was lucky, I might get enough to send maybe one of the games to the IGF and I’d have to make a tough decision – I wasn’t prepared for this sort of support. I’m humbled 🙂

It’s only been a day and I’ve already got enough to submit both games and then some – in fact, with the amount that people have chipped in I’ll actually be able to do things like, you know, pay my rent next month and pay my heating bill. I don’t know what say! To everyone who helped, thank you, so much!

I’ll leave the link up in the sidebar for now – the same bonuses are still available to anyone who donates, though it’s no longer an urgent matter. 🙂

I hope to submit Don’t Look Back this weekend when I get a chance to write up the entry form, and VVVVVV next week just before I go to London (which will be the last chance I get to work on it before the deadline).

    Yep, I think it’s time you stepped above totally free games. You made the right choice.

    *gets that preorder made…*

    Awesome news all round! Just donated $10 (I’m a little tight on cash m’self but I can think of few other people more worthy of the donation than yourself), looking forward to VVVVV very much! 🙂

    Great news! I’m not at all surprised people donated, you deserve it.

    You well and truly deserve the support, Terry. Your games rock and I know all of us can’t wait to play VVVVVV; that’s for sure. I was happy to chip in what I could to help you out. Best of luck on the submissions to IGF!

    Does this mean you’ll be porting the game to C like you mentioned on 28 August? 🙂

  8. Terry on October 21st, 2009

    Cheers 🙂

    @ZekeSulastin – I hope so! My first priority is to finish the flash version, though.

    I’ve followed you since i played don’t look back! I hope that you can get enough money to survive on for at least a few years! If i wasn’t tight on cash (Freakin’ recession!) i’d donate some money myself.

    VVVVVV looks sweet! I wish I could donate something… I don’t have a credit card or anything.

    Wishing never makes something happen. Go to the bank and ask for a card. You’ll be able to use it at many other places too.
