Tiers
Patreon Feed Access
$1 or more per month
We'll talk about what games we're playing, what we're theorizing about, and ask for your input. We want our feed to be an open forum for developing new theory about video games. Come be a part of it!
Pick Our Brains
$3 or more per month
Once a month, ask the analysts a question—about our work, about a game, or about video games in general. We'll publish all our answers to these questions at the end of each month. All previous rewards included.
Draft Access
$5 or more per month
Exclusive access to early drafts of our work—everything from brainstorms, to sketches, to outlines, to first drafts with commentary from other writers. A lot of the value in what we do is developing a new process for analyzing video game stories: with this reward, you get an inside look at that process. Includes all previous rewards.
Chat Us Up
$10 or more per month
Once a month, we'll have an hour-long livestream talking about video game analysis. Send in questions or thoughts, and we'll discuss them. This reward gives you full access! All previous rewards included.
Tell Us Whom to Critique
$25 or more per month
Send us your own analysis, or point us to some the work of someone else who thinks about video games—a YouTuber, an academic, whoever. Once a month, you can point us to an argument; we'll evaluate the argument and post our critique on our site. All previous rewards included.
Producer Status
$50 or more per month
We'll list you prominently as a producer on the site, and we'll let you be a part of the brainstorming process as we decide on new articles to write. The second month in a row that you contribute at this tier (one-time only), you can pick a game and we'll publish an article analyzing it. All previous rewards included.
Executive Producer Status
$100 or more per month
We'll list you prominently as an executive producer on the site. Once a month, have a one-on-one, hour-long video chat with founder Aaron Suduiko. Talk about video games, the site, philosophy. Also, once every two months that you consecutively contribute at this level, pick a game and we'll analyze it. All previous rewards included, except the $50 reward.
Patron Saint of Video Game Analysis
$500 or more per month
You are the Patron Saint of Video Game Analysis. We'll list you PROMINENTLY on the site as a Top Contributor. Pick a game every month and we'll analyze it. We'll discuss all aspects of site development with you, and you can propose for discussion any potential new features you'd like to see added to the site. You'll get exclusive, free access to merch before the public even sees it. Once a month, we'll host you on a special podcast where you talk with our analysts for an hour about whatever aspects of video games you want—you set the agenda. Basically, you're as involved as you want to be. All previous rewards except $50 and $100 included.
