Ah simple

 

1: They don’t 

2: Amethyst has a Patreon which mainly supports her development on making these game smoothly and on time... oh who am I kidding, we’re never gonna get to see ep19 release date anytime soon.

 

I believe originally before, she intended it to just be a place where if you wanna help her irl struggles living.

3: The will to live and create is a powerful ability some consider to be unnatural

Oh ok. Is Amethyst making the game alone?

Theres a group that works with her for it, Originally I think it was just her

Also Cass helps with it too now, I think Jan has helped some and I know Suzurain [The insurgance/Zeta/Omnicron] helps generally with coding for essentials]

 

Money wise, Its the Patreon that helps Pay for the website's uptime and helps Ame do some living expenses so she can work more on the games creation and figuring out how to delete Bedew from the game, that pesky plant boi

There seems to be a misunderstanding. Ame's basement has current vacancy and in order to fill that vacancy of immobile bodies, some of us work on the game. This exchange of services is a mutual benefit to all Rebornians.

the list of devs can be found in the staff directory. there are a number of ex-devs as well, though i don't think that suzerain has helped us with stuff

If Suze helped with anything we'd have to be going way, way back to Zeta/Omnicrom days which I know Ame has mentioned him before but any contributions would have been pretty small. This is like 6 or so years ago so I'm not even sure if anyone remembers. Hell, I barely even recall that stuff. I mostly recall the two being compared day in and out since they were really the only fan-games (not hacks) out at the time.

 

There's been a ton of people who have helped contribute to Reborn it'd take me a minute to remember some of them. A lot of them were over small things such as shiny sprites.

THERE'S A CREDITS SECTION YOU FOOLS.

 

Also for legal reasons Ame has never accepted money to work on this game. Ever. In. Any. Form. Reborn is the most non profitable pokemon game in history. pls dont kill it before E19 nintendo.

 

Nah but like this is the answer, also agreed fuck budew.

 

I think Ame does like 50% and the main work (Story, most of the development) while everyone chips in with their free time and bug tessting and supplementary stuff. Not to discredit anyone in the credits I'm just spitballing because I assume they do a lot of stuff (I remember like 50 people helped out for the gen 7 sprites) but it's most of the supplementary materials like sprites, animations and ya know making sure the game doesn't crash when you catch a meowth. Also jan is in the credits for what they did I do not know but I assume they did spritework. 

 

 

Straight from the readme file in Ep. 18.2

Fangame development especially something like Pokemon relies a lot on good will and cooperation it seems. That's pretty sweet.
