My name is Josh Giadrosich, known online as BikdipOnABus. I've been a Youtube Let's Player (someone who commentates over video games, basically) for a few years. I also stream similar content (on Twitch, under the name "Skrumpei"), usually for games where a more laid-back approach is preferable. If you've never seen my content before, a brief way to sum up my "style" is that I use dry and absurd humor, as well as personal experiences to give that extra touch. The thing that mainly sets me apart is that I'm less... loud than most other LPers. I don't use facecams, and I try not to pander towards a major demographic.

I have also made a few amateur games with the Zelda Classic engine, which have received generally positive reviews. They can be found on PureZC.net, under the titles "Bikdip's Adventure", "Bikdip's Adventure 2: Electric Boogaloo", and "Mitch". As of 2018, I am officially working on a new game: "Bikdip's Adventure 3: A Mitch in the Matrix". Work on it is very slow and sporadic, but I do like to share my progress with my patrons.

For a few years, I treated this account as a secondary job, and had a "if I earn this much, I'll make this many videos" approach to it. I've found that it's best to keep it as a hobby without a strict schedule, however, so think of it as a tip jar. There are still rewards for supporting me, but I will not be basing the amount of normal, free content that I produce off of the amount of money I make from this.

If you support me in a tier that has any kind of personalized reward, particularly the cumulative one explained in the $2 "Bargo" section, be sure to contact me via PM to let me know the specifics of what you want to do. That is also how I will provide links to the private discord channel explained in the $10 "Junspinar" section.
Tiers

From March 2017 onwards, every $100 donated (in total, not looking at specific payment levels per month) will get you the ability to co-commentate with me in a one-hour video to be posted on my Youtube channel. The subject of the video is of your own choosing.

In addition to the cumulative reward (see the "Bargo" $2 tier), you will have your name listed as an official supporter during a Youtube video posted early the following month.
Junspinar

Rewards from the lower tiers still apply, plus you will be able to view an additional private video I release once per week. The subject of this videos will be decided by the patrons in this tier and higher (A discord chat will be provided via PM).


In total: 

- Cumulative reward (See $2 "Bargo" tier for details)

Any tiers above the $10 one offer no additional benefits beyond reaching the cumulative reward quicker.


Prior to April 2018, donating to this tier at least once made you eligible to get a postcard with a personalized message and drawing. This reward has been dropped, but if you qualified for one in the past and never received it, feel free to send me a PM and I'll take care of it.

Prior to April 2018, donating to this tier at least once made you eligible to get a custom cross-stitch of a sprite of your choosing. This reward has been dropped, but if you qualified for one in the past and never received it, feel free to send me a PM and I'll take care of it.

This tier used to qualify you for the postcard and cross-stitch mentioned in the $20 and $30 tiers, but as explained in those sections, I am no longer taking new requests for those unless you qualified for one prior to April 2018 and never received it.

Goals
$600 – reached! per month
The $600 "goal" is listed here simply because that's around what I've been making monthly for the past couple years. Surpassing this goal doesn't necessarily grant any more content (though if a drastic increase is seen I may change my mind on that). And by the same token, dipping below it doesn't mean I'll make less unless I run into unforeseen problems financially and don't have enough free time to make videos.

My schedule for making videos and doing streams is mostly based on my work schedule, and is always subject to change. Currently, my goal is to release one public video and one private video (available to $10 tier patrons and above) per week, on average. I will always hold myself to the four private videos per month, as those are being paid for. The public ones may occasionally break schedule if I have too much else going on, but I don't want this to be a regular occurance.

I am also very slowly working on Bikdip's Adventure 3, but I don't have anything approaching an estimated release date for that at this time, and I expect it to take several years to finish, assuming I finish it at all. This is purely a passion project of mine, and any progress made on it will be done independently of the amount of money pledged. It is a fan game using assets from the Zelda series, among others, so even if I wanted to accept donations towards it, legally I would not be able to.
