Hi! Lucas with XGASOFT, here. Thanks for stopping by XGASOFT's Patreon page! Please enjoy your stay.
In 2012 I began writing and creating content through ThinkBoxly, my own personal website-turned-devblog. Through these early creative encounters I discovered a hidden love for storytelling that has since grown into a passion for so much more.
XGASOFT isn't about creating merely entertaining experiences. It is my belief that stories have the potential to change us, and as an interactive medium, videogames of all genres are a natural fit for these kinds of stories.
Since 2015, it has also been my goal to create a unified platform for developing interactive stories quickly and with a high bar for presentation quality. The first of these efforts is VNgen, a visual novel engine that anyone can use.
What's in the name?
"XGA" stands for "International Game Arts". This means both cross-cultural content and collaboration with other developers all around the world. Each project has its own demands, and I'm excited to work with other talented individuals to bring them to life!
Why use Patreon?
Producing content with small teams takes time, and time is money. Like living from paycheck to paycheck, developers live from release to release—and in this case, there's no guarantee when the next release will come until it's already late into development. Patreon fills that gap and allows creators to focus on their craft full-time and, with enough funding, make it even better.
As Project Lead, it is my desire to see XGASOFT grow in size and ambition. Every dollar contributed to XGASOFT through Patreon will help ensure timely delivery of the best products possible with the resources we have.
What's in it for me?
As XGASOFT produces two different categories of products, what you get for your support depends on you:
- If you're a developer, supporting XGASOFT on Patreon will grant you access to a variety of innovative development tools at the lowest prices anywhere--or even free, depending on the tier you pledge! Patreon backers will also be given priority in technical support and feature requests when possible, as well as access to exclusive developer channels on the official XGASOFT Discord server.
- If you're a gamer, supporting XGASOFT on Patreon will score you the same discounts available to developers or even permanent game keys, depending on the tier you pledge! All tiers will also receive in-game credit and other game-related bonuses (TBD on a case-by-case basis). The first of these games is Yugure no Kagami: The Mirror of Dusk, an urban fantasy visual novel, with further games and IPs planned for the future.
How do I make sure the type of rewards I receive is right for me?
Easy: no matter who you are, you get both! Of course, each tier has its own associated rewards. Choose the one that interests you!
In either case, you'll also get access to an exclusive Patreon feed featuring behind-the-scenes looks at XGASOFT's work as it develops and 24/7 Discord chat as a direct line of communication with myself and other patrons! This includes rewards too—if there's something you want to see added to the list, talk to me about it! I'd love to hear your thoughts.
