|Suprise, suprise !.|
You might have noticed a slight standstill here at Buy a car for Ron Gilbert..
Although the new graphics went up over two months ago, visitor rates are a few dozens a day, in contrast to the hundreds of hits this site had in it's first week. Donations are still pouring in, but at a slower rate, and itâ€™s a shame.
It is slightly my fault. Events in my personal life, and some work overload caused me to spend less time on publicizing this website.
However, to my surprise, I found a 20$ donation has been made today by none other then Tim Schafer himself!
For those of you who only know Ron Gilbert, but havenâ€™t heard of Tim Schafer, heâ€™s the genius behind some of our favorite LucasArts games like Day Of The Tentacle, and Grim Fandango. Nowadays, his company Double Fine productions made the new game Psychonauts, which I havenâ€™t played yet, but I heard was awesome!
Anyways, hereâ€™s what Tim had to say in his blog:
I just wanted to say to you all don't worry! I have a car.
So I'm afraid you're going to have to take your money and spend it here instead. Do it! Now!
Actually, I think Ron has one too. I think. I've never actually seen it. But send that site some money anyway because hopefully he can steal the money and use it to make a game. And that would be the start of a whole new game funding model. Which then I can steal.
P.S. I sent in some money but it didn't show up in their donors list. I swear.
Well Tim, as I once said before, the donorâ€™s list only updates daily. And check it out, youâ€™re in it ! 3rd from the top, too !
And donâ€™t worry, your money wonâ€™t go to waste. If we canâ€™t raise enough money by 25 Dec. 2005, all the money (minus the expenses) will go to Ron Gilbertâ€™s game development efforts !
So you heard the man everybody! Start spending your money here! Itâ€™s for a good cause. Donâ€™t let game developers starve in the US, or rather walk.... Chip in and Buy A Car For Ron Gilbert !
Thanks again Tim, and good luck to all of us !
