About scitydreamer

Who are you?
I am Dari, or scitydreamer, and I am a queer amateur indie dev and a graduate 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 just delving into games is fascinating; you know, stuff like Hardcore Gaming 101, noclip documentaries and Boss Fight Books. 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.

I also have a Youtube channel where I do no commentary playthroughs of RPG Maker games. This mainly started because I decided to do a playthrough of YIIK: A Postmodern RPG and I decided that hey, why stop there? Why not do playthroughs of games that are actually good?

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 I Hate You, Please Suffer, a game about making rent through adventuring.


Why have you made a Patreon?
I made this Patreon for four 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.

The third reason? I hope to one day find enough success in my works that I don't need to

And the fourth is that toward the end of 2020, I've started accepting article pitches for Indie Hell Zone. Any money made on Patreon will help pay writers that contribute. For more information, check out the pitching page here.

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