Good news and bad news on Indiana Jones and the Fountain of Youth. The good news is that they have a demo out, the bad news is that they're asking for donations in an effort to get the voice actor from Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis to reprise the role of Indy for their game. Correct me if I'm wrong, but couldn't asking for money for a fan game, even on a voluntary basis, create worse legal trouble than a simple C&D letter?
Once the votes are read, the decision is final. The person voted out will be asked to leave the Tribal Council area immediately. I'll read the votes...

Yes it does, very much.

Imagine if KQ9 ask for Donations, VU would shut this Website down in a flash and no Fan War will ever work to get this site up again.

The Admins and Mods will get sued and no more KQ9, ever.

The mods probably couldn't, they're just there to keep the forum on-topic and prevent falme-wars. :P

lol, that's a drastic way of putting it, but yes you're correct. :P

If we asked for any kind of donation (and a lot of people have offered actually), we would probably have received a C&D sooner, and most likely been sued for intellectual property damages, exceeding anything we could have even made from the donations.  The site would most likely have gotten shut down, because it would be seen as funded from this "illegal" money. 

However, everything I just said is that of my own opinion.  I'm not an expert in law, nor claim to be.  Maybe there's a legal loophole that allows accepting donations for the sole purpose of paying someone for a service, rather than for the development of the game itself?  In any case, I would say they're taking a real risky path and definitely not one I would suggest.

EDIT: I just visited the link, and by the looks of it, they're accepting donations for the game itself.  So, yeah, definitely not a good idea IMO.
