Hi, I'm Nicky Case!  I tell stories about systems: I take the systems of the world around us – social, physical, political, economic, environmental systems – and explain them through the systems of games.  I make the complex simple, with the power of play!

no it's not "gamification".  eww.



I make a new interactive thing once every 3 to 4 months!  Here's a few of my better-known games & interactives: (click the images! these images don't look like links, but they are, indeed, links)




















I also draw comics and give talks and write short stories from time to time. And all of my work is open source/public domain, all thanks to your support on Patreon! Speaking of which...



Patreon is basically a way for you to throw some money at someone per month. I want my stuff to always be free and open source for everyone – but – a peep's gotta eat!

So, you can pledge to toss dosh my way every month. And in return, I'll give you sweet rewards, such as:



$1/month+: my heart! plus patreon-exclusive content
$2/month+: your name in the credits of my next project
$5/month+: i take your name, and use it to generate a Polygon
$10/month+: i draw you as your very own Peep! [LIMITED]

It's the least I could do to thank you. Seriously – without the support of all of you, my fans and friends, I couldn't do what I love!  (Or at least, I couldn't do it without taking on a lot of freelance contracts to ***shiver*** game-ify stuff.)

But in all seriousness – thank you. :)
