Hi everyone! I just want to let you all know that MMM Games are entering new era. Patreon type of support!
I have been making games since 2010 using Game Maker engine. Started from Game Maker 4, then worked in Game Maker 8, Game Maker Studio and currently using Game Maker Studio 2. You can find all of my games on my official page Mmmgamesindie.blogspot.com
Most of my games are focused on being dark themed, very atmospheric and usually they are sci-fi or fantasy themed. They are made for people who want to experience short, dark, mysterious stories with weird characters.
Why am I opening Patreon page? Since I started making games I had one goal in mind. To get this hobby to be my full-time job! But as time passed I realized that I like community and discussions that were based around my work and my games more than anything else. I kept trying to make this my permanent job and in the process, few games came out that had a price on them. As a result, many people who followed my work simply couldn't afford my games. I found myself in a weird cycle where I want to have the community growing, but can`t accomplish that if the games I make have a price tag. And I need money because...well...life. To make matters worse, my games are not made for a big audience, just for the people who like dark melancholy experiences. Ultimately I found Patreon which seems like exactly what I needed. All my games can be available to everyone, but there is still an option for people who want to support my work.
From now on all of my games are going to be free (NAME YOUR OWN PRICE) and after Beyond Retrieval (the game I am currently working on Mmmfree2dwindowsgames.blogspot.com ) I will start making smaller games but with much more dense atmosphere and set pieces. I will prioritize a memorable experience over the length of the game. These short games are going to be Browser types. Also, are going to be available on Window / Linux and Android (with no in-app purchases or adds of course). And if You are someone who likes White Wolf and wants to see a continuation of that story don't worry. White Wolf will be continued. :) But for now, I will focus all my energy on Beyond Retrieval. So next post is going to be about that game. :)
If You are someone who likes my work and who can afford to financially support my games (or just help me by spreading the word about my games) here is all You need to know about how You can do that Mmmfree2dwindowsgames.blogspot.com
Thank you in advance and see you all with more news :)
