Hi there, my name is Ales, and I'm a PC gaming enthusiast who loves to take beautiful screenshots and write game reviews. I'm always trying to showcase the games I enjoy playing from their best side, and sometimes I even spend more time in photomodes than I actually playing the game! I also try to write lengthy and detailed reviews on games I've played, mostly about 10+-year-old games, but on some recent releases as well. Currently, I'm posting my screenshots on Steam and Twitter, here is the list (most of them are taken in 4K resolution and without HUD):


Sometimes I go even further and do crazy stuff like trying to recreate promotional "screenshots" of Unreal Tournament 3 by using only built-in console commands, without mods or other graphical reshades (left - official art, right - my screenshots):



Gaming is my hobby, and I never expected to get paid for it from anyone except publishers and developers, but publishers weren't interested in cooperation with me so far, and I either bought all of my games on my own money or won them on giveaway sites/received as a gift from my generous friends. But lately, I had several issues with other real-life matters, and the amount of time (and, more importantly, money) I could spend on gaming significantly reduced.

I live in a poor Eastern Europe country outside the EU zone, my current monthly salary as a software engineer is 350$ for the full 8-hour work day and I don't have other sources of income except for the help of my family. I managed to get such a big library of games because I know where to look for the best deals (I'll probably make a video about this someday) and thanks to regional prices. But I can't buy the new hardware without getting into debts and it's hard to keep it up to date if I want to get the screenshots with the best quality presets and big enough resolution.

I also plan to do other related to gaming stuff, like starting my own youtube channel where I can give my thoughts about games I've played and PC gaming industry trends overall, or finally finishing my own game that I'm currently trying to make on Unity (I always wanted to get into gaming development, but without the real experience I had no luck so far in finding the better job in other studios). But without the financial stability, it's hard to find the time on these things, and that's why I decide to follow my friend's advice and try to ask for help here.

Maybe 1$ is not a big sum for you, but it can make a difference for me, especially if not just you but 10 other people will decide to help me as well. I don't want to gate my content behind the paywall, so right now I'm not sure what rewards I can offer you for your support except my eternal gratitude and access to archive with all my screenshots available for download. Without your help, I probably won't stop taking screenshots and keep trying to finish my other projects, but any support matters for me and will motivate to keep getting better in what I love to do.

Thank you for your help! Any support really matters for me and motivates to continue improving.

Archivist

This tier will give you link on the Google Drive with ALL my screenshots that I took so far. Makes it easier to pick those that will catch your interest and download them in a bulk.

I can't thank you enough for your generosity! Seriously, this is maximum I could ask anyone for what I'm doing right now. This will help me a lot and allow to focus more on creativity rather than how to survive until next month. Of course, you will get access to screenshots archive as well.

Goals
$6 of $30 per month
30$ is a roughly standard regional price for brand new AAA game in my region. Getting even one game for free because of the help of my patrons will be amazing and really motivational for me.
