Main Street now has a Patreon!
Making a Patreon is something River and I have discussed at multiple points during our Main Street development process, and now that we have ironed out tons of bugs and gotten the basic skeleton of our game functioning properly we felt that it was time to take the leap.
The main reason that pushed us to make a Patreon is the fact that we would like to put more money toward Main Street's development. We believe that Main Street is a fun and addictive game, and are passionate that if we spread the word about the game and allow people to try it out they will love it just as much as we do. Earning money from Patreon would go a long way in helping to advertise Main Street to a larger audience and sustain our current business costs.
With that said, with the creation of our new Patreon there will be a few changes:
We will be doing fewer blog posts here on RFG and moving most of our updates (and earlier updates) to the Patreon as a thank you and sneak peak to our donors.
Our official Discord servers will have new roles and locked Patron only channels.
We will be adding an in-game plaque with Patron names when in the future!
Occasionally, there will be free posts available on our Patreon even for non-Patrons!
The days of having completely private alpha tests are over! I will explain more about this change in a blog post soon!
