Hi! I'm Takuma. I'm a nonbinary/genderfluid game designer, musician, writer, and artist. 

Welcome to where all of these things come together, No Road Home.

No Road Home is a project. It's a disconnect I've felt through most of my life. I'm a Japanese immigrant, and I've moved back and forth between both coasts of the US. Combine that with being a queer person of color, and I've often felt like an outsider with no real place or community to call home. I know I'm not alone in feeling like this sometimes. 

But there are these moments, in secret places with fast friends, where I've felt grounded. Even if only for an afternoon. No Road Home is how I try to capture these moments, in different forms, and share them with you all. Relive a memory of the aimless road with me, will you?

Where the Money Goes
I'm a full-time student and work part-time. Patreon money allows me to work less, and spend more time writing games, music, and essays. It may also go to upgrading audio gear, and paying for layout and art for my games. 

What You Get
For now, patrons get game design thoughts and drafts of work in progress. This includes different music projects, games in near-playable or revision status, and essays in revision. Higher tiers include covers and codes for paid-only games. Once we hit $50 a month, this will also include a short game every month!

Goals
$120 of $200 per month
I've been wanting to run an AP podcast of Stewpot for a while. I also want to pay my guests. The plan is to have me and 1 or 2 other people on the podcast each episode to do 1 or 2 of the minigames, for a short episode run time of 30-60 minutes. The plan is to pay each guest $20 per hour session, so this goal plus proceeds from Stewpot after launch will hopefully give me the money to fund one season. Patrons will get early episodes!
