About Jean-Pierre Damstra

WHO AM I?
My name is Jean-Pierre and I'm an indie video game development hobbyist from South Africa :D

WHAT I DO?
I've been creating hands-on practical video tutorials for game development using the wonderfully easy-to-use development software that is GameMaker for over 5 years now! I've managed to grow a steady, eager-to-learn audience of beginners and like-minded professionals into an active community of game developers and enthusiasts.

WHY I DO IT?
I'm passionate about what I do and equally passionate about sharing it with you. Constantly I'm bombarded with emails, comments and discussions from developers, enthusiasts and new-comers notifying me of their great successes, development and grand ideas all thanks to the videos I have on show. My heart fills with wonderment upon waking every morning to such an awesome crowd of individuals like you!

WHO IS THIS CHANNEL FOR?
My channel is for those not only wishing to build something fun, but also absolutely out-of-this-world fantastic! Concepts, theory, prototyping, basics, networking, you name it, I demonstrate it! It's all here for your brain to soak up like a eager sponge slurping a spilled drink at a crazy party while simultaneously demonstrating your mad skills on the dance floor.

HOW AM I FUNDED?
At present this channel is exclusively fueled by ad revenue, and donations from you through Patreon. This is all amazing stuff, thanks so much for your support!

WHY SUPPORT ME?
This channel has so far welcomed over 11,200 subscribers and 2,000,000 views from all corners of the world, each with the desire to create great content. With 150+ professionally crafted GameMaker tutorials for you to choose from, there's something for absolutely everyone and IT'S ALL ABSOLUTELY 100% FREE!!!

With your help, we can keep it this way forever.

Goals
$12 of $50 per month
Currently, I don't really have an upload schedule, but rather find moments of inspiration or free time to put up something great. Recording the videos is the easy bit, it's the editing, rendering and uploading that takes the most time. With this goal met, I'll set up an upload schedule so you guys know exactly what to expect and when.
