About

Hi! My name is Stanislav Costiuc. I am a Lead Game Designer at Ubisoft, currently working on Watch Dogs: Legion. However, during my free time, I work on this channel: Farlands School of Game Design! 

WHAT IS FARLANDS?
On the Internet, people can find a lot of information regarding design theory and design analysis, as well as different insights on more specialized websites. However, what is clearly seen when you start interviewing aspiring or junior designers, is that there is not enough sources talking about what it actually means to be a Video Game Designer, what are the processes and mindsets. Farlands School of Game Design is set out to teach how to actually work as a designer, and improve, and in general help out people wanting to get into the profession as much as possible!

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF BEING A PATRON?
If you support my channel with 1$/month, you'll get access to a Discord server where we discuss games and game design, and you're free to share any of your work in progress projects so we could provide feedback and discuss potential improvements.

For 3$/month you'll get a special thank you mention in all videos on my channel.

And for 5$/month you will get early access to all my videos! 

WHY DO I NEED THE MONEY?
Quite frankly, student loans. I still have to pay them for the next 8 years, which sinks my budget and prevents me from upgrading my equipment that I still use from 2011. With your help I can stop worrying about the loans and gather up money for new equipment and software to make even better videos and more comfortably.

IS THERE ANYTHING ELSE YOU WOULD LIKE US TO KNOW?
Yes. As mentioned, I have a full-time job at Ubisoft, which means everything that is related to this channel I'm doing in my free time. This means that I do not have a regular schedule for my releases. I am devoting as much time as possible to the channel and Patreon, and try to keep a minimum of two videos per month, however depending on what is going on at work and in life, my activity can either speed up or slow down, so please keep that in mind if you're thinking of pledging. Regardless, thanks for your support!
Goals
$55 of $500 per month
At this point, all my student loan payments will be safely covered, and I can start thinking about upgrades for channel. I will for sure prepare something special for patrons as thanks, though it is yet remains to be seen what.
