Please don't troll or turn this into a flamewar (again...). Obviously there is more to the story, so sit tight folks.
As for the donations from Project Zomboid, the Indie Stone announced that if the situation remains as murky as it was before, they will donate the $4000 raised to Doctors Without Borders. They've also said that they've worked it out with Desura so anyone who wishes a refund will be granted one. However, the refund will come out of their own pocket, as they don't want to dip into the donations to do so. Pretty classy in my opinion.
Hey. I came across a story earlier today that seemed quite sad.
You should probably read the full version, but essentially an indie developer named Chloe, who made the free (and awesome) Homesick, is actually sick. She has metal poisoning thanks to a piece of shrapnel lodged in her body after a car accident three years ago, and it will eventually be fatal without the necessary surgery. As many of you know, healthcare isn't free in the US. She's exhausted every option to fund her surgery (insurance, malpractice suit, medical loans, etc) and has now started an Indiegogo campaign to try to raise the necessary money to pay for it.
Some fellow indie developers have come out to support her. Notably, The Indie Stone is making a donation and supplementing it with all the proceeds from Desura sales of Project Zomboid for the next three days (Chloe is a member of their forums). Mike Bithell is also donating the proceeds of all direct sales from Thomas Was Alone and is also trying to organize an indie bundle or Because We May-ish thing or something.
If you've considered buying either of those games but never got around to it, now would be a great time to do so. Both include a Steam key as well, if Steam is your thing (Well, Zomboid still needs to launch on Steam, but you will get one).
Before anyone asks if this is a scam, which I agree is a pretty valid concern, the campaign has since been privately verified by Indiegogo (they froze the campaign after a few people sent them emails about the possibility of fraud, but have since concluded that it is legitimate).
