 [ INTRODUCTION ]

Hello.

I'm Architect.

I like writing stories about darkness, debauchery, and dystopia.

Stories that would make rather nice adult games, in my opinion.

But, I personally think writing alone is not enough. To me, the perfect adult game would be a solid combination of writing, high-quality artwork, and kinky gameplay specifically designed to complement the erotic content rather than detract from it.

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. 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 occasional puzzle-solving. There is particularly heavy emphasis on the story, and on the impact of the player's choices.

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 and the Resident Evil series. Although made in RPG Maker, Overgrown: Genesis does not rely on traditional turn-based RPG combat, and instead plays like a top-down 2D shooter.

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. Along the way, Juno might be able to chance upon the vital solution to ensure humanity's survival... Or become a major factor in mankind's demise.

[ 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 dark settings and storylines that would never see the light of day in the AAA 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!

[ WHY BECOME A PATRON? ]


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

You see, I'm a writer. That's all I am. I'm no artist, and certainly no programmer! But as I mentioned earlier, 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 becoming a patron, you allow me to pay for their services, thereby directly contributing to the continued production of the games the Dystopian Project works 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 at the start of every month.

For that reason, I recommend that you DO NOT pledge near the end of the month, and pledge only at the start of the month!


As a patron, you will gain exclusive early access to the games we produce, 30 days before they are released to the public. Every month, you'll also be able to vote on the direction of our production process and directly influence gameplay content. Finally, at the higher pledge tiers, you'll get all kinds of bonus goodies, such as art packs, cosplay collabs, and more!

[ FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS ]


Q: Can I still play your games if I am not a patron? If so, where do I find the download links? 
A: You can still play even if you are not a patron! Simply look for the latest public release post of the particular game you're seeking in the "Posts" section, and the download link will be embedded in that post!

Q: I pledged and became a patron - where are my rewards?
A: You should receive a Discord invitation link to the email address you registered your Patreon account with! That invite will let you join our Discord channel, where we keep the latest download links, among other things. If you did not receive a Discord invite, please send me a private message and I'll help you out ASAP! 

Q: I only like one of your games, and do not wish to support the other. Can I only pledge to one game?
A: Unfortunately, no! When you pledge, you are supporting the production of everything that the Dystopian Project works on.

So, if you enjoy my work, then here are some other creators I feel you should definitely check out:
