Hello!

First off I want to thank you for taking the time to visit my Patreon Page! I’m Jon Sypher a concept artist/ 3D Modeler / Texture artist/ Rigger / Animator / Graphic artist / Game Designer and Story Writer.

I’m currently combining these skills to create an inspired 3D Action side scroller that aims to merge fluid gameplay with immersive storytelling in a way not common to the AAA market.

The game is progressing slowly because I’m currently working as a free-lance artist to stay a-float. With your support I'll be free to develop Project Hack N' Slash (working title) Full-time and dedicate 100% of my time and ability to delivering something new and awesome to the gaming community!

Project Hack and Slash (PHAS) is a 3D side scrolling, combo heavy beat'em up with a rich narrative focused on plot depth and character development. Combine that with an unfamiliar spin on familiar features/mechanics my aim is to give you a unique experience sure to challenge conventional boundaries of the genre.

Because the game is heavily story driven and I’d hate to spoil anything: Alpha Play Tests will be available to lvl 3 Patrons in the form of ‘The Danger Room’, a training arena where you’ll be able to play test battle mechanics, modes and maneuverability.
The Danger Room (Now in progress!) will be updated alongside development with new battle mechanics, modes, enemies & abilities so you’ll be battle ready upon release.

Transparency notice to lvl 3+ Supporters: Once all base mechanics are locked in, Danger Room Updates will eventually slow to a stop as development efforts will shift to the bulk of the game for time sake.

Note: Any potential patrons under the age of 18 will require permission before pledging.
Project Hack and Slash will receive either a 'T' or 'M' rating from the ESRB.
