The Bay 12 Games Report, February 1st, 2020

Mission Status

It is the End of the Beginning?  Nay says I.  It is the Beginning of the Beginning!  A new chapter in the lives of all whose life has been touched by Dwarf Fortress and peace of mind it brings to the bored and those seeking entertainment and still have wonder in their hearts.  With that I will tell you that the work has begun to clean up the mess and propel the trophy to its place in the center of Steam where it will shine for all time.

Now let me say this: You generosity has been like none other in the world.  Why?  Because we keep to our word and bring you the best value that is given away for nothing.  We need you to soldier on and keep up the support until final victory is attained.  That said, now is your last chance to become a champion.  Your support has helped get us this far and so the work to bring you what you need has outstripped our ability to give thanks except in the form of new versions of Dwarf Fortress.

Get that Crayon drawing or Ascii Art Story now, should Armok tarry and the Third Nightmare Apocalypse not come to pass...

"Congratulations to the generous!" -- ThreeToe

Fun with Numbers

Thanks for last month, and I hope you are enjoying the release!  We've already fixed some world gen crashes and other issues and will be cleaning up some more before the first clean-up release.

And yes, as we all discussed back when we got started on Patreon, it was hard to know if we'd be able to keep up with rewards with the new people signing up.  Luckily, we were able to do so for some years even with more than two thousand people contributing.  With the bump early in 2019, though, we finally crossed the line and doing rewards has been significantly taking away from work on DF while at the same time we've fallen behind on our reward obligations.  This has to change, so February will be the last month we have rewards (for Patreon or PayPal or any other method.)  ThreeToe will continue doing stories for the site.  There are a few more specifics on the Patreon post.

January:   $9710.97
December:  $9716.12
November:  $9237.27
October:   $9671.30
September: $9677.35

Reward reminder (February 2020 is the last month we'll be doing this!):  If you support us, you can pick either a Story Reward or a Crayon Art Reward.  A Story Reward is basically a mini-Threetoe story (examples) and a Crayon Art Reward is a crudely drawn scene which we sketch, color in, and mail to you, anywhere in the world (assuming your contribution covers postage, which is about a dollar almost wherever you are).  We take personal requests for either reward as well, he he he.  You can also be listed among the Bay 12 Champions.  You can choose any kind of reward no matter which contribution method you choose.
