Patreon and Personal Life

Journal Entry: Mon Sep 29, 2014, 12:41 PM


I posted this to my Tumblr earlier this month. The month is coming to a close and I figured I should make a post here to DeviantArt in case anyone is interested:

So, I recently had an unexpected emergency where I needed to get surgery. I’m fine, don’t worry… but it has unfortunately left very little in my personal bank account. With bills looming over me, I debated and struggled with the idea of creating a patreon page, and have finally come to the decision to open one.

Okay, first I want to explain that this setback will not affect the game (other than having to take a couple of days off last week to recover).  I’ve been working on Destiny Fails Us for over 60 hours per week, and this is to help me pay the bills.

If you support me on patreon, at the moment there’s two reward tiers:
  • $5 Monthly Wallpaper(s) [exclusive to patreon]
  • $10 Monthly Music Sample(s) and Track(s)

These rewards guarantee at least one wallpaper or music sample/track to download each month, but I may also upload more. I may include more reward tiers in the future.

If you would like to help, but would like to make a one time donation, you can donate via paypal or gumroad. These have their own rewards at $15+, and $25+. At $15 you will receive the game and soundtrack, and at $25 you will receive the game, the soundtrack, and the “behind the scenes” art book pdf. These will be emailed to the email address provided upon the full game’s release.

If you can help out in any way, I will be incredibly thankful. Everyone who’s supported me so far with DFU is awesome, and I really appreciate the kind words, donations, and love I’ve received from you guys. Thank you!

Personal Life

Not much has been going on lately with me. Earlier this month I had to get surgery, but I'm doing better now.

I haven't done much other than work on Destiny Fails Us, which is going pretty great. I have been working on character sprites the last few days and Idril has so many outfits and expressions.

Tyler and I did pick up Hyrule Warriors a few days ago, and we played through a couple of levels in the story mode. I'm really liking it so far. :D

And today for my Dad's birthday I'll be leaving for a couple of hours to see the Boxtrolls. I'm looking forward to it!

You don't have a general purpouse paypal donation option? o3o

The first option on my paypal donation page "I just want to help!" would fall under general purpose :)

If only the setback could have happened later. I start a new job next Monday, and once I get my first paycheck from it, I'd be in a far better position to help you out.

Yeah, I was kinda hoping to ignore the problem until it was more convenient to deal with (money-wise), but it didn't work out that way. It's a good thing I went in though, now I'm feeling better and I can concentrate on work without pain... It's just a bit stressful. Either way though, I'm just glad I can continue to work on DFU. I'm going to continue doing these patreon incentives, so maybe some awesome people will be able to help out along the way. :)

A new job? That's great! I hope it turns out well! Good luck :D

Just take care of yourself. If there's any lesson to be learned from your experience, it's to not put off any potential medical issues. :)
