Hey there! Welcome to Patreon. It's my page.

In some form or other, I've been making games since I was a kid. Coming up with rules for Playground LARPS, making point-and-click Adventures in Powerpoint, working on JRPGs About Magical Catboys... even coding Text Adventures on my graphing calculator, instead of paying attention in Calculus Class.

(Dang. Guess you didn't think math was useful for Game Dev, huh, Teen-Me?)

Anyway, enough people liked my stuff, and that helped convinced me to stick to it. I Taught Myself what I needed to know, and started Making More Games, more often. Interactive comics, game jam games, and little prototypes and experimental things here and there. In fact, I've heard there's A Bunch of Little Games I've made Right Over Here!

I've been lucky enough to be able to support myself, in part by doing contract work for other game developers. But The Dream has always been to make more Games Of My Own, make them Bigger, and maaaybe even Do It Full-Time. And, so long as I can meet my survival needs, I'd like to find ways for what I make to be Available to Everyone For Free, as often as possible.

So, if by chance you want to help me chase The Dream and all that... why not help me here? With your support, I can Spend Fewer Hours Not Making Games for you, and for everyone else. That way, Everybody gets something nice!

Also, if you'd like to support me in Other Ways, you can always:
★ ...play, rate, and share my games on itch.io,
★ ...buy me some tea through my Ko-fi,
★ ...follow me on Twitter,
★ ...and most importantly, Share Stuff With Your Friends!

I can now afford to eat, which is important to me! Fueled by your kindness, I can dedicate one week per month toward making bigger and better games for folks to enjoy, in place of other work.

I will also make an exclusive "Secret Patron Game", to thank everyone for their support! It will be very good, and have graphics and everything.
