Here we go! The Global GameSpace funding drive has started!
Over the last few months, I hope I've been able to show what potential GGS has, and how it could be a really fun and interesting project for everyone! Please take a look around, and then over at the KickStarter project page. I can't do this alone!
I know what you're thinking: "That seems like a lot of money for free software!" Here's where your support is going:
Taxes, Amazon, and Kickstarter snag 42% off the top. That's capitalism, I suppose. Another 15% goes to making and shipping T-Shirts, and arranging for the telecons to keep you all up to date on my progress. That leaves 43% of the money collected to support the project itself. A good piece of that will go to the good people at Heroku, to deploy the project where beta testers can get to it.
That leaves under a third of the contributions going to other development expenses during the six months of development - testing hardware & software, pizza, caffeine, and having someone watch my son while I'm working. He's just grown these spiffy new teeth, and he bites - it's very distracting.
