Welcome to SdgGames!
Hello! My name is Matthew, and I have a slightly crazy vision for a games studio.
A lot of people out there focus on making games. Some (usually larger) studios focus on making money through games. I am designing a studio around the sole goal of making a difference through games.
I know, that sounds cheesy. But I’m doing my best to ensure that every single detail supports this vision. For that reason, SDG Games (from the Latin “Soli Deo Gloria”) might look a little different from your average Indie Games studio.
- First off, I want every game I make to say something important. There are a lot of negative stereotypes around gamers and the games industry, and I want to meet them head-on. I would rather create a game that changes a single person’s life than create a game that sells a million copies (although, I wouldn’t mind if I can do both!)
- Second, my games are always Free or PWYW (pay what you want) so everyone can afford to play. Any proceeds I do make will be directly reinvested into charities I believe in or reinvested into the gaming community. I don’t need the money; I already have a day job.
- Finally, my games are always Open Sourced, so anyone can contribute. I have a lot of ideas for games that I am, frankly, incapable of making by myself, and I hope that others will get excited and join the cause over time.
I started small and am taking on projects that are at my current skill level. Currently, I am producing Survive The Maze, my second game so far. You can play the latest release of my games below, or read my latest dev (b)log. I publish something new every two weeks, so keep an eye out!
I’m glad that you’re here! You can play my game below.
