Hi! 
I'm null and I love game design. Currently majoring in information technology and making games in my spare time.

What am I making?
At the moment I'm working on Labrat, a runner game that doesn't rely on procedural generated levels but instead draws similarities to a platformer. It is more like a platformer in which you never let go of the right button, if that makes sense.

You only need two buttons, but their usage frequently changes depending on the special abilities that you currently have. Sometimes you can blink short distances, flip gravity or even break the space time continuum. 

The game is set to release on Android, and eventually branch out to Steam and iOS. Which brings me to...

Why am I on Patreon?
To be as transparent as possible, game dev is too costly for me. Different platforms have different fees for releasing a game, on Android it's $25 for Google developer access, for Steam it's $100 on Steam Direct, and iOS... Well first I'd have to get an Apple device before even thinking about that.
Since I primarily punch words and numbers into a program, and I'm not great at art nor music, I've decided to use resources of the public domain and CCBY licences. However, paying and/or tipping my artists adequately is something I'd love to be able to afford. 
Add in the fact that the country I'm living in isn't really thriving economically, and you get a broke student fueled by instant noodles. Tragic, I know. But enough of sob stories.

Why should you become my patron?
Get involved in the development process! By becoming a patron you can influence the finished product in various ways:
  • have your character make an appearance in game*
  • have references to you, another person or anything else (an item/npc/something named after you etc)
  • have your app or game advertised on mine after the credits 
  • vote on deciding between various design points
  • [more to come, wip - feel free to suggest virtually anything!]
*NOTE: I can't accept every single proposition, as it has to fit the theme of the game in question as well as meet a quality standard. So please always ask first!

Other than that, you also get these other cool benefits:
  • have your name appear in the credits, as well as your @twitter 
  • get an exclusive colored role in the discord server (coming soon™)
  • ask about any feature you see in my games and I will explain how it was done
  • [more to come, wip - feel free to suggest virtually anything!]

If nothing above sounds appealing to you, this will probably sound even less - you will be supporting me and you can sleep at night knowing that I'm eternally thankful to you.
If you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to ask! 

Thank you!
