Hi guys!

If you've heard of me, you probably know I'm co-creator of, and Team Captain on, Dara O'Briain's Go 8 Bit - a video gaming comedy show on the UK TV channel "Dave". Here's some of my stuff from that show: https://youtu.be/JGEXz9kgED8. And here's some from the spin-off show "Go 8 Bit DLC": https://youtu.be/IbcIObZDRUI

I also do a number of live/online gaming shows, including WiFi Wars and The Video Game Game Show Show (http://wifiwars.co.uk) and have been on a bunch of other shows in the UK, like Videogame Nation, Console Yourself and Ginx Live (more info/vids etc on my website: https://www.stevemcneil.co.uk)

Given all that, you might wonder why I've set up a Patreon account. Obviously I'm really lucky to get to do what I do but, the truth is, I'm nowhere near successful enough yet, career-wise, for those shows to pay enough for me to afford to keep doing stuff without bringing some money in. At the moment, I don't even know if we'll make any more Go 8 Bit, and it's been a year since we filmed the last lot!

Basically, I'd love to commit more fully to making regular stuff for you guys and putting it online, for free. I figure those who can afford to bung me a bit of cash (either ad-hoc or regularly) could help fund it, and we can all enjoy it. Otherwise I'll have to start temping again. Which is fine, if I have to. Ultimately, I've got to feed my kid, and she doesn't eat retweets.

My schedule from 1st September will be:

Mondays: Youtube video - "Retro Revisited"
Wednesdays: Youtube video - "Video Diary" or "Behind-The-Scenes" video
1st and 3rd Friday of the month: Podcast - "Let's Do A Gaming!"

Also, once a month, I'll now be uploading a far more 'produced' video than my previous Let's Plays. This will be researched, scripted, and edited, and hopefully of more 'value'/interest to a broader audience than the Let's Plays. Basically, rather than spend my time making 20 mediocre Lets Play clips, moving forward I'm going to try to use that time make one video you'll actually really look forward to, and that will offer a different sort of content to everything else I do at present.

If you can afford to bung me anything at all, it'll mean the world to me. And I'll setup some nice rewards for the guys that do.

Thank you so much for all your support!

P.S: If there's any rewards/goals etc missing that you'd like to see, drop me a line. I'm more than happy to discuss changing the things I create, and the rewards/goals, to suit what you want. After all, if I'm going to get paid for doing this stuff, I should do what you want, right?

P.P.S: I've made the focus of this my Youtube channel/Podcast but, obviously, your support will allow me to do all the "not-a-proper-job" things I do to (hopefully) entertain you. xx
