My Story?
Tldr; I have been a game maker for 7 years and want a change

I dont know what all to put here so I am just going to speak and possibly kind of ramble. My name is DustyofPodunk and I have been making games and youtube videos since 2010.

For the past almost 8 years I have been trying to do things the “right” way. What I mean by that is making game prototypes then preparing pitch documents and then trying to find a publisher to fund the game like how a development bussiness is “suppose” to be run.


The only problem is I had no success at this I was able to get some contract work here and there but none of my own stuff was getting of the ground this way. I had always labeled by self as “independent not indie”, I use to say “I am not one of those artist developers trying to make something strange for the sake of it I was going to make things that were going to get published and have the market behind them and blah blah blah”


I look back and shutter at my thinking over that time. It was dishonest not just to the games I could have been making but the heart of why I make games. Around this same time I was running a youtube channel that never really got off the ground. With the gift of hindsight I can see where I went wrong in both respects I wasnt making things that had my heart in them, I was making things for someone else I was making them for me.

Why Am I Patreon

Tldr; I need money to live and buy dog food AND keep making free content (games videos etc)

One core tenant has remained from my time trying to being a bussiness man my company Podunk Studioz first tagline was “Giving Gaming Back to Gamers”

I wanted to produce afforable games that were still of a high quality and that is still a want but rather then afforadable I want to release free games so that anyone of any budget has something to enjoy. I also want to produce more video seires, animations as well as stories and so much more.And that is where you lovely people come in

What are you supporting?

You will be supporting a three part beast

Games
the goal is to release a short game every month if possible there may be some months where I miss a deadline along the way or a game become to big for a single month. For an example of the scope of games I highly recommend checking out “The Gallows Frequency” I released in march.

Videos/Animations
The goal is to releasing several videos a week,
every two weeks I would want to release a new short animation fiting one of two categories
Postcard Stories
a postcard story is one short enough to fit on a postcard but that can be hopefully enjoyed again and again this series is meant to have a more serious tone and will be handling some darker subject matter.
Fanfic Frankenstiens
equal parts challenge as it is entertainment series Fanfic Frankenstiens will see me take two random characters from anime games etc and throw them into a random situation. I then have 15 mintues to right the scene and a week to animate it. This will be a much more comedy and absurdist focused series

every week I would want to release a new installment of a long form series
Podunk Radio(working title)
A planned long form series that is half motion comic and half radio play Podunk radio will tell longer stories over multiple parts every week

these new seires in addition to an update video on the progress of all projects and a game development behind the scenes style series for that months game very much in the vein of my “Devtastic voyage” series.

Stories
The reason I love games and videos is the stories and I always had wanted to be a writer so the goal here is to release a new short story every week.

Paintings
To start my work day I want to make a new painting based on community suggestions.
