And you are...?
My name is Kris Asick and I run a one-man-operation under the name of Pixelmusement. Although I'm a game designer at heart and have released a few freeware and non-free titles, lately I've been doing a web show entitled "Ancient DOS Games", where I take my analytical nature and apply it to all the old PC games few people play anymore, giving light to the old classics and even the games which probably should've stayed forgotten. Regardless of how good they are, I give every game a fair treatment, occasionally finding out interesting tid-bits in the process, and I also provide information on how to legally obtain these old games and get them working on modern computers. Below is an example of the kind of content I produce on ADG, specifically, Episode 119 - SimCity 2000:



So why are you on Patreon?
To put it simply: A number of fans of ADG have expressed the desire to support the show more directly, so after a lot of thought I ultimately decided to give Patreon a shot. Now, I should make something perfectly clear: Ancient DOS Games will ALWAYS be free to watch! The whole point of my being here on Patreon is for those of you who want to support the show beyond simply watching it. You don't have to be a Patron of the show to enjoy it! That said, being a Patron will give you some exclusive bonuses indicated at the bottom of the page as my way of saying thanks for being extra-awesome!

Don't you run ads on your show? Why bother with Patreon?
Ad revenue is a fickle thing and you'd be surprised how little a niché show such as mine makes. The ad revenue pays for my webhosting and occasionally I can get an extra DOS game or two from it, but that's about it. Patreon allows people interested in the show to give money directly towards its continued existence on a regular basis and helps to guarantee its future!

What do I get out of this?
At the bottom of the page are several exclusive rewards offered to anyone who pledges a certain amount per month. Even as little as $1 a month is enough to get something for your generosity! Plus, since this isn't very obvious allow me to express this plainly and simply: Every reward level includes ALL previous reward levels! This means if you pledge $16 a month, you also get the $1, $2, $4, $8 and $12 rewards! You also don't have to match the rewards exactly, as you can pledge any amount you want to really. You can even pledge nothing and continue to watch and enjoy the show as always! (But of course, then you wouldn't get any rewards.)

Wait... you just added $2 and $12 tiers but I'm not on them!
I'm going to make an effort to make sure people are aware of this change but to qualify for the new reward tiers if you do but aren't already set to them is to just edit your pledge and change the reward you want. That's all you gotta do! :)

Anything else I should know?
I do more than just produce ADG and make games. On my website is a special section dedicated to "Miscellaneous Stuff", which includes huge quantities of the music I've made, some custom levels for various games, and even a link to my DeviantArt page, which I will admit, I don't update very often at all, but you can check out some of the conceptual screenshots I've drawn up over the years along with some other random art-type stuff. Pledging any amount at all not only supports ADG and my making games, but absolutely everything else I do, so even if you're not specifically interested in ADG, you're still welcome to support me for any of the other things I work on!

Also, you'll probably be wanting a link to my website. Well, here you go: http://www.pixelships.com
Rewards
Common Item Tier

You'll be mentioned in the credits of an upcoming regular ADG Episode for becoming a new Patron! Your random chance of showing up in the credits again will be normal and your name will show up in white.
Enchanted Name Tier
$2 or more per month 16 patrons
Same as the $1 reward tier, except your chance to show up in the credits at random is doubled and your name shows up in blue!
Rare Stream Tier
$4 or more per month 15 patrons
At least once a month you'll be given advance notice and access to a private livestream I'll be hosting! Unlike the weekly public streams, these private streams are much more interactive and include games that can be played by virtually anyone in the chat! Your random chance of showing up in the credits of future ADG episodes will be tripled and your name will show up in green!
Unique Digger Tier
$8 or more per month 24 patrons
You'll automatically be on the dig team for Shovelware Diggers and will be able to directly select which folders are unearthed on the show! The folder lists can be found on the Pixelmusement website.

Super Knowledge Tier
$12 or more per month 7 patrons
Once at this reward tier or higher, you're no longer eligible to send in guesses for the next episode of ADG... because you'll not only get to know what episode's coming up well before anyone else does, but you'll also be able to submit questions and comments about the games being covered to be directly responded to in each episode! This is capped at three total per episode from everyone eligible so make sure you make your comments or questions thoughtful!
Mega Script Tier
$16 or more per month 2 patrons
Twice per year you'll be able to request and receive a signed copy of any script you want! You can also request an original print instead of a reprint, but those will be first-come first-serve.

Twice per year you'll be able to request some one-on-one voice chat time with me! We can choose an appropriate day and time by eMail and go from there! ;)
Goals
$555 of $2,048 per month
Yes, seriously. If by some miracle I ever get to this milestone, I'll be able to afford to buy and move into my own house once again!
