Thanks to everyone who's supporting me on Patreon. It's not quite enough for me to quit my job just yet, but it makes me feel pretty good nonetheless :)
The latest update to the game adds the rewards for Patrons: no more ads, free star and empire renames (actually, all in-app purchases) and a little badge on your empire shield to show off to every one else.
Be sure to connect your empire to Patreon to collect your reward (on the Empire -> Settings screen).
And if you want to part of the fun, you can support me on Patreon here.
