Welcome to Stonepug Studio's Patreon Page!
We're a tight knit cadre of like-minded otakus who have spent many a pleasant evening consuming the visual novels of other studios and it's our dream to contribute to a medium we love, to take a turn  sitting at the writer's desk and producing something that can give our readers a bit of pleasure, a moment of respite, or that resonant feeling that you are not the last human in the universe (that last bit may just apply to me).

If all you can contribute is the time and attention you spend reading our VigNettes, then you are already doing something more meaningful than you could know.  You are welcome at our site, neighbor.  I hope you enjoy it and find the time to reach out to us on occasion; we will always appreciate hearing from you.

If you're in a position where you can contribute more, though, then that money will go to new characters, new backgrounds, and new illustrations for our VigNettes.  It will free up time we typically spend being slowly digested by our corporate overlords which will allow for more frequent and higher quality content.

What's a VigNette?
It's probably faster to see it than to explain it.  Come check it out at stonepug.com!

No, seriously, what's a VigNette?
I still believe it's better experienced than explained, but I'll give it a shot!

Visual Novel Vignettes, or VigNettes for short, are short stories that are told in a visual novel format.  How it works is we have a recurring cast of actors and actresses who play different roles for each VigNette.  These stories may be comedic or dramatic, high concept or low concept, cerebral or puerile, but all will have the common thread that they are worthy of the telling.  We will never publish a VigNette that we don't believe in!

Our acting troupe is currently comprised of nine members: Lorelai, Vivian, Aurora, Kathleen, Stonewall, Pugs, Asimov, David, and Alfred.  We're hoping to grow our cast with your support!

Why Patreon?
Any VigNette we're hosting is free to read in its entirety and we intend to keep it this way!  However, this also means that we're funding these project from our own (very) limited resources, and this in turn limits the stories we can tell to the assets that we have created.  Your patronage will go to securing more sprites and images to work with so we can tell more ambitious tales.
