We all make sacrifices for the things we love. For me, it's the unstable life of a game developer. For you, it's parting with some of your hard-earned cash for a humble thank-you message.

Optionally, I'll give you a shout-out on social media, declaring my gratitude for your patronage. We can also negotiate the contents of the shout out if there's something you'd like to promote. My largest following is on Twitter, @sbseltzer.

It means a lot to me so my gratitude comes from the heart. <3

Path to Great Game Designs

Much of my gaming these days is research. I share some of these design evaluations publicly but not all of them see the light of day. This tier grants you early access to my published critiques, and occasionally private access to others.

Naturally, you also get everything from lower tiers. <3

Get leveled up!
60 minutes of my time every month for mentorship of your choice! We'll really get to know each other. Very limited supply of these. You'll also get the benefits of all lower tiers.

I can help with career development (especially in games/software), marketing, moral support, resume reviews, code reviews, help with homework, and much more!
I have 15+ years of development experience with multiple specializations over that time span. I've worked in games, high-performance software, embedded software, cross-platform engines, and more.

About Sam

Hi I'm Sam. I enjoy making games, programming, writing, streaming, and teaching. Perhaps I could do all of those at once?

I'd be honored to have you accompany me on this journey to financial sustainability. Creative careers are difficult and making them work long term is a pipe dream for many. I hope you feel what I'm creating is worthwhile so I have the opportunity to continue doing it. <3

At this time my overall goal is to become financially sustainable through a combination of content creation (i.e. writing, code tidbits, small games, some streaming, maybe even videos) and doing freelance work supporting indie projects I believe in (which don't tend to pay well, but I love working with indies). Some day I'd like to tackle more ambitious projects of my own but to do that I need a solid foundation of funding so I can pay others a fair wage to help me.
