Zero Brightness is a horror video game podcast made by two musicians, Ali Jaafar from Minneapolis, MN and James Woodard from San Antonio, TX. 
Each episode of Zero Brightness deep-dives into a game or theme head first. We think horror games have a unique way of conveying things that other genres can't. Horror games are special. Let's talk about it. 

The quality of our podcast is very important to us, so you won't hear any lousy, Skype-quality conversations on our show. We spend a lot of time editing and mixing. We have also written and recorded a bunch of music specifically for the show. 

So, what do we need a Patreon for?
First and foremost, we need to pay for web hosting and our Soundcloud account. Web hosting is around $8 a month and Soundcloud is, like $12 a month.

We also want to review new releases, and release reviews as close to the release date as possible. Since we don't have the clout to get free Steam keys, we try to use Patreon money to review these new releases. 

As an incentive to donate, we have begun releasing bonus episodes called Zero Brightness Plus as patron-only bonuses! We have decided that there is NO MINIMUM for people to access this content, so you can donate as little as $1 a month and access the bonus episodes! Let us know what you'd like to hear in this bonus content!
