Wow, that is impressive! Really an inspiration to see a single guy go the distance.
sorry for all the questions, but how are you planning on making revenue with this(if you are at all)?
No problem, just ask!
I am not sure if I ever will earn money with Forgotten Elements.
I didn't start the project to make profit (as perceived 99% other browsergame/online game developer [sorry]), I made it to realize a dream of mine.
So I will never sell items or other features, that make other players stronger. Forgotten Elements should be fair for everyone.
With the help of advertisement I am able to pay server fee and other business expenditure.
Unfortunately, after getting 15000 registered users only 4 donated money to Forgotten Elements. That's faaar to little, so I have to monetize other features, if I want to continue in 2013.
I thought about selling skill/attribute reset runes, so it is possible to unlearn skills and attributes for a small amount of money.
Furthermore I thought about selling items, which only beautify the players characters.
I think those options would be fair...
But the problem is, that I don't know how to make advertisement for the game, without paying a lot of money.
But we will see, when its done (Forgotten Elements is still in beta) ...
Btw, sorry for my bad english:/
