A game is series of interactions. Through the interplay of conversation and personal fantasia we create moments which become stories, personal mythologies in the lives of others we touch. It's a really fancy way of saying that playing pretend is good for us, a lesson that somehow we often have to relearn throughout our lives. I like to make those games and I want to share those sorts of games with you. 

My games focus on under-loved news headlines and events that catch my interest. Topics may include but are not limited to doing MDMA with your lab's octopus, being a coyote at a beach party, or writing postcards to a friend in a dying arcology. With your help I can create more bespoke games, potentially featuring collaboration and visual art. In the future, I hope that I can establish a backer tier for physical games, small games made for generous patrons that want homemade zines. 

What You Get
Small queer games
Serial fiction that bothers you
Occasional posts informing you about my latest projects
Significantly less spiders
Tiers
Beetle
$1 or more per creation

Fond of both leaf matter and games. Over 25% of described life on the planet is beetles and there must be something behind that popularity. Access to updates and game drafts.

Moth
$5 or more per creation

Attracted to artificial light and wool clothes. The majority of the Order Lepidoptera is moths and there must be something behind that popularity. Access to all drafts and completed PDF releases of all games.
