Who am I?
I am Anubitek, aka LannFyre, and I am working on a video game for PC called "Sync".  I am a self-taught programmer, having started on a mod for Unreal Gold called RPGdev.  I made videos on my YouTube channel of progress of said mod, but I'm now making progress videos of my game.

What is Sync?

Sync is an in-progress game inspired by Xenogears, Metal Gear Solid, and Solatorobo: Red the Hunter that started as a mod for Unreal Gold.  I've moved my sprites and translated code into Godot, using GDScript.  So far I am at version 0.0.1 of the game, working on input and setting up a sprite rotation system.

What is the setting of Sync?

Sync is a game set in the near future: countries no longer follow unified governmental structures, but instead the land available is run by corporations.  These corporations have eroded the morals of "their employees", giving way to the degeneration of culture and social structure.  Biotech corporations have allowed anyone, who can afford the operations, cybernetic implants for cosmetic and practical bodily modification.  Some have begun a televised and mass-marketed blood sport known as "death match".  Many others specialize in work such as contracted corporate espionage.  The world has become a very dangerous and information-driven place.

As a result, corporations must hire private security firms and private military contractors to protect their assets from other corporations as well as the average "employee".  Some of these groups have access to the same biotechnological manipulation facilities to create beings for purposes such as security: they are "LANN" (learned activity navigation node) units.  One has been made for a confidential purpose and must be recovered.  You take the role of a LANN unit and must fulfill your mission.  Don't run away, you only have 5 years to live.

Why make a Patreon?
I would like to purchase a better machine to work on this game, I'm currently working off of a Dell Inspiron 5558 with an onboard graphics card.  While the game wont be graphically intensive, I would like to be able to test later builds of the game without lagging or crashing.  At some point, I'd like to do progress streams as well over either YouTube or Twitch.

What will the money pay for?
A better machine to program and build assets on, any programs that will be needed for 3D modeling and texturing, a decent microphone that isn't a Rockband 2 microphone, paper, potentially an artist plus paying my musicians, and to support my house with a faster internet connection for if/when streaming can happen.

Will you actually make this or am I wasting my money and time?
The game is being built whether I am making money or not.  So far it is a zero-gain venture, money would just assist in making this project easier financially.
