How the fuck would you make money and recoup costs then?
Don't tell me it'd be through microtransactions or something like that?
If you're purely making this game out of passion and love, I'll be impressed, but handle things like you want with caution
Money is a good way to increase the scale of your operations and the scope of what you can do, though it also creates risk of loss of integrity, greed, and lots of other problems that can hamper a game
Having no money means the game might peter out if you need to keep it supported in the wake of something unexpected, or any sequels or other games might be very difficult to make
I don't mind paying 15 bux for indie games, or less on sales, plus its a good barrier to entry.
Boomerang guy is the guy with the special snowflake donut steel self-insert who he made pages upon pages of autistic details for. Name is Reize Seatlan, though the cringe I used to see might've gotten wiped already
He got into shovel knight and tries to put himself in every game where crowdfunding is allowed. I think he's some autist.
Green Kangaroo was some degenerate furry who ruined a kaiju fighting game because he was a hyper-funder of it and fucked up development for accommodating his OC.
Furries have a lot of money, but you should only allow it if there is a way for you to keep it in without undermining your artistic and creative integrity
An animated anthropomorph might do that.
Worry about it later when it comes closer and handle things as they go, you're a ways away from the crowdfunding step so its not important right now
For the time being make sure that whatever plans you have in mind for that shit are clearly limited.
