[ INTRODUCTION ]

Hello.

I'm Architect.

I like writing up stories about darkness and debauchery in my spare time.

Stories that, I think, would make a rather nice adult game.

But I personally think writing alone is not alone. You see, I have a very clear picture in my head regarding the perfect adult game. It would be a combination of solid writing, high-quality artwork, and kinky gameplay specifically designed to complement the erotic content.

If that sounds like something you'd be into, then without any further ado, please check out some of the games that my team and I have been working on, showcased below!

[ OUR WORK ]



CLAIRE'S QUEST is a dark fantasy adventure game set in a fictional world reminiscent of the early Renaissance. The game was built using RPG Maker MV, but unlike the majority of RPG Maker games out there, the game is totally devoid of combat. Gameplay instead revolves around dialogue, exploration, and puzzle-solving. There is heavy emphasis on story and lore as well.

You play as the titular Claire, a desperate refugee fleeing an invasion of her homeland that has stripped her of everything. Thrust into a world without innocence, filled with all manner of perils and the very worst of humanity, Claire seems doomed to meet with a grim end. As the player, will you help Claire to defy the odds, or have her succumb to a dread fate?

With your choices, you can decide the outcome of Claire's Quest.

OVERGROWN: GENESIS (formerly SEX ZOMBIE) 
 is a survival horror action-adventure game strongly inspired by The Last of Us. Although made in RPG Maker, Overgrown: Genesis does not rely on traditional turn-based RPG combat, and instead features a real-time combat system built from the ground up.

This game is set in a post-apocalyptic modern world vaguely reminiscent of the USA. You take the role of a survivor named Juno, and navigate between a failing human society cloistered in fortified sanctuaries and an outside world ravaged by the infection and all the monstrosities that brings with it.

[ ABOUT US ]

Let me start by telling you a bit about myself. You see, I work as a designer and planner in the AAA video games industry. However, while I enjoy writing tremendously, when working on 'mainstream' games you often need to tiptoe around controversial themes, such as war and its associated perils.



This is because I need to meet standards set by groups like the ESRB. As a result, at times I feel like censorship laws have completely gelded my creativity. It's not uncommon for me to get weeks of work flushed down the drain because it suddenly "doesn't fit the direction anymore".

So while I love what I do, having your work constantly watered down or outright scrapped can be pretty depressing. 



As my rejected ideas piled up, I found myself accumulating this huge amount of 'unpublishable' material. Rather than discard them, I instead used them to create these dark settings and storylines that would never see the light of day in the mainstream gaming industry.

Just as I was wondering what to do with my work, Patreon came along, and with it came the rise of the western adult game industry. 

It was then that I realized - I don't have to publish in the mainstream! I could publish these ideas in the form of adult games, by using Patreon as both a publishing platform and a fundraising medium with which I could hire production staff!

With that in mind, I setup this Patreon page, and from the funding I received, I begun building a team of very talented people. And so, the Dystopian Project was born!

[ BECOMING A PATRON! ]


So, why should you fund our work? 

For starters, I'd like to think that if you played our work, and enjoyed it - you wouldn't mind contributing a bit to my production costs! 

You see, I'm a writer. Simple as that. I'm no artist, and certainly no programmer. But as I mentioned before, writing alone isn't enough to make the perfect adult game.

As such, to create a quality product, I need to hire skilled artists, programmers, and other creative talents to devote their time to work on the Dystopian Project. That is where you come in!

By pledging to the Dystopian Project and becoming a patron, you allow me to pay for their services, thereby directly contributing to the continued production and perfection of the games I work on!

If you are new to Patreon, please note that pledges are NOT a one-time donation. When you make a pledge and become a patron, you're basically committing to pay an amount of your choosing every month!

Now if you'd like to support us, our sincere thanks! But first, you should know that we don't do the whole "exclusive content" thing for our patrons. We want our all our work to be free-to-play. There are no demo versions. There are no members-only expansion packs. All our work will eventually be released to the public - 100% free! 

So what do you get if you become our patron, if you get to play for free in the end anyway? Well, there's a few things!

Firstly, all patrons will get early access to our work, meaning they get to play everything that we create some time ahead of the public release! 

Secondly, all patrons get the right to vote on the development process and participate in polls that determine future gameplay content!

And finally, at different pledge levels, patrons also get access to a wide variety of bonus goodies, such as art packs, cosplay collabs, and more!

If you pledge, do note that Patreon will charge you upfront, and then subsequently charge you at the start of every month! For that reason, I recommend that you do not pledge near the end of the month! 

Can't afford to pledge? No problem! Money has never been the goal, and I've always intended for our games to be 100% free, and be available to as many people who want to play as possible.

If you want to contribute but can't do so fiscally, please know that just by playing our games, giving feedback, or even reporting finding any bugs/glitches you stumble upon, you're already helping us out tremendously!

For that reason, nearly all our Patreon posts are public, so feel free to drop a comment at any time!
