Adventure Gamers started as a humble fan site in 1998 but grew into one of the premier online magazines of its kind and the largest English-language website devoted to the adventure genre. We specialize in covering computer and video games that focus on puzzle solving within a narrative framework, from the oldest text and graphic adventures (such as ZorkKing’s Quest, and Monkey Island) up through today’s most recent releases (such as Thimbleweed Park, Kathy Rain and Samorost).

With an audience of over 100,000 unique visitors every month, our goal is to be the trusted source for all international game news, previews, and reviews, interviews with people involved in adventure game development, and feature coverage of industry events such as the Game Developers Conference, E3, and gamescom. Our active forums are home to a large community of adventure gamers from all over the world.

Why Patreon?
We've been around for almost 20 years and want to be around for much longer, but if we’re to evolve, innovate, and continue to thrive in these challenging times for online magazines, we’re going to need your help. We don’t plan to reinvent the wheel, merely improve where we can and expand in exciting new ways, whether it’s providing extensive coverage in new formats like video, increasing the efficiency with which we can cover new game releases, or even exploring whether we can turn this into an actual physical magazine. 

There are lots of ways we know we can be better, but upgrading costs money we simply don’t have. Our website design is quite outdated, as is our forum software, and we're looking to provide options for readers to support us in our efforts to make Adventure Gamers a home for passionate genre fans that is going to be around for decades to come. Being privately funded unfortunately means that we are currently running at a loss each month, which limits our abilities in what we can deliver. Having an actual budget to work with will not only help us maintain daily operations but to keep looking ahead, allowing us to redesign the site, pursue physical magazine options, purchase proper video equipment for (regular) interviews, look into a mobile app, create a physical Aggies statuette, visit more events and much more. It's our dream to one day be able to work on Adventure Gamers full-time, instead of it being a side-project right now, largely driven by a team of passionate volunteers.

Adventure games tell us stories, present us with puzzles to solve, and give us new worlds to explore that we could otherwise only imagine. We want to share our passion for such experiences not only with like-minded gamers, but also introduce others who aren't aware of adventure games to this genre we all hold so dear. We can’t do this without you, so please consider supporting us. Along with the satisfaction of knowing that your pledge is making an important difference to the welfare of the site, we’ll provide a number of tangible benefits offered only to those making a monthly commitment, which we believe will make your Adventure Gamers experience even more rewarding.

We don’t like asking for money, and we wish we could go on being completely self-sufficient, but the time has come to admit that we can’t. Hopefully our reputation of honesty and integrity speaks for itself, but rest assured that every dollar donated will be channeled into the operation and advancement of the site, a goal that benefits everyone.

We truly believe that a healthy Adventure Gamers contributes to a healthy adventure genre. The success of any niche market is dependent on a dedicated grassroots community keeping the faith. We’ve been doing just that for nearly two decades now, and during that time the genre has emerged from its oft-proclaimed “death” throes to being flourishing at an unprecedented level of independent development. With your help, we can continue to lead the way in providing ongoing coverage of this genre resurgence, but there’s only one way that can happen: together.
