is creating videos about games




per month


Thanks to the generous support of everyone over the years I'm now focusing on creating videos full-time instead of just as a side project. As long as we can maintain enough pledges to keep me alive I'm happy to continue making videos as my job for the foreseeable future. There's a few things you should know first of all though so read on before you consider pledging.

The most important bits:
  • The money will largely be spent on day-to-day living expenses but like anyone else I'll be buying other things with it too. Sometimes that'll be equipment relevant to my work, sometimes it'll be beers, sometimes it'll be something dumb that struck my fancy, sometimes it'll be Christmas or birthday presents for friends. It doesn't all go into videos. Think about the things you spend money on, that's what I'll be buying. Except that weird stuff you're into.

  • Your pledge doesn't buy you any preferential treatment. In fact, I take my impartiality so seriously I try not to even see who's donating to me. I'm equally open to feedback from anyone, patron or not, it's the only way to be fair.

  • All of my content will continue to be available for everyone without any pay walls. I don't think anyone deserves to be locked out of what I'm doing just because they can't afford to donate.

  • If you can't or don't want to donate that's no problem. I may not have a day job any more but I left on good terms and I feel confident enough I'll be alright even if I have to give up doing videos full-time.

In the interest of being as open as possible:

I now consider making videos to be my day job - one I intend to work very hard at - but not my entire life. I hope some day to enter games development myself so sooner or later I'll be taking a crack at making my own game in my spare time. It would be a lie to say I'm going to dedicate 100% of my time to producing videos. Rest assured pretty much all my interests relate to games in some way though so even if I fail at them I'll at least gain more insight I can use as video fuel.

Impartiality extends to publishers and developers as well, in order to maintain this:
  • I’ll continue to reject free copies of games from developers/publishers
  • I won’t accept any other freebies or invitations to events either.
  • I won’t do any sponsored content of any kind.

If all this sounds good to you then I'd be happy to accept anything you can chip in. The support I receive here has allowed me to turn my love of games into my line of work, for that I'm very grateful.

$1,000 - reached! per month
Maintaining this level should allow me to continue producing videos indefinitely. The closer we can get to or above this goal the better but for now I have savings that will make up the difference.
