Hi! I'm Nick Ver Voort. I'm a programmer, artist, musician, and currently developing the adventure platformer game Song of Asirra

What is Song of Asirra?
Song of Asirra is an Adventure-Platformer game, set in the fantasy world of Asirra. You play as Elia, a healer's apprentice. Her peaceful life is upended when her brother is attacked by mysterious cultists and infected with an ancient plague!
In Song of Asirra you will explore a large interconnected world, conquer ancient temples full of monsters and traps, gather materials to cast powerful magic spells, and more. A large cast of colorful characters will help and hinder you as they go about their daily lives with a real-time day/night cycle system. Unravel the mysteries of the past and present, and recreate the lost cure to save your brother's life!

Why Patreon?
Making a video game takes time and patience. As of now, Song of Asirra is entirely my personal project, meaning I am doing all of the art, music, design, code, marketing, and more. There are many different options for crowdfunding a project like but I liked the idea of Patreon as a small-scale month-to-month model. The continued donations from my amazing patrons keep me inspired to create day after day and to make sure that I am delivering something that people will be excited about.

What benefits do patrons get?
Patrons will get access to weekly check-ins, as well as art and 
music that I create for the game. The Asirran tier also gets access to playable demos of the game, and the Healer tier gets to occasionally help with creative decisions. Check the reward tier lists on the right side of the page for the full information

Demos!
The Asirran tier of patrons get access to playable demos of the game! Because these are released infrequently I'll list them here for easy access:

Demo 1 - The first hands-on playable demo of the game. You will explore Lillipet Village, meet some of the villagers, and test out the spellcrafting system. Contains 10 to 15 minutes worth of content.
Demo 2 - A combat and platforming trial, showcasing entirely redone graphics, sound, and physics. Fight multiple types of enemies and work your way to the top to earn your freedom.

I want to ask you something!
I am available to talk about any and everything about Song of Asirra. Please get in touch with me either on Twitter (@nickavv) or on this Patreon's community page.

Thanks for your time!
