Welcome to the Safe Haven Patreon!
I've created this Patreon to help raise funds to support a video game series I've been looking to make for a long time.

Too often are mental illnesses stigmatized and look down on in our society. A fair amount of the stigma comes from what little people know about the illnesses themselves. As a person living in today's day and age, I'm certain that you, yourself, have either battled mental illness, coped with someone else's battle, or at the very least know of someone who has faced these illnesses. From Depression, Anxiety, Bipolar Disorder, and Schizophrenia to PTSD, Eating Disorders, ADHD, and Split Personality Disorder, just to name a few.
Personally, I have had loved ones who have battled different disorders and have countless times heard of them getting beaten down due to their illnesses.

What I want to do is create a series of video games where each game has to do with different mental illnesses, but in a subversive sort of manner. Each game will be outwardly a "horror" game, where you are constantly trying to get to the end of the game while facing the horrors and monsters that await you in each environment, so that anyone could pick it up and play without having the thought of it being a game about mental illness. But through use of technology and the immersion of video games, I want to be able to shed a light on how it feels to battle these illnesses on a day to day basis, and ways you can help those who do.

Any patronage is greatly appreciated and will help me help others!
