Become a sponsor to Matthias

My name is Matthias,
I am a software developer originally from Bavaria, and I have a faible for open software.
Since 2014, I have co-developed the open source 2D Java game engine LITIENGINE together with my brother @steffen-wilke!
Professionally and academically, I have extensive knowledge of Python and C#, while mostly using Java privately to create video games, some of which are also open source projects made with LITIENGINE.


With 5000$/month, I can work full-time on LITIENGINE and thus contribute to the world of Java videogames.
