patrons


Hi there!
My name is Matt and I work as a programmer for over a dozen years. A few months ago, tired of continuous work based on the same schemes, I decided to radically change my life and risk everything I have to achieve the goal that I dreamed of since I first sat in front of the computer.

Start making good games!

Gates Of a Ruined Empire is my attempt to create a demanding real time strategy in the high/dark fantasy universe I have created over the years.

This Patreon action allows me to fully devote myself to creating my dream game. Thanks to this action, I had the opportunity to meet many people who, like me, want to create the best RTS game in history. Thanks to their help and your financial support, the project is developing more and more dynamically.



If you are not familiar with G.O.R.E., I invite you to our website, where you will learn more about the game itself. If you want to be up to date with news, subscribe to us on Twitter

A brief description of what Gates Of a Ruined Empire is:

  • G.O.R.E. is a classic RTS, in the sense of old Warcraft and Starcraft gameplay, which means you have control over each unit individually. The game, however, puts the main focus on development strategies instead of the arcade approach
  • Branching modification of weaponry of units during the game, forcing the player to adapt the strategy to the prevailing conditions.
  • Anti-rushing mechanics that make sure GORE is a strategy and not an arcade like.
  • Instead of "Stone Scissors Paper" you have "Stone Scissors Paper Lizard Spock". Thanks to the fact that the unit has slightly more parameters than attack and defense.
  • There is also a deep single player campaign aimed for an adult player.
  • Complex game world, having its own history and cultural determinants

Why Patreon?

As I wrote at the beginning I am a programmer. I have a lot of experience in designing and creating software. I can design and write code 24 hours a day. All I need is coffee and cigarettes.
The problem, however, is that not only a programmer is needed to create a good game. but also graphic artists, sound engineers and many others.
I want G.O.R.E. to be the best possible game I can design and create. To be able to devote myself to this project in full, I gave up my job and created Dark Oath Games.

How do I want to fund this game?

Patreon is the first phase of financing this project. How quickly I prepare a playable demo of the game depends on how much money we collect here. Then I will be able to fully present to the world what the uniqueness of my project is all about.
The final stage of the funding of this project will be a Kickstarter campaign. Funds will be used to refine and expand the material that we will have after the end of the Patreon.

WHERE YOUR $$$ GOES?

Mainly for software licenses necessary for work. Adobe and Allegorithmic packages, I pay for myself. However, as part of the progress in designing it would be useful to buy licenses for Maya.
It would also be good to have additional software to help me work with animations, sounds, clothing, motion capture and other stuff.
Game production costs at a high quality level are high but achievable. I put all my money which i earned as a "senior programmer" into this project. However, this is a small part of the needs, and I must admit that I would like to entirety devote myself to working on this game. With your help it is possible. Every dollar counts!

What will you get out of it?

As I have already mentioned, the campaign on the Patreon is the first and most difficult stage of project fundraising. My goal is to create the base structure of the development studio and to prepare a playable demo in full quality. Therefore, the Patrons will receive the most profits from the support for the project. A copy of the finished game is just one of the prizes. My goal is to provide G.O.R.E. with a balanced multiplayer service with a ranking system and a polished look. Therefore, the Patrons will also receive unique 3D avatars for multiplayer games, thanks to which the whole game community will know that it is dealing with the person who provided G.O.R.E. with key support. You will also get access to the decision process regarding the details of the graphic design of the game, and the ability to suggest gameplay elements. Moreover, each of the Patrons gains access to materials showing the progress of work on the game. If you are curious how a game is created from scratch, these materials can be very interesting for you.

The number of prizes for patrons will increase along with the progress in financing the project. I do not want to promise you anything I cannot deliver, but I am convinced that together we will achieve the goal and create the best RTS game what the earth has seen!
And you'll be part of it!

It's time to embark on a epic journey!

I hope that I interested You enough to join my Patrons.
Become a part of it and join the group of my patrons. We have a long and satisfying road ahead.
When we do this, we will be proud of ourselves.

See you in the world of G.O.R.E.!
