Greetings, Gladiators! We who about to create, salute you!

Hi everyone, I'm Oliver Joyce. I'm a solo game developer best known for creating the cult hit gladiator game series Swords and Sandals.

Whiskeybarrel Studios is my games studio. With your help I'll be able to build the next generation of games (including Swords and Sandals) for all platforms. At present, I rely on income from previous Swords and Sandals games to continue to make the series, but I also have a part time job and can only work on my games just two days a week. Development on the games is constant but often too slow for people's likings, and that's where Patreon comes in.

With your support I'll be able to go full time on making unique, compelling and unforgettable RPG games, hire great artists and musicians to work on the game, be able to spend more time creating the lore and stories behind the beloved characters and really just add tons of juice to not only Swords and Sandals but every game I make going forward.

Cheers!

Tiers
Gladiator
$2 or more per month

You have fought in the arena and can count yourself amongst Brandor's bravest. You shall have my thanks, special access to the S&S discord channel and a credit in every future game I make.

Great Warrior
$5 or more per month

In addition to everything in the Gladiator tier, I will add your name and a tagline to the wall of heroes in all future games I make, as well as access to monthly special and interesting bits and pieces from my game dev past, be it a fragment of lost art, chapter of an unfinished Brandor story or unused sound effect from a game!.

Arena Champion
$10 or more per month

In addition to everything in the Gladiator and Veteran Warrior tier, I will work with you to custom create a special character in a future game project of your choice!

Legend of Brandor
$25 or more per month

In addition to everything in the Gladiator, Great Warrior and Arena Champion tiers, I will work with you to make you an integral part of my next game, be it in designing a hero/villain of the game world or whatever you choose! More on this coming soon.

Goals
8% complete
Bring on board a dedicated artist

Right now, I do much of the art for the games myself and contract out to artists when I can. Historically though, the budget for art has been very lean, it's the only way I can get the games released and still pay the bills! With this milestone, I'll confidently be able to reach out to an artist to come on board with regular work - someone who will truly breath life and magic into the S&S franchise in a way that it truly deserves!
