Hi there! My name's Nick Keirle. I do the following things:

  • Make games! Working under the name Haruspex Games, I make text-based games, including....The Red Market - a narrative monster-hunting RPG where you can hunt, capture, buy, sell, (occasionally) romance, kill, cook, mourn, eat, and generally economically exploit all kinds of strange and deadly monsters. I've also made smaller games about dreams, overused RPG tropes, and cognitive dissonance in the face of fantasy crimes against humanity. Check them all out here.

  • Write blogs! My main two projects are the creatively titled Life in Japan (a blog about the lesser-explored aspects of Japan - check that out here), and RPG Autopsy (a game design blog about RPGs - check that out here).  I also write a dev log for The Red Market, and occasionally reviews of whichever books I've read that I think make me look smart.

I've got loads of plans for how I want to expand on both my game development and my blog writing. Anything I receive from Patreon will obviously go directly to that, and not to my various crippling vices.

Cheers!
Nick


*By the way! that the first 10 people to become my patrons (at any level) will be immortalised in my small, slow-development game One Thousand And One Nights. You can play the current build of that here, and find more info on the process here.*
