Welcome to our Donation Page!
Jump to the donations list! *jumps*
Firstly, thank you very much for even visiting this particular page. The magic of "Forge: Loom Sequel" wouldn’t be possible without the support of those who donate.

We at Quill o’ the Wisp strive to ensure that the content we deliver is of the same quality one would expect from a Sierra or LucasArts game of the early 1990s. As can be seen from our Gallery selections, the backgrounds are expertly drawn and (from our standpoint) live up to the aforementioned standard.

The donations section was thus set up to keep art production going, since these backgrounds cost the project between $90-$120 USD each. That said, if you’re inclined to give any donation (even as little as $1), we can reward you for your assistance.


...WIIFM? (What's In It For Me?):
  • CREDIT! It goes without saying that you’ll receive credit for your generosity on our website / forum / completed game.

  • BRAG! You have the right to tell people: «Hey, I worked on that game!» wink.

  • PERSONALIZED THANKS! I'm in no way a fan of standardized "thank you" messages written by bots, so you'll receive a heartfelt and personalized one. The answer will be sent to the email address linked to your paypal account. In case you didn't receive any reply, the email probably got lost in the web jungle, so feel free to contact us and claim it!

  • PRIDE! Even without the perks above, you’ll know you contributed to a project that means a lot to a group of Loom fanatics out there; and supporting art and creativity is something anyone can feel good about.

new In addition to those symbolic goodies, you might receive something else. When we say "might", it means there is no direct relation between your donation (and its amount) and the possibility to receive any of the following extra rewards. Don't forget that you're not buying something, and this is not a perk-based crowdfunding.
Our philosophy is that you should donate for the pleasure of doing so, not to receive something in return (which, truth be told, is called "buying", not "donating").

  • CUSTOM REQUEST! Want to see something personal in Forge? You’ll have the chance to ask our team to include something meaningful to you, be it a bit of dialogue, an item, a special animation, etc. We do have to keep this within reason ( e.g., no chickens with pumpkin heads ;p ), so conditions do apply; but we’ll work with you to make it special.

  • VIDEOGAME(S)!
  • As an indie team working on a freeware videogame we know firsthand the hardships any indie developer has to face every day. It would be nice to act as a family and support each other, wouldn't it? We believe it would. So, by helping us out, you'll also be helping other indie developers. We'll buy their games (unless they decide to offer them freely for promotional reasons) and gift them to you. Perfectly legal and original copies, of course, most of the time in the form of Steam keys.

    Please note that if you'd like to receive any of those two extras, you should specify a valid email address as a message attached to your Paypal donation. In any case, we'll try to get in touch with you through your Paypal email address but won't insist if you don't reply.


Obviously we don’t ask you to extend beyond your means, but any assistance at all helps to move the project along that much faster. A great amount of time and money has already been invested into Forge, and we hope that the demo will serve as a testament to our ardent resolve to finish this game and do it well.

So, thank you again for reading this page; and thank you doubly should you decide to donate below.

new But don't forget what we need the most is talented people willing to offer their free time to support the project! What we hope for is to find people interested in joining the team permanently, but we also gladly accept any small help. It can be a tiny sprite, an animation, an article about us, or even simply spreading the word. Any of these is an extra step towards the realization of Forge.

EXPENSES

Being crystal clear is a must when you ask for money, and since we have a table for donations, having one for the expenses is equally crucial. During the time I've been in charge of Forge there haven't been many expenses though, as the required art for the first Chapter was ready and the rest has been provided for free by me and the other team-members and cooperators. With the release of Forge: Chapter One though, since no pixel-artist has joined the team yet, the need to outsource one or more artists to work on the next Chapters becomes more and more likely. And pixel-art is quite costly as you probably know.

N.B. Some of you might have noticed two really high amounts of money, both in the Donations and in the Expenses table. The truth is 2000 USD is a rough approximation of what Duke Davidson, the former project-manager and team member has spent before I took charge in September 2012. Even though he hasn't technically donated that sum, he did it de facto: he was the one who paid for the initial game art; and when he decided to leave the team, he also explicitly donated that backgrounds and sprites to the project.
Quill O' the Wisp owes him a huge debt of gratitude, and Forge wouldn't be what it is without his generosity.
