In our increasingly divided world, the feeling of "that person is just like me" goes a long way in breaking down the barriers between us. That's what Cloth Map is trying to do, but we need your help!

What you get as a Patreon subscriber

As thanks for helping to support the project, Patrons get access to exclusive perks like behind-the-scenes videos, early access to videos, a discount on the Cloth Map Store, a direct line for their own travel questions, and more!

Have a look at the reward tiers on the right side of this page for more info.

Why Patreon?

This kind of project does not work within the rigid confines of traditional media, which is why we rely on viewer contributions. With the help of our Patrons, we've so far been to...

  • Ukraine to see (among other things) Chernobyl, which has provided inspiration to countless games and media over the years
  • Brazil, where economic restrictions can create an alternate video game reality
  • Cuba, where citizens built their own city-wide gaming network out of nothing but rebar and ingenuity
  • Mongolia, where the entire nation gets together to celebrate the games of Genghis Khan
  • And most recently the Balkans, which is experiencing a game resurgence in the wake of a devastating conflict

And we're just getting started.

If you value the work we're doing to create a sense of kinship in our global community, we'd love to have you with us!
