So, who in the world are you? What is this Gamer Mouse?

Just a humble game reviewer. I am Tanara Kuranov, your friendly neighborhood Gamer Mouse, running the eponymous show, Gamer Mouse, over on YouTube since late 2012. I make reviews of obscure little pieces of gaming, mostly Macintosh games.

Yes, Macintosh games. It's a broad subject that has little coverage.

Since starting the show, it's gone farther than I thought. I never imagined I'd have a hundred people waiting to see what's next, much less three hundred. I've discovered that I absolutely love delving into every little detail of a game, dissecting what makes it good and what makes it bad. I don't do this for a living, but I would really love it if that were the case.

If it were, I could share more games, more often, with more people. I could stream as well as record. We could have a grand old time, having fun with the all too forgotten games of the past.

Aren't you one of those weird furry people?

You'll find that me being a furry won't affect you very much.

As for me being weird, yes. I'm a furry who grew up on Macintosh games and was ping-ponged between console manufacturers as I grew up. I have a strange perspective on gaming, and sometimes life in general.

What is it you play, anyways?

Um...everything? Seriously, I don't really exclude based off of genre or platform. There are some genres I like more than others, but I can find myself pleasantly surprised.

Though, of course, the Macintosh is my platform of choice, and the more obscure or unappreciated the title, the better.

If you want an example, I reviewed a Swedish game about getting drunk during Lundakarnevalen:



Or, if you want a more recent example, here's a Star Trek adventure game that is all kinds of messed up, and I was the one to archive on the internet:



Okay, sweet. How does this Patreon work?

Well, it works differently for different people. The basics are that you pledge a certain amount per creation or per month, and, in return for supporting the creator, the Patrons get certain perks.

In this case, my content will remain open and free for anyone to see, and this is simply a way to support Gamer Mouse. A “tip” for content, if you will.

Currently, this Patreon is per review, meaning the charge is applied every time a new review is created. Don't panic, you can set a monthly limit, in case I'm quick to the draw on a series of reviews. If the show goes full-time, I'll switch the format to per month, and be able to output content much more quickly.

No other content, such as Let's Plays, unboxings, etc, are charged for. All of that is merely incidental side content that comes from the reviews!

In return for supporting the show, Patrons get early access to videos, the ability to see what's coming up, including progress reports and behind-the-scenes shots, the ability to vote on what I do next occasionally, and personalized floppy disks or postcards, along with anything else I may think of as the show grows.

Cool, cool. What are you doing with this money, then?

My main goal is to be able to pay basic living expenses with the support and take the show full time. Making reviews costs money, too. Tracking down games, getting props, maintaining and purchasing equipment like cameras, microphones, or computers. Basically, the more that gets pledged, the more goes into the show.

If support grows, the show can be updated more often, and more expensive games can be tracked down and reviewed. I'm also quite the archivist, and make sure that all the games I find are copied and stored for preservation. This is part of the mission statement of Gamer Mouse, not only sharing my thoughts on these games with people, but making sure these games aren't lost to the ages. I also hope to be able to travel to conventions, to meet the people that make all of this possible.

Thank you for your support, whether or not you decide to donate. I appreciate every one of the people who follow me and my content, and I realize that none of this would be possible without my fans and viewers.

You will be able to have early access to videos, and I'll give you a high-five. Well, no, I suppose I can't do that last bit, really, can I? But I will be very grateful, nonetheless! The Patron-only feed will tell what's coming up next, and you'll know progress on future reviews in detail. Patrons will also get a separate poll when I ask what games to play.
Special Access
$3 or more per review 0 patrons
There will likely be a regular request stream or custom roles for the Discord server at this level.
Lip Service
$10 or more per review 0 patrons
Patrons on this tier will be read off at the end of each video in my "glorious" voice. Nicknames are fine, but please, nothing obscene. I do review family friendly things sometimes!
Care Package
$15 or more per review 0 patrons
If you provide a shipping address, I'll send a monthly postcard and (potentially) floppy disk. If you want to potentially be subjected to my handwriting and artwork, this is the tier for you.
Whoa
$25 or more per review 0 patrons
In my best Keanu Reeves voice, whoa. I don't have a whole lot more than all of the above (yet) if someone decided to donate this much, aside from my eternal gratitude.
Goals
$0 of $1 per review
Every journey begins with a single step. Or dollar, in this case. This is about as much as I currently make off of YouTube per month, so consider me super excited that we're off the ground!
