Hey there, my name is Retro and I'm a pixel artist and game developer. For the last 3 years I've been working on an adventure game called Pixel Art Academy, where you become an art student and learn how to draw. 

Pixel Art Academy started as a project for my Master's Degree in Education and is now my full-time job. By becoming my patron you are directly supporting the creation of the game.







To learn more about Pixel Art Academy, you can watch my YouTube series Pixel Art Academy 101, or read the FAQ.

Patreon rewards

Most of my posts are public, so if you just want to follow development, you can do so by clicking the follow button on top. By also becoming my patron you will get access to behind-the-scenes vlogs and rewards described below.

All the funds you contribute through Patreon are added to your game account so you can buy the game in the end ($10 for basic version or $20 for full version with the avatar editor). You can visit Retronator Store to learn more about different versions. A $3+ pledge will also give you the basic game for as long as you stay a patron.

(Note that the game is far from finished and development is long-term, with regular releases along the way. New features get first released to players with alpha access ($20 extra, for people who want to support the project the most) and when a full chapter of gameplay is completed, it becomes available to everyone.)

Moving on to higher tiers, a $5+ pledge will get you high-res versions of my posters (in case you wanted to print any for personal use), and a ton of wallpapers with my art.





At $10+ you'll get all previous rewards and also find your name in the description of videos and articles (or anything else I publish), although this barely expresses how much I appreciate your support. This goes the same for everyone, no matter how much you pledge. Thank you all so so much!

Goals
$803 of $1,100 per month
Independence! At this point I can afford a modest rent of $300, which means I have all the basics covered: health insurance, taxes, food, small expenses, and my own place to live (see previous goals as well). Now I can make Pixel Art Academy full-time just on Patreon income.
