My name is Ben. I'm an erotica writer and game maker. Primarily using Twine as a medium I've made a few gay-themed games, the most notable of which is Fuck That Guy and more recently God(s).

Why Patreon?

I want to be able to keep the bulk of all the content I create free for everyone, because I know what it's like to be broke and walled out of great stuff because creators need to eat. There's no perfect solution, but I think Patreon is a great first step. For a relatively low financial commitment you can help me make awesome stuff. I do have day job and a lot of that money goes back into my creations, but not having to rely on that income to produce content means that the process becomes a lot easier and less stressful. It gives me more time to create instead of having to pick up extra work just to fund new projects. 

Why should I lend my support? 

There are not a lot of people making exclusively or primarily gay content in games. There are a few notable and high quality examples, but we're a long way off from seeing anything near equal or even visible representation of work from a gay perspective. One of the most amazing things about Twine as a medium (though I'm not restricting myself to only working in Twine going forward) is that it has helped democratize how interactive stories are told, but there are still a lot of different types of stories that haven't been made yet. When it comes to gay content, especially erotic content, I think I have quite a bit to say and with your help I intend to say it loudly.

What do I get?

Aside from good feelings and an unrivaled sense of accomplishment? Everyone who donates at least $3 will get access to finished games and the first crack at work that's hot off the press at least a month before the general public. The payment structure is per month*, which means that you'll donate toward my ongoing projects every month, but you can set limits on your account as you see fit. You can also donate a few more bucks a month for extras like personalized fiction and your very own game written and designed by me.




Finally, thank you so much in advance for even considering supporting me and my work. Being able to create and disseminate these little projects means a lot to me. Your support makes all this possible.

-Ben.

*for the month of February, due to low progress from me on Patreon related projects, I've changed the payments structure to "per work" so that patrons won't be charged for work I didn't even do.

Micro Fiction! 

Get a 500 word story* for every month that you remain pledged at this level. The stories revolve around three or four word prompts. They're fun to write and you get see what your words conjure once they go through my brain-blender. Here are some (NSFW) examples: 

Derelict (Prompt: Starship/Amnesty/Cerulean)
Summer Games (Prompt: Satyr/Swain/Fruit)
Blessings (Prompt: Heavenly/Host/Orgy)

*Again, I'll keep the rights, but you can disseminate it as you see fit (as long as you attribute the work to me).

Your own personalized, badass game. 

We'll brainstorm together on a modest-sized game* (a maximum of 2500 words) that I will write and code for you. The resulting game can either be released into the wild or kept in a crystal jar on your counter, silently harboring your darkest impulses and keeping you young indefinitely. 

*I'll retain rights to the game. Also, this is a one-time deal, not an ongoing contract for multiple games.
Goals
$111 of $500 per creation
At this point I'll have enough of a base to grab a local PO Box and start sending out physical rewards* for backers. This will mean the addition of a new funding tier, but also occasional 'thank you' packages.

*Physical rewards will probably limited to backers in the US/Canada, but will evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Don't lose heart, worldly friends!
