What is MonoGame.Extended?
MonoGame.Extended is a free open source extension library for the popular MonoGame framework. It's designed to help you get a head start on creating your games by providing many commonly needed features that aren't provided in the core framework. Things like an Entity Component System, Tiled maps, Texture Atlases, Cameras, Viewport Adapters, Animations, Bitmap Fonts, Input Listeners, Timers and FPS counters and more..

Why should you contribute?
My goal is to dedicate as much time as possible to helping other game developers create great games. I do this because I have a passion for creating game development tools and libraries. Most of my spare time goes into MonoGame.Extended and other game development tools.

However, it does come at a cost.

First, there's the real physical cost of hosting websites, build servers and purchasing or renewing software licenses. I currently pay for this stuff out of my own pocket, but I don't have endless spare cash to give away forever.

Second, I would like to support more 3rd party game development tools and a wider variety of file formats in the library. To do this I'll often need to purchase a license for a tool so that I can create and test the importers.

Last, but certainly not least, I'd love to spend a lot more time working on the library and other tools. My spare time is already stretched between having a full-time job, a family and supporting the growing community of developers using the library. With enough funding I could one day flip that around turn my spare-time job into my full-time job.

With this amount of funding I will be able to continue development for longer without using money out of my own pocket to cover hosting and licensing of required software.
