Enter the world of survival horror!

Thank you for visiting the Patreon! We’ve launched this campaign to ask you guys, our beloved (and creepy) audience, to support us so that we can continue to be your #1 destination for horror gaming coverage

As an independent gaming site with a niche focus, we've regularly faced financial struggles and we need help. If you’ve been a follower of ours and want to support us, consider backing our Patreon today with whatever you can comfortably afford. You'll get a bunch of fun rewards, from exclusive content to an ad-free browsing experience! Check the sidebar! = >

Who We Are
Founded in September 2000 as Resident Evil Horror, we began this journey as one of the internet’s most popular Resident Evil fansites. In 2009, we became Rely on Horror, a horror gaming site with coverage that *you* can rely on. We’re aware that sounds a little cheesy, but what’s survival horror without a little cheese?

Our passion for the horror genre has led to the creation of tons of varied content. We've talked with some of the leading talents behind games in the horror genre - Thomas Grip, Dan Pinchbeck, Sam Barlow, Jeremy Blaustein and more! In addition to our regularly updated homepage, we have the Whispers in the Dark podcast, weekly Twitch streams and the Rely On Horror Show on Youtube!

Why Patreon?

Quite simply, the ad-supported website model isn’t as rewarding as you may think. Despite our healthy growth and sizeable following (which we’re very proud of), makes little more than enough money to pay server costs depending on the month. We’ve been able to compensate our writers, but it’s not much -- and we want to give back more than just “exposure”. With your help, we want to achieve the following:

  • Keep our site online
  • Afford to grow the site by producing fun additional content
  • Financially support our team

We have Goals for $200 a month, $400 a month, and $500 a month to start. If we reach our first goal, we will be able to begin paying a flat rate per contribution to the site in addition to our existing pay-per-view (a rate tied to every 1000 views), and a senior staff salary (~50% of Patreon funds split among several senior staff members). Every dollar will help us reach these Goals. Every dollar helps ensure we're here to stay.

tl:dr - If you're a reader of Rely on Horror, your financial support is needed!

Many of us have been doing this for years, and while it’s been fun, it’s not the most manageable thing with day jobs, school, and for some us, kids. We also want your support to directly lead to new content that you’ll enjoy - by enabling us to purchase more games to cover, help us attend tradeshows and afford new equipment/software. Additional funds beyond our goals will also help us keep the lights on worry free (well, maybe off, but like in the fun and scary way).

$105 of $200 per month

This covers our typical site upkeep costs and allows us to pay our contributors per post made to the site (in addition to pay based on post performance [views])! Want to support our writers? Help us reach this first goal!
