Answer

What does the big heart on the play page show?

The big heart is the donation meter of AsoBrain Games. It shows the approximate current balance of the foundation. With 100% being fully prepared and 0% meaning we have no money left.

It is not fully automatic because it is not directly linked to PayPal or our bank account. So please don't be disappointed the percentage doesn't go up right after you donate (it is manually adjusted after receiving several donations or a big expense). It does drop in percentage automatically reflecting our estimated daily expenses.

Here are some examples:

Heartbeat Meter Excellent Excellent! When the heart shows 100% we have enough funds to keep us going for several months. The donation page will be disabled.
Heartbeat Meter Good Good. When the heart is almost full we can use your donation but we can still pay for the upcoming bills or unexpected hardware failures.
Heartbeat Meter Poor Poor. When the heart is almost empty we really need your donations. We are not in debt but paying the next couple of bills might be a problem.
Heartbeat Meter Problem Problem! If the heart is close to empty we have no money to pay for anything and are in risk of getting in debt and possibly shutting down the website.
-20% Risk! Hoping this will never ever happen again, there is no example image I can show. If the percentage is a negative number it means we are in debt and in danger of having to close down the website.
