My name is Colton Phillips. I am a game designer, and software engineering student at the University of Victoria. I helped found UVic GameDev which meets once a week to discuss important topics on game development and MAKE GAMES!
In order for me to make the Indie games that I want to make I need a Game Maker: Studio Master license. This costs $500. That's a lot of apples and chips. But it's actually really cool! You see Game Maker is a lot of fun to use, and it can target to almost any platform you can name! I can make web games. I can make mobile games! PC. Apple. HTML5. No prob!
With a copy of Game Maker Studio I'll be able to port the many Game Maker games UVic GameDev has collectively created to our website for everyone to play, and to include in the UVic GameDev Bundle!
I'll also be able to more effectively teach game development. Game Maker studio provides web playability providing a feedback loop for us gamedevs. Feedback loops are a BIG DEAL!
My goal is to reach $555 with your support. If I can come close to that goal, I'm sure I can afford to pay the remaining balance. I simply cannot afford to make games without your support. Any and all charity is greatly appreciated.
