Being persistent has helped a game developer. After literally hundreds of attempts, Lyubomir Vladimirov got some "green light" from Elon Musk to develop or continue a video game about the colonization of Mars and SpaceX.
On his Twitter account, Vladimirov explained to the businessman that he was making a game “about the colonization of Mars with you and SpaceX in it. If you think it's cool, all I need is a "go ahead" to use your (company) name and logos. "
The developer promised to make this same post every day for a year or until he received a "yes" or "no" from Musk. It is understood that after 154 days, one of the richest men in the world decided to answer him, on January 13.
I & # 39; ma game dev. and I am making a game about colonizing Mars with you and SpaceX in it. If you think it & # 39; s cool, all I need is the & quot; Go ahead & quot; to use your name and Logos.

"You can steal our logos and name, and we probably won't sue you," Musk wrote on his Twitter account.
The matter did not stop there. Vladimirov indicated that he wanted to give 80 percent of the game's profits to SpaceX. "In that way, the game will not only serve the important purpose of entertaining and sparking interest in Mars, but will also help @elonmusk and SpaceX to achieve it," he said.
I want to give 80% of the game profits to SpaceX. That way the game will not only serve the important purpose of entertaining people and sparking their interest in Mars, but it will actually help @elonmusk and SpaceX achieve it. Btw more dev. progress updates coming soon.

The developer has continued to show previews of Mars Is Flat , the game's possible title, which is intended to be a "highly technical Mars survival simulator." At the moment, there is no release date for it.
It is doubtful whether Vladimirov will not have problems later with SpaceX, because he does not have an official approval from the company.
