We're excited to announce that we are starting a crowd funding campaign to help us complete the development of Volume I of our Business RPG, "Profit Motive". We need your help to spread the word!


Project Status

  • Profit Motive: Volume I is 70% through production and already thousands of people have played the game. You can download the work in progress demo of the game Here
  • We are seeking to raise $48,000 to complete the full game (Help Fund)

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Current Count: $1,456 of $48,000

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Our Goal - $48,000 To Complete The Game

Our goal is to get the funding we need to finish Volume I of Profit Motive so that we can upload and sell it on the largest digital game retail site, Steam as well as from our own website.

To do this, we need to reach our funding goal of
$48,000. This is the amount we'll need to finish paying our team to help us complete the game. The estimate is based on our expenses up to this point (which we have tracked since the beginning of development) and projected forward 6-to-8 months, which is when we plan to release the final game.

Why We're Raising Money

Until now, the game has been funded 100% by myself and co-creator Bryce Diamond. We've paid for all the artist, programmers, writers, law contracts etc. out of pocket for as long as we could. However, now we’re at the point where we are in need of generating income through other means in order to finish the project.

How You Can Help

Help Fund


First, and most importantly, you can directly help fund the project by visiting our Website (http://www.profitmotivegame.com) and clicking on the "Help Fund" button on the front page. Even if we can't reach our goal immediately, any support we get now will allow us to continue development and raise our chances of securing more sponsorship later on.

Any donation $7 and up guarantees you a free copy of the final released game (which is estimated to retail between $10-$12).

We are also offering special Investment Incentives, such as royalty shares on net profits of game sales, to those willing to contribute amounts of $1,500 or more. If you are interested in contributing at this level, please contact me directly at: sage@profitmotivegame.comor kulimar@gmail.com for more specific details.
