Welcome dear reader to our Patreon page. My name is Gavin and I am the founder of GamesWarp Studio, a one year old, one-man-band independent game development studio. 

Formerly a senior engineer and project manager, I decided to follow my passion after more than 20 years travelling down a road that was basically leading nowhere... I'm sure you have heard that story before, so I won't bore you with the details. Anyway, that was perhaps the best decision of my life, for here I am - finally able to create fun and innovative games for everyone to play!

I have been playing games for more than 30 years now and have lots of experience with every genre that is out there. Somewhere along the way, I also picked up programming - and as they say, that was a match made in heaven. Over the years, I have mastered C, C++, C#, Visual Basic (the big 4) and a plethora of other languages. Nowadays, when I am not working for a client, I make games (and applications) and then release them to the world for free. At the end of this writeup, you will find samples of what I have released so far - with links for you to try them out directly. In the meantime, I hope you have already watched the video I embedded above... it features game play from Pachinko Parlor, my most popular game by far...

Alright, let's get straight to the point.

I need your help to bring GamesWarp Studio to the next stage. Kickstarter may be a do-or-die-semper-fi kind of website, while Patreon is definitely more crowdfunding friendly, especially to content creators like me. Pledge what you can, so that I can continue to work on getting great stuff out to you. I have in mind several mini-projects I wish to release to the world for free: a shoot-em-up game, an RPG game, several kid-themed games, an adventure, and a sci-fi simulation game. Let's go through what I lack now: I need to invest in a good game development engine - and I think there is no better engine than Unity. I also need funding for professional artwork included in my games. The art you see in our games is either drawn by myself or free art resources obtained from the Internet. Your patronage will help me greatly in these areas.

Alright, I have made my statement... so that's out of the way. Now, for the fun part...


FREE GAMES/APPLICATIONS/OTHER STUFF

Fuzzball's Fortress - this game was my idea of having a reverse Angry Bird game. Instead of shooting at the pigs, imagine you are now the pig being shot at. How would you build your fortress to protect yourself? To try this game for free, use this link, or head over to Kongregate, or to IndieDB to download the free PC Windows version.


Pachinko Parlor - a Pachinko machine simulation game (a Japanese pastime that is a mix of pinball and jackpot). The game has been uploaded to Facebook, Kongregate, and Chrome Web Store. The latter two versions have no means of monetizing implemented. As for the former - Facebook: although a means of monetizing is in place, not a single person has clicked on the "Unlock" buttons for X credits. Anyway, the monetizing system is more for a demonstration to my clients of what I can achieve on Facebook. Plus, here's a big hint - the game is crafted such that you can unlock all machines after just a few hours of play.


Nurture - a minimalistic colony simulation game. Breed these little "Globs" and see if you can expand your colony to a size of 200? All you have to is to move the green earth with your mouse and make sure the Globs bump into each other to reproduce. You should also experiment by placing green earth atop each other to get yellow food coins and ladders. I hope you enjoy this simple but original little gem!



Whack-A-Mole - a game with randomized placement of moles. Hit as many of them as you can before time runs out.


EBook Engine - this demo engine, although not a game, shows an example of other stuff I can create for free. There are currently 4 stories included with the engine. Have a look and listen... they are all read by me. Stories and images courtesy of Project Gutenberg.


Shader Effects - We have released a whole ton of Shader Effects for Scirra's Construct 2, with a whole lot more to come. The first 10 are absolutely free, while all subsequent releases will depend on contributions and donations of any amount. Leave us your contact email and we will send you the files that you have requested.
