Ability Drain

is creating gaming culture content and streaming


Welcome! My name's Emma, I go under the alias of Ability Drain on YouTube and Twitch. I stream on Twitch 5 days a week (weekdays) usually around 7pm/8pm/9pm GMT (11am/12pm/1pm PST) although thats currently subject to change as I don't have a set schedule yet (it's early days).

On my channel, I create content covering video games and gaming culture in general. The crux of my YouTube channel tends to be BioWare related content (when there's a new game or content coming out from one of their franchises), along with theory/speculation videos about whatever game from whatever developer/franchise/genre happens to pique my interest.

What will my pledge go towards?

  • Living expenses such as rent, bills and the general cost of living that being an adult entails.
  • Streaming expenses such as commissioning artists to create emotes, games, licenses and software to improve the quality of the stream.
  • Other channel/streaming related expenses such as better editing software, lighting, computer maintenance, audio/video equipment, travel expenses to games conventions/expos, and other general bits 'n' pieces to improve the channel.

Your support gives me the freedom and resources to stream and create more content, more often. If that becomes a steady means of income then my range can extend way beyond the games and topics I'm providing you at present.

Why don't you pay for this stuff?

Good question. If you don't already know I'm currently pursuing a career in voice-over, while paid VO work has been coming in fairly regularly it's not a profession that provides a guaranteed regular flow of income, particularly when you're just starting out in the fledgeling stage of your career. I'm fully aware that I'm taking a risk chasing a career in VO and online content creation but if I don't try I'll regret it. Shit or get off the pot, amirite! 

I will never force anyone to donate - my videos will always remain free).

Tier rewards:

Bear with me on this one, I'll need to think up some decent rewards. What sort of rewards would you guys like? If you have any suggestions let me know!

I'd actually be earning a fairly normal salary, I guess!
