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. There is no political message at all. 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 projects is Kiso Valley Diary (a blog about the strange, exciting, monkey-filled life in rural Japan - check that out here). I also occasionally write 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.

0 of 10 patrons
After I reach 10 patrons I'll begin proper work on 'One Thousand And One Nights' - a game about dreams.

Additionally, the first 10 patrons pledging at the Honorary Best Friend tier ($5) or higher will have a dream of their choice included in the game!
