I want to make games. It's been far too long, and my creative fingers are getting itchy.

I grew up with a Commodore 64, and learned game programming on an Amiga, so for me games are about fun rather than blistering frame rates and photo-realistic graphics.

When I started my comic back in 2006, I had a lot of free time, because my job was boring and stupid and I had it mostly-automated. The actual work portion of my job was maybe an hour a day, and the rest of the time I was writing stories, working on my Heroes Unlimited campaigns, or programming games. I ran a Necromunda campaign with its own newspaper. I took on my brother in small-scale robot wars challenges using Lego. I wrote 50,000 words during the month of November, 2009. I drew a webcomic.

5 years ago, I quit that day job and became self-employed, hoping to turn my skills into a fortune. It hasn't happened yet, and money is super-tight, so I'm turning to Patreon to help make my dreams come true.

Basically, my goal is this: I want to tell stories, be they in the form of comics, written work, or games. I'll engage you guys in all progress, methods and observations, incorporating your ideas and suggestions along the way. That way we'll end up with something we can all be proud of.

Access to the 'patrons-only' feed, with behind-the-scenes info, character bios, and alternative artwork. If you're a patron when the game goes live I'll also include your name on the 'contributors' page.

Gang member tier: send me a photo and I'll include your likeness as a member of one of the game's criminal gangs. I'll also email you a double-size version of the artwork for your own use (as an avatar, or whatever), and your name will appear in the credits as '[gang] member'.
Goals
$9 of $65 per month
I earn roughly fifty pounds a day. If I can earn that through pledges, I can afford to spend a whole extra DAY making cool stuff, instead of just the few hours free time here and there.
