A BIG HELLO FROM THE OTHER SIDE OF THE PORTAL IN NEYYAH!


Hey guys! I am Aaron Gwynaire, CEO of Defy Reality Entertainment, based in Mandurah, Western Australia. Welcome to my Patreon page for Defy Reality Entertainment and a big welcome to the evolving mysterious world of Neyyah, my first-person point-and-click adventure puzzle game coming out on PC and other platforms down the track!

Defy Reality Entertainment is a gaming company creating first-person point-and-click adventure puzzle games in the style of Myst and Riven, Dark Fall, Skizm, Atlantis: the Lost Tales, and many more classic adventure games! Bringing back the slideshow style of point-and-click gameplay, my goal is to allow gamers to explore a world so immersive that it does in fact become YOUR world, just as it has become mine since developments started in July 2018. This involves a lot of work and energy, developing concept art, graphics, sound design, music composition, programming / construction, marketing and much more - all created by myself! 

The best part about all of this is that YOU can now be part of this journey and help support Neyyah to be part of YOUR reality :) I am really looking forward to connecting with my fans in a more in-depth way - finding out more about who you guys are, what your own creative en-devours may involve, sharing artwork with one another, advice on topics related to game development, art or pretty much ANYTHING and having the opportunity to receive merchandise that hasn't graced the halls of any social media platform!

Time to become part of a secret Neyyah group!

TAKING A LOOK BACK THROUGH THE OLD PORTAL ...

I started delving into the world of game design when I was around fourteen, learning a cool freeware 3D modelling software called Anim8or. Around the age of 19, I started designing a point and click PC game called ‘Portals: Journey to the Pearl Islands’. I never finished the project, and little did I know, even after moving across to the other side of the world to Australia in 2012 and spending a majority of the seven years since building up a music career and tuition business, that the core concept I had created for the game world of Portals would come back to life and sprout the roots for a much larger forest of life that very quickly became the world of Neyyah.

I was instantly inspired, touching base again with old interests, nostalgia of the old Myst series, and knew exactly what I wanted to produce. Through taking influences from the ‘new world’ around me - finding the cultural differences between England and Australia most interesting and drawing from both environments - and recreating the concept of Portals, I decided to embark on a project which would bring the old traditional ‘Myst-style’ point-and-click engine and learning Blender enabled me to bring my imagination to 'real' life (as close as possible anyway). I wanted the player to explore a world which was filled with mystery and wonder, but looked as realistic as the world we live in today and this was what fascinated me and interested me so many years ago when I started researching and learning about game design ... from every sound, every rendered image - through to the story line, engaging the player through environmentally based puzzles, using various skills of logic and observation, note-taking, while also delivering a game where the player has to learn about the world they have entered, to almost become part of it ...

It's been very exciting seeing the game evolve even more as the progress has continued since early July 2018.

Along with the loving support of my family, and a steadily growing fan-base of fellow Neyyah explorers, I have been designing all the graphics for the game, primarily focusing on this area of the development, while generating tests and soon to be releasing a new test-build playthrough on Youtube - which will feature my work undertaken so far this year on one of the islands of the game, including interactive areas; while also showcasing my involvement with sound design, animations and music ... 

My aim will be to bring to the computers of young and old audiences a game which does bring back memories of the old first-person point-and-click adventure puzzle games of the 1990's and 2000's, but also introduces a rarely used 'retro' style of gameplay, therefore inspiring others to be to design and develop their own point-and-click adventure games too!
... STEPPING THROUGH THE NEW PORTAL ...
                     And this is where YOU guys can come and join me on this adventure too!

I have decided to set up this patreon page to support my game Neyyah and my business Defy Reality Entertainment in reaching the various goals I have set out over the last year and getting the game to that point where others can play it and enjoy the game world just as much as I have enjoyed developing it!

I am also really excited to be able to share to those who wish to become part of the Neyyah patron family a whole bundle of cool exclusive content! This is an opportunity for me to connect with my fans and also for you guys to enjoy merchandise such as Neyyah-themed mouse pads, signed prints and much more ... EVEN BEFORE THE GAME IS OUT!! 

Your love, consideration and support is helping to breathe life to the game and it's about time I get to give that love back to you all :)
