I so do not have time to talk about this in any depth right now but I think success on #Patreon has way more to do with what you do outside of Patreon than how you configure your rewards.

The steps go:
1) do the work
2) give people a reason to support you in it
3) ensure they know you exist
4) make it easy for them to give you money

Patreon is step 4).

For me step 2) involves putting my work online for free, and step 3) is mostly demo recordings, which I have been v v lax about recently.

Hi! I hope Game Making Social is a cosey, friendly place to talk and share stuff about amateur videogame making and everything surrounding that. It's kinda an offshoot of Game Making Tools, which is a wiki(+) for a similar audience.

Game makers, game writers, game players most welcome! Unless you're a jerk!!

I also try to maintain a list of not-jerk game-making communities on the wiki, which you might find interesting.

Please read the rules before signing-up :)

Oi there's also a forum at forums.gamemaking.social.

PS: We have Animal Crossing, LSD, and Klik & Play emoji :3
