Thank you for taking the time to check out our Patreon! We appreciate everyone who supports us by watching the show, but our Patrons are the ones who make it possible for us to keep making content.

Thank you.

Who are we and what is Stop Skeletons From Fighting?
Stop Skeletons From Fighting is professionally produced, heavily researched, highly informative video game documentaries and reviews. The team is made of up Grace Kramer and Derek Alexander who together have a combined 15 years of video production experience.
SSFF strives to set itself apart from the typical video game show by using a positive spin to highlight lesser-known or underrated games, entire series, and stories from the industry. Some of the topics covered include:

• Hideo Kojima vs. Konami
• Mighty Number 9 Kickstarter Explained
• 3D Gameboy Advance Games
• Resident Evil
• The Rise of Dark Souls, From Software, and Hidetaka Miyazaki
• Clock Tower
• Faxanadu
• Castlevania Symphony of the Night

Derek has been producing video reviews of retro (and sometimes modern) video games since 2007 as the Happy Video Game Nerd (HVGN), and was a audio and video contractor from 2008-2012. In late-2014 he dropped the HVGN name, brought on Grace, and established Stop Skeletons From Fighting, as new outlet for video game documentaries and reviews.


The Short Version
This is for our pre-produced videos, not streams. $1 gets your name in the credits of all future reviews. $2 gets you access to the Activity Feed. $5 gets you all of the above and access to the private SSFF forum and Discord. $10 (2 payments required) gets you membership in Uncle Derek's Bad 'n Rad Mystery Game Mailing Club. $20 (2 payments required, limit 4) for a monthly Skype call with Derek and Grace to chat about Video Production. $100 and we'll call up your favorite pizza joint and order you a pizza!

What is Patreon?

Patreon is a unique crowdfunding platform that is basically an ongoing "Kickstarter". For years Youtube ad revenue and DVD sales brought in a decent chunk of change, but it was never enough to buy new gear or pay the bills. It bought many pizzas and beers! But the time came to take it to a level beyond pizza and beer money.

Let me be clear, this is not a pay wall for our content. New videos will still be free on the Youtube channel. If you just want to watch, hell that’s enough! But if you like watching and wish there was more, then you're in the right place, friend!

With Patreon, viewers can not only support the show, but they can also obtain VIP access to behind-the-scenes pictures, videos, podcasts, work in progress stuff, and vote for future videos. Plus there'll be random giveaways like great games Derek finds for cheap while prowling the thrift of Seattle (PS2/GC/Xbox are most common right now). Help support and show, get VIP access to chat with Derek and Grace, and maybe win some cool free stuff! Everybody wins!

What about Live Streams?

We’re asking for support only for video reviews not live stream archives or podcasts. Stuff like that isn't as time consuming or production demanding, so it won’t count in this Patreon.

The Future

Our goal is to make Stop Skeletons From Fighting the greatest, highest-quality show on the planet and to connect with the fans to have some dumb fun along the way. Video are the main focus though, and with the support of our Patrons, we’ve been able to increase our production output from one video a month to at least two videos a month with the aim of creating three videos a month! Even if you're not interested in crazy shenanigans, stick with SSFF and you'll at least discover awesome games you didn't know anything about.

Video Editors / Staff

This is a big one! We have a lot of ambitions, but to really move the channel forward, we'd need a few extra hands. And we want those hands to be paid! Currently we are able to occasionally bring on an editor, but we want to make this a more permanent position!
