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:

Rewards
Pledge $1 or more per game
17 patrons
You'll get a message whenever I release a new game, sporadic updates about what I'm working on, and of course my thanks and gratitude.

You'll get access to these games before they're released to the public, and I'll also share screenshots and early builds as I'm working on the games.
Lifetime supporter
$10 or more per game 25 patrons
You'll receive a free copy of every game I've released commercially, and all games I release for as long as this Patreon is active. Currently that means a free copy of Cosmic Express, A Good Snowman Is Hard To BuildSokobond and These Robotic Hearts of Mine.
Plus previous rewards for early access.
Personal playtester
