The new ChessCraft 1.0 icon.
No More Google+
For some time, it was necessary to use a Google+ group to share private releases with testers. Some of you may recall how convoluted the signup process was just to play ChessCraft. Well, no more! Google+ is going away which means the ChessCraft Google+ group is officially no more.
I created a revenue model called "ChessCraft Patron". If you play ChessCraft a lot, you will occasionally be interrupted by unskippable 10 second popups asking you to become a Patron for 3$. If you do, no more popups. If you don't - no worries, ChessCraft is still free.
Aside from that, there are no ads. I don't want to pollute ChessCraft with ads for brainless nonsense, even though it could earn me pennies per user. This game is a labour of love, and commercialisation is secondary.
