Hi! I'm Max, and I'm the founder of Welcome to Monday.

I make 2D indie games with a framework I built in Monogame. I create a lot of my own assets, but I also buy from and credit other creators. You'll see those credits here, on Twitter, the game's itch.io pages, as well as in-game. 

Professionally, I'm a software developer for an educational software company in Northern California. I'm halfway through a Bachelor's program for Software Development because I wanted the formal education to back up my knowledge. 

All of my social media is maintained by my wife, Izzy.

Current Work-In-Progress:
Beacon, a Metroidvania game about a maintenance robot on a remote space outpost on a planetoid hundreds of lightyears from Earth.


Previous Games: 
Ouroboros, a snake-inspired game where you control a lunar snake which must steal a lantern from the tail of the last Champion, and in doing so will become the Champion to defeat come next festival.


Why should you become a patron of Welcome to Monday?
All of my builds will always be free until they're finished, and then the prices will always be low. Becoming a patron will help me maintain these low prices and keep free builds viable.

Making games is my passion, and I know many other indie developers would say the same. I'm a huge advocate for independent creators, and with more patrons I can fund more creators. I can buy more content from other creators, I can reach a bigger audience to help boost other creators, and I can support more creators out of my own pocket through Patreon, independent stores, and other social media. 

On top of helping me to support independent creators, you can also receive:
  • Access to patron-only posts such as early updates, screenshots, and other media and information regarding my current and future projects.
  • The invite link to the Welcome to Monday Discord server.
  • Every game I release for free depending on your tier.
  • A mention in the credits of any game I finish while you're a patron.
  • More to come as I build a following and finish more games!

Where does your money go? 
Two places.
  • First, it allows me to dedicate more time to developing games and eventually making game development my 9-5. 
  • Second, I reinvest it back into other creators. In the interest of transparency, I'll record every dollar spent on other creators.
