Wait what's Patreon?Patreon is a monthly voluntary payment you make (as little as $1 helps!) and optionally you can get some nice rewards. It's a way to thank or encourage people to make more things without depending on ad money, sponsorships etc. It also helps me budget my time and spending, as I know roughly how much money I can expect from supporters every month.
Can't Use Patreon?You can also support me via PayPal or on Twitch.tv with Twitch Bits, your free monthly Amazon Prime Twitch subscription, or a manual $5 subscription! You can even shop on Humble Bundle using this link to support me too! Even just sharing my work or Patreon helps a lot even if you can't pay at all!
Cool Unique GamesIt's no secret that big games with huge marketing budgets get most of the attention in the gaming world, even in gaming-focused publications. Big expensive games are fun, but there's a lot of fantastic underrated stuff out there, and that's what I try to focus on.
On my channel and site you'll find a lot more of the outsider, niche, smaller, and otherwise unique and interesting games a lot of other sites will pass on. I try to keep my palette diverse and I hope you find my channels help diversify yours as well. These games may be more emotional, visually beautiful, avant garde, or maybe just hilarious, but I make sure every game I show is worth your time.
Games Criticism and GuidesI like to make life better for people. Since games and design are my passion, this means writing criticism intended both for gamers and game devs, critiquing both games and general game design. I also create in-depth guides for smaller games like Legend of Dark Witch 2, Axiom Verge, AbyssRium, Megadimension Neptunia V2. You wouldn't find a Prima Games guide for these, so I try to make sure my fellow players get the info they need.
My Tap Tap Fish: Abyssrium Hidden Fish guide in particular has been a lot of work, so I'm thankful for all the support people have given me for it!
Why Patreon?It turns out making videos for the internet is a lot of work! Essentially the more money I get for making videos, the more I can focus on doing the videos and purchasing better equipment, such as better capture cards, capture cards for handhelds, better mic, better PC in general.
I've been making videos for youtube for about 7 years now, and have been ad supported for a while, but ads are a very inconsistent (and, I'll admit, annoying) way to make money on Youtube. If I can get a more consistent income I can more properly budget my time and money for future video and review projects. Moonshot-tier, but if Patreon exceeds my expectations, I may even be able to ditch ads entirely or work on videos and games writing full time!
