HEY GUYS!

After a lot of thought and based on the recent feedback from you guys I've decided to launch a Patreon campaign and ask for your help.

But I didn't want to launch the campaign unless I could give you guys something back to reward your support and I think I've finally figured out how I can do that.

What Do I Need Your Help With?

As I'm sure you already know, I make gaming videos. I focus mainly on building simulation and survival games like Cities Skylines, SimCity, Planet Coaster, Banished, Don't Starve, etc although I do occasionally throw in other games like XCOM or Total War, just because I love playing them.

3 years ago I made my first gaming video. It was a 9 second long video of a city I made in SimCity in the shape of a man sitting on a toilet with the city sewerage system acting as his digestive tract .. my videos have come a long way over that last 3 years although, to be fair, my sense of humor hasn't ;)

Two years ago I decided that I loved what I was doing and I wanted it to be my full time job. There is simply nothing more rewarding than entertaining people and putting a smile on someone's face.

So why am I asking for help?

My channel is still relatively small and the simple fact is that I don't make enough money from Youtube to be able to carry on doing this full time. I'm still a little way away from being able to live on just what I make from YouTube and so I'm asking for help until I can make that happen.

Freedom and Quality

I want the freedom to create the best content possible without having to worry about how many views they will get or 'have I spent too much time on this video'.

If I'm building something difficult or complicated or researching new ideas, I want the freedom to be able to spend 2 days or 3 days, or whatever it takes, on a single video if that's whats needed to produce something really special.

I also want to keep improving the quality of my videos, in two ways:-

Firstly, by continuing to upgrade my audio and video equipment, which can be a very expensive business (just upgrading my video card would be $500+)

I would also like to reduce the amount of adverts shown on my channel specifically to remove any 'mid-roll' ads which I personally find annoying and I hate having to have them.

Rewarding Your Support

I often get sent free stuff by Developers and Publishers like game keys, etc.

From now on, that stuff will be given away randomly to my supporters. Every Patron will be eligible regardless of the amount they pledge.

I will also be setting goals that give you additional rewards when they are reached. Like setting up a voice server for all Patrons, again, regardless of the amount pledged.

Living The Dream

I LOVE making videos, I LOVE playing games and most of all I LOVE entertaining people. It's my passion and I'm sure if you've watched my videos you already know that. I want to carry on being a full time YouTuber. Can you help me to continue living my dream?

$50? .. you're a bonehead! Seriously, if you're thinking about donating $50 then I'd strongly suggest you split it and donate half to another content creator. There are plenty of other people out there who could also use your support. If anyone does actually pledge this amount then I'd be happy to have a 1 on 1 chat with you and see if there is a special reward we could work out for you :)


NEW REWARD - I've added a scrolling banner to the beginning of my videos where you can display your name, website, whatever you like!

I really never expected this goal to be reachable. I'll have to give some serious thought to what I could do for reaching this goal. The Livestream to celebrate this milestone should be a real party! :)
