About

I'm Nicholas Fleck (a.k.a. "Berkin") and I develop a variety of free software libraries.

I'm best-known for creating Rant, a procedural text generation engine. More recently, I've developed Cards Over LAN, a CAH clone designed for hosting on your home network. I also do research on speech synthesis, procedural generation, and natural language generation.

Unfortunately, there are costs that come with my work: 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 focus more on improving the quality and feature variety of my projects.

By becoming a patron, you can help me make more games and deliver tools that in turn help the developer community at large. I appreciate your support!

Goals
$4 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.
