PM message I received today about donations

SENDER:

i noticed that you request donations. what do you need the donaions for? how much do you usualy need? (intrested in donation)

My reply:

well as you probably don't know, around november last year, me and my brother's emails where hacked by a so called "troll" while I didn't directly mind, my brother was much more affected than I was, he worked for an insurance company and had delicate documents, and the hacker got into his work's email account.  Once the company my brother worked for found out, his contract was terminated on grounds that he violated his contract agreement of keeping client accounts and info confidential.  A week before that I had to quit MY job because the company I was working for hadn't paid us in more than a month, and many workers and I quit the company en mase (two weeks later it went bankrupt)...Avian on the other hand has had personal issues lately that have put him in a delicate situation paying the bill and other miscellaneous living expenses, that combined with the economic troubles the US is going through was being to much for him to handle.  This game we are working on, takes time and effort to make, time that both Avian and Me could be spending on working, taking care of our expenses and the such, yet we are working for a game that a lot of people really want.  The game is going to be free to play and distribute once it's done, but during the process of it's development we are taking donations.  These donations are used for helping both Avian and Me soften the blow of economic hardship and as a thank you for spending our time and effort, on this game, while a donation can take from a measly $5.00 USD  - to any amount a person sees fit for aiding us in these hard times, we appreciate any and all donations done to us.

If you are interested in donating, donate via paypal to

It is a privilage to enjoy the game you guys are making, and I'm happy to support you in any way I am able. I know many people here share these sentiments, and I hope that they will take the extra step and pitch in to help.

Hell, even if it's not for the game itself, Avian and Aval0nx are some great guys in a hard time, and we gotta help each other out in times like this. And yeah, there's a lot of people in this kinda mess, but that doesn't mean you give up and quit helping out. You can put off buying something fancy or spending money on coffee or ice cream or junkfood for a day or two, and help an artist out!

Please believe me Aval0n, i'd give you all the help i could, i've always liked the small scale game and animation workers in touch with their fanbase, but if i wasn't above manipulating those who aren't as unfortunate as i, i'd probably still be working at McDonalds and wanting to die.  I'm shit broke, and will be living off of hot dogs and ramen in this fucking dorm with my fucking roommate for at least another fucking year.  Hopefully some fans will have money to spare.  If the project is still ongoing when i graduate and i have some money laying around, i'll be sure to chip in.
...depressed now.  Going to go play the beta.  Hope your luck picks up!

Let's be real. Donations are donations, just like any organized religion donations (sorry Aval0n). As stated in many of the journal Aval0n and his brother, Avian, are going through a financial hardship. If anyone really thinks about donating then they have to take into consideration how much enjoyment do they get out of this game. Then they should consider the amount of manhours spent in developing the game. A measly $5.00 donation would probably feed the develops for maybe a week (if they ate nothing but PBJ's). I look at my own living expenses to figure out how much it would cost for someone else to live. That's how I would come up with the amount to donate. If you can't afford to donate that much then be as generous as you can. There are many people who are not as fortunate as others in this world. If the fortunate help out the less fortunate then maybe everyone would have a better life. I hope I haven't offended anyone. However, I get a little upset when someone asks the simple question what for and how much. My best to Aval0n and Avian with hopes that soon everything will work out for the better.
