Hello, friend!

My name is Mike Gale ( Disastercake ) and I'm an indie game developer creating RPGs for you!

My career as an indie game developer took off over 5 years ago after launching the world's first 3D J-RPG on Kickstarter.  I call it "Soul Saga" and it's inspired by great classics like...
  • Skies of Arcadia
  • Grandia
  • Breath of Fire
  • Final Fantasy
  • Suikoden



You're AMAZING!

My experience with crowdfunding has been  phenomenal.  Soul Saga's Kickstarter funds were almost entirely spent on paying talented artists from across the world to contribute to Soul Saga's beautiful aesthetic.  This gave many artists, animators, and composers a chance to be a part of something they could truly be proud of.

Soul Saga's success on Kickstarter also  changed the entire J-RPG market on the PC. Before Soul Saga's existence, the J-RPG options on PC were abysmal. Soul Saga inspired other indies to pursue their work and I've been told that Soul Saga was even referenced by popular Japanese game developers during their decisions to start porting games to the PC market. It was because of patrons, like you, supporting small developers, like me, that helped make that happen!

The results of Soul Saga's crowdfunding gave me fans, friends, and most importantly: a purpose in life... to create great games for you.

With your help, I can keep doing that!




FAQ

What games are you making?
I'm making two games at the moment, which are based in the same world:
  1. Soul Saga, a traditional J-RPG inspired by J-RPG classics.
  2. Guildborn, a guild management and fantasy-world simulator.

Is Soul Saga almost done?
It's getting close!  Soul Saga is a J-RPG: one of the most difficult genres to create well.  Set dressing, world building, level design, cutscenes, and event management are all laborious and time consuming processes.  I'm the only developer on Soul Saga and dedicated to doing the best I can with every aspect of the game.

You can find more regarding Soul Saga's exact development state on the 🗺️ public roadmap.

What happens when you finish Soul Saga?
Soul Saga will be released on  Steam Humble Bundle GOG and then ported to various consoles.  Once it's released, I'll work with you to come up with new rewards for the Patreon!

What about Guildborn?
I'm literally just starting Guildborn's development right now.  Guildborn will continue Soul Saga's rich world-building with your own story.  The goal is to create a fun game with high-replayability, meaningful choices, and diverse customization options.  I'll be bringing patrons (that's you!) along for the entire development process, starting from the initial game design docs!

Can I donate just once instead of monthly?
Sure!  You can use  Paypal for that.
Please note that Patreon rewards cannot be awarded through Paypal.
