Who am I?

I'm Morjax, and I've been running my YouTube channel since November 2014 with the idea that there are a TON of amazing games out there, and I want to share them with other people like me. I also aim to cultivate a corner of the internet that is unusually pleasant to hang around. =D

Now, there continues to be so many glorious games to play and share and experience with you all. I am absolutely thrilled by the wonderful thing my channel and community are, and how wonderful each of you are in it. I've made more than 1000 videos and tens of thousands of tweets in that time (oh my word, the tweets are everywhere). I've done YouTube content creation as a part-time endeavor on top of my family life and full-time job. Two thoughts associated with that:

1) I want to keep making things for you for a long time to come. Growth comes in spurts, but I'm approaching the zone where it's not out of the realm of imagination that I might someday do this full time. Making things for you is the most fun I've ever had doing anything work-shaped. In some shape or another I want to keep doing these amazing, engaging, and fun things.

2) To do YouTube the way I want to, I need it to be self-sustaining. The fact is that I cannot do everything I aspire to due to the real time and energy requirements of my day job. It's not healthy for me to stake out as much time as I want to, around my day job, family time, and sleep schedule (which is a balance I've struggled with in the past). In the meantime, I must triage my time and energy to make the things I most want to make, but many of the things I want to make must be put on the back burner until I can get to them.

The way Patreon works is that viewers can donate whatever amount they want per month and the donation is recurring each month after that. Every single contribution adds up fast, and is far and away the fastest track to my doing YouTube full-time.

I don't expect or assume anyone will contribute any more to my goofball projects than simply watching my videos. Truly, I appreciate that by itself. But if you feel like contributing more (in any amount!), it'll all go back into creating more stuff... 

Just to be clear, I’m not charging for my content, nor will I: I'm just trying to have a more sustainable and reliable source or revenue to support the creation of the things that I make.

Why Patreon?

Patreon is the most powerful platform I know of to support the creators you care most about. The consistent revenue that I receive from Patreon allows me to 1) Save for my future, and make me less reliant on my day job (double-plus-good)! 2) make plans for those funds such as commission glorious art for my channel (supporting artists in the process), or hire help in making my videos.

As an example of my Patron’s support at work, my “Explain like I’m 2 Reviews” (in which I can only use the 1,000 most-used English words) are produced with the direct support of my Patrons. I have enlisted editing help to make these since they take so much more time than my standard content. If you enjoy these goofball creations, maybe you'd consider them worth your support?



Now What?

If you feel that my videos bring some value to you, I've set up a few goals and reward tiers, so you can choose your own adventure! I humbly thank your for taking the time to read through this, and for considering supporting me. These contributions really do make a difference for me (Patreon has been my primary source of YouTube revenue for more than a year now).

You are literally the reason I’m here: It’s for you that I keep striving to make the very best videos that I can every week, month and year! I am extremely excited by the notion that my creative adventures may one day provide me with actual adult-grade income. Your help and support is a gigantic and critical part of that dream. You are great, and I like making videos for you.


So… Can you help me build towards my dream?
