BitBeamCannon

is creating retro arcade and console style video games

My goal is to make high quality retro video games that make you feel like you just woke up in an alternate reality where all the triple-A game studios of the 8 and 16 bit era had created great franchises you've not yet seen or played.

I'm working on several projects with other professionals. One will run on modern systems but is made to graphically mimic an 8 bit NES, and the other projects will run on actual classic Amiga computers as well as modern systems through emulation.

I'm also creating pixel art tutorials and feed-back videos and live-streams to help others improve the visual quality of their game projects and art portfolios.

Several projects are already in the works, being co-created with other professional game developers and teams with a proven track record of creating finished games for their respective platforms.

Thanks very much for your support and feedback.

$2 or more per month

Your support will be greatly appreciated, and will help in the creation of our game projects and video content. It will also allow us to make more tutorials and live-streams designed to entertain and also inspire and empower other potential retro game creators.


  • Your name will appear on a "thank you" supporters page at BitBeamCannon.com and in the closing credits in the majority of pixel art and game creation related videos for the duration that you are a patron.
  • You'll have special access to at least one private video per month which will cover future plans, projects, and progress not yet available to the general public.


PAYMENT NOTE: PayPal is preferred due to high fees for credit card payments. 

Pixel Pusher
$5 or more per month

Your generous patronage is allowing more time and energy per month to be spent on making our games and video content.

  • You get the benefits from the previous tier.
  • Your name will be listed slightly larger than lower tier supporters everywhere they are listed.
  • Your name will be listed under a "special thanks" list in the credits in any first party BitBeamCannon game that is completed and released during the period of your patronage.
  • For each month you're an active patron of this tier you'll earn 2 dollars credit towards acquiring the download version of any of our first party products. (Either the Steam version or through our online store at bitbeamcannon.com)


PAYMENT NOTE: PayPal is preferred due to high fees for credit card payments.  

Sub Boss
$10 or more per month

Your generous patronage earns our eternal gratitude, as well as getting you early access to play and test our game projects as they develop.

  • You get the benefits from both previous tiers.
  • Special access to preview builds of our first party WIP game projects at least 1 week before we release the same or a similar build to the general public. (You'll be among the first to be able to provide valued feedback on the latest build of our games as they progress.)
  • For each month you're an active patron of this tier you'll earn 6 dollars credit towards acquiring the download version of any of our first party products. (Either the Steam version or through our online store at bitbeamcannon.com) 
  • You have access to BitBeamCannon's private Discord text chat channel. This is the only authorized place to discuss the privileged information and game builds you'll have access to before the general public does. 
Includes Discord rewards
Mid Boss
$25 or more per month

In addition to all rewards from the lower tiers you get our eternal and undying gratitude, and:

  • For every month you're an active patron at this tier you get 8 dollars credit towards the download version of any of our games once they are completed (instead of 2 or 4 dollars credit per month).
  • You get a different signed, limited edition print of promotional, concept, or fine art mailed to you every 3 months during your active patronage at this tier or higher.



Includes Discord rewards
Final Boss
$650 or more per month only 5 left

In addition to all rewards from the lower tiers you get our eternal and undying gratitude and:

  • You get an original fine art painting (acrylic on canvas). Patrons of this tier will be able to choose which painting they'd like from the 5 available on a first come first serve basis. 
  • You will also get the download version of every first party BitBeamCannon game that is completed.  (Even if you only make one payment at this tier and then switch to a lower tier thereafter).


After your first payment is cleared you can choose your painting and switch yourself down to any lower tier you'd like, unless you want to continue with your extremely generous patronage, but with the understanding that you would not gain additional fine art paintings unless there are still some remaining (unclaimed by other Final Boss level patrons). 

You can see the 5 paintings to choose from here: https://youtu.be/26r5Af1z48g

IMPORTANT: This tier is for people who live in a region that can have relatively large packages mailed to from France at a shipping cost of 100 dollars or less. If shipping would cost more than 100 dollars then the patron would need to pay the additional cost beyond 100 dollars.

Goals
$25 of $250 per month
At $250 per month I'll be able to do at least one live-stream per week which would recap my general progress on the projects, typically discussing the projects and future plans with a guest. Some live-streams would also feature me working in real time on art, code, or sound effects for the projects.
