    I presume that he/his accountant is already doing that. Here in Belgium I can deduct half of my energy (gaz/electricity/water) (half: because I'm working from home. If I had a separate office it'd be 100%), internet, all hardware/pc costs (even video games or paper magazines), office tools, software expenses, social cotisations and most importantly sub-contracting work. That works both for deducting tax income and VAT too (you get back 21% of those). All in all it's not too bad, but yeah, if you're working on software, you're basically creating value from little so you're heavily hit by the VAT.

    Nice. These monsters don't appear to be as horrific and disturbing as tax law, but they look like more fun.

    Huh, I missed that, thought it ended already.

    RatTower - dude, I don't wanna pester, but could you give us some guidance on that GOG question? I'm sorting out my PayPal at this time and I'd be happy to pitch in, but I'd like to avoid the situation where I back early, get a Steam key on release and then a month later, bam, Monomyth hits GOG. I'd just like to know whether backers would get a choice of store assuming you'll be releasing on GOG (and it does seem like Monomyth would be right up their alley).

    P.S. How does it work through that Kickstarter Encore thing? On release, do we get our key at the e-mail associated with the PayPal account? Or is there some other registration involved?

    P.P.S. Get an SSL certificate for that webpage, man.

    Looking at that moving shot doesn't give me a lot of hope that sway was taken out/lessened. I might not be able to play this.

    Fuck.

    I actually got the same feedback about the head bobbing from a guy working at epic :D
    Lately, I have spent most of my time with level design though, so I haven't touched that code in a while.
    Tomorrow I will start with the code refactoring. I should be able to cover that there.

    I can't say for sure yet. I am planning a GoG release and I hope it will be accepted there but in the end, it depends on them. If Monomyth gets greenlit on GoG in time, backers will at least get to make a choice about their preferred key.
    In case it can't be timed properly, I am also thinking about giving out the GoG key to any backer that requests it afterwards.

    There is no registration involved. It's all handled through Paypal and the mail address associated with your account there.

    On my ToDo list :salute:

    Can we just take a moment to recognise how cool it is that these updates aren't just progress reports, but also educating the masses on software and game design concepts? Many of us here probably know about FSMs and the like, but non-engineers get a rare glimpse into the development process and it's an excellent marketing exercise because it reassures backers that their eurobucks are being well spent by someone with a thorough and methodical approach to production.

    Also...
    :happytrollboy:

    God bless you, RatTower, happy new year indeed!

    P.S. If you're reworking the inventory UI at this time, please don't forget about the resolution scaling bug, at 1680x1050 the description panel was cutting off halfway on the left edge of the screen.
