    People simply don't know, usually there is a newpost for a fundraiser. And maybe posters don't know Bt, not everybody lurks in adventure gaming. So I think its a pretty decent turnout actually.

    Yeah, there's no newspost, I only noticed this by chance.

    Blackthorne I haven't played your game (yet?) but I chipped in. Best of luck.

    Sorry to hear about all these kinds of troubles. I would donate if I could, however i am but a young, dumb, broke high school (well college soon) kid, with very little to my name. I did just purchase a copy of Quest For Infamy on Steam using a gift card I got recently, so I hope that at least some of that money can go toward helping in this. I wish all the best for you and god for you for sticking with things like this and not giving up in the face of adversity as many do. :salute:

    Hey, I think ANYTHING collected here is a nice gesture, seriously. As someone put, I'm an adventure game dev, we're a small but loyal crew here. And I know how many people here are broke/on a budget. I've been there myself, so don't ever feel bad about not chipping in... things like this are a gift, not an expectation, and I really just like it more when I hear people playing my game. I mean, in the end, if this all goes to shit and I shuffle off, the game will be here longer than me. Thanks for picking up my game, Wayward Son, and for the well wishes. That shit matters.

    Bt

    So I finally bought QFI last weekend when it was on GOG sale for 2 bucks. It was something on my wishlist for awhile and kinda forgot about it. I think a few negative reviews deterred me from getting it earlier. Not very far yet but having a good time with it and wished I'd got it years ago. I feel like a dirty thief, not only because I'm doing the rogue path but 'cause I snagged this nice game on the cheap.

    Don't die, Blackthorne. The world needs more point and click adventure RPGs. I plan to buy Roem to Ruin day one and hopefully QFI 2 someday as well.

    This needs to be retwitted at least. Front page would be better.​

    I'm glad you're having a good time with it, man! That's good news. I love that people can still discover it and be like "Hey, I like this!" It's okay to get it on the cheap, I'm just glad people still play it.

    Love QFI! Loved Order of the Thorne too. You guys gotta keep cranking these babies out.

    Didn't know about this fundraiser, but I'll give what I can.

    I only became aware of this thanks to some misguided troll that apologized in Site Feedback.

    The Codex fundraiser might need some time to get traction. I'm sure that I'm not the only one here who never visits the front page, and only ever notices news articles thanks to the news section of the forum. ^^
    Anyway, donated a little and checked if I already have bought QoI (I have, probably on some sale though).

    I'm sorry for anyone who is at the mercy of the US healthcare system, but your story is absolutely fucked up anyway.
    That's what happens when you use luck as a dump stat, people.

    But seriously, get well... And then stay that way.

    Fuck. Fuck. Fuck. Just takes the wife's kidney. She'll do fine with one. As I understand it, it could give him at least a few more years before the new kidney starts developing problems again, right? And, there is the slight chance that everything will work this time.
    The guy is brave. Honestly I think I'd do anything to cling to even a few more years if I was in his place. This shit makes me depressed.

    Things have been tough; a week in the hospital, and I'm starting in center dialysis now... but I'm pretty resilient. I'll bounce back. Thanks for all the support, fellas. Seriously.
