Already in its ninth year of production with hundreds of reviews already available, the original Bullet Heaven has been a fan-favorite review webseries for a video game genre that has not only seen rapid decline in recent decades but also fervent support from a truly dedicated core audience: The Shoot-'em-up, or, more affectionately, "Shmups." Getting the word out can be challenging, but Bullet Heaven has brought new players into gaming's most hardcore game type with in-depth reviews of the newest titles and old classics alike, all recorded from their native consoles and operating systems since 2009! 

While we have great connections with many modern publishers to cover the latest and greatest shmups - which comprise a decent of the entire series - all of our retro titles and imports from Japan have come entirely out of pocket, with the help of this campaign.  Bearing this in mind, we often still get requests to cover old and rare titles that we still don't yet have, and this is becoming increasingly hard to do because of two main factors:
  • Shooting games, on the whole, actually make up the most expensive video game genre on average. 
  • The retro market has continued to spiral out of control, becoming even more prohibitively expensive as a result. 
  •  The Canadian Dollar has continued to languish below the US Dollar, increasing the cost of procuring them even more. 
This Patreon will allow fans of Bullet Heaven to contribute to rarer and more expensive titles which still come largely out-of-pocket for us. In addition, it also paves the way for better technology to produce the show when it is needed, though this only happens every three years or so. While this campaign is by episode, you can still choose how much you contribute in the course of a given month with a specified cap, if you so desire!

In short, every dollar obtained through this campaign has gone and will continue to go directly back into production, which keeps the show running even longer. Thank you!

Wow, you're awesome to the X-TREME~! As a Bullet Heaven Patron, you get to see exclusive videos and everything from the Boss no Buki tier... but we're not really sure what we can offer at this level because everything we could think of would get eaten up by the pledge and nothing could go to the show. But we'd think of something! In addition, $50+ pledgers get a special line in the actual show credits for the next episode, right alongside Ser and Dae! (Downloads are linked monthly by email.) 
地球救い主 (Chikyuu sukuinushi)
$100 or more per Episode 0 of 5 patrons
We can't overstate how awsome you are!! This is the ultra deluxe tier. At $100.00 an episode, we offer everything from before, but with the added bonus of exclusive printed art, buttons and more signed by Ser and Dae. It's like your own personal Crate Dae but from SMP to you! There can also be only 5 because we have decent plans for this and shipping costs from Canada is insane. (This reward is a package sent at the end of the month. Please allow sufficient time for postage!)
