An unmotivated hero. A chicken with homicidal tendencies. An evil demigod in the midst of an identity crisis. The fate of the world is at stake, but it can wait a little longer… right?

Hello! My name’s Sam. I go by nibbink on YouTube, and I make the webcomic Rustled Jimmies. Recently I’ve started to make videos, and I realized that I love doing it, so I’ve wanted to focus more of my time towards growing on YouTube. To do so, I plan on adding my most ambitious project yet to the channel: SideQuest.

SideQuest is an upcoming animated pixel-art web series solely being developed by myself. It’s an original series with parodical elements from the tropes of the fantasy RPGs we all love. SideQuest follows Edis, a "quester-for-hire", and his friend and assistant Gallus, a very violent chicken. Up until now, everything in the world was normal, but ancient prophecies have soon turned to reality when a great evil has arrived: Gorvenal - The Demigod of Mayhem. Gorvenal plans to enslave the world as they know it, but he's not too sure how to do that yet... or even why for that matter. Meanwhile, Edis is apparently the "the chosen one" of prophecy, but he'd rather abandon his title and go do miscellaneous side quests instead, just like he always has. While Edis and Gallus are busy questing, Gorvenal doesn't know what to do when the one hero doesn't show up to stop him - leaving him like Rapunzel without a knight.

I’ve been developing SideQuest since December of 2017, and I’ve been slowly working on it nearly every day since. I’ve redesigned the characters more times than I can count, and I’ve rewritten the pilot over and over until I’ve got it to the point where I've imagined it being. Now, I have characters that I love (and I know you will too), I’ve written lore that hides in the background of the series, and I’ve found an art style that captures the look and feel of a retro video game, while allowing the show to explore a modern pace and comedic tone.

Why am I starting a Patreon for SideQuest? Well, I’m the only one working on the series, and your contributions will allow me to hire more voice actors and musicians to add another layer to the show, as well as supporting myself to focus more time developing it. I’ve included some tiers to the right to give you guys some rewards for supporting the series. Only on Patreon will you get to see behind the scenes, and I’ll be updating the progress of the series as it goes. Every tier comes with a certain number of coins that are added to your account the 1st of each month. You can use your coins, as well as read more about how it works at the bottom of this page in the 'Shop' section.

You can hop on Discord and join the town of SideQuest here - https://discord.gg/Tb2sZQF

As for the current state of SideQuest, I’ve finished all of the art and voice recordings, and I’m currently animating the pilot. I hope to get a teaser trailer out generally soon, but I’m working at my fastest pace while trying to keep my YouTube channel updated with content, and at the same time not abandoning Rustled Jimmies (more comics soon, I promise). I also promise that this is going to be a quality series, even though I’m developing it myself, I plan on making it look like I have a team.

If you can't support the series, that's okay. You can subscribe to my YouTube channel and be alerted when the first trailer releases. If you can support the series, thank you so much. Your money is funding something great. This is the direction I’ve wanted to go in my entire life, and I hope you choose to join me on this quest. Love you guys.




The chosen one? Edis? No… he’s not a hero, I mean he’s a nice guy, but there must have been a mistake somewhere… He can’t be the chosen one, he’s just a quester-for-hire, and a pretty good one at that. Or at least that’s what he tells himself. He doesn’t feel it’s his place to be the “hero” the world needs, and he likes to choose to ignore it. If that means that he’s finding a peasant’s lost hamster in a dungeon, or helping a fat king find a new wife, so be it. It just better be a lot of fun or have a good reward at the end of it, because then what’s the point?


Oh, Gallus? He’s just a cute little chicken… on the outside. Sure, he has the knowledge and ability to kill you in 0.3 seconds with just his left foot, but he knows Edis won’t stand for his violent antics. If he’s going to live under Edis’ roof, he needs to play by his rules -- and that means no sharp objects or “justified” assaults. He’s very loyal to his friend and ally, and if that’s what it takes to uphold his friendship and respect, he’ll try to smother his killer instincts.


Gorvenal, The Enslaver of Mankind… Conqueror of Souls… Demigod of Mayhem… and a bundle of inferiority and anxiety. He’s the one who was prophesized to doom the world, how could he feel so confused about it all? It doesn’t come easy to him, this whole “number one bad guy” thing, but he doesn’t want to let the ones who fear him down. He might not know how to be a great villian yet, but he knows it’s his prophetic fate, and that’s what stresses him out at night.


This is where you can spend your coins! Take a look around, let me know if there's anything you like. If you see something you want to exchange your coins for, send me a message in the #shop channel of the Discord server! You can keep track of your coin balance by multiplying your current tier by the number of months you've been a patron. Coins are added to your account every month after your payment is processed, usually around the 1st of the month!  If you're unsure of your current balance of coins, ask me in the same Discord channel and I'll let you know. If you want more coins than the tiers offer, you can make a custom pledge. $1 = 10 coins!
