Berkin is creating software & games

patrons

$3
per month
I'm Nicholas Fleck (a.k.a. "Berkin") and I create a variety of useful, free software libraries.

I'm best-known for creating Rant, a procedural text generation engine. Among other things, I am currently in the early stages of developing my first commercial game, as well as a free text-to-speech engine, Sagen. I love creating tools that help other developers be more creative.

Unfortunately, there are costs that come with writing software: commercial development tools, hosting fees, decent computer hardware, and any specialized equipment I need for a project can together get quite expensive. I have started this Patreon campaign so I can worry less about funding my passion, and spend more time improving the quality and feature variety of my projects.

By becoming a patron, you help me deliver awesome software and tools that in turn help the developer community at large create even more amazing things. I appreciate your support!

Goals
$3 of $500 per month
Reaching this goal would enable me to offset the cost of better development tools and equipment, so that I can focus less on money and more on actually writing software.
