Hello! This Patreon campaign is to raise funds to hire coders and programmers needed to create a potentially revolutionary game engine for games that make use of 2D animation, sprites, etc. We would also like to use this campaign to hire artists to create artwork for use in this project. This is planned for use in games that makes use of 2D animation. The engine, tentatively titled the "Frost Engine", will make making 2D animation in games easier to create, but at the same time, open doors to new possibilities with 2D animation once thought impossible: creating genuine 2D art with the depth and fluidity of a 3D CG model. I call such 2D imagery as 2D Models.

How this will work, there are planned two possibilities: one, a 3D model can be created and once recognized by the FROST ENGINE, will be recreated in layers of 2D art that engine automatically creates that are then put together. This 2D model will retain all the depths and fluidity it had as a 3D model, but is now a pure 2D animated artwork, that can then be edited to your artistic liking. Alternatively, you can create layers of 2D art, then upload them, and then have the engine recognize the layers. When done this way, the engine puts the layers together and adds depth to them by seamlessly drawing in additional layers, which can all, again, be edited to your liking.

Now, this is all a very difficult task, I know. And frankly, all I have to give is my word that such a concept is being worked. However, like any other person, I dream of innovation that will amaze and inspire people. I believe that such a game engine can bring such feelings in a time and age of gaming I feel is being rekindled with a new fiery passion for innovation. And by asking for your donation, dear Patreons, I am also asking you to be a part of what I think is a very fun and creative new challenge for the industry. Thank you.

If you have any iquiries about us and/or our project, or wish to contact us to apply for a position as a coder, programmer, or artist, please contact us at [email protected]
