Patreon FAQ & General Mateusz FAQ

Post by admin »

Greeting, fellow Pastellanders!

This thread is about anything Patreon, primarily for Mateusz Skutnik's artistic ambitions!

Image

As many of you are aware, Patreon is a niffy unlimited by-the-month/project milestone fundraising option; an alternative to time-limit massive campaign of Kickstarter. This is a long time coming after years of relying mostly on Flash Games marketplace to finance his projects. With the Flash Games marketplace being on a serious decline due to immense popularity of Mobile Apps marketplace, Mateusz Skutnik "kickstarted" his Patreon effort earlier this year to support his projects of various sorts in coming future.

If you wish to contribute to his artistic ambitions and snag cool rewards... Just let him take your money :mrgreen:

Here are the primers:

Official FAQ about Mateusz Skutnik's work

Post by admin2 »

This is a copy of the Frequently Asked Questions list on Mateusz Skutnik's official Discord channel.



Last updated: 30-4-2020 11:35 GMT
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Are Covert Front and Submachine in the same universe?
A: No. Those are separate world written by different authors, there fore not compatible.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: What software do you use to create your games?
A: Game Maker Studio 2.0
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: What will happen to old flash games once flash is discontinued by Adobe?
A: Old Submachine and Daymare Town games will be ported to Game Maker and released on Steam. As for other games - they will most likely end up on itch.io in .exe form for PC only, as Apple doesn't want old unauthorized apps on Mac OS.

In 2020 adobe stops supporting flash player. That means that even online content (as in: flash games portals) will probably continue working just fine, adobe just washes their hands and doesn't want to maintain it any longer. I'm pretty sure there are people who will keep flash games alive and well. I think there's already some initiative to support flash after 2020.
moreover, I think if you download a flashplayer installer to your disc, you'll be able to install it later on and play swf files.
it's just that adobe stops supporting.
There's a discord server all about saving flash games in the future:

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q: Have you thought about revamping DMT when it gets on Steam?
A: I have. I will probably add some locations, puzzles, move around inventory items and make some changes to puzzles themselves (making them more accessible).

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q: Will Covert Front, the Fog Fall or Space Oddity continue?
A: No. These games were co-created with my colleagues who long since have dropped game development.
