Grim Curio is creating Interactive & Traditional Fiction
0
patrons
$0
per month

Hello! I’m a writer, classicist, decaying spellbook, and developer trying to get by. If you dig my work and have funds to spare, you could give me a bit more peace of mind knowing that I might be able to cover small expenses or even save up a bit of money each month. You’ll also gain access to a variety of inane ravings, disturbing artwork, and strange tomes!


I make interactive narratives, games, artwork, traditional prose fiction, mistakes, and the occasional poem. My work is influenced by an interest in ritual, masks, autonomy, and the uncanny, and my writing has been published in sub-Q Magazine and L'Éphémère Review, in addition to tying for 20th place out of 77 entries in the 24th annual Interactive Fiction Competition. I’m also the host of the bi-annual MytholoJams on itch.io, which I created to bring game design and ancient history together for the enrichment of other developers.

I’ve published over 20 games since January 2016 and have several more in development. To get a feel for my work, I recommend checking out Devotionalia, Unmaking, Unmade, The Embrace, or Sôphrosunê, all of which are free to play.


If you’re about what I’m about and want to see more of it, you can support me for as little as $1/month. Becoming a patron gives you access to early content created as I work on upcoming projects, which are otherwise kept under wraps. All of my published and upcoming games remain free to play and download, but every month, patrons can gain exclusive access to content like WIPs, excerpts, design discussions, concept art, polls, and even playtesting opportunities.

If you would prefer to make a one-time donation of $3 or more, you can do so through ko-fi.

Goals
$0 of $50 per month
Life is a little bit less of a relentless struggle! I can stash some money away and have a little on hand in case I need it each month. With this goal reached, I'd feel comfortable covering my own website hosting and actually debuting my website.
