    The Warmerise Patreon page is live!

    For those who don't know what Patreon is:

    Patreon is a membership platform that provides tools to run a subscription service. It helps creators (developers in this case) earn monthly value by providing rewards and perks to their subscribers. 

    I wrote a post there called "Welcome To The Turning Point", anyone can read it.

    https://www.patreon.com/Warmerise

    Subscribers are most likely not charged right away, but on the first day of each month, therefore the benefits won't kick in until that time.

    I'm probably going to run the Patreon page as it is until the point where it's no longer needed (probably until a few months after the mobile version is released), then the tiers will be reduced to just the first 3 or will be modified to the lower values. You also don't have to keep the subscription for the whole duration if you don't want or unable to, you can cancel after one month, or after however many months you want.

    Who the hell is paying $500 a month for this game. I pay less than taxes per month than that.

    Well he needs money, and yes I agree. Maybe drop it down to 200. But you do you Max.

    He literally said you can subscribe for 1 month and then cancel your subscription, or if you’d like to subscribe until he removes patreon that’s your choice. I swear people find the negative in everything.

    I'll be supporting. The $500 is unrealistic, but the last paragraph of the OP clarifies that it's unlikely to stay that high. Not that it'll stop people from reacting first and reading second /shrug.

     

    Edit


    Right, so feedback:
    1) Pricing is a bit of a non-starter, and that's coming from a whale like myself. The floor of $10 is going to be too high, and its above average for most creators. Remember the audience of the game doesn't have a ton of disposable income. Yes a $1 membership feels like a drop in the bucket, but ask yourself how many ad views that correlates to. I'd suggest a tier structure of 1> 5> 15> 50> 150, keeping the rewards in each tier the same. Granted, I've never run my own Patreon, but these are pretty standard price tiers on the creators that I support.


    2) Patrons should be recognized on the site at least, and probably in-game too, especially at the $5 tiers and above. People like to see their little badge, it means a lot and makes the support feel more tangible. Separate badges of increasing coolness would be a good way to keep tier 4 more exclusive. You've got tier 1 getting access to private posts, but it's not clear what those are going to be. Early tests are tier 2 and devlogs are tier 3. It's a little unclear what tier 1 is actually getting, and a little bronze sticker on their profile would at least be something. Open to change on this one if you've got a vision for what content will be in tier 1.


    3) The branding is, frankly, uninspired. You've got a whole community of content to draw from! Take advantage of the unique personality the game has. What other shooter has the gravity gun? The plasma gun is iconic! Sky went from a quirky competitive server to an absolutely ubiquitous name known even by people who never got to see the original server. Get those boring marine rank icons out of here and leverage the game itself for your tiers. Hows this for your tiers: Soldier (UMP)> Grenadier (MiniG/RPG)> Marksman (L15A3/Rail)> Sky Trooper(Gravity/Revolver) > Legend(PlasmaGun). With each tier using an image of the weapon, or a player holding that weapon. Also that trailer should definitely get replaced, but I understand that's a WIP.

    I really hope this comes off as constructive feedback, rather than a list of complaints. I really do want to see the patreon (and the game ofc) succeed and grow.

    @chronospectrum Feedback noted. I didn't have time to really work on the Patreon page, but I will be making a few adjustments. For example every tier will receive profile badges, improved tier images, etc.
    @THEVETERAN The game will be released on Google Play, once it's established there, it'll get released on the App Store.

    @max, maybe you can some Daily Cash if you get any one of the subscriptions. Maybe 500 Daily Cash. This can bribe people into buying a subscription. But then it will kind of be a pay to win though, since in a week you will have 4k without doing anything (correct my math if I’m wrong). But Max do you have a date for when it will be released on App Store?

    @Spacetrooper That's a great idea, there are many things that can be added as rewards for each tier, but all of it has to be programmed and I'll only be able to start programming next week, hopefully (I'm still figuring out the housing situation).

    I found the Warmerise youtube channel. Maybe if you keep posting on that regularly it can bring more people to the game. Also, I would like to help by supporting the Pateron but I can't. Sorry.

    Lvl 6 suggestion

    | - 200$ - |

     

    As a Level 6 supporter, aside from all the benefits of the tiers above, you'll get a 15.000 in-game cash every 14 days. And access to the animated skins feature, and animated profile pictures. @Max

    Would that break the user capes?

    It would break both weapon skins and capes. It could worsen the performance by a lot, especially because the skins are removed when you die
