Who are we?

My name is Michael Maxwell. Me and my partner Ben Luigi are the authors of Breach: The Archangel Job (Currently completed, but still unpublished). We plan on making more games and we don't plan on stopping there. We are also avid players of Tabletop Roleplaying and I personally have GMed over thousands of sessions over the last 7 years.

What do we do?

We used to write games and short stories for other people, but for now we're working on our own projects. We create interactive fictions and make up stuff as we go along. We plan on making more peripheral content, both for our own writing pleasure, and your reading pleasure!

With your support, we can keep writing games, short stories, maybe even commission an artist! Oh the many beauties of outsourc-I mean, "Creative Alliances".

Why do we need Patreon?

To be perfectly straight and honest, both me and Ben are eager to create our games, as they are our dreams and stories we've made with each other since we were in high school together. We have a whole plethora of stories from different genres to show to you all, and if we're going to do this right, and not take up an entire 4 years of making a single game again, we're going to need help.

That's where you may come in. We are by no means professional when it comes to these things, and we can't make any solid promises, but we are eager to learn, write, share, and do whatever it takes to make our dreams a reality(Or at least a published work of fiction).

Royalties or any form of income are split between me and Ben, and neither of us are working full time anymore, nor are we pursuing higher education due to our limited finance, so right now, we'll be pouring everything we've got into our projects.

... We've dropped almost everything we had to pursue an unsure dream of working on things we love. Naivety at it's finest. We can only hope that this will work out. But we know for sure that we will love whatever it is we'll be making!

How will being a Patron work? (Payments and rewards)

As of the current moment, my Patreon charges upfront. Though the current game has not yet been released, with the many months time it takes for CoG to release the game, I would like to go ahead and make use of what materials I have in the meanwhile. For now, there is only four different tiers. I cannot make any promises, but I will try my best to uphold my advertised benefits.

If you wish to only receive certain benefits, or have any questions about my patreon, feel free to message me in my forum or my E-Mail ([email protected]).
