Hello! My name is Gabriel, AKA Machinesbleedtoo. My pronouns are they/them. I am a game developer, writer, illustrator, and worldbuilder that makes monsters of both the literal and figurative kinds. I am most passionate about science and exploring the grey areas of every binary scale.
I am currently studying a Bachelor of computer science, majoring in cybersecurity and minoring in biomedical science. I also work in IT support!

Hyaline is the alien planet that all my projects take place on. It has been an ongoing worldbuilding effort for the better part of a decade, but the measurable work on the details began around 2014. You can read about the science behind the planet and other tidbits in a public patreon post here. My plan is to expand the world via numerous projects in various mediums, such as games, comics, art books and more.
CURRENT PROJECT LINEUP
A world guide called Art of an Alien Planet that introduces you to Hyaline and the setting of the game. It has a twitter tag for quick posts about progress & other information. It contains two short stories based on the below projects, alongside illustrations, concept art & more.
Status: in progress.
A symbiotic survival game simply titled 'Hyaline'. You can find more information about it on its website here. It has an internal release date but it is too early to make public promises yet.
Status: on hold.
A graphic novel called Nails & Teeth, set just before and expanding after the game. It follows the story of Yaminah Khaled, a detective on Earth tasked with solving a number of unusual murders.
Status: future project.
The money earned here helps pay my team and I for our work.
It's like a kickstarter but ongoing. You can pledge as much or as little as you like- you're not bound to the set tier amounts (although it influences which tiers you get rewards from). You can cancel, change your pledges and re-subscribe whenever, too! There are no contracts here.
I aim to upload content here once a week.
Any questions? Feel free to reach out to me at any of the above linked social media sites.
Thank you <3
