Today, we are announcing the launch of the Podcrash+ Patreon, after an overwhelming amount of support towards the idea of a Patreon going forward. This post is designed to explain what becoming a Patron means, what it offers, what it allows us to do going forward.
When we were looking at the options for supporting the cost of development for Podcrash+ we released three options to the community.
- A premium version of the mod
- Continue as is with no outside funding
Up until today, Podcrash+ has been fully funded by Podcrash, however, there is a limit to how much we can do by ourselves, Podcrash+ has an awesome and evergrowing community, and we want to bring more features and support more games, but we can only do that with your help. Since the beginning, the developers have been working voluntarily on the mod, and for them to continue working at the rate that everyone here wants to see, they deserve to be paid. So we started talking about a premium version of Podcrash+, where some features would be locked off behind a paywall, but let’s be honest that idea sucks. No player should suffer because of a premium version, so the idea of Patreon came up.
With Patreon we will be able to offer the same features to everyone, no premium version, no paywall, just one awesome version of Podcrash+ where those that wanted to can support the development, and those that can’t or don’t want to, don’t have to.
What Benefits will being a Patron bring?
On launch our Patreon has a few tiers that you can pick from
Awesome – $1 or more per month
Legend – $10 or more per month
Qata – $20 or more per month
Qata’s Idol – $35 or more per month
You can see the specific details about each on the Patreon page, but aside from that, Patrons of all level will have some bonus’s that are not yet listed on Patreon, as we develop new features to the Mod and as we add more features to https://podcrash.plus and Podcrash Competitive.
From everyone at Podcrash+ this is a new start for the mod, we are excited for the future of Podcrash+ and the new features we plan to add. If you want to keep track of what we are working on then you can see our development trello
