Richard Lems is creating Games & *A SECRET*

Hey there, my name is Richard, on the internets i go by Rilem.
I live in a small country below sea level, that’s why it’s called the Netherlands! ;D

I’m a game artist by trade, and on my game development adventures I’ve picked up a rather peculiar set of hobbies, such as audio design, storytelling, programming, and ux design.

All of these facets can be combined into something magical, something that evokes the sense of adventure in all of our hearts. A game.

I love making games, it’s what I do




I’ve come to an utterly inescapable conclusion: I must become an independent game developer.

For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted to make games. Through hard work and a bit of luck, I managed to have the privilege to work in the game industry for about 7 years professionally.

The times when I was most happy though, were the times spent working on games outside of the professional context. Weekend gamejams and hobby projects, these are the games I feel most proud of. It gives me no greater joy to see that these games are making people happy.

With your help I’m going to make it happen. I promise you my games will inflame your hearts, take you on epic adventures and surprise you in ways that will put a big smile on your face! :D

Currently I'm working on Mighty Goose, an epic run & gun style arcade shooter!





As you join me on my journey, I’ll share with you all my learnings and experiences. I keep detailed logs of what I do, with progress gifs and images. Also I’m including bonus rewards depending on what tier you pledge at. Including:

  • Behind the scenes: A look at the thought & design process, w.i.p. Gifs, sketches etc.
  • Your name in the credits: Thanks to you <3
  • Source files: Certain techniques and tricks for game engines (like my gameboy template for construct)
  • Tools / Plugins: Sometimes I write tools to complement my workflow, you’ll get access to those.
  • Access to prototypes & design documents: Insight into design process, play with prototype games.
  • w.i.p game builds: Play alpha builds, give feedback etc
  • Free copy of game: When I release a game under my own name, you’ll get a free copy!

I hope you'll join me on my adventures. We're only just getting started!
