WHO ARE YOU?Hi, I'm Alexey Volynskov! I'm 36 and I live with my wife and three cats in Varna, Bulgaria. I was a co-founder and technical director of Gaijin Entertainment, but I left the company, and now I'm an independent game developer.
WHAT KIND OF GAMES DO YOU MAKE?Arcane Worlds is a remake/re-imagining of the classic Magic Carpet, a FPS with flight, spells and some tactics.
LEVEL UP! is a retro-styled roguelike platformer/shooter with destructible levels and huge bosses you can destroy from inside.
I sometimes do small games too, for game jams or as portfolio projects. Gunstuck was made for 7DFPS/procjam, and I'm finishing a free pinball game for Android now.
WHY PATREON?Unfortunately, my games don't sell well, so I can't work on them full-time. I'm doing freelance jobs now to pay my bills, and any extra funding would let me spend more time making my games.
I'm going to post behind-the-scenes and work-in-progress stuff here for patrons only, to give you an incentive to support me.
There's also a monthly article goal - if reached, I'll write an article about games or game development for patrons only every month. I'll ask you what you'd like it to be about.
