This game is sooo gonna rape. Just gotta convince my broke ass friends to spend the 10 bucks. Well worth it to support fellow gamers!

assuming they're all making a pittance, you're going to need to be making like 500,000 a month. I really hope this succeeds but I am sure there'll be challenges ahead. Best of luck, GGG! Believe me when I say that I am hoping you guys succeed in a huge way!


While I appreciate your sentiment, we do get by on less than $500k per month :)

Until this month, I had never been paid by the company. Now I can eat.


You guys looking for interns? Many of us would be willing to work / help GGG for free to promote the game and such.


That'll be nice.
Thanks so much for all of you and your teams hard work! I really appreciate the opportunity to enjoy such a great game!
Some 20 years ago a small company named Blizzard North created an awesome game like this. I've been using their products for all that time.

This is the first time I've been hooked on a game outside of Blizzard's stuff. Amazing stuff guys...thank you for all of the effort. Not that it means much but I promise Friday I will join the thousands of supporters!

My questions is when will we see "World of Path of Exile"? :D

Now, now, one miracle at a time. XD

Awww yeah!
I think the idea about the 500k a month is based on paying all 18 people perhaps a year, not a month, (unless he was trying to take in all expenses into account)


500k a year to pay 18 people averages 27,777 and 7/9th a year.

so they'd need to make 500k+ a year just for salaries, + whatever operating costs/taxes/etc.

I am poor in real life (job market dead or employers dont wanna pay). I will gladly give 10 euros per month via paysafe :).
