Hello folks, my name is Luke Kiedron, aka Retroguy.

All my life, I have been a passionate about fantasy, as a young boy growing up in the 80s, I lived for stories of knights, dragons and damsels in distress, I loved cartoons like Thundercats, Masters of the Universe, She-Ra and Transformers - regarding the latter, many of my happiest childhood memories were of playing with and constantly transforming my little robots.

Right, now if that didn't give you a severe case of brain rot from the perhaps excessive sugariness of it, I suppose you'd like to know why I'm here? Well, as you may have guessed, being born in the early 80s, I haven't been a kid for a long time, but the thoughts, fantasies and dreams I felt as a boy have never gone away. Realising that I was getting older, I wanted to see, just once, if I could take all those feelings, and turn them into something real, make my contribution to a world which provided me with so much pleasure.

This lead to me creating CelesSteel, an 80s style, potential future franchise designed and developed with a similar feel to those action cartoons from days gone by. Based in the post apocalyptic world of Gaiamor, the story centres around a group of 13 heroes and heroines, each based upon a sign of the Western Zodiac, who were blessed with magical powers by the Star Gods, and tasked with saving their world from the forces of darkness.



Whilst initially conceived as a just videogame, which myself and my team have been developing for the past two years, it quickly became apparent to me the potential for these characters and their stories to expand and become so much more. To this end, we now have a full colour debut comic in the pipeline (due for release early 2018), ideas for action figures, posters, T-Shirts and, at a long shot, a possible animated feature. However, these are all lofty goals, and I am well aware that the bar is set very high, and it will take much time, effort and of course finances for myself and the team to achieve these goals

So, now you know why I have created this Patreon account. Anyone who wishes to help us, we would certainly appreciate your support financially, and by helping us to bring views to this page so that we might properly get this show on the road. Your financial support will eventually allow us the additional funds we need to hire more staff, artists, writers, programmers, promoters, ever pushing the idea closer to full fruition. CelesSteel is a fully fledged passion project, and anyone who buys into this passion with us will see regular updates on both the game and comics progress, supporting artwork, character profiles, and any other miscellaneous snippets and curios we produce as we push to get this idea out there.

So, there you have it - who I am, who we are, what this is, and where we want to take it. If I've convinced you to support us, then join up and get pledging...and remember, whenever the darkness approaches...SHINE!
