my mission


I've been making games for over 15 years. I've worked with amazing people. Players have told me things I helped create really made a difference in their lives. I'm very proud of that.

That's only part of my story, though.

For just as long, I've been planting seeds: creating small things in my spare time, gradually building my skills as a solo independent developer. Since 2007, my ultimate goal has been to make a living doing that. The one piece of the puzzle that's always been missing is financial resources - paying rent and buying groceries while I work on a game full-time.

I don't think something like Kickstarter is right for this. I don't want to make promises or do a video song and dance, I don't want to entrust the quality of what I'm making to a company that may have other priorities. I want to share this process with you and in return I hope you trust where I'm going with my work.

At this point in my career I know that, given the chance, I can make something really good. I have a clear plan for how I'm going to do that, but I need to cover living expenses while I work towards it.

Check out my Patreon if you want to help me get there.

Thanks for joining me on this exciting journey!
