MSA 2! Funding Poll and Possibilities:

Journal Entry: Sun Nov 3, 2013, 1:04 AM
Ten months have passed since "MSA: Fluttertime!" was wrapped up and released to the public, to the everlasting joy (not my words xD) of those who experienced Lance's shenanigans (always wanted to use that word) at that saucy, messy students dorm where he had the utmost pleasure of becoming its provitional landlord. Now that we're nearing a year since it's release, it's sequel "MSA 2!" was long discussed, evaluated, and many probabilities and ideas have been pitched and tested.

Since this IS and always was a one man project (yours truly), the ammount of work, learning and sheer time and sweat (not... that kind of sweat... don't start with me), and now that it's been longly proven that such a project can come to light (and even better, be optimized), I thought that it was due time to start analyzing the possibility of the community to get together and throw here a helping hand to make all said work viable in the long run (we all enjoy these steaming, saucy projects (me of all people xD you know me), but sadly... devotion to my work won't refrain my landlord to kick my rear, neither it will fill my belly (yeah, survival is a bitch, out in the woods or in the middle of the city...)

Thats why I decided to make a preemptive poll to ascertain the degree of success a funding from you, the watchers, and admitedly, final public of these series of games would have, so cutting to the chase, here are the details:

PROCEDURE:
----------------

1) The donations would be personal, that means no "middle man" (like "Kickstarter" or "Offbeatr"). Why? Well, because "Kickstarter" doesn't allows fundings for "+18 Adult Material" (spoilsports -.-), and sadly, sites like "Offbeatr" which do charge 30% of the total gathered sum (so I'd be technically working for them, not me or you... leeches -.-)

All I would do would be: Display my PayPal account information required for anyone to send their donations and that's it. Anyone can donate almost any ammount, anytime.

2) The advantage of having no "middle man" in this would be that there's no deadline, so I can prepare the best product I can muster and reaching a certain quick date wouldn't automatically cancel the game's release.

Obviously I wouldn't start a donation pool if I were to back off or cancel the project, so I'd only START said donation pool campaing once the product has reached a stage where finishing it wouldn't be a problem (I don't start donation pools when I'm just sketching a couple scenes, I do so when the game is more or less halfway through).

Of course, I think that my ability to make such a project a reality is pretty evident since I did the exact same thing... twice ("M.S.A. Fluttertime!" and "S.t.P. The Black Box"), so if the poll shows promise and the project goes smoothly (and only then), I'll officially open the funding for all of you to donate. (Again, this is just a trial poll to test the promise of a possible donation pool).

3) The goal would be around the 2k-3k U$D mark, more or less. I've come with this goal by dividing the ammount of people needed to fulfill said mark by $25 (the average ammount a single person usually donates through Kickstarter or Offbeatr). It's just an approximation, but that would represent... less than 7% of my regular watchers through all my channels (DA, NG, Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, etc.), and it's also the regular income for an average worker at a game developement company here in my place, so it sounds both fair AND realistic.

WHAT I NEED YOU TO DO NOW:
---------------------------------------

Having checked the info above (if you didn't, don't be lazy, just move your eyeballs half an inch up -.-), I only need all of you to just vote on the following poll for now, to see how possible (or impossible) this approach would be:

Here's the poll: fatelogic.deviantart.com/journ…

Based on the results this poll ends up throwing, I'll evaluate if this is a viable option to get "MSA 2!" finally up and running :D

THE POWER IS YOURS!!!!

I may not have a paypal account for paying you, but I'm sure as hell want the "Round 2", to quote R.D, be launched.

I have faith on you, you can do this

I could consider some minor incentive like being named on the credits as supporters of the project or something like that, but basically the donation's reward is the game itself :S I mean, if I can't "live" from my job, I can't work with this, so if there's no profit whatsoever, the game won't be made because it consumes a ton of time and effort in exchange for nothing... and life sadly won't let me exists that way :S That's the entire point of the donation pool.

This is just a preemptive test to see if opening a donation pool is really worth the time and effort. If it comes out well enough, I'll open said donation pool for real once the project starts taking shape.

Nah, I never said I considered the site creepy. I just have no connection with it, so it seems out of place, that's it.

One third of all gathered money? That's fucking robbery!
