About

Who are you?
I am Dari, or scitydreamer, and I am a queer amateur indie dev and a student in journalism and media studies. I believe in games and I believe in writing and with their powers combined, I create nonsense stories in games and write about games!

Alright, what do you do?
I try to work on games and writing. I primarily work on a blog called Indie Hell Zone, dedicated to stuff that I find on itch.io, with posts ranging from "hey look at this thing" and actual reviews. I aim to update it twice a week, with various stuff I'm interested in. Why do I do this? I think talking about games is fun! Like, stuff like Hardcore Gaming 101, VGJunk and Boss Fight Books fascinates me, talking about these things. I want to talk about games too, but with a bigger indie focus, because I want to give more attention to the small stuff!

On the games side, I made a bunch of things of varying quality. I mainly prefer to work in RPG Maker, because I like RPGs and it's an accessible tool. I just sort of want to put together a world and tell a story and I'm not necessarily aiming for mechanical depth and really that's what a lot of people seem to prefer it as. However, I also dabble a bit in GameMaker and I want to learn how to use it some more so that I can make non-RPGs.

I kinda jump around when I'm working on things, unless it's a game jam thing that I feel pressured to finish. So, a lot of the things I'll put out are versions and demos, slowly building up to a final release, unless I feel that it'd be best to keep . My current project is Slimes, an RPG where you kill slimes. Nice and simple and nothing else.


Why have you made a Patreon?
I made this Patreon for two reasons. One is that I worry about the future and job climate a lot, so it wouldn't hurt to have some kind of income. Secondly, I feel motivated to stay focused on my work if people give me money, because taking people's money without doing any work for it would make me feel really bad and I want ya'll to feel that you're putting your money in good hands.

Also hey, I want to help support other Patreons! Please, check out who I'm supporting and please do the same!

This page is looking a bit sparse, eh?
I'm just sort of testing the waters so far. I'm already kinda open about things I make, so there won't be development progress on stuff hidden behind paywalls. Maybe I'll add tiers based on services people would want?

As I've been doing this YIIK let's play, I've been thinking about doing Patreon benefits for video content, like deciding what kinda stuff I should cover. I'll think more about it when this dumb game is finished.
Goals
$21 of $30 per month
Because I hated watching Nostalgia Critic's The Wall and because I hate myself, I will watch his awful three hour long movie and write about it for money.
