Good day ladies and gentlemen, my name is Tadas and I make video games. I usually lean towards creating unusual, experimental and/or original game ideas, weather it's implemented in game design, mechanics or visuals. I'm also a man of a few words... so I guess this is the end of my introduction.
It's a common misconception that making video games for a living is a dream job, and sure there are a lot of creative benefits, but it also includes 16-hours a day/7 days a week work schedule, a hermit lifestyle, sweat, blood and tears; lots and lots of tears. It's a life of a dirt.
"I'm better than dirt. Well...most kinds of dirt. I mean not that fancy store bought dirt. That stuffs loaded with nutrients. I...I can't compete with that stuff."
Most of my early games, from way back when I was like 10-12, are long gone (let me reveal you a little secret..... those games were not good). Then, out of nowhere, I just stopped making them for a decade or so. Not too long ago I got back to my old hobby, gain valuable experience and a new perspective on game design.
Here is my most recent game called Life in the Static. It's a platformer where you can stop time.
All joking aside, making games was a passion of mine ever since i was a kid, the past few years were really rough with a lot of failure and financial stress, but I still enjoy making games and would like to keep doing it in the future. Sure there are alternatives, like making a commercial game and selling it on Steam, but that requires a lot of time and investment and even then nobody is certain they'll make any money off of it. It also puts you as a designer in a certain creative boundaries. Patreon, on the other hand, is a perfect place to get your wildest ideas funded by the people who enjoys it as well.
Every dollar counts so I'm grateful from the bottom of my heart to anyone who supports my work.

I could finally get a haircut every month... well, maybe not a full head haircut... maybe I would just get a haircut on one side of my head and do the other one by myself in front of the mirror.
