Best way to contribute is continue playing the game, telling your friends about it and writing a detailed review here or on metacritic or whatever and write us here about your favorite and most fun moments when you're done (or even while still playing)
As for donations: We don't accept any. This is non-profit forever. But keep an eye open for us. Maybe we'll show up with a later project on kickstarter or wherever. But Wing Commander Saga will always remain free and non profit, including not taking donations.
If you want to do something for me personally? Tell me how much you loved this game and then get Bioware to change the ME3 ending lol.
When we all signed on to this project, we all understood it was an independent, free project that would not include reimbursement for time, energy, or products produced. That is the only way Saga was allowed to exist in the first place. Some of us have literally given years to this project, and I am sure all of us have had the thought of how nice it would be to be paid for it. But that can never be the case when you are doing something that falls within the realm of an IP that someone else owns. This is their playground. They are letting us play in it if we play by their rules.
The contacts we have that have been our bridge to EA have made it clear that any attempts for anyone on the team to make a profit off of any aspect of Saga would lead to it being shut down, with possible greater repurcussions for some or all of us.
Totally understand. Just wanted to support the awesome work you guys/gals have done. My fault for not understanding the ramifications
Regardless, great job guys. You get my ++ and facebook checkmark and whatever word of mouth i can send your way. Story is compelling. Gameplay is FUN AS HELL. And makes me clamor for a next-gen flight sim genre going forward
I suspect that the great overlords of property rights would frown on any coordinated efforts done by this site, even to charity. If you want to donate, pick a local charity near you and toss what you think it's worth at them.
