Pixels and Pins Studio is creating stories
Hey, I'm Ashe, I'm here, I'm queer, and I develop visual novels. Also shorts stories. And sometimes audio dramas. And I am thinking about a webcomic....
Basically the idea board is gettin' pretty full these days. 
In addition to writing, development, and voice acting, I travel around to conventions with an educational panel about visual novel development, write articles about project and creative management, and make videos about high level creative processes. I want to keep doing these things, do them more, defray some of my development overhead, and bring in people like voice actors, composers, and artists to collaborate on new and exciting things. 
That's where you come in. 
For only a small contribution a month, I can start gathering the funds to do bigger and better things.

Will you be a part of what's next?

How the Support Tiers Work

I love to create, but I also want to help empower other people to create to the best of my ability. I'm not super keen, then, on keeping a lot of that sort of thing behind paywalls. My articles and How-to videos, then, will remain totally free and open to the public.
For those who are kind enough to lend me their support, however, I'll be offering a more in-depth behind the scenes look at what I'm doing. Right now, this means bi-weekly progress reports on major projects, sneak peeks at new ideas, and early access to demos of new game releases. 
As we progress and things come together in a more coherent form, I'm open to offering up things like my Trello boards, my idea documents, my organized lore notes, or whatever thing Patrons have an interest in seeing! Polls will go up in the future to hear what you have to say. 

Where Will the Money Go?

  • Website upkeep
  • Steam publishing fees
  • Implementing voice acting for future projects
  • Commissioning artists and composers for future projects
  • Possible future vendor/demo fees at conventions
  • Marketing expenses for conventions and demos
  • Taking over the world?
