Hello, welcome, and I'm Nick Breckon. 

Idle Thumbs may be on indefinite hiatus, but I'm keeping a light on at twitch.tv/idlethumbs. It's been a constant source of stress-relieving comfort to maintain an attachment to the community that has enabled so much irreverent and meaningful entertainment in my life. 

With the launch of this Patreon, I'll be committing to the following stream schedule: 

  • Monday: Video games, 4-6pm PST
  • Tuesday: Video games, 4-6pm PST
  • Wednesday: Streaming with Janel, 8-10pm PST
  • Thursday: Video games, 4-6pm PST
  • Friday: Video games, 4-6pm PST
  • Sat/Sun/All other times: Occasional bonus streams!

So many games! So many times! But I can't do all those games and times without your help. A generous donation of some description would help me spend even more time and resources on the stream. 

What's in it for you? Why, one must merely glance toward the right side-bar of this internet web-site. Yes, that's it; gaze upon the many enticing rewards, patron. Send me your support, and I shall grant thee a single wish. Or all previous wishes, depending on the tier.

And then, if you would be so kind as to direct your attention to the left, one might also discover a ridiculous quest that I might embark upon -- if you dare to stoke the self-propagating fires of Far Cry 2 speedrunning within my malaria-stricken heart. 

Whether you contribute large or small, baby or big baby, I would greatly appreciate your help in keeping the Idle Thumbs community trucking along. As they say, sometimes caring -- and subscribing -- is its own reward...?
Tiers
Baby Gamers
$5 or more per month

Our Twitch chat has a good vibe going -- but when the stream ends, where do we go to talk about Subnautica tips and Zelda zips? Or the Animorphs canon, apparently?


At this tier you'll gain access to a backer-only Discord specifically for our streams. There you can help me chart my course through this video game gauntlet, and catch up with all our chat friends on a daily basis.  


I'll also give you a shout-out on the stream every month, just for being a buddy. (Note: Shout-outs will use your Discord handle, unless you would prefer a different name.) 

Includes Discord rewards
Big Babies
$15 or more per month

All previous rewards, PLUS: 


You'll be deemed a Very Important Person on the Discord -- specifically, you will be labeled a Big Baby -- and afforded the power to directly vote on future stream games/concepts in a Secret Discord Channel. 


You will also be eligible to become characters in any games that include created characters, or to join me when I play any co-op multiplayer games. 

Includes Discord rewards
Far Criers
$35 or more per month only 19 left

All previous rewards, PLUS: 


Once a month I will stream a game of your choice for at least one hour. If I like the game, I'll even play it longer than an hour! 


If you've ever wanted me to play that weird lore-explosion of an RPG from 1996 just to drive me crazy, this is your tier. 


Note: If I don't already have the game, I'll pick it up at no extra cost to you. If you subscribe to this tier one month and then lower your patronage, I will still honor your game choice for that month.

Includes Discord rewards
Lore Masters
$50 or more per month

All previous rewards, PLUS:


Writing portfolio review or writing feedback/editing for one hour a month from me, Nick Breckon, a Writer of Video Games.  Satisfaction guaranteed -- or your money back.  


Note: I'll likely go over an hour on this, but I'm technically capping it at an hour to reflect my inability to edit, say, an entire manuscript. 

Includes Discord rewards
The Couch Crew
$100 or more per month only 4 left

All previous rewards, PLUS:


In the event that I achieve my goal of securing a future GDQ slot, you will be invited to join my couch as I go for the gold. 


Note: You will be responsible for transportation/lodging/tickets to the GDQ event. 


Also note: If it's looking like I'll never make it to GDQ, I will donate your aggregated subscription dollars to a GDQ event/charity in your name, with a personal message of thanks from me.

Goals
$585 of $1,000 per month
Far Cry 2. The myth. The legend. The Ubisoft video game.

For a long time it seemed impossible. "Speedrun Far Cry 2? Who do you think you are? Some kind of video game Wizard?" they said to me in my nightmares. But now you have the power to bring me out of my terrible nights into dreams.

Yes, it's true. I want to speedrun Far Cry 2 on the biggest stage there is: the floor of an airport hotel ballroom. And I can't do it without your support.

Training for a speedrun is no easy task, which is why I'm asking you to support this Patreon. If I reach my goal, I will begin to Rocky my way toward a GDQ submission faster than you can say "clip that lol." That means at least three streams a week of dedicated Crying. 

It may take months. It may take years. But when I reach my goal, rest assured, it will be a glorious triumph of Man over Checkpoint. Truly a tale as old as time.

Join me on this journey and I will be proud to thank the Idle Thumbs community at a future GDQ event, and perhaps meet up with some Thumbs folks following my world-record run.
