Hi, I'm roBurky. I make stuff.
I tell stories about games, like the tale of my homeless sims Alice and Kev.
I make videogames, like the arcade experience Three Body Problem.
And since the beginning of 2017, I’ve been making mods for The Sims 4.

What I'm doing now

I do part-time work caring for children and young people with disabilities, but my weekdays are spent split between freelance work and the creation of mods for The Sims 4. It's my hope I can keep this balance between these different types of work that I enjoy, and that as this patreon grows I can increase the time I spend on making things for patrons.

What makes The Sims exciting for me is the collaborative way you work with the game to create a story. You come with an idea for who your sim is, and what kind of life they're going to have, and then the game pushes back with some ideas of its own, and what comes out can be surprising and affecting.
The mods you see me make will generally be intended to help along this kind of play. Although there might also be some other kinds of things from time to time.

You should see a new mod or a feature update from me at least once a month. When a new game patch is released, you should also expect a patreon post from me soon after to let you know what mods, if any, require an update.

Other stuff I do

I am perhaps still best known for telling stories about games I play, and this patreon will be my home for these kinds of writings going forward. Finding the kind of game that will inspire this type of thing isn't easy, so it's not something I can commit to on a schedule, but when it happens, my patrons will be the first to read it.

Becoming a patron

When you pledge to this patreon, you're giving me a little bit of money every month to help keep me alive, sheltered, fed, and making things. You're thanking me for the things I've made that you have enjoyed, and supporting me for the things I will make in the future.

When you become a patron, no matter the amount you pledge, you will get email alerts whenever I release an update or something new, and in your patron welcome message you will find a link to a download key for my little arcade game Three Body Problem as thanks for your support.

When you pledge at the $3 tier or above, you can also join my community of testers. You will get access to patron-only posts that will contain links to preview builds of mods and games that I make, some of them practically finished and just waiting for me to write up the formal descriptions, some of them works-in-progress that I would love it if you could give me feedback on.

When you pledge to one of the higher tiers, you... will be so generous I don't yet know what I can do in return. I'll think of something, but in the meantime, you will just be awesome.


Thank you

Whether you're able to pledge or not, thank you so much for just reading this page and considering it.

You will have my heartfelt gratitude and love.

Seriously, the knowledge that someone is getting enough out of the things I do to want to give thanks in this way is worth a lot more than the money.


But you will ALSO get:

- an email alert whenever something I've made gets released or updated 

- a download key for my game Three Body Problem

Second Tier
$3 or more per month 68 patrons
You will have my heartfelt gratitude and love.

But you will ALSO get:

I have nothing more to give you. Except my heartfelt gratitude and love.

And also everything from the previous tiers.
Goals
$273 of $300 per month
This would be just enough to keep me going on months where I have no other freelance work. That kind of stability would make a big difference in my life.
