Hello everyone, thanks for coming to my Patreon page!
My name is Mony, I am an Independent game developer and general software engineer.
I have been working with computers and technology since I was little. My fascination with computers began when I was around 5 years old. Since that point, my interest in computers and software continued to increase exponentially.

By the time I was 11 years old, I was absorbed in Bethesda's Morrowind. That game included a toolkit for creating mods, which intrigued me. Starting with this toolkit, I started creating mods and learning programming, while having fun learning the fundamentals of game design. This pivotal experience inspired my passionate career in software and game development.

My company, Dragon Lens Studios, is a place where quality games are made. We focus on incorporating successful new mechanics with a spin, and old fashioned retro qualities which many of us enjoyed in our youth. Dragon Lens has a large team of over 30 people to bring different strengths and viewpoints when games are developed. This huge team size allows us to bounce ideas off of each other while working on multiple projects.
Patreon will bring new eyes to each new project we’re working on, causing an increase in innovation and quality. We, along with all these things, are a community based company. We hear what the community wants, and make it! We listen to the people’s criticism, and fix it! We are here for you to provide the best entertainment possible!

Why I am Here?

I started working on games and software as early as 2002. Since then, I have been on my own dime looking to give something to the community that fans, players, and professionals will appreciate! I have always worked full-time jobs that have delayed my ability to deliver gaming and software content. I have a very high standard for the work and I feel that quality is very important when it comes to anything that I produce! I want to share my passion with you! Please help realize my dream of providing amazing experiences for everyone!

Now that Patreon is here, I can politely ask the community and my fans to help speed up the process of the development and improve the quality of Dragon Lens Studios!

With your support we can make amazing games and software together! You are in control. You can unlock exclusive early access to our games and projects as well as special live streams and other exclusive content! Do you like what we’re doing? Or think we need to change something? You can unlock tiers that allow you to give us feedback in REAL TIME!

I'd like to say thank you all for your support, and every donation (no matter how great or small) will help me tremendously on completing this dream.

PROJECTS I HAVE WORKED ON


Phantasy Quest - Awakening (Currently being Developed!)
                                         
Phantasy Quest - Awakening is a throwback to old-school RPGs like Final Fantasy, Dragon Warrior/Quest, and Chrono Trigger with new engine mechanics, an engaging, elaborate, player-driven storyline, and classic elements interleaved together blending new and old concepts together! It’s the blend of RPG elements that fans have craved for years!

Keyboard Kommander (Released!)
Keyboard Kommander is a fast-paced typing game where you, as The Keyboard Kommander, fight off hordes of post-apocalyptic zombies and mutants! Think you've got what it takes to survive the ApoKeylypse?
