If you’re going to be working on this game without getting paid you can at least set up a tip jar.
I think my reply went something along the lines of:
I have thought about Patreon, but I don’t really have any rewards to offer for any kind of tiered approach. Maybe that could come later when the underlying engine is more stable. However I did set up an account on Ko-Fi, so that anyone who wants to send me a little incentive can do.
Update: Over a year later, no one has.
