Hi, my name is Andreas and I like making games.
The one above is called The Apple of Need, it was made in less than a week, and you can play it here (It works on mobile, too!).
Because of my current possibilities as a developer, I enjoy making really tiny but strong games. Because my background is art and I have a fondness of telling stories, I also like making these games pretty and give them a past. Recently, I started participating in Game Jams, which are a great learning environment and also stimulate me to finish a project in a week or less. Apple of Need was made for the GDN Cherry Jam and it was amazing, since it's pretty much my most polished project and it was done in such a short time. Other examples from there are Wipe Wrench and Boomling Basher (this one is just for computer). 
Over the past year before this, I uploaded my first games on Newgrounds, such as Lemonless or my fan-game Face the Dilemma. In the meantime I also made a series of character stories, Tales from The Express.

Why am I on Patreon?
Why not? It's a great platform allowing creators of all kinds to get paid for What they make, instead of a particular-individual-something they make. It's a musician's tipping hat (or guitar case or whatever), but on the internet.
The way it helps me is that on my current level as an independent game developer, it's very hard to make something serious and large enough to push it as an individual product and get money from the sales. That will definitely work in the near future, but until then I am happy that my work can be financially supported in this awesome place. I am also starting University in about two weeks from writing this, so money will suddenly gain more importance than they had before. :D

Where do your money go?
If you do choose to support me with a monthly amount, I will make sure to use it for game development purposes above all, whether that means purchasing better software like Adobe Photoshop  or Spine 2D, hire help, or something else. If life happens to get in the way, the same amount will come in handy for anything else, and might be even more beneficial to me in the long run. You can find more info in the Goals tab on the left.

Rewards?
I will of course be incredibly grateful for any amount that you agree to help me with, and I'll make sure to show that. All patrons will have their names displayed in the credits of the games I make, and the higher tier ones will also get custom-made cool stuff such as Alien Portraits of them, special stories, and even personalised text-based games. More details in the Rewards panel on the right.

See you around?
You can keep in touch with me on social media on my Twitter and instagram. And in case you decided on supporting me... Welcome Aboard. :)

Thank you!! This means a lot to me, so as a symbol of my gratitude I'll put your name in the credits of all future games I'm making. :)

For this generous contribution, your name in the game credits will also be a link to a personal social media page of your choice. (This is normally guaranteed, unless I'm experimenting with some crazy game-engine that doesn't support links).
Informed Passenger

You will get weekly updates of what I'm making, including any notes of the process or early concept sketches that I don't post anywhere else. You also get your name-link or just name in the game-credits as specified in previous rewards.

Fantastic! In order to be forever remembered in the galleries of the Express, I will draw a Portrait of you as an alien creature and write a little story to go with it, both of these agreed upon by you.

Also, all rewards from previous tiers.

Wow! For all of this, I will turn you into the main character of a personalised text-based game showcasing a story chosen by you. It can just as well be a fast-paced cosmic adventure or a real-life event you are proud of. The time it gets done might vary according to my schedule.

Thank you for ever. As a reward, I will make you the personalised text-based game promised in the previous tier, but it will also have illustrations! Again, it can be about any experience you wish, and the completion time might vary according to my schedule.

Yay!! Thank you! With this kind support, I can afford a new fine-liner pen every time the current one runs out. This will be a huge help towards the linework of the art I do, from individual characters to whole games! And I can also afford an occasional cupcake, for creative purposes, of course.
