Bearded Giant Games is creating amazing games for Linux

Bearded Giant Games is a small, one man, company. I have to focus on designing, producing and programming all the games within a small budget and I cannot afford to spread development over a long time. Focusing on porting or developing for multiple platform eats away at other areas and I rather release the best game I can release. Since Linux is my favorite development and regular usage platform I’m going to focus on it specifically.

The Linux 1st Initiative
I've been using Linux almost exclusively since 2006 when I first made to jump to it using Ubuntu 6.04. With the recent rise of Linux in the gaming sector I've successfully managed to start and run a business that caters to Linux users specifically. I design, develop and publish games for Linux under a manifesto that I affectionately call The Linux 1st Initiative. You can read the manifesto here. The latest game to come from this initiative is Farm Life.

The reason for this patreon page
With the successful release of my latest venture, Farm Life, many customers reached out and inquired if there other avenues, besides paypal, that they can use to support me. Sadly, at this point, Stripe is not available in my country, and I cannot afford to integrate and use other payment methods. As such, under advise from my fans and friends, I decided to setup a Patreon page. 

Payments and Rewards
By being a patron you'll receive access to all my BGG games past and future and every other tidbit related to them: Development logs, early access to my tools and frameworks, beta builds and access to a Patreon-only Discord channel.

You can pledge any amount you want starting from 1$ and you are free to choose any reward you want. By pledging you'll help me do my part in supporting Linux as a viable platform for gamers and developers.

The 5$ tier pledge gets you keys to all my current games as well as access to any further games I develop (+ all my patron only posts)!

Goals
$31 of $1,000 per month
Starting a new business in today's market is hard! I'm lucky enough that I can do this for peanuts. With just 1000$ a month I can keep the lights on and focus on making games without having to alter my Linux game development schedule by chasing freelancing gigs and opportunities!
