THIS PATREON WILL BE RESUMING IN MAY! CHARGES SHOULD RESUME IN JUNE.
WHO AM I?
Howdy folks, my name is Gene (GHostLPs on YouTube) and I record Let's Plays for the denizens of the internet. I've been partaking in this as a hobby since 2009; in the span of time between now and then, I've refined my skills at recording, editing, and producing video game-related videos a good deal.
Through all this time I've considered LPing to be nothing more than a passing hobby. However, recently, I've been thinking that I would like to make it something more than that. To do that, I'm reaching out to my viewership to give me a helping hand in reaching the next level of video output.
ABOUT MY CONTENT
I record and produce Let's Plays. A Let's Play (LP) is video of a person playing through a video game from start to finish with the express goal of providing entertainment or instruction to their viewers.
My regular LPs update three times a week (M/W/F) with a typical episode running between twenty and thirty minutes long. My content is generally what I would consider PG-13 (leaning R) in nature, mostly due to my having something of a potty mouth.
Above all else I value the thoughts of my viewership and I try my best to go out of my way to engage them at every opportunity. Whenever applicable I incorporate pertinent viewer comments into my videos; most often when my viewership notices something I don't and offer me assistance in play. Due to this style of community engagement, I tend to record videos at most a day before they are posted to YouTube for viewing. This has both a positive and a negative side effect. The positive side effect is that I can engage my viewers and incorporate their comments into my LPs. The negative side effect is that when Real Life™ throws a curve ball at me there are typically video delays.
I tend towards informative, (generally) intelligent, commentary where it is appropriate and typically ramble about random game-related things, or make terrible jokes, when it's not. My videos are aimed at people looking to have a good time, laugh, and possibly learning something new while watching someone play through a game that they may or may not be familiar with.
I've decided to turn to Patreon as a method for my more dedicated viewers to show their support towards my channel and the content I produce.
WHAT'S IN IT FOR YOU?
Aside from the warm fuzzy feelings you'll get from supporting someone with a genuine passion for the hobby, you'll also be directly influencing the quality of my videos! All support I receive on Patreon goes towards increasing the production qualities of the content that I produce. Not only that, but it also goes towards new games for me to play, new hardware for me to record with, new editing software, and a generally better experience for everyone watching. One of my primary goals of this Patreon campaign is to produce content that will be enjoyed by my entire viewer base.
THE GATED CONTENT PROMISE
Finally, I want to be completely clear that I hold a stance that there will be absolutely no gated content created only for Patreon supporters. Those who support me here will be doing so to the benefit of my viewership at large.
If you'd like to find out a bit more about me you can check out:
- My YouTube channel which houses all of the content that I've produced over the years.
- My website where I publish various blog posts pertaining to things of interest to me (LPing, game development, and so on).
- My Twitter account where you'll find me rambling about various things.
Thank you for checking out my Patreon campaign, until next time!
