About dot_lvl

Hi, everybody. I'm Erin, and for the past couple of years I've been running a variety stream on Twitch with a focus on retro games. I'm currently wrapping up my first big project—a personal challenge to beat a hundred games I'd never beaten before—but I've also done my share of challenge runs and gimmicky playthroughs.

Ever since Twitch rolled out the Affiliate program, I've received a frankly shocking amount of support from my viewers, but I've also had a surprising number of people approach me and say that they would prefer to support me through other means because Twitch's cut of total revenue (about 50%) is too big for their liking. I've been thinking of branching out into some other creative projects, like Youtube videos and small-scale game development, so I decided to launch this Patreon page for anyone who wants to support me in my creative endeavors.

Unfortunately, while I am excited about these creative projects, I recently sustained a rather serious work injury that's put me in a precarious financial position and forced me to sideline them for the time being. While the damage doesn't look to be permanent, I need to scale back my hours at my day job by quite a bit to give it time to heal. That means more time to stream, but it also means I'm in for a few lean months, so I would really appreciate any support you can send my way.

Any pledge of any amount at all makes you eligible to vote in patron-only game selection polls. Currently, this means you can vote on which JRPGs you'd like to see from a list I'm curating, but after I finally finish my 100 Game Challenge, I'll be putting a lot more game selections to a vote. You'll also gain access to a subscribers-only Discord channel, which, full disclosure, is not very active. But it's there!

Additionally, if you pledge at least $5 a month, you're eligible to submit game suggestions. As long as I have access to the game, it won't exacerbate my RSI, and it doesn't look to be wildly out of line with what I tend to stream, I'll add it to a pool of hour-long "pilot episodes" for potential future playthroughs that I'll be getting through in one monthly bonus Saturday stream.

If you're not familiar with my channel and you'd like to take a look at one of my stream archives, I think this blind playthrough of Momodora: Reverie Under the Moonlight on Hard mode gives you a good idea of what my streams are like.

Thanks for reading!
$170.90 of $200 per month
Once I reach $200 per month, I think I can commit to a second Patreon Pilot stream every month. I'll pick one Saturday out of the month, stream for a little longer than usual, and get through as many patron game nominations as I can.
