Themeguy

is creating Demodyssey

Hi, I'm Themeguy, and I've been creating comics and content here and there for many years now, and I'm finally ready to buckle down and throw my hat into a weekly comic.

About the Comic
This webcomic project is called Demodyssey, a name made from forcibly smacking together "Democracy" and "Odyssey", because this is a comic where the adventure is affected by the votes of the audience. Together, both I and the readers will work together to craft together an adventure of a nature that even I do not know the extent of. 

Each week, on Tuesday, a new page will be posted of the adventure. On most of these updates, the readers will be presented with a variety of choices to vote on, and the choice with the most votes will be the advancement of next week's comic. These choices aren't just limited to what the character(s) will do, they'll also be choices for things such as choosing the pantheon of gods, the types of locales that our protagonist will stumble into, and even a bunch of attributes about our protagonist themself!

It's a formula rife with unpredictability. Nobody, not even myself, knows where the story will go. Will we be following a gallant hero clearing the trials of this land? Will we slowly corrupt the creature we create to go down the path of evil? Or just some weird dude running around stealing everyone's spoons? It all depends on the choices you make!
(and what options I/the $15+ patrons come up with to actually choose from)

About Payment
So you may have noticed, the payment method for this comic is listed as "Every 4th page". This is because due to the weekly, improvisational nature of the comic, I cannot build up a buffer for this project, and there may arise circumstances where I may be unable to deliver a comic for the week. It wouldn't quite be fair to charge per month if I miss a week, but at the same time, putting a whole month on pause if I only missed one comic isn't exactly great on my end either, so my model is a compromise between the two problems. Since there's roughly 4 weeks in a month, I figured it would instead be better to charge for every 4th comic instead.

Of course, 52 weeks in a year divided by 4 weeks, comes out to 13 payments instead of the 12 months in a year. Never fear! If I am somehow a very good noodle that year, and upload all 52 weeks, I will not charge above 12 payments a year. But, the system is built around the idea that I might not have time for Demodyssey on some weeks, maybe I'll even take voluntary breaks around the holidays too, so we might not even hit a point where we'd even reach 13 payments in a year.

This may, however, cause 2 payments a month in some cases where there's technically 5 Tuesdays, so do be aware of that.
Tiers
$1-$14: Behind the scenes + Clairvoyance
$1 or more per every 4th page.

You'll be able to see Patron-Only behind the scenes content like concept art. 


Your generosity has also granted you the power of clairvoyance, allowing you to have a little more insight as to where weekly choices will lead!


Plus you're also supporting me and I really appreciate that!

15+: Page WIPs + Create A Choice
$15 or more per every 4th page.

Once the weekly pages hit a point where I have them presentable enough to know what's going on. If there is a choice involved, I will post the page early, and allow the people of this tier to submit ideas for an option to be voted on. I will pick the best among them, and the patrons of this tier will all then vote on which of these choices will become one or more of the actual choices that everyone else can vote on for that week's comic.
