So here's the situation on the website: it's pretty close to being ready to roll out but we're running into a pretty enormous brick wall here. Specifically, CCBill was unwilling to process credit card transactions for us due to "the content and theme of the game". Most other CC processors we've been looking at have similar policies, and processing our own CC transactions is currently unfeasible.
This leaves us with only a couple of options. One, we can continue looking for a company that would be willing to process our CC transactions for us, and if anyone knows of one that we can go to please do contact me ASAP. This would be the ideal situation.
Or two, we can change the content of the game such that it meets the acceptable use policies of CC transactors. This is not ideal, but it's very possible it will end up being the only option available to us. If push comes to shove we would rather alter the project drastically than drop it altogether, but realistically if there's no way for us to get financial support for continuing the project then we just can't do it. It's too much work.
Specifically bestiality content and references to incest may have to be removed from the game entirely. This may necessitate changes to gameplay, and in that case I do have plans for how to alter the gameplay and still make it fun and balanced. If we end up having to drop donation features like Neoteny I will absolutely refund every cent to donors who contributed to it.
I know people will be upset about this, but if we can't get a company to do our CC transactions we can't make the game at all. Older versions of the game will always be available for you to play.
I'm currently checking out dwolla, and so far it looks very, very promising. This may be exactly what we needed. I'll keep you all updated.
