My name is Arthur Mullen and my cat's name is Roly Poly. In my middle 30's, a lifelong Quake gamer, I have become intensely interested with who, what, when, where, why and how the vast and still expanding Quake universe came to be.

In the past few years, I have used the Internet Archive to collect a huge amount of original content from the late 90's, and reposted it on my Wordpress blog. Now I am excited to bring that content to life in YouTube videos. I am creating a new 20 minute (approx) video every week.

Not only do these formative stories risk being forgotten, I have a "Tom Hanks with WW2," sense of urgency about reaching out to the subjects while they are still able to tell their story.

Patreon is way for supporters to fund this work. I am currently helping take care of family, and do not have to pay rent. Right now, I have the opportunity to give my 100% to the project. Let's strike while the iron is hot... make hay while the sun is shining... Let's go!

Thank you for believing in me and please know that I would consider accepting your money a sacred honor, and I promise to push for my best creative work.

You are financially successful way beyond my own ability to imagine and are willing to support the production of Quake 2 gaming history videos with Major Funding. Well, for $100 a month, $1200 a year, I'm going to give you all I got. The bonus content, the title, "Quake God," collaborating on video subjects, you will have the power to choose one video subject a year, AND inserted into every video I will have created a special animation, PBS-style, that says your name preceded with, "Major Funding Provided By..."
