Important announcement regarding current donors and future donators on my website!

There will be a change in the donation system for Tails of Azeroth. A donation of 5e will grant access to the beta for one month. Minimum donation amount through Paysite-Cash is 10e and through Paypal, OKPAY or Yandex is 5e. People who donated 25e in the old system in August 2017 or later will maintain their access until the end of the year. People who donated before 25e before August 2017 will maintain their access until October 31st.

I realise that this will probably disappoint or anger some of my supporters, which is why I have put this off for as long as possible. However, the situation now is that working on the game has become like a second job to me, but unlike my day job, it doesn't pay anything. The current flow of donations is barely enough to cover the fixed costs of the payment systems per quarter. Currently, it would be smarter to shut down the project and invest the time into something else. But I really want to continue creating these games and it would be wonderful if it became possible for me to do it full-time. That is why I'm going to try the new donation model even with the risk of losing the support of some of you.

I hope my supporters understand why this change has to be made and give the new system a chance. But if not that's okay too, demos and completed games will be released free for everyone always - Blue is Better coming this Halloween and new episode starting in November!

I think this is actually a great idea. There's a lot of so called "game makers" out there now asking $25-$40 a MONTH for some shitty game yet you only ever asked for $25 one time pay and you make some amazing content and would definitely be a shame to have to stop making these games.

I do have a question however, for those paying €10, do we get 2 months of beta access ?! and when does this new payment start as I've wanted to donate again.

Yes, for some reason Paysite-Cash minimum amount button is €10, you get 2 months of access if you used paysite cash. You get access in same day when you donated.

There you go, donated :D I don't know if it's better the way it is now, but patreon might be a good alternative in the future.

Sounds pretty much reasonable at the moment and I hope everything works out fine for you. As some stated, patreon might be a more effective solution, but I have to say that some people will be worried then, that there could be "exclusive finished content" they won't get. So I believe as long as the full versions and some WIP-Screens will be still available for all like at the moment, it will be okay. I wish you the best luck with getting this to work.

Maybe i'm tired, but why can't you just patreon and say "auril is making animated xxx stories" (or something equally simple)? Many I know of do nothing but WoW/Blizzard stuff, merely say "making sfm porn", and haven't had issues. I don't think anyone is going to have a problem with you doing it. Plus patreon would increase traffic alot more.

Something tells me that you should just wait for a bit. ;)

Totally agree, people get thousands dollars doing similar things on PATREON! And it's simple to use for all.

Guys, you should be a little more patient. :lol:

It's a good idea. You should use Patreon, it's the same system you want to use it would seem. the more donation, the more you spend time designing the game. More scenes with Melona, ​​Ysera, Sironas. If it allows to return to a MAJ every one or two week is great. One month is so long.
