Classic REbirth opens on Patreon

WHY IS THIS HAPPENING?

At this point Classic REbirth has become quite a huge project of mine and it takes large amounts of time to develop and maintain. With my recent switch to a new job my chances of working on this, or even branching into other classic games (i.e. Resident Evil 3, Dino Crisis 1&2), become harder to fit in the schedule. Basically this project needs your help to keep up at a good pace (i.e. I spend less time on my job to pay bills, food, and whatnot), otherwise it’s likely going to slow down like a slug at some point due to no more spare time / little energies to work on it.

ARE YOU STILL GOING TO MAKE PUBLIC RELEASES?

Absolutely, don’t even think about me locking this behind a paycheck. The project’s free, it was from day one and always will be – you will never have to pay a dime to enjoy classic games on modern Windows. Patrons do get a few benefits if they pledge (like early access to test builds, and a nice archive with previous versions), but everyone else gets a slice of the polished builds, as usual.

IS THIS EVEN LEGAL?

Technically it is as legal as any improvement project out there, like the RE4HD texture packs (which is also backed via Patreon). All Classic REbirth patches don’t mess with DRM nor they include any piece of the original game. All they do is provide a quick and painless solution to make the games run with a simple drag & drop of one file that does all the hard work for the users.

IF I WERE TO BACK YOU UP, WOULD MY PRIVACY BE PRESERVED?

The short answer is: yes. The longer answer is: consider Patreon as a proxy server that shields you from spreading any personal information. You can make any of your pledges completely private, all external people would see is just a number, not even the backers nicknames.

SO WHERE CAN I BACK YOU UP?

This is where my Patreon page is for Classic REbirth: https://www.patreon.com/classicrebirth
Don’t feel obligated to pledge a penny if you don’t want to, but if you can help the project, it will be immensely appreciated.

Thank you in advance for your support!
