Howdy! I'm Patrick Rodriguez. I make games and funny internet art. I love creating things, learning new things, and experimenting with weird and silly ideas.

I'm currently working on several independent game projects, and hope to use Patreon to allow me to devote more time and resources into making them.

How this works: If you like the games I make and are interested in seeing more, you can become my patron on here, and pledge to give an amount of money every time I release a game. You can set that amount at whatever you like, and set a monthly limit that you won't go over (although it is unlikely that I'll release more than one game a month at this time). In exchange, I'll be able to continue making games in my spare time, and you'll be able to get the scoop on my work before everyone else!

One of the biggest projects I'm working on right now is called  8 Bitty Games. It is a series of 8 games for the original Game Boy system. The first game, Yarn Ball, was recently released. It is a puzzle game where you play as a ball of yarn rolling around a series of caves. It is currently available for download at itch.io or in-browser at 8bittygames.com. The second game is a rhythm game called Tiny Dancer, where you must learn and follow a series of dance steps that gets faster and more complicated every round!

I'm also working on some non-digital games, and would love to share those with you, too. One of them is a storytelling card game called Legends of Beforia that is currently being finished up and getting ready for publication hopefully Spring 2015.

The funds raised through Patreon will help offset the costs of hardware, e.g., extra Game Boys and flash carts (and batteries!), and any software I might need, as well as prototypes and publication for non-digital games.

Thanks for contributing! If you have any questions or comments, feel free to contact me at @LightAesthetic on Twitter or email me at [email protected].
