Who Are We?


PixelFade Studio is an indie developer located in Toronto, Ontario.

To us, a visual novel is the best way of story-telling.

It's not because of the stylized artwork, the atmospheric music, fitting voice overs, immersive sound effect cues or simply the words you read. It's because all these pieces are just components for the strongest game engine: the players creative imagination.


Why Patreon?



As an indie studio, our biggest limiting factor when it comes to planning and creating games is available resources.

With your support on Patreon, we can create more assets (CG's, BG's, Sprites, music, SFX) for projects, implement advanced and emerging technologies (Live2D) and even have hand drawn animation sequences! Ultimately, your support gives us power so we can strive to exceed your expectations!



Patreon Rewards


Firstly, thank you for even considering to pledge! Our projects are a labor of love and to know people enjoy playing them as much as we enjoy making them is an amazing feeling. 

For the three Patreon tiers, we have examples of rewards you can expect from each. Hopefully one of them will be exactly what you are looking for!

** Please note for full game releases, you must be an active Patreon at the time of key distribution. We don't have the ability to provide keys retroactively or for ex-Patreons. Thank you for your understanding!




  PixelFader - LVL1 (PFL1)


Development Activity




With the first pledge tier, you'll get exclusive access to everything we create as soon as it's completed! That means you can preview new content as you wish rather than waiting between episodes. Additionally, you will receive full resolution artwork (4K for CG's), new songs in an uncompressed format, animations and much more!


Name In Credits



If you are an active Patreon when we add the credits section, your name (or alias) will be included as someone who helped make the project a reality!


Patreon Community Voting




We don't just say we are a community driven developer, we show it with our actions. ACE Academy was originally going to be just Kaori and Yuuna as romanceable options. We added a third (Valerie) from a stretch goal (even though it was not met at the time) because of the positive feedback regarding three options. People then asked for a Mayu route--we went back and rewrote two episodes to make the romance blossom naturally!

Patreon-Only Community Voting is when we are looking to make some decisions or have general ideas, you as a supporter will have a powerful voice in influencing what we ultimately do.



Patreon Discord Channels




Come hang out with the PixelFade Dev team as well as other Patreons supporters on our very own Discord channel. From discussions, waifu wars and idea bouncing all the way to playing party games together... there's always something going on! Please review below on linking you Patreon account with the Discord reward!:

  PixelFader - LVL2 (PFL2)


Full Version of Games




Upon completion of our projects, and as long as you are an active Patreon member, you will receive a digital key of any game we make!


Alpha Access




Already own the game? No problem! Being a PFL2 also gives you Alpha Access for our projects!


Work-In-Progress Activity

As we develop assets, we'll share the WIP versions with you! Since these are not finalized, any feedback you provide can directly influence what the finished version will be. You will be able to preview all assets from CG artworks all the way to musical tracks!






  PixelFader - LVL3 (PFL3)


Alternative Artwork


ACE Academy - Alternative CGs
Here's some examples of alternative CG sketches. As a PFL3, you'll have access to a lot more!




Crystalline - Unused Concept Artwork
Even though some assets don't make it to the final game, we'll share the concepts with you!




ACE Academy - VR Early Sketches
Before we came to the conclusion of Mecha's in ACE Academy, we were bouncing the idea of "War Games" but using virtual reality instead. Below you will find a sketch of what "VR Kaori" would have looked like during a "War Game".

These are the sort of developer insider information we'll be sharing with you. Think of it like an inside scoop to our creative process!



Bloopers and Dev Humor

Development has its own share of funny behind-the-scene moments! Of course we won't know when they'll happen, but we can guarantee you they'll be well worth it when they do!


The Questionable Kaori Kyaa~!
So this is Kaori going " Kyaa!" when you run her over with your bike. Normal right? Except one of the takes was this. I was not prepared.


The Valerie Trap Incident
From flirty... ...to trap. 



Nikki Goes to Japan
For episode 3, our Nikki VA (Tina) was moving to Japan. Let me stop you right there and say yes, the VA who plays Nikki went from North America to Japan. Yes, we appreciate the irony of that as well. Because her lines were going to be a little delayed, she sent us this as an apology:



This is literally something Nikki would do. We aren't sure if Tina acts as Nikki, or actually is Nikki.


PixelFade Future Projects




We won't be spilling the beans here! You can expect us us to keep PFL3 Patreons in the loop when it comes to future projects we are working on, what technologies were interested in using, what the stories/concepts/styles we want to explore...etc. You'll be part of our brainstorming and creative design process for whatever future endavours we embark on!
