Hi, I'm Jeremy Parish, and I've been working in the trenches of the games press since 2003 for sites like 1UP.com and USgamer.net. What most interests me about games is their history, and there's really not much place for content about old games on "mainstream" gaming sites. That's what this Patreon campaign is for! 

Along with the Retronauts venture, projects like Game Boy Works and NES Works aim to dig into the history of video games on a granular level: Exploring the broader context of their creation and learning more about the studios behind them. Hopefully you'll agree the depth and substance of my work merits funding!

If you enjoy these video ventures, I hope you'll consider supporting them. Tracking down complete-in-box vintage games costs time and money, and my dream is to be able to be able to pursue these history-centered projects full-time. The Donkey Kong Jr. Math video I've posted here is a perfect example of what I hope to accomplish: In-depth examinations of games, however inconsequential or slight, that capture them in the best possible fidelity, show off their original packaging, and explore the circumstances of their creation in-depth. Thanks for your support!
Tiers
Early video access
$2 or more per month 290 patrons
For $2, you'll become the recipient of both my gratitude and a chance to check out these video projects days ahead of the rest of the world. Be the first to learn more about obscure Game Boy releases no one else cares about!
PDF access
$6 or more per month 162 patrons
You'll get early links to videos, plus regular book productions (Game Boy/NES/Super NES Works/etc.) in PDF format before the books go up for general sale. You'll also receive medium-resolution versions of my Cart-ography maps as they're completed!
Print fan
$16 or more per month 7 patrons
Get early access, PDF books, plus those same book productions in a black-and-white paperback format before they go up for sale at Amazon. Estimated frequency is one book every 6 months.
Print lover
$28 or more per month 14 patrons
At this level, you'll get all that stuff, but your copy of the books will be in color. Fancy color! And you'll get to read them before they go up for general sale at Amazon.
Cartographers guild
$50 or more per month 1 of 5 patrons
All the perks of the Print lover tier, plus you get to pick the subject of a Cart-ography stream series once every four months. (Subject to approval, of course!) AND you get a poster-sized, hand-drawn version of the final map.
Super Patron
$50 or more per month 2 of 5 patrons
All the stuff of the other tiers is included here, but also, YOU get to pick the topic for one video (outside the standard topic cycle) once every four months. If I have the means to make a video about it, you have the power to demand it!
Goals
$2,225 of $3,000 per month
Two weekly video productions from my ongoing series (Game Boy Works, NES Works, Super NES Works, etc.).
