In Portal, you're tested and trained to use a really interesting and unique mechanic via the Portal Gun, but when you get to the very end of the game, you use almost none of what you learned to fight the final boss. What's With That?
Hi there. My name's CJ, and I run What's With Games, a YouTube Show in which I look at neat things in games and try to get to the bottom of just what's with them. I cover all sorts of topics, from mechanics, to games as a whole, and even some player psychology stuff. In general, I touch on a lot of Game Design topics, but my real goal is to just look at things in games in a way that few other people think to look at them.
Upload Schedule Info
When I first started the Patreon, I was confident in my ability to maintain consistent uploads every 2 weeks, and I actually did manage to do this for a total of 4 videos. As you could guess, things change, and right now, with other priorities in my life, I've fallen back to releasing videos "when I get them done." I understand if infrequent uploads don't sound enticing when it comes to supporting someone monetarily, so don't feel pressured, since Patreon is always optional. I put this in the hands of my Patrons to decide whether they will be paying "Per Month" or "Per Video" as my upload schedule slows.

Why I'm On Patreon

Above all else, I'm most excited about the community I'm going to be building through the Patreon Discord. All the rewards excite me a lot, but I hope to foster a great little community for people who are interested in looking at games in a unique way to hang out, chat, and possibly even help out with future episodes of the show. To maximize the potential behind this community, the Discord is only $1. Of course, if other rewards fit your fancy, you'll still earn access to the Discord and be able to get the bonus stuff as well, so hopefully those things interest you. That said, your support is 100% optional, and if you don't want to or can't support me, by all means do not.

If you're reading this, I can't thank you enough. Of course, all Patrons are 100% appreciated, but even people who are just interested enough to read this far mean the world to me. Y'all are beautiful people.
Tiers
Discord and Blog
$1 or more per month 6 patrons
Even if you just give $1, I can't thank you enough for the support you're providing.
This'll get you access to my Patreon-Only Discord and Blog. Just a little community for the supporters to discuss stuff and a blog for people to see what I'm up to.
Additionally, as a token of my undying thanks, I'll carefully read your name over and over until it stops sounding like a word in my head.
Includes Discord rewards
Script Access
$5 or more per month 3 patrons
At this tier, you can receive access to the scripts for each video I make. I format my scripts a little strangely, but it's pretty easy to figure out. If I ever have a video that I end up scrapping, you'll still get access to the script, so that's cool too.
Includes Discord rewards
Early Access to Videos
$10 or more per month 0 patrons
For this, you'll get to see each video a day early--possibly sooner, depending on how scheduling plays out.
Includes Discord rewards
Behind the Scenes Commentaries
$15 or more per month 0 patrons
With every video I put out, I'll create an audio file in which I go into detail about that video, similar to commentaries on a game or movie. I'll talk about the whole production process, behind the scenes info, where the topic came from, anything I may have left out in the video, etc. At this tier, you get access to that.
Includes Discord rewards
Beta-Viewing
$20 or more per month 0 patrons
Instead of just seeing each video a day early, you'll get to see videos before they're even done. When each video is close to being done, I'll export it and show you guys, asking for feedback on editing, among other things.
Includes Discord rewards
Editing Streams
$25 or more per month 0 patrons
For $25, you'll have access to editing streams. Basically, when I edit videos, I'll schedule and stream myself editing, and you lucky bunch will be able to watch, chat, hang out, and possibly even make suggestions for edits.
Includes Discord rewards
Content Creation Tutorials
$30 or more per month 0 patrons
For aspiring Content Creators, lemme help you out. I take pride in the quality of my show, and I'm not afraid of sharing that quality with you guys. Have a script you want me to critique? Need help learning to edit? Having trouble with getting the Green Screen just right? I'm your dude.

Math Tutoring
$50 or more per month 1 patron
It started out as a joke, but you guys expressed real interest so here it is. I graduated with a Bachelors in Mathematics, so I know a thing or two about numbers. At this tier, I'll give you a one on one tutoring session in pretty much any Math field, be it Algebra, Geometry, Calculus, Statistics, Differential Equations, Number Theory, you name it.
Includes Discord rewards
I'll tell you my middle name
$200 or more per month 0 patrons
Yo not a lot of people know my middle name so this is some pretty exclusive info here.

Goals
$65 of $90 per month
This is, on average, how much my medical expenses cost per month. Sometimes it's a little more, but if we get here, I won't need to worry about those costs nearly as much.
