Awesome Games Factory is creating Open Source Game Mods

$0
per month
I am a game programmer and designer, with a game design degree.

I've been modding (and making new games) for years, but most of my "free" stuff was never published, much I never could finish it for some reason or another, but usually tied to lack of resources (either time, money or equipment).

But I really like creating mods and games, even better if I can do it in a way that teaches other people about it, or allow them to make their own stuff, or modify my work to suit their needs.

So I want help to become eventually a "full-time" Open Source Game Modder and Creator.

Currently I am working in doing Stardew Valley mods.

FAQ


Is Maurício Gomes experienced and skilled enough to do it?


Well, you can judge yourself!

I made an entire arcade game and cabinet (including electronics, art, woodwork, programming, and part of the music).



I also programmed all games and apps at  Kidoteca, and designed some of them.

And several mods and past games have their code already available on  GitLab

Is this only for Stardew Valley mods?

Honestly, I am not really sure yet, for now yes, because other games (SimCity 4, Starsector) I've been modding don't run anymore on my computer (they cause a BSOD)

But I am open to decide in the future to mod some other game, or even create a new game from scratch, it depends on what my Patrons want, after all.

How much work will be done?

Depends purely on the funding available, the more I get, the less of other work I need to do, eventually being able to go "full-time" here, and beyond that being able to maintain time saving things, for example hiring employees or using expensive conveniences.

Can I contact Maurício Gomes?

Yes! You can find me in several ways, but right now I recommend seeking me out in IRC, on the network freenode, on the channel "stardew-modding"

In the patreon blog I will share details of how I am making the mods.

Also you will be able to vote on what I will work next.

Also, the first 100 people will be credit on all readme files of works created with patrons financing, thanked for bootstrapping this.

You can request a mod, your request will end on the list of mods to be voted on (the reward for $5), unless it is something not appropriate or technically too hard to do, in this case I will suggest you change your request.

Become the Patron of the month.
This mean I will add your name, or nickname, to all mods read-me files.

Since on start we don't have anyone, I will for a while add 2 people, later I will switch to one.

Also, because of how Patreon works, I can't make this ACTUALLY only a one time thing, to do this you donate, wait for it to be charged (currently every day 1 of the month), then cancel it, to avoid being charged again.

So please, only do this if you are sure, I don't wanna take anyone hard earned money by accident!
Pledge $1,000 or more per month

Sponsor a mod!

The limit is actually 1 per mod (not 1 per month), the result is that the mod you sponsored will have your name/nickname/organization name, a link, and a short text added to the mod read-me.

Rules:
  • You can ask to sponsor any mod on the list of "next mods", request a new mod, or request updating of an old mod.
  • New mods will get your sponsorship displayed as the mod founder.
  • Old mods instead you will "found" a feature of some kind, or a maintenance overhaul.
  • I will request you to change your request if you want a obscene feature, or something I can't do with $1000 (because of time ,equipment or technical constraints).
Goals
$0 of $1,000 per month
Ramen life support!

I don't plan in actually living off ramen... Still, this is what I need to "get by" each month right now, without any "luxury" expenses, only food, debt repayments, medicine, replacing damaged old clothes, medical bills, whatnot.
