About

Well hello there! My name's Chris Fischer and i'm the creator of Chronicles, a YouTube series  and website dedicated to uncovering the history of video games.

Unlike other history shows on the site, Chronicles covers the entirety of a video game franchise from beginning to end across multiple videos and one feature-length documentary. This is done in part to give every single game their due diligence as not only is the whole series important but the individual titles as well.

We've covered a wide swath of topics from the long and complicated history of the Fire Emblem seriesthe heartbreaking and maligned story behind Falloutthe oft forgotten franchise that defined SEGA in the 90's, Sakura Wars, and many more to come such as Pokemon, Tales, Metroid, and Persona.

Their are a multitude of reasons why I  go through the arduous task of combining through all of these franchises respective histories. I hope to shed a light on the developers behind our favorite games and give them the credit they so rightfully deserve. I want there to be a definitive video out there on nearly any game that anyone can easily find. Most importantly, I just love to make these videos as I find their histories utterly fascinating. We can only be human.

I couldn't have made it this far without the dedication and tenacity of the many communities that surround the games I cover alongside the many fans that have become mainstays of the channel. As we continue to delve into new and intriguing franchises we'll need you more then ever.

What is Patreon?
Patreon is a crowdfunding platform that let's you and many others become patrons of the arts and pledge a regular payment to creators so they can support themselves and keep being able to make new content on a regular basis.

Patreon, and other sites like it, are better for creators such as myself during hard times such as today. It's more reliable then sponsorships and advertising due to YouTube ads barely making any money and sponsorships being unreliable and sometimes downright sleazy. Using a site such as this allows our content to be 100% uncompromising in its vision without having to stoop to shady practices such as clickbait. Having a predictable payment schedule doesn't hurt either.

Patreon allows us to serve directly to you, the viewers, without having to focus entirely on following current trends. Your voice matters here.

How often will I end up paying?
Donations operate on a monthly basis, and with the plan being to release at least 3-5 videos a month those will be well spent. From now on, if I release nothing for one month I won't charge anyone for that month. This will only happen if I stop writing scripts for one whole month, which is unlikely to occur.

Why do you need the money?
The main reason is that I want to work on Chronicles full time. No secondary jobs or part time work, just Chronicles and everything surrounding it. My future plans for the channel, and its website, are only reachable if i'm able to work on this channel full time, so obtaining that is paramount.

But getting there still won't be possible with just myself. I need more editors to keep up with the amount of work I have planned, more writers to find that work and make it a reality, translators to translate material and interviews from foreign languages, and in-house voice actors to keep all the content flowing towards you. Many might work for free but everyone deserves to get payed for their time on the project. Patreon would enable us to reach that goal. In all, right now i'd like to hire:
- Two Editors
- Two Writers
- One Translator

What's in it for me?
Plenty. All Patreons who pledge $1 or more will receive access to the exclusive Patreon forums where i'll discuss any and all current plans for the channel weekly, show any behind the scenes shenanigans, listen to any insight you have on an episode or script both new or old, and more. Plus you'll be able to head to the Patreon exclusive Discord forums where we can hold even more discussions there.

Pledge $3 a month and you'll have early access to new scripts, sound only versions of soon to be released episodes, and all the interesting bits of research that i've found along the way from artwork compilations to the many intriguing articles we've read as soon as we've made them. Don't expect an exact schedule for these

Pledge $5 and the second we've finished an episode, whether it be weeks or days before the set release date, you'll be able to watch it in a special unlisted video without any of the superfluous end cards and shout outs attached. Same goes for all the videos we've previously released who'll all be remastered for Blu-Ray specifications. As a bonus you'll get your names in the credits of each video.

Will I get previous Patron-only content when I subscribe?
All previously released content will be available as soon as your payment goes through at the beginning of each month.

Anything else to declare?
The choice of whether to support us or not is yours in the end, dear viewer. Whether you choose to support the channel or not is all up to you. Either way we'll still be aiming to become the number one documentary channel on YouTube and giving each and every creator their spot in the limelight.
