Hyperventila

Hi! Welcome to my Patreon page. I am the developer working on Hyperventila, a narrative driven space RPG. I've been working on this game for the past nine months and I have now started a Patreon to continue funding my project so I can keep working on Hyperventila full time.

What is Hyperventila?

A narrative rich open world science fiction game, driven by exploration.
You will take on the role of a starship captain thrown into an extraordinary situation.
When four time travelers mysteriously appear on your ship, they are just as confused as you are. You can help them or use them. One thing is certain, their knowledge and power will allow you to shape and reshape the face of the Hyperventila galaxy.

  • Pilot your own starship(s)

  • Explore space stations and planets

  • Use this power for good... or evil

  • A whole galaxy at your mercy


These initial events will put you at the center of a political power struggle. You hold the key to the galaxy's future.
Complete freedom to choose the galaxy's fate as you conquer, discuss or trade your way to greater influence.

This individual narrative will be powered by my own writing. The main storyline and sidequests should resonate with fans of the works of Douglass Adams and Terry Pratchett.

The art style of the game will be that of classic science fiction, taking inspiration from movies such as Alien, Battlestar Galactica (the original) and Star Wars (also the original).

Hyperventila will come with an editor for those interested in modding the game


Where am I now?

In London, the UK.

Oh, you mean at which stage of development. Over these past nine months I have been in pre-production, developing the core functionality of the game world and seeing what is possible to make for me as a single developer.

Now that I'm getting out of pre-production it is important that I have the time and financial security to keep developing Hyperventila over the course of the production period up until release.

That is why I created this Patreon.


Interior decorating takes time

What is in it for you? Why Patreon?

I won't lie, I don't have any fancy merchandise like keyrings or bobble heads but this is and opportunity to support development of a game that wants video games to stay creative and true, a genuinely unique game that will appeal to people who yearn for story driven experiences in an industry where "everything is procedural" and "live services" are becoming the norm.

So why Patreon and not Kickstarter or Indiegogo? I want my supporters to be able to cash out at any time if they feel like development is not going the way they please. I also intend to keep writing and developing new content for Hyperventila after the game has been released and if this Patreon and the game sales manage to support me, all those future updates and expansions will off course be free.

If you want to be part of this, supporting development, then I humbly ask for you to take a look at the support options available here on this page.

Even if you do not wish to give money to this game while it is in development you can still support the game by sharing a link to this page and telling all your friends about Hyperventila: The Game!

Thank you for your support!
