I'm trying out a new Patreon-generated project called Pol-Apo, about a guy trying to survive in the polar apocalypse. Patrons at the $5 tier and above can suggest actions for the character to preform, ways to progress the storyline, and stupid stuff that may or may not prove incredibly disastrous for our chilly hero. This is an experimental comic along the lines of Ruby Quest and Problem Sleuth. It might be cool and work really well, it might not! But I hope you guys are as excited to try it out as I am!
Here's how it will work:
- The comic will be hosted on a password-protected Tumblr blog.
- Patrons at the $5 tier and above will get a new password to the blog every month their pledge remains active, and be able to suggest ways to move the story forward.
- I'll select the best/funniest/most intriguing suggestion to serve as my prompt for the next update.
- I'll try to update three or four times a week, so you can check back to see new updates and suggest new prompts throughout the week.
- At the end of every month, I'll collect that month's updates and put them together for the public to see.
In short, patrons will have a direct impact on how the story progresses, and then the public will see what happened a little later!
I'm very excited to get things started, and I'll be making a post for the $5+ tiers in just a few minutes with the blog url and this month's password!
