Welcome!

Hi everyone, PushingUpRoses here. Welcome to my Patreon campaign. Since you have in fact found yourself browsing this page, potentially interested in becoming a patron, let me take this opportunity to tell you a bit about myself.

I’ve been creating gaming videos on YouTube for the last 7 years. It started with a let’s play of Quest For Glory I, and continued until I started putting literally every idea I’ve ever had into video form. Well. Maybe not all of them. People would likely run away screaming if I did that, but over the last few years I’ve been wanting to create more unique topic videos and entertaining fare on retro video games (or anything else that churns my butter.) My personal favorites from my catalog are my moon logic puzzle video, my save slots retrospective, a nostalgic video on David the Gnome, and an analysis about how sex is portrayed in video games. I also covered video game food design because honestly, who doesn’t like a nice digital steak?



I like to offer a variety of content with different tones on my channel. You’ll find snarky, humorous videos on specific games and topics, and you’ll also find videos on serious topics, like how mental illness is portrayed in gaming:



Variety is the spice of life (or so I am told), so I like having analysis videos alongside snarky ones. I like to show a range of interest and emotion for what I am doing. I compare my serious videos to a nice, elegant lobster dinner with a glass of fine wine. We all want that sometimes. But on the other hand, sometimes I just want some drunk food in the form of greasy burgers and a bottle of cheap beer. That represents my silly videos. ...This analogy is starting to become unhinged and is making me hungry, but you get the idea. We all need a rich diet in our lives, yes? Yes.

My Obstacles and Goals as a Creator

We all have obstacles to overcome. Mine comes in the form of mental illness, which I am very candid about online. I decided to try YouTube not only to make entertaining videos, but to challenge my Body Dysmorphia. It was, and is important to me that I have this outlet where I can create something despite constantly being at odds with myself. It can get difficult. But with the support of my generous fans and patrons here on this campaign, I've been able to reach people with my platform and do something that I love and challenges me mentality. My goal as a creator is simple: To keep improving in every facet of this hobby-turned-job. Improving the quality of my videos, continuing to teach people about mental illness, and providing content that not only helps me but helps my audience too. Since starting my campaign my videos have improved as I was able to afford new software and hardware to make them better. I am very humbled by the generosity of my patrons.

My channel is "smaller", and revenue is tough these days so every pledge directly helps me and my channel to keep growing and getting better, and let's not beat around the bush: like most people who create, I'd love to get paid for my work. It will motivate me to keep creating and maintaining the quality of my videos, writing, and other creative endeavors. 

What are the benefits to becoming your Patron?

I offer rewards depending on what you pledge! My most popular reward is probably the access to my private streams here on Patreon for $5 pledges; they are completely off the rails, very candid, and we have a good time there. I also offer $2 rewards and $15 dollar rewards which are detailed in the side bar under "rewards." 

Thank you for considering becoming my patron. You have reached the end of this profile. So...yanno. Enjoy your day. Have a coffee and a pizza. And remember: Work hard, play hard, and get plenty of roughage in your diet.

Everything in the $2 tier, plus: Patron participant live streams!  This means depending on the game, there will be spots open for patrons to come and play.  The stream of course will still be private and open to anyone paying for this tier, but the spots may be first come first serve depending on how many patrons attend and how many spots are available.  I will provide you with any codes or passwords you may need to join a stream in a Patreon post, so make sure you have Patreon Email notifications enabled.  Streams may also include:
  • Live streaming a video game 
  • Q & A
  • Video game and/or random discussion
  • Special guests and co-hosts
  • Patron participation
*Participation streams mean that you, the patron, can join the game.  Usually when I do these streams, I will stream a game like Quiplash or Drawful, and thus several patrons can join in at once and play the game along with me.  Like I said, spots are first come first serve, but people are generally good about sitting out and taking turns.

Access to everything in the $5 reward tier, plus:
  • A monthly postcard written by me, sent to you.  You will receive these every month as long as you are a $15 patron.  I will write a personalized message to you every month or perhaps write you a haiku.  I like haikus.  (IMPORTANT: I will need a shipping address for this.  Please make sure you send me your address and make sure it is all typed in correctly so you will for sure get your postcard! YES, I will send to international addresses.)
  • My eternal gratitude.
