Hello! My name is Vince, or I_like_pie in the Imperial Conflict community.

What is Imperial Conflict?

Imperial Conflict is an online multiplayer strategy game. It is also a personal passion; not just for me but for our incredible player base as well. Many of us are longtime friends who have been playing off and on since the game's release in 2000.

It's not just a game, it is most definitely a community.

What is Patreon?

Patreon is a service that allows you to pledge a recurring payment to creators.

For Imperial Conflict, that means we have an opportunity to support development costs without having to resort to pay-to-win schemes or other unpleasant methods that potentially compromise the integrity of the experience.

Imperial Conflict needs your help.

In August 2016, Imperial Conflict's previous admin and original creator agreed that a change in ownership was best for the game's future, and accepted my offer to buy the game. After 16 years, it was clear that the game was dying due to lack of active development and admin attention. We went from tens of thousands of players at our height to a small fraction of that when I bought the game.

I've been working on improvements practically full time ever since. We've already come a long way since then, but we still have quite a way to go to bring the game up to the standards that players have come to expect.

Unfortunately, working on Imperial Conflict for 40+ hours a week is no longer sustainable. While I have no intention to pull the plug, I can't justify choosing the game over side jobs or freelancing work. Not without development support.

That's why I'm asking for your help. Every Patreon pledge that comes in will support Imperial Conflict's development costs in terms of money but most importantly in terms of time. Very literally, your payment translates into additional work that I can put into the game's future.

What's in it for me, as a supporter?

Most importantly, Imperial Conflict will keep running and moving forward as a direct result of your contribution.

Anything else?

THANK YOU for your support. I can't say that enough.
