About Ikonoclast


Hi there! I'm Alyssia Lain Farlight - or just Lain for short - a writer and game developer and I run the studio Ikonoclast where I'm hard at work on developing and writing games with a focus on providing better representation for girls like myself; i.e. games full of girls who love other girls! Games with diverse casts that are inclusive of all manner of LGBTQ people; gay/lesbian/bi/pan, trans, non-binary, asexual, aromantic? Queer fiction by queer creators! I want to be able to freely create games with all kinds of wonderful characters that represent people so often excluded from typical mainstream games~

I've always loved visual novels and interactive fiction, so when deciding what to work on with my own studio it was immediately obvious to me that I wanted to make those sorts of games. I also wanted to create games which would actually represent my own thoughts, feelings, and experiences and the things I view as important. I want to create works full of queer characters, of the emotional and interpersonal connections between them, and be able to draw from my own experiences and the world around us~


The reality is that right now I'm just a lone creator and both the costs and energy involved with maintaining life and being able to work on projects that feel meaningful to me and would represent the kinds of goals Ikonoclast represents are incredibly high. I am currently covering the expenses of the studio and projects out of pocket and so I rely on Patreon to offset some of those costs. I also have always wanted to grow Ikonoclast to be a larger entity than just myself. I want to be able to create more games, bring on board other creators, and work together to make larger and even more inclusive games~
Funds are used to cover living costs, software licenses, and with more support Ikonoclast would be able to hire artists, composers, and other collaborators to help make projects even higher quality than I'm currently able to manage on my own~


Since Ikonoclast currently is just myself I am working on a single project with a relatively small scope. Alongside this I am also going to be releasing asset packs for use with Unity to help further offset running costs of the studio, these will be comprised of development tools I use whilst building visual novels and small bundles of cool things I develop alongside the main project. I hope that this project can then allow us to expand and be able to work on something with a higher scope and a bigger development budget~
Needless to say, it is thanks to the support of all the wonderful patrons of Ikonoclast that I am able to work on the above project and the development tools that I'm using to build it. Every little bit of support means the world to me and every amount pledged helps us build a studio that can deliver on engaging narratives filled with queer characters and girls' love, so from the bottom of my heart I want to thank all of you who choose to support me in this venture~


All the love~
