About

Hi, my name is Freya Campbell, a writer, musician, and gamedev. You may know me by my twitter handle @spdrcstl.

For a little over 3 years I've been making narrative games under the title of Communist Sister Interactive. In that time I've released over 20 games for free, 5 of which have been exhibited in places like Wordplay, AdventureX, or the National Videogame Museum in Sheffield. They are usually:

  • science fiction, horror, &/or romance
  • close to 100% LGBTQ characters
  • free/PWYW with low tech requirements
  • liable to make players keysmash due to feelings

I'm currently working on a larger project, Superlunary, that ticks all those boxes: a slow, queer episodic space opera about demilitarisation, rebuilding society after war, and finding love and new family in the cold depths of space. Episode 1 is available online and Episode 2 is in development.

Past game development has mostly been done whilst holding down full-time work in other areas such as QA testing, VR exhibition, or delivering vegetables. Unfortunately, keeping up that output whilst working fulltime is unsustainable.

Double-unfortunately, when making the decision whether to cut creative output or quit my day job, the coronavirus outbreak has sprung up and caused me to be indoors-bound for, by current guidance, 12 weeks, due to immunocompromised status and general health woes. Needless to say I am no longer working in public exhibition, and now need a new income.

That, hopefully, is where you come in!


Goals
£56 of £100 per month
At this point, I can comfortably dedicate a day a week to game development, without worrying about paid work for that day.
