About Level Design Lobby
The Level Design Lobby's goal is to break down the game/level design process of fantastic games, while explaining to all the amazing Game Design Guru's why these choices may have been made and what we can all learn/take away from these examples. While also bringing in top industry talent to discuss their views on certain video games, as well as tips on how to break into the industry. The ultimate goal is to bring a tight community together to help us all, as devs and game lovers grow.
I'm Max Pears the host/creator of the Level Design Lobby Podcast, I have been a professional level designer for over 5 years, working on a range of games from Mobile, AR, to the big triple A titles. My career has taken me to some of the biggest studios around the world from Ubisoft to CD PROJEKT RED (my opinions do not represent the companies, nor are any secrets of the studios discussed here).
My podcast is aimed at anyone who has a burning love for video games. Whether you are a player who wants a to know more on how some of your favourite games were made, to future designers who wish to know how to stand out, or for industry vets who are just wanting to expand their own knowledge.
Patreon is an incredible service where you the supporter send payments directly to the creator in order to help support them, make the content that you love.
To me, Patreon is better for the relationship between the creator (me) and the viewer (you) as there will be no outside influence to get the video to play a certain way. Instead, the podcast will be focused on delivering the best possible content for you.
All Patreons who pledge will have my eternal thanks, but wait there are more collectables below:
I only want to keep these pledge to three easy payable categories so that it is affordable for you no matter your income.

You will pay the amount you've selected once a month, yet you can choose when to stop at any time. I release 3 episodes a month and have made it my goal to make sure I stick to this. If however due to certain circumstances I do not release any episodes in a month I will not charge.
The money you donate will be spent on improving the show as well as maintenance costs. My intention is to use the money to purchase better equipment like a new/multiples mics to deliver a better interview experience, than one mic shared between x of us. It will also be used on better software for editing to give those who watch on my youtube channel a far better experience than the one and who knows maybe even an editor one day. Maintenance costs will be covered with as well as hosting, hard drive space, and research.
Making sure that this money you the viewer have entrusted to me goes to delivering a better experience for all of you, taking it to (pardon the pun) the Next Level.
