First I want to thank you for taking an interest in this online hockey manager game! What started out as a small hobby project has now grown to a fully featured beta with a living community, and I couldn’t have done it without your support!
If you want to know more about the game I recommend reading the core values and key features found at the home page of gameplanhockey.com. I also recommend reading this blog post.
Now down to business. The main goal is now to drop the beta status and launch an official version of the game. In order to do so I need to make the game more stable, improve the server performance and increase the number of game worlds. This would mean that I need to put in more hours and invest in a new hosting environment. So I would really appreciate if you would help me make ends meet financially. And that’s why we’re here on Patreon.
What will the money be used for?The money pledged will help to cover running costs such as software licenses, hosting and hardware maintenance. If enough money is pledged it will also allow me to look at a more high performing hosting option to increase server performance and allowing more game worlds. And in the long run, it could allow me to take a couple of days off my regular work every now and then. If that would be the case I could put in more quality hours into the game and develop more cool features.
What do you get?Besides my eternal gratitude and helping the game stay alive, all who support the game will receive a humble token of my appreciation.
All who give a monthly pledge will be included in a private community. Members of this community will be acting like a focus group to answer special polls about features and future development. Last but not least you'll also get a cool silver star next to your name to let everyone know that you're supporting the game!
If you pledge over $3.50 your account will also be upgraded to an All Star account! This will not help you win any games but it will allow you to access some extra customisation features in the game. The All Star account is not yet fully developed but more features will be added continuously. As a start you'll have the possibility to edit your franchise on a regular basis.
Thanks for taking the time to read this and for considering supporting the game!
