About Shaun Spalding

Who am I?

I'm Shaun Spalding, I'm an ex-Ubisoft game designer and independent game developer. I make tutorial videos, livestreams, tools and assets for GameMaker Studio 1 & 2 and game development in general. I also make video games!

Why Patreon?

Making high quality tutorial videos and content for developers takes a long time and a lot of effort. I really don't want to charge for tutorials, sell books or create courses behind a paywall. I want to create stuff that everyone can use.

I used to support my YouTube work with adverts and freelance work. The former isn't worth a lot of money, not enough to support the time I spend on this work. And the latter consumes time I would rather spend creating better public content more frequently.

Adverts and the "normal" paths to success on YouTube demand a style of content that favors retention, clicks and mass market appeal rather than quality and depth. I would rather be funded solely by great people that care about my work. Those are the people who should influence it, not advertisers or YouTube's algorithm.

So if you like my work, if you find it helpful, or even if you think that my stuff could help, encourage and teach others who want to get into games development, then please consider becoming a patron of my work! Patrons get access to all sorts of cool stuff including source code, early release videos and so on. But even though I offer these benefits I'm clear about wanting to keep my core educational content free and available to everyone.

Thank you to each and every one of my patrons for believing in the work that I do and keeping it going and growing and improving these last few years. Without them, most of my tutorials and work in the last few years simply would not exist.
