About Xalavier Nelson Jr.

There’s a public Discord channel, and Patrons can go #barkstage.

My name is Xalavier Nelson Jr., and you might know me from my work on Hypnospace Outlaw, SkateBIRD, Can Androids Pray, or literally dozens of other things. I'm an award-winning narrative director, writer, and creator of color, making a metric ton of cool stuff with amazing collaborators. Through Patreon, you can directly allow me to continue building weird, wonderful worlds, in pretty much every genre imaginable.

Worlds like An Airport for Aliens Currently Run by Dogs (Steam link)!
It's an open-world comedy adventure game where you travel through a universe of simulated airports run by stock photo dogs!
It single-handedly made me love making games again!!


Your pilot, clearly not piloting.

Games like Space Warlord Organ Trading Simulator (Steam link)
The sci-fi body horror market tycoon you didn't know you needed!!

I’m going to get real for a second: My brain works better when it’s creating things that people will see today.
Not in a month, or in two years - now.

So, for the past year, Dog Airport Game has grown in front of a live audience. We've gradually introduced a full slate of airports, memorialized the departed pets of patrons, and taken the project from a proof-of-concept to a game that you can spend hours exploring. And we're still adding stuff - thanks to you!

Folks seem to care about the wild things I make, whether they're comics, body horror Pokemon Snap-alikes, or hours-long Twitter threads that end in horrible puns. I don't take that for granted - so, from step one, I'm looking for opportunities to thank you for your inherent contribution to my process.

If I'm heading up a project, patrons get free copies, and in-progress builds. I'm giving y'all details about the things I'm making, their progress, and the amazing people I'm making them with. I'm immortalizing your lovely pets in my projects - even down to straight-up sticking a picture of them inside the world!

Because we're already making these worlds together.


This patron dog is not named Gorby in real life, but he did get covered by Rock Paper Shotgun recently. Good job, Gorby!

That’s what this Patreon represents. It's my way to put whatever wild thing I dream up next into your hands, as soon as possible. All proceeds go to support my work, my collaborators, and my incredibly greedy cats.

Whether you join me on this journey or not - thank you!
