I created the MafiaLife game 16 years ago. Way before Mafia Wars built thier copycat and made millions. I could never afford to fight them. They partnered with Facebook and took off into the sunset. I faught to keep the game relevant, keeping it thriving for years with thousands of supporters and chronic players. Until the Facebook games took over. The stand alone MafiaLife website platform could not survive the technology requirements to stay hot in the industry.
Had to fight again, and put ALL my life savings into a rebuild of the MafiaLife game, on the Facebook platform. I used my own money, and reinvested every penny, partnered with programmers and made it happen. The game stayed alive on Facebook, and starting growing fast again. Until, Facebook demanded time and time again to maintain upgrades and add code to stay on it's platform. These upgrades required thousands of dollars each time they decided to upgrade, or my game would error, and stop working on Facebook.
It became clearer and clearer what really needed to happen. The MafiaLife needs to be an application on its own solution, downloadable in the app stores, so it can become what it deserves to be. The best online mafia role playing game.
I just ran out of money. I cannot afford to take the entire game code and have developers turn it into an app. Once the game is up, it has always proved to be self sustaining and thriving, profiting game. It just never had room to grow to where it needed to be. Technical obsticals always blocked. Turning it into an application will give it stability, and remove those obsticles. But, I need help. 16 years into this. I cannot let my baby just die.
The latest FB upgrade shut the latest version down, and without funding, it may have seen it's end. Crowd funding, and seeking help from 16 years worth of MafiaLife supporters who want this game to stay alive, and know it deserves to be a mobile app is all I can turn to right now, unless I hit the lotto.
So, if you feel that need to support my 16 years of hard work, and can help me hit my goal, please donate. And if you feel you can help in other ways, please email me email@example.com and let's talk. Thanks so much.
