- in the absence of PayPal, it is possible to directly deposit to the author's account
Payment by PayPal

or PayPal.me if you want to use a different currency.
Purchase on itch.io platform
The game is available on the itch.io if you make a purchase there for the amount stated in the table at the top you will also receive the corresponding bonuses available to donors. Of course, after the purchase you will have to wait for the special code, which you will receive from me in a dedicated mail.
Direct payment on account

Bonuses for donors
Anyone who decides to donate an amount can count on certain privileges and bonuses. Their quantity and type depends on the amount donated. Here are the donor levels depending on the amount you've paid (check the table at the top of this page for details).
And here you will find the detailed meaning of each levels and bonuses for donors:
PAPER – I appreciate the author's work but not interested in bonuses
You want to send some symbolic amount as support for the project but you do not want / can not spend too much money for this purpose? No problem, every transfer is welcome. With the amount from this range, you can count on:
- email, personal thanks from the author
- putting on a special page (Donors MB) – If you do not want this, send me an email with this information,
- the priority in the case of special action, if in the future such appear (for example, any closed alpha or beta test future versions)
BRONZE – I will support the project, and by the way I get my in-game bonuses
In this case, in addition, you will receive a special code that version 0.7.5 will unlock the following bonuses:
- Special, Platinum Trophy ' Donor ',
- Additional assistants,
- in the party game mode, the option to start the game 5 years earlier than normal and ending 5 years later (which allows you to extend the game by an additional 120 rounds)
- access to additional creators - so-called "Legends", the greatest movie stars, such as Marilyn Monroe, Zbigniew Cybulski, James Dean, Humphrey Bogart, John Wayne, Bruce Lee ... and many more
- Game+ (Possibility to continue the game after the end of the standard time provided for the type of game)
- Ability to save on disk custom scripts (to use in subsequent games)
- access to all genres in the party game from the beginning of the game (after entering a special code in the search engine)
- possibility to use cheat codes in the party game (but then trophies and movie export to MovieStats are excluded)
SILVER – extra option to MovieStats
An extra bonus for users who choose to donate such amount, the ability to view the complete information about the films of other players in the MovieStats.
By default, in detailed information about films produced by other producers, you can not see their review or cast (this was to prevent mass copying of ideas for good movies). With this donation you will be able to view full information about the productions of other players.
The ability to store your profile in the cloud on the game server. Profile will be exported after the end of the game on a game server. It can be download to another computer (or after reinstalling your computer) and continue to earn trophies and punching stats.
To learn more about storing your cloud profiles, see this help page
Putting photos and your character as the creator in the default set, bundled with the official Movie Business 2 Game.
- Of course, by paying a higher amount, you automatically receive all the bonuses from the lower category.
- The resulting code for the donors is a lifetime for MB2 (ie. When upgrading to the next version of the game should still work) – the only case when it can stop working is special circumstances when for some reason you will need to change the algorithm for generating it (hashing)
After the payment please send me an email with information about this fact (speed up the process of code delivery – in another case, this may take longer).
How long it takes to deliver the code
In general, I try to send a special code as soon as I receive a confirmation of receipt of the donation. However, the codes are generated manually so usually it is no longer than 1-2 business days. During this time, you should receive an email with thanks, code and instructions on how to activate it in the game. If you do not receive such an email:
- Check your email provider's SPAM folder
- Email me saying you've made a donation
NOTE: If you are unlucky and make a donation while I am on a long holiday and I do not have access to the internet or tools to generate a special code, this period may be longer (until I return from vacation). Do not worry, however, you will definitely receive the code as soon as I have the technical possibilities to generate it.
A few words from the author regarding the idea of donation, how much to donate, and why you can not send SMS
If you are not completely convinced by the idea of a donation, you are in doubt as to the amount of time spent on this “small project”. You are interested in how much time “costs” creating a game like a Movie Business? Do you have any doubts what amount will be appropriate as a donation? Why can not you simply send a premium SMS? These are the questions (and a few more), you will find the answer in this text that was inspired by one of the players (Oldhamer).
You can find a list of current donors in the section Donors.
