Changes Coming to $4 Reward Tier
 
So, the private streams haven't been getting any huge attention lately... not that they ever did, plus they're kinda losing their feel now that I do weekly public streams, so... I feel a new $4 reward tier is in order! :D


Also, Steam Greenlight's been replaced with Steam Direct, so devs can now directly publish their products through Steam without having to have their stuff voted on. All that happens when you submit a project is that it will go through a brief review by Valve to ensure the program works, doesn't contain malicious code, and isn't part of some trading card scheme or whatnot. (Seriously, that was a part of the reason why they decided to axe Greenlight was because of trading card abuse!)


Thus, while it's not gonna be official yet since I'm not ready for this change, the $4 tier is going to basically provide access to free copies of GMG games while they're under development and pre-alpha/alpha/beta access keys! :D


That's the plan, anyways. To make it happen, I first need to have my first game for GMG, Luminus (soon to be renamed), at a point where there's an actual game to play. Right now, it hasn't progressed to code yet, not even behind the scenes. I'm likely still about two months away from starting on code, given the extremely slow pace of development due to working on everything else, plus once I get to actual coding it'll likely be another month or two before there's a working product that can be played to any degree. :P


But in any case, I wanted to let everyone know what my plans were with that. Plenty more interesting things to come with GMG! ;)

Tier Benefits
Common Item Tier
$1 or more per month 48 patrons
You'll be mentioned in the credits of an upcoming regular ADG Episode for becoming a new Patron! Your random chance of showing up in the credits again will be normal and your name will show up in white.
Enchanted Name Tier
$2 or more per month 17 patrons
Same as the $1 reward tier, except your chance to show up in the credits at random is doubled and your name shows up in blue!
Rare Stream Tier
$4 or more per month 16 patrons
At least once a month you'll be given advance notice and access to a private livestream I'll be hosting! Unlike the weekly public streams, these private streams are much more interactive and include games that can be played by virtually anyone in the chat! Your random chance of showing up in the credits of future ADG episodes will be tripled and your name will show up in green!
Unique Digger Tier
$8 or more per month 28 patrons
You'll automatically be on the dig team for Shovelware Diggers and will be able to directly select which folders are unearthed on the show! The folder lists can be found on the Pixelmusement website. Your random chance of showing up in the credits of future ADG episodes will be quadrupled and your name will show up in gold!
Super Knowledge Tier
$12 or more per month 9 patrons
Once at this reward tier or higher, you're no longer eligible to send in guesses for the next episode of ADG... because you'll not only get to know what episode's coming up well before anyone else does, but you'll also be able to submit questions and comments about the games being covered to be directly responded to in each episode! This is capped at three total per episode from everyone eligible so make sure you make your comments or questions thoughtful!
Mega Script Tier
$16 or more per month 1 patron
Twice per year you'll be able to request and receive a signed copy of any script you want! You can also request an original print instead of a reprint, but those will be first-come first-serve.
Ultra Direct Link Tier
$32 or more per month 3 patrons
Twice per year you'll be able to request some one-on-one voice chat time with me! We can choose an appropriate day and time by eMail and go from there! ;)
