Greetings traveller - and welcome to my Patreon page! I am the delicious and mythical - GriffinMuffin. But if you want, you can call me Justin. I started YouTube about a year ago. I initially had a hard time finding what I really wanted to achieve with the channel. But as time has gone by, I discovered what that aim is: I want to explore the stories behind our video games. I want to talk about what makes our games great and what makes some of them bad. I want to discuss how we, as gamers, can make our games better. I want to research what influences our games from a storytelling perspective, as well as a game design perspective.

One of my most popular videos was 'How to Make The Witcher Netflix Series Awesome' and from there I realized: this is what people like and I'm pretty good at it. From then on, I focused on doing opinion pieces, lore essays, reports and commentary regarding certain games. Another popular video series I started was the chapter recaps of 'The Witcher' books by Andrzej Sapkowski.

Previous comments from subscribers asked me regularly on bringing back the series. While I am currently working on them, I can only pay artists sparingly, so it is causing a massive delay in the production of the recaps. So that's why I'm here.

To make YouTube a full-time career, I'm going to need your help.

Since I've graduated from university I came to realize my dream in life: I want to tell the stories behind our video games. I can do this in a variety of ways, and YouTube is an ideal place to do it. If you want to support me and help the channel grow, becoming a patron is the best way to do that.
As a father that works full-time (that works minimum wage), I don't have a lot of options for a secondary source of income so any amount of money you pledge will be so helpful.

But what's in it for you?

My goals for the channel are as follows:
1. Have enough pledge money per month to pump-out videos of high production value (ie. chapter recaps and more in-depth essays)
2. Start Twitch streaming a variety of live shows and community-inspired sessions with Discord (like a podcast).
3. Improve upload schedule by hiring editors and writers.
4. Open a merchandise store filled with goodies.

At the moment, the channel is in relative infancy. With your help though, we could turn the channel into something awesome. Regular video uploads, continuation of series (like the chapter recaps), Twitch streaming, creating a podcast to discuss games as a community in Discord and so much more!

I've never been so inspired in my life to do what I am doing. I'm never without an idea and I am always working on a video. I love making videos for people like yourself. If you want to help me achieve my dream - then you're awesome.

Thank you.

At this tier, you become a part of the main squad. You'll get first offer to play games with me and would be included in giveaways and competitions I might decide to do. Patrons at this tier will be granted access to chat with me while I play games.

As the channel grows, this tier will have added perks.


You will also get my heartfelt personal thanks at the end of every video. Cos face it - you're awesome.

Goals
$0 of $500 per month
Increase in higher production value videos
This amount per month would allow me to begin scheduling release of videos of higher production value (ie. chapter recaps, in-depth research essays) back-to-back. As soon as one is released - I can begin production on the next one. 
I would still be reliant on full-time employment at this goal, it's a step further toward my dream though.
