A Note On Shareware

Jardinains! is shareware. It is real shareware. It is not a crippled demo, it does not nag you to register, it does not install anything besides itself, it does not report in to the home office, it does not display ads. It is a fully-functional, annoyance-free piece of software that you can play for as long as you like. I made this game so that people like you could have fun playing it, not so that I could make a quick buck off the unsuspecting masses.

That said, if you do like this game, please consider giving me a donation. I have poured countless hours of work into the code, music, sound effects, graphics, documentation, and testing for this game. While it was indeed a labor of love, there was a lot of work that really couldn't be classified as "fun", such as spending entire weekends of my time debugging one stupid little sound glitch. In addition, I have registered software, tools, and the Jardinains! domain at my own (non-trivial) expense, and I would like to be able to recover these costs if I can.

So if you have a spare moment and some spare change, please consider making a small donation to me at the Jardinains! website. The amount of your donation is entirely up to you and what Jardinains! is worth to you; to make things as easy as possible, you can send me a micropayment through PayPal by clicking on the button below. If you're a student, unemployed (like I was for much of this project,) living on a fixed income, or genuinely short on cash for whatever reason, I'd still love to hear your feedback. I love making games, but it can get daunting at times; to know that there are people out there who like what I do makes it all worthwhile.

IMPORTANT: I have been having trouble sending level packs via e-mail in response to donations. Until I've resolved this issue, I am disabling PayPal donations. The CD is still available. I'm sorry for the inconvenience!

...or, if you're not comfortable using PayPal, drop me a line at tom@jardinains.com and I'll let you know how to get in touch with me by way of surface mail.
