Fresh and shiny: Look at you
! The fact you are reading this is rather exciting and means you are looking around even before all the main fun options are in place. The ribbon hasn't even been removed yet-- in fact it has been layered on lock-down style so you'll have one heck of a time getting it unbowed.

You are here to possibly take the journey as an OG Indie Game Lover supporter. You have come when the thoughts are being tossed in willy nilly. You want to be "one of the cool kids that knew about the thing before there were more people knowing about the thing," but all joking aside at the end of the day we are all human and everyone has a story worth feeling cool for.

So I am ever so thankful that you are thinking about throwing some support out. Yes, really.

Stage one:
You are checking out this page during stage one which means it is the least fleshed out. Oh it is in a terrible state of random rambles and lacking graphics. But at the bare minimum the support you offer helps to motivate the more-than-full-time amount of hours (yes, really), that is spent working on Indie Game Lover each week as well as the general costs associated with such a task.

And that is just mentioning my never ending hours (Indie Game Lover, AKA Danelle AKA Kitty, but really I AM Indie Game Lover so don't bother me with human names as I spook easily). At the end of 2018 I pulled forth into the chaos my friend, Oliver, and he is very valued and does a lot of work too now.

Workaholics.

(Insert an important shout-out here for that amazing song used on Youtube that my other friend made).

So, I need you to believe me when I say that even one dollar matters. It screams that you care which helps when the mind goes into dark places, "does this all matter, who cares," the sad ghosts that nip at the feet. I'll fear not mentioning this is a thing as so many people walk through those kinds of Mind-Fields...see what I did there? Mine-D-yea ok, sure. Bad jokes. I walk with you.

Did I mention I also shop at the dollar store? Who doesn't? It is the best: I found a book on drawing manga the other day, and then one from my favorite author, and after that scored some nail polish in this bright shade (which I instantly regretted), and some pretzels, and and and...not even I actually like shopping (boring, could be doing Indie Game Lover work or gaming or deving) and this is very off topic! 

I am just trying to prove a point. Two points. One, you can actually trust me and two, everything matters. Unneeded proof ("but the label says $6," yes and the back says $25 but is still rings up as $1. :3):


Point is, Indie Game Lover is all about nurturing love and support and being amazed and inspired while showing all that through the things that are happening in indie games. This scene is filled with creatives that need to be seen. So. It. All. Matters.

The What:
Which brings this circle around to “the what” really it is that Indie Game Lover does and why it should matter to you? Did you know I started back in 2014? And have felt every emotion many times?

I mean, likely the fact you are here means you already have an idea of what is going on, but we strive to aid and support all those indie game sparkles as much as possible through various forms of articles, videos, social media, and handcrafted love.

We curate games from around the world that sample all the unique and special experiences that you can get from playing independently developed video games so that people can experience the same inspiration that we feel from  how much work goes into creating them .

Gaming is not a “one-stop-one-size-fits-all” stereotype; it can actually be anything you want it to be and indie games are the perfect sample of that concept. No matter how long you have been a gamer, no matter how skilled you are, it is never too late to frolic with the butterflies that are indie .

Example: my 61 year-old aunt recently got a laptop to try gaming for the first time and then upgraded that laptop when she discovered they didn’t sell her a gaming laptop. She was so first-time that she didn’t even know how to “WASD” to move, nor did she understand the concept of getting quests in more open arenas. None of that stopped her though and with the aid of my parents helping to teach her the ropes and sort tech problems, and her own testing and learning, she now has excitement upon returning home and firing up the computer to try various games. She’s gone from casual match-threes, into the puzzles of the Witness, and out to the intensity of 7 Days to Die and Animallica. Never too late.

So…
In this "OG" state, if you contribute while there isn't a "thing to get back" your contribution will add up and when the offerings become something a bit more fun, you will get whatever tier you hit without upgrading. Huh? So you subscribed for $5 and 3 months and then a $15 "real tier" is added you'll get whatever was on that tier for supporting early.

That is all I fully know right now. That and I have a lot of cool ideas but I am notorious for needing to get things perfect so am thus forcing myself to at least get things started in the meantime.

Brain: "Yuck...there are no graphics yet...and there was this field for a video..."
Brain two: "Oh stahp it you, you'll be fine."
Twitches.
