Welcome to Dredark's Patreon Page

I've been developing Dredark for around one-and-a-half years, as of creating this page. It's come a really long way in that time, and I'm extremely grateful to have a community that enjoys playing this weird game I've made. That being said, I think it's got a long way to go to reach its full potential. There's so much more I want to add to the game, and so much of the existing content that can be polished, optimized, and balanced.

Why Patreon?

Advertising isn't a particularly great revenue source, and I'm not a huge fan of it in general. Currently, ads are able to cover slightly more than server costs. Having a better source of income from the project will make it significantly more likely for the game to continue existing and receiving updates in the future. I considered integrating a paid membership system directly into the game, but it would take much more effort. I decided to use Patreon since it's an established platform that people trust for supporting creators.

What do patrons get out of this?

The list of current benefits can be found here: https://drednot.io/patron_benefits/

Any in-game rewards will be mostly cosmetic, and will not give patrons a significant advantage over free users.

As an added bonus, pledging means you'll have some real leverage if I make an update you don't like, so I'll be far more likely to act on feedback from patrons.

Warning: Trading Patron rewards for other in-game items, or otherwise trying to profit from Patron rewards in-game is not permitted. Pledging on Patreon will not make you immune to bans or other moderator actions, in-game or on any other community platforms. Pledging will not result in you being unbanned. Patrons will be held to the same standard as everyone else.
