About

Who are you?

Hi, I'm Alan Hazelden! I'm 30 and have two brothers and no pets. I'm an above-average juggler, a below-average dancer, and I'm the only person to have ever completed Mega-GIRP.

More pertinently, I make videogames such as the PAX10/IndieCade nominated Sokobond, the adorable A Good Snowman Is Hard To Build, and the rage-inducing Cosmic Express.

I love making small weird games like Shit SnakeYou're Pulleying My LegMirror Isles and more and releasing them for free, but unfortunately this isn't a great business model. I'd love it if you could fund me to make more games like this and release them for free with no ads.

When you become a patron, you're agreeing to give me a small amount of money for each free game I make. This will be infrequent, probably 1-6 times a year.


What kind of games do you want to make?

Mostly I expect to use PuzzleScript to make puzzle games like these:

From time to time I may also create non-PuzzleScript games such as:


Paying it forward

I'm not the only person making games who's asking for money and I'm definitely not the most deserving. I believe that if I'm somehow able to make a small amount of money from this, I should use that position to help others.

With this in mind, at least 20% of the funds from this campaign will go to supporting game developers and game critics on Patreon.

Another way I can help out is to highlight some of the less successful [arbitrarily defined as under $500/month] Patreon campaigns that you may wish to contribute to instead of my own:
