    See nothing wrong with having a dedicated thread for bringing up wank the gaming industry comes up with to rip people off though. Maybe rename it?

    There's anecdotal evidence of such things being implemented since forever. They were just first to file a patent. gg legal team.

    Also does it mean they can sue Wargaming NA now? Or Gaijin?

    I make one suggestion and suddenly I'm "good at these things"? Shieeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeet.

    also, you didn't page me yet

    Coming up with a title that is just for video games (and not capitalism in general) is hard. Could try something like "Ruining dreams for fun and profit (Corporate malfeasance thread)".

    The last bit was good, going to tack that one on the title so it's a bit more descriptive at least.

    Not sure if this is the place to post... But I've been dinking around on making myself a game on my spare time over the last year or so. It's both a passion project but also a way to teach myself coding, design and art, so I've been enjoying it.

    Since I hate everything regarding the current video game industry (early access, DLC, loot boxes, ect ect ect) my idea when its done is to give it away for free, and if people enjoy it they are welcome to toss me a few bucks via donations.

    Stupid idea and I'll never get any money worth anything? Or 'Hey, not bad! Go for it!'?

    Depends on the quality mate. FHC will make sure the world knows about it if it's gud.

    Either way i hear patreon works not only for porn games.

    Patreon for post release? Cause I don't want to ask for money when I have nothing to give anyone (another thing I fucking hate about video game industry atm).

    Yes, that is probably the route to take. I mean, I take it your game can be expanded on and needs patches/updates post release anyway and if people find it enjoyable and would like to see you support it they will chip in on your Patreon.

    It's a hobby project, but also your baby that you want to care for. Releasing it for free will not put unrealistic expectations on you, which in turn might kill your motivation in the long run, so it's not a bad idea.
