Hi, Scimuse, and sorry for our late response.

Welcome to the Blackvoxel forum and thanks for your contribution offer. It's good to see some users want to support the project.

Yes, the contribute button doesn't work at this time, so we can send you our paypal reference directly to your email.

About Steam store, yes Blackvoxel was Greenlighted. But to make things short, as the game switched to free software inbetween, the GPL v3 licence complicated the process.

But you can expect that Blackvoxel will integrate traditional free software distribution channels in addition to the download section on this website.

Hi D3X0R, glad to see you.

That's an interesting information. Thank's for the exemple.

As far as we know, GPL V3 didn't forbid to charge money. It's explicitly permitted.

In fact, when we were Greenlighted, Steam send us a message a few days after to warn us there might be some incompatibilities with GPL V3 and their distribution contract.

At this point, we think that the question worth to be considered and we'll investigate more.
