About Grey Cart

Who are we?
We here at Grey Cart are a team of translators, programmers, and artists who are dedicated to bringing games to the West that were never properly localized. Our team consists of:

  • Ethan Moody (I go by Moody) - Founder, high level programmer, and PR manager
  • Brento Bento - Japanese to English translator
  • Jesus Mora (goes by RoyalityKnight) - Low level programmer
  • Gii - Pixel artist
  • Alejandro Jimenez (goes by Aru) - English to Spanish translator

What brought us to Patreon?
Initially, we were doing all of our development on GitHub which left a lot out in the open. We came to the conclusion that we should own and operate our own private git server. We all agreed that a Patreon for our projects would help with the purchase and upkeep of the hardware necessary to run a server 24/7. Fans of the Megami Tensei series also expressed their gratitude and interest in our first project (SMT Trading Card: Card Summoner) stating that if we had a Patreon, they'd be willing to chip in a little bit per month to see us work on games that had not been translated yet. Ultimately, this was the final nail in the coffin for getting us to go forward with a Patreon.

What is Patreon?
Patreon is a service where you can pledge to send a regular payment to creators, so they can support themselves and keep making new stuff.

How often will I end up paying?
You pay once a month. We strive to provide multiple progress updates per month, but if for any reason we don't have a single thing to show for the month, we will not charge you.

Why do you need the money?
The money from Patreon will be going directly into upkeep and maintenance of our private git server as well as the cups of coffee necessary to keep our team members going. Keeping our server up and running 24/7 ensures maximum productivity which means more updates for our patrons.

What's in it for me?
For just $1 a month, our patrons will receive exclusive updates on any progress made to our projects ranging from minor details to large changes. This patronage also enrolls you into giveaways we'll be hosting. More information on those will be made available to patrons after their first payment is processed which typically happens at the beginning of the month.
Goals
$11 of $100 per month
When we reach $100 per month, we'll hire on a social media manager so Moody can dedicate all his time to providing development utilities for Brent and Jesus.
