Hi there, I'm Talen Lee!  I make games, and want to show you how you can do it too!

I'm what we nebulously call a games academic - I teach about how to make games, and study how to make games, as a PhD student and tutor at My Local University. What I mostly do is make, and I want to share with you that process, and empower you to realise you can make things too.

This purpose of this Patreon is twofold: One, it's a way you can choose to support my creative work, because you, you wonderful and lovely person, want to exist in a world where your tips and pocket change can support people who make #content you like, and two, it lets people who want to be part of the process contribute directly!

My aim is always to make as much of my work freely available as possible, but there will be room here for process pieces, and special bundle monthly games sales for my Patreon subscribers.

And of course, I want to take this chance to thank you so much: Because this represents an opportunity to get to do this work I love doing for people who love it.

You want to support me, you like what I'm doing, and you figure, yeah, heck, all that sweet sweet content is worth like, a buck a month. You get access to the feed and bundle sales. Thank you so much.

You don't just like me, you want to see yourself reflected in the work I make. When I make work that involves character names, place names or specific locations, I will poll people at this tier and above for interest.

You know how there's this culture of people who just want someone with a Commonwealth accent telling you something you already believe to be true is right. Every month, you can submit a subject and I'll do some research and record you a 5-minute micropodcast about how The Thing You Like Is Good (if I can).

You don't just like what I do, you like it so much you want to see it put to use on an idea of yours. 


If you buy at this tier, I will spend a month with you building what we call a project dossier - a detailed outline of a plan for how to make a game you want to see made. Slots for this are limited.

Goals
$99 of $150 per month
At this rate, I will be releasing a $15-$25 game a month, and thanks to this kind of payment, these games will have the chance to commission single pieces of art or writing by someone who isn't me.

At this stage, I'll be able to do group sales, where I can afford to do big distributions of games to every patron at a reduced rate, like postage-free game sales.
