Do you love horror? I sure do. I am a self-proclaimed horror enthusiast who loves to delve into all the things that go bump in the night. I love horror so much, I make my own little horror games, stream & play horror games constantly (with a goal to play and share as many as I can in my lifetime), analyze them, and poke fun of them constantly in my spare time. You can call it my life passion. It's something I've done for a long time, and something I would love to continue doing, and dedicate my life too.

You can find a list of games I've released on Steam here.
Check out my YouTube channel.
I stream on Hitbox pretty regularly.

Top-Line: My goal on Patreon is to help fund my ability to focus on creating my little horror games and release them a lot quicker than I could otherwise; to stream, edit, & upload a regular schedule of YouTube Let's Plays on my channel, and to help expand to have more time to also make more in-depth videos, such as horror analysis pieces and silly comedic skits.

I've been creating content on the internet since 2004. Once upon a time, I did silly little improv fan dub parodies of various old video games under the name of BlackarmsStudios; a channel that lasted until 2007, and even became one of YouTube's 100 top subscribed channels at the time, that ultimately met its fate to copyright strikes. Around 2008 I started making playthrough videos of video games on a group channel (which would later become known as Let's Plays), and in 2010, I finally made my own channel for it, AestheticGamer, which I have been running ever since.

Along with this, since I was 10 years old, I started making little games in my spare time. For years, I didn't release any of them. Until one day in 2012, the popular Ludum Dare game creation jam had started going, and I made and submitted a small game there. I started to enter more jams, then experimented by expanding one of my jam games, and releasing it on Steam. I doodled up the sprites, made the music for it, and released it to a surprisingly solid response. I then dedicated time to improve myself, and to make these little horror games that I hoped others would enjoy.

I've gotten to a point in my life where I need to decide how to move forward to keep myself financially afloat. With increased financial responsibilities, how things are going currently isn't a steady way to be able to support myself. And so, I either need to make it a steady platform to support myself with, or I'm going to have much less time to work on it as I focus on earning a living elsewhere, and keep it to something I do when I have the time to do it.

---

Bottom-Line: I would like to use Patreon to help me do this full-time, and be able to keep a consistent schedule of streams & videos coming out, maybe focus on higher-quality and more edited videos outside of let's plays (such as analysis of the horror medium, and silly game comedy skits), and to have time to work on and release my games more frequently.

I appreciate anyone who takes the time to even just try the games and videos I put out, and took a moment to look over the page. And of course, I am incredibly grateful for anyone who decides to donate to this Patreon to help support me to continue making these things for the masses. I hope to keep this a bit brief and not go long-winded as I usually do, but I hope that was informative.
