Brainstorming New Patreon Plans, Rewards, & Goals

Yotes Games

I'm brainstorming some new plans for making the Yotes Games Patreon a much bigger deal. My general idea is that I need to put more effort into my YouTube channel due to the level of engagement that gets out of people.

But I'd like to hear some feedback from you! It'd be super great to hear someone else's take on where I should take this crazy train next. Or hear exactly why you personally wouldn't donate to my Patreon but would to another. What rewards would you like to see? Should the project be more polished? I wanna know how to get strangers completely HYPED about this game!
 

Trying to emulate the success of ALBDifferent, Exiled, & YandereDev here, and a solid YouTube effort is the key ingredient I'm neglecting. Even just read an article today about how Fighting is Magic might not've exploded if that demonstration trailer didn't get shared left and right earning 900,000 views. Nerds like me read development blogs, but everybody watches videos. I outta make some videos.

Check out the huge list of ideas about how I'ma to do just that on the official development blog!

      Hi everyone, I release my new game Head Stall Soccer, your goal is to keep the soccer ball over your head without letting it fall.
      I'm relatively new in gamedev so feedback and suggestion are appreciated.

      Hey,
      I'm currently starting next iteration on my engine project and have some points I'm completely fine with and some other points and/or code parts that need refactoring so this is a refactoring step before starting to add new features. As I want my code to be modular to have features optional installed for certain projects while others have to stay out of sight, I designed a framework that starting from a core component or module, spreads features to several project files that are merged together to a single project solution (in Visual Studio) by our tooling.
      This works great for some parts of the code, naming the Crypto or Input module for example but other parts seem to be at the wrong place and need to be moved. Some features are in the core component that may belong into an own module while I feel uncomfortable splitting those parts and determine what stays in core and what should get it's own module. An example is Math stuff. When using the framework to write a game (engine), I need access to algebra like Vector, Quaternion and Matrix objects but when writing some kind of match-making server, I wouldn't need it so put it into an own module with own directory, build script and package description or just stay in core and take the size and ammount of files as a treat in this case?
      What about naimng? When cleaning the folder structure I want to collect some files together that stay seperated currently. This files are foir example basic type definitions, utility macros and parts of my Reflection/RTTI/Meta system (which is intended to get ipartially t's own module as well because I just need it for editor code currently but supports conditional building to some kind of C# like attributes also).
      I already looked at several projects and they seem to don't care that much about that but growing the code means also grow breaking changes when refactoring in the future. So what are your suggestions/ oppinions to this topic? Do I overcomplicate things and overengeneer modularity or could it even be more modular? Where is the line between usefull and chaotic?
      Thanks in advance!

      Making games is hard. You need all kinds of technical and creative skills, you need a big team, a budget...
      But making your first game can be even more difficult if you have no previous experience in game development and your team is only two people.
      But it didn't stop us. We quit our jobs and started this indie game journey full of mistakes and pitfalls.
      Why? What encouraged us to make this stupid move?
      Inspired by Extra Credits, Hellblade Dev Diaries, and ThinMatrix we decided to start a weekly behind the scenes show. There we'll be showing bits of our production process. The whole project is a huge and risky experiment for us and we would love to hear your support and recommendations.
      We are opened to all sorts of feedback. Even if you consider something is of a low quality in our video, please let us know it as is. We would love to learn from the community and improve.
      Thank you.

      This is a game concept i made for the gmtk game jam over the weekend, check it out here: https://piranha305.itch.io/kingdom-battle, is this a game idea i should keep pursuing, right now in it's current version it's pretty basic, but it could be expanded on with more unit types and a multiplayer system, but i don't know if i should invest the effort? also right now the art it's using if from kenny.nl assets, but i'm im gonna roll with the idea, i'll probably get the art remade.
