is creating Browser Simulations

Elevator Pitch:

JR here and let me tell you about FarragoFiction. We make games, simulations and weird shit using browser based code shenanigans both for free online and more complex paid things on Steam. We enable, you, the fans to submit ideas, art and writing to our works, to see your ideas grow. You can use custom characters created with the DollSim to play many of the games or simulations we create.

If you back us, you'll get:
  • Gigglesnort???
  • Ability to contribute even more than normal to our creative process

  • Closed Beta access to new steam games (like LOHAE)
  • Free merch???
  • Custom Discord Roles.

With your money we will be able to continue to focus on these weird things, instead of doing other work for money. (Gotta pay the bills, yo).


Details

Whoa...what is this???
FarragoFiction.com” is a miserable pile of secrets :) :) :)

We make games with definitely no secrets, ARG elements or riddles like: SBURB Sim, WigglerSim, Land of Horticulture and Essence, and the overarching steam game Farragnarok. We are absolutely, completely, not aware at all of anything called “Homestuck”.

You can check out the DollSim to make dolls of various types (and we're always accepting new doll sets and pieces from you, the fans).

Why have a Patreon?

It costs money to submit games to steam, make sweet merch, get neat tools, host websites and have backups of everything set up.

It costs TIME (which is money) to work on all this, time we could be focusing on other, paying gigs. Some of us have full time jobs, others are primarily supported through contract work, so every dollar coming in here directly speeds things up. And if we eventually get enough of an income source we can flat out focus on this in WAY more amounts.

What is JR’s “WARLORD goals”? How scared should I be?

Heheheh. Seriously though, nothing ominous. I just want to be able to support people’s livelihoods while also conquering territory from my competitors.


Why become a Patron?

First and foremost: Because you can afford to be. Don’t do this shit if you can’t afford it, yo.

Become a Patron if you like what we do. Maybe you use our DollMaker a lot, or play our free games. Maybe you want us to be able to work faster, or to have better tools to do awesome things?

Of course, there’s also REWARDS if you’re a patron. Gigglesnort and merch and twitch streams and voting and all that. You’ll definitely be getting more of the FarragoFiction experience if you’re a patron, because how else am I going to beat that random space player everyone knows about?

Also. Coins.

Why coins?
Look sometimes a waste just needs to obsessively collect a random object. Don't judge me.

What is Farragnarok?

Farragnarok is an early access steam game intended to be inspired by, but not directly cribbing from, Homestuck’s SBURB game. There are 8 players in it, and each get their own land (complete with bullshit puzzle focused game to play on it). There will be meta plot, secrets and lore built up around it, too. We’re using it to learn how to do things that SBURBSim alone couldn’t teach us, like playing around with achievements, steam saves, full ARGs and the like.



Wait, what is SBURBSim?


Wow. Where to start? Okay, so, it’s a simulation of the game SBURB from Homestuck. SBURB is an incredibly complicated game with high stakes and very codified rule sets that fans speculate endlessly on. It’s pretty much perfect for making a simulation of, for the purpose of generating near infinite stories, along with procedural artwork.

If near-infinite stories wasn’t enough, SBURBSim also lets you customize sessions to have your custom characters in it, and then generates a story about them.

Guys, I am having SO MUCH fun making this thing. You don’t even.

Okay, so who are you?

I’m jadedResearcher (JR), the Author of all these shenanigans. I <3 programming and shitty AIs and Homestuck. (Are you shocked by these unexpected developments???). Oh yeah! I also love littering everything I do with easter eggs, secrets and references.

I founded FarragoFiction and spent a year living off savings to get its momentum built up before I had to go back to a full time jorb.


karmicRetribution (KR) is the Artist, and provides raw art assets as well as making sure the look and the feel of everything is up to snuff. : / You should SEE the shit I put out before partnering up with them. KR saves the world from my bad aesthetic sense.


paradoxLands(PL) is the Architect, and spearheaded the conversion of the Sim from JavaScript to Dart, which allowed far more interesting things to be accomplished. They make just....all the tools that make up the foundation of FarragoFiction. You may recognize them from their Land work on Tumblr. (Or the 404 page).

You, the FANS are also an important part of the team, submitting doll parts, fanart, ideas, bug reports and reporting my many, MANY typos.


What are your future plans?

Right now we have the team divided up into “Upgrading SBURBSim, Working on Farragnarok Lands, Working on Dolls and Puzzle Bullshit”. Things are going slower since I was always the main coder and now that I hafta full time jorb…. Lets just say my eventual goal is to be able to only jorb part time.

Bonus!!!
