What is it?
I am running a microgrant program and donating $100 every week1 to indie game developers to help them finish and release their games under a free license2. No binding agreement, no strings attached.
To apply, you just fill out an application form.
It is a small incentive for game developers to push their projects over the finish line. Even it is a small game, I want you to be proud of it. I want you to say joyfully: "Now, I have a game".
I hope you can expose your journey, not only the destination. We rarely talk about these things, but it is important. I believe in you. You can make something great.
There are no requirements for being a creator. All you need is to finish a project and share it with the world. I truly believe that every human felt a stirring desire to create, not because someone told you so, but because you have a spiritual connection with your idea. Build an interesting thing out of thin air.
Game development is hard, and if you are just starting out, you may not have the motivation or skills to finish a game. These games don't survive3, and we table them until better times. There is no right answer to this problem, but I will be generous and kind. I know that it is the right thing to do.
I want to give you something, pat you on the back, encourage you to pursue your dream.
Because you are special.
