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.
Atonement is my first complete game so far. As far as I am aware, this is the first theological exploration game to feature…
