Who am I?
I'm BARCH, an Australian Game developer. I love making 1990s inspired retro music, I love building tools to make game making better, and over the years I've struggled making games with what is out there in today's market of software. Since 2015 I've been working out optimal ways for speeding up the pace of making worlds.
The Unfolding Engine : Paint A Game is designed to help make game designers and gamers have the best enjoyable experience for building games and modding them. Building toolkits around design patterns that are for the modern age. Games as we believe should be edited while playing them, the compiler is a barrier towards good games players and makers deserve to place something into the world and see the results like using a pencil on paper. Our goal is to build a community of people who help and work on eachothers works, and share assets with one another to help them make your dream game possible.How does Patreon come into this?
Its a service that allows you to support creators with a monthly subscription. The reason we are using it is a way of stabilizing the development so that it can be constantly updated instead of speraticily. As well as this, its to delay other people altering the designs on the game such as publishers / corporations who may not understand the vision of the engine.Why help?
Working on the engine full time is very expensive and time intensive. As the project gets more popular the demands on it and costs become more obvious. The more money that is put into the project the more hours I can put into it long term as well as getting more people involved to help out.Reward Tiers :$8.99
Asset Packs : Includes a monthly pack of a variety of various Sprites / Music / Items which users vote on to be added into the game. The asset packs are high quality works of pieces that can be placed into the game world. Having access to these packs is accessed when you sign up to it. Which leads to.
Discord Roles: in which you can choose what assets you want each month. People in this role get special channels to which to communicate to me.
