The Backlog is creating Video Games Reviews and News

At The Backlog, we strive to provide quality video games news, reviews, and more. Since we began in May of 2014, we have covered over 200 games and are continuing to grow all the time. We've covered games such as Disgaea 5, every Danganronpa title, and several Neptunia games.

Unfortunately, doing all of this coverage isn't free. While we have worked with several companies over the past and have received review copies from them, a lot of our review coverage does come out of our own pockets. We have started this Patreon page to reach out to you, our fans, so that you can help give back to us so that we can continue our work. While none of our content will be locked to only patron's, we will have special events each month so that our supporters can help choose some of the reviews that we post.

So who works for The Backlog? We currently have two active writers - Erin Jenison (@rinimt), and Emma Rice (@AugoraRiceBall). By helping us out, you will be able to help both of us work towards providing quality content for all. The majority of the support provided here will be used to help both Erin and Emma continue to be able to provide you with more reviews, as well as news and all of the other features we do. What doesn't go into the site will be used to help both out financially with getting by in life.

So this is great and all, but how about some examples of the work we provide?

Our goals are fairly simple - help out the site, and then help us out:

-Hosting Costs Covered - $20/month - Fairly simply - this would cover all of our hosting fees each month so that the site can actually stay up and running!

-More New Releases Covered - $150/month - Should we make it here, we will use the money to cover even more new releases each month (split evenly between both writers). As patrons, you will be able to help with choosing exactly which games we cover!

-Remove All Ads - $6000/month - A bit of a whopper of a goal, but should we make it here, we will remove all ads from the site. We all hate ads, but they do help with paying for things, which is why making it this far would help with completely removing them!

Why the monthly format instead of per-post format? With how much content we produce every month (news when it is available and within our interest, and reviews every 2-5 days), we wouldn't want to cause you all to go broke! In addition, we aren't setting any content behind pay and are simply making it available to all. By supporting us here, you are helping us do just that.

You can easily find us on Twitter as well. All of our new content is posted there as soon as it's available.

We greatly appreciate any and all pledges, and look forward to bringing even more quality content going forward!
