Howdy! Thank you so much for taking your time to check on my Patreon page.

My name is Mike, a transmale dude from Brazil, an amateur game developer and writer. I lost my job a year ago and now I'm dodging between college and lots of medical appointments, exams and y'know, the totally not fun part of my life. I'll be done with college next year and in the meanwhile, I'm working on an indie horror game called When Darkness Falls (you can also find it at itch.io!)

For now, it's a simple, narrative / text-based game but maybe I can transform it into something bigger -- but for it to happen, I need a lot of support. I've been a writer for as long as I can remember (I've started writing fanfiction around 2005) and now, I'm determined to turn these skills into something interesting and entertaining for others.

Your support will help me with:

1. My bills: unfortunately I lost my job and now I don't have means to pay a $600 rent, not even counting light bills, food and other stuff. You'll help me to live, and I'm very grateful for that.
2. Game development: with your support, I can focus less on looking for a job and more on developing the game.
3. Game resources: some good resources aren't free -- music, art, etc. -- and as much as I intend to keep the game free-for-all, I also want to create something people will truly enjoy. But I'm no musician and I'm no artist. With your support, I'll be able to get more special resources to use.
Thank you so much for reading everything and for your support! It means a lot to me and I'm just happy to bring you guys a new game. I hope you have a great time!

Your support will not only help me to pay my rent, but also will allow me get more special resources to use in the game When Darkness Falls.
