Hello!

This is Problem Machine!

I create many things.

Some of these are small: I write short blog posts, mostly 500-1000 words, on a weekly basis. These mini-essays explore topics of game design and the ways we create and experience different forms of art.

Some of these are less small. I've created a few electronic music albums, have begun creating monthly projects and, though it is currently on hiatus, soon plan on returning to my larger game project EverEnding.

I also stream games! Check out my twitch channel to see me play through and share my thoughts on the experience in real-time. I'm still trying to settle on a schedule for these streams, but currently they're happening every Wednesday and Sunday sometime in the afternoon for 3 hours.

I find all of these pursuits are very artistically and intellectually rewarding, and I like to believe that other people will find them useful and interesting as well. However, the work produced is not inherently financially rewarding – and that's where you come in! If you'd like to help me continue to do the work I'm doing, please consider supporting me with a small financial contribution.

Because I'm working on a broad range of things it would be difficult to set this up as a per-post delivery, so I'll be running this as a monthly campaign. I will endeavor to produce work consistently enough to justify this monthly outlay: 2-3 game streams and one mini-essay each week, and one project every month – usually a game or something game-related.
