Wait... who are you, and what is a "Patreon"?
Epic Gaming Party is a Twitch.tv and YouTube channel run by Daemon Wolf and Cuddling Wolf and starring us and a lot of our friends. We are all geeks, gamers, crafters, and filmmakers who want to share our passions with you in the form of videos everyone can watch, especially our passion for gaming with our friends (and making new friends by throwing Epic Gaming Parties)
Patreon is a crowdfunding system where supporters get to pledge funding to artists based on continued work. Unlike Kickstarter, which is great for large projects that need a single bulk funding effort, Patreon works for channels like ours that will constantly and consistently post new content, meaning our project never ends, and so it's better to fund with an income rather than a single burst.
To put it another way.. Kickstarter is like a one night stand to support a single project.. Patreon is more like a relationship to support an artist's continued creations.
Okay, so what kind of stuff are you making?
I'm so glad you asked! Our main focus is our Twitch.tv channel where people can watch us live stream everything from playing games to making games. We do talk show style streams with our audience as part of the conversation, "Let's Play" streams, gaming challenge streams where we push our limits as gamers, and we spend a lot of time working on game projects like cosplay builds, crafting projects, custom PC cases, and even developing our own games.
We do not focus on any one particular type of gaming, since there are so many of us with so many tastes for different games. Our channel features tabletop board gaming, PC and console gaming, and pen & paper RPGs.
We also have a YouTube channel which will have a lot of different playlists depending on your interests, including crafting videos, Let's Play style videos, and talk show segments from our live stream.
Whether you watch us live and join in the chat, or watch the recording on youtube, we think everyone will be able to find something they enjoy.
Beyond all of that, we do special gaming events and live streams from conventions, so you can sometimes tune in and see us with a huge crowd of gamers!
Okay, so what is an Epic Gaming Party?
An Epic Gaming Party is exactly what it sounds like. We are all about playing games face-to-face with our friends. How else can we enjoy their cheers of comradery in cooperative games, or their cries of anguish when we play deathmatches and snipe their asses?
We're going to be throwing all sorts of gaming parties, covering all types of gaming, including PC and console gaming, tabletop, card gaming, and RPGs, as well as action gaming from boffer fighting to airsoft.
We want to do tournaments, too, and we'll get into that more below.
Sounds awesome!! What do you need my help for?
Producing this channel is going to be our primary work as filmmakers. Your pledges will go to all production costs, including the cost of the parties themselves, so you're not just supporting the channel, you're supporting the parties! The more funding we get, the bigger we can go, and we have a lot of stretch goals in mind for when we hit certain funding levels.
We have more expansion plans for the future, but we will work with our fans to find out what they want us to work on first before announcing them!
Well what do I get?
Check out our perks list below, plus you get the bragging rights of helping out with something awesome. Any time you meet someone who says they watch the channel, make their asses buy you a drink by telling them that you helped MAKE the channel happen. That's gotta be worth at least a shot!
Higher level perks include gifts every month from us, such as 8-bit artwork, T-shirts, and even candy and chocolate treats from Lunar Wolf Treats.
Yes... we have cats. They are quite ridiculous. A lot of times we manage to capture them being ridiculous on film so we'll have an entire separate playlist for the occasional cat video.
