I am the main writer on a interactive story project called Sweet Berry: Perversions, based on an original IP done by me, based on discussions with a friend who formerly did writing within the IP. The artwork is currently going to be worked on solely by a very generous friend of mine named Re-Maker. What this Patreon allows is for me to rely less and less on my own funds and personal time for creating new material.

FAQ
  1. What is Sweet Berry?
    In a parallel future, A burgeoning all-ages franchise is exported from Japan, starring and helmed by the enigmatic 'Sweet' Berry, a pink-haired girl who promotes friendship and togetherness. At the same time, a set of laws passed in order to effectively render paedophilia extinct, by teaching sexuality to girls in their early teens. What no-one expected was that 'Sweet' Berry seemed to be almost waiting for those laws to pass, as she wormed her way into the minds of her fans, creating a generation of girls who felt that exploring D/s and bondage play with other girls was right.
  2. Who is Sweet Berry?
    Sweet Berry is a faux-lolita girl of apparently around 16-18 years old, who is actually millenia old, who is nicknamed by one of her long-term victims "The Red-Eyed Mistress Of Desires". When a girl is on the cusp of 18 in her world, she appears to them as her real self, the first time they'll remember seeing her as such, and takes them into her realm to find completion in themselves within an endless adult fantasy, their desires enslaved by Berry.
  3. What does this have to do with the Patreon?
    The various narratives in the adventure game will be, using various characters from numerous media, the enslavement of their desires to Berry, as their mortal form is trapped within Berry's realm. When a narrative arc is finished, the Patreon users will be given a chance to choose which path out of the many on offer will be 'correct'. When a character has no paths left to map, the same users will get to choose which path is considered as canonical for that character.
  4. Am I allowed to write stories in the Sweet Berry universe myself?
    Sure! Just try to use original characters, except if you have an idea for how one of the 'captive' characters within a narrative could have got there, or you wish to use a franchise I haven't.
  5. What does my money buy me?
    Well, among other things, versions of the art done for me by ReMaker that aren't on deviantART. Other things include stories written within the Sweet Berry universe, as well as the game itself, when it's done.
  6. When will the game be finished?
    ...Don't ask me that, I don't even know. Even if I kept to just the girls listed, I could be at it until the day I die of old age. I do not have unlimited time to work on this, but I will say this. There will be playable builds posting at least bi-monthly once I have completed the numerous revisions needed to just make a playable alpha.
  7. Are you profiting off this?
    (Checks my empty Paypal) Nope. I'd be breaking the law if I did.
Tiers
Lurker Tier
$1 or more per month
This tier is purely for those who aren't likely to be able to afford to back me for very much, if anything. Quite literally, you lurk. Everything will be demoted to this tier eventually. Just wait and see what happens.
Basic Patron Tier
$5 or more per month
When I feel something is ready for people to look at, it'll go here. When I feel a Perversions thread is ready, which won't be too often, it'll go here.


Nothing is decided, nothing is your choice. This is just the place most of the content will be posted.

Beta Tester
$10 or more per month
Stories go through levels of development, just like games, and when your story is also a game, well, you need beta testers even more.


For Perversions, this means looking over the passages, giving critique on where the narrative flow is odd, making suggestions the Alpha Tester tier missed and asking, usually, why half of it goes nowhere.

Alpha Tester
$15 or more per month
Some of my work, I don't think it will ever look right, feel right or anything else right.


Perversions is full of empty passages, my other writing is developing incredibly slowly...


As an Alpha Tester, you get the great job of telling me why the hell my work is getting nowhere!

You Saw Nothing Tier
$20 or more per month
Material at this tier, more often than not, will be things like my translation work on RPG Maker games and my narratives based off stories that someone else already wrote.


Also, it will be material that just plain I don't want to send out even for the Tester tiers, so I just leave it here, where almost no-one will see it.
