Berkin is creating software & games

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 also do research on speech synthesis, procedural generation, and natural language generation. Eventually I'd like to start developing games that take advantage of these technologies.

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
$5 of $100 per creation
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.
