It’s been a while since I’ve shared some news about our plans with you, and I figure that now is the best time to do so.
I’ll be discussing a lot of things that have happened to us over the past few months, so this is going to be a very detailed post. So please read it carefully.
What happened to BuyMeACoffee?
Many of you may have already noticed that we no longer support BMAC as a payment method. This has happened because BuyMeACoffee is not a reliable platform for us anymore.
Back in early August, BMAC sent creators an email stating that they will no longer accept Paypal as a payment option.
Among their reasons, they blamed the adult creators for this coming to this decision (as usual).
Not having Paypal as an option obviously hurt our income, as most of you use Paypal as your preferred way of donating to our cause.
Anyway, we stuck with them because they promised to pay our remaining balance as soon as possible.
Well, it’s been three months since I requested the payment and I’m still waiting.
We’re not the only ones though, as many people who use BMAC have made complaints on Twitter.
Overall, we decided not to continue with this platform anymore and instead we are now with HumbleBundle. This change happened in September.
Since we made the change, we’ve started to receive Paypal donations again (which we are really grateful for), and we’ve received our first payment from HB last month. HumbleBundle supports Paypal and adult games, and since we’ve seen many adult games join their platform, in our opinion it’s a much better option for us than BMAC.
But this means that our password-protected page is no longer a viable method for sharing our game.
So from now on, if you want to get DMD v0.20 (and future updates) you will have to donate using the new payment method. Sorry about that, but that’s just the way it is…
We’ve also decided to change the look of our website (mrdotsgames.com) and to merge it with our DMD website.
And the reason for this is simple: We plan on creating more games after DMD and Melody are completed and we’ve realized that creating individual websites for each game, wouldn’t exactly be a wise decision. That’s why we merged DMDgame.com with Mrdotsgames.com.
Another problem we always have during release dates is the constant server crashes. Hopefully, this doesn’t happen anymore. But we’ll find out what happens later this month!
DMD v0.20 release date and new previews
We’ve set the release date for DMD v.20, which will be Friday, November 30th. We are working hard to see if we can release the game on November 24th, but for now, we’ll stick to the first date as to make sure that the update isn’t rushed, and we can include as much content as possible.
Plus, we’re well aware that this will be the last update of DMD for 2018, so we really want to go out on a high!
IMPORTANT: A LOT of important moments will happen in this update. So, make sure to tell everyone whom has an interest in DMD, that they definitely don’t want to miss this forthcoming release! 😀
We’ll be sharing more news about DMD v.20 in the upcoming weeks. A new preview image is scheduled to be posted up tomorrow, so please stay tuned to this blog 😀
Thanks for your constant support, it really means a lot to everyone involved in our projects.
P.S. We just finished and released our latest update of Melody last weekend. So, if you’d like to, you can check it out at my Patreon page – http://patreon.com/mrdotsgames
