THE BARON IS HAILING YOU...


When I started streaming on Twitch in June of 2014, I had a simple goal: Make someone’s day better through quality entertainment.

I had no idea that it would become my career, or lead to the creation of a community filled with incredible individuals who share my passion for space, science, and the video games those subjects inspire.

Bad News Gaming is now the largest gathering of space sim fans on Twitch. And this community has done incredible things, from raising thousands of dollars to help children with cancer and their families, to raising awareness (and even more funds) for research into the treatment of depression, autism, PTSD, and addiction through the Brain and Behavior Research Foundation.

At the core, my goal has stayed the same: Enrich people’s lives through entertainment. But you’ve shown me we can do so much more, and now we’re pursuing that path further.

Where does Patreon come in?

Here in the early stages of my new career, Patreon is critical. Your support allows me not just to function as a full time content creator, but to invest in in this community. Here's what your support allows me to do:

  • Spread the word, and grow this community of enthusiasts, and the games we love.
  • Use video games as a tool for teaching and raising interest in space and science research.
  • Increase our capacity for helping those who need it most.
  • Bring you higher quality content, and expand what I can create and deliver.

What should I pledge?

Every dollar counts. In fact, if you pledge just one dollar, you'll have helped this project in more ways you than you can imagine. If you value the content and entertainment I provide every day, please consider becoming a backer. And I'll do my very best to deliver on my commitment to this community.

With humble thanks,
Baron

My groceries are sponsored by Patreon. $200 a month is a tight food budget, but one that I can make work (and healthy!) with a little creativity and my trusty crockpot.
