I write software. This is my full-time work, and I have no other job. Examples of projects that I have created include sixteen video games---like Passage, Between, and Sleep Is Death---and MUTE, which has been downloaded over one million times.|
I release all of the source code that I write as free software (free as in "freedom") into the public domain so that others can learn from my work and make use of my source code in their own projects. I also release all of my software in compiled binary form (in other words, "ready-to-run") into the public domain, with no restrictions on use or redistribution. You can read more of my thoughts on free distribution
My spouse, three children, and I live a very simple, inexpensive lifestyle, which you can read more about here. We don't need much to survive, and with your help, I can continue making and releasing software indefinitely.
If you would like to support me and my work on an ongoing basis, and you can afford a dollar per month in your budget, you should consider subscribing. I have set the default subscription rate to $1.34. After PayPal's fees ($0.30 + 2.9%), that rate gives $1 to me per month. Feel free to set your own rate, either lower or higher, below (though be aware that any donation less than $0.30 is swallowed completely by the PayPal fee).
