In Club Penguin (Both Classic and Island) there was a yearly event based of donating club penguin currency in a big cauldron, there were goals and depending on how much the cauldron started filling, rewards for everyone would start unlocking if im not mistaken. Then at the end of the event the reunited ammount would be exchanged for real money and used for world care or charity.
I have two replies to this, one is that everyone gets a reward based of how many coins were donated in a milestones/goals system (not talems) or two, depending on how many coins you donated you get something.
Not really, the way steam managed the grand prix is that the more money you waste the more turbo or attacks you can use and the more points you get to redeem levels (i leveled up like 30 levels because prix), what we want do is to allow everyone to add a little help even if they can’t support economically, and that’s where coins come in.
Yeah, and to avoid making alta completely ruined a coin can be worth around a cent, but the devs see how to balance that, the point is that coins are kept in a pot or a pit, and the ammount is shown both in real money and in coins, as i explained before there can be milestones to unlock stuff for everyone who helped etc etc
I don’t really like the idea of getting an in-game pins based on a charity, since that is going into weird cosmetics that don’t have much to do with the game, and that is only mentioning it as pins.
It’s also just going to add a TON of exclusive one time items into the game, and that is not the route I would like the game to go down.
The only way I could see this is if there was charity specific items, that aren’t too wacky and referential to the charity (pink ribbon, etc) and appear on the store with a discount during the event, but can still be bought after wards without the discount and the money still going to the charity.
Edit: Though there is the problem (not sure how big) of being able to buy talems, but then have the money from those talems to go to a charity. (which means all talems in the ecosystem can’t be considered assured money for Alta since at any time, all those could be used to buy charity cosmetics out of no where, or at least over time.)
that’s really smart, actually that’s the first thing we thought when we started developing the idea, as an addition to the cauldron and replacement to the free cosmetics, a specific item of the rotation is purchased and a percentage of the income on THAT specific item goes to the event.
this is not the case since the collected money in-game during the event for the cauldron is only Coins, buying Talems shouldn’t be relevant to the event whatsoever or affect it in any way, and the only way Talems would be considered into the event would be with the specific item purchase % that you said.
