One of my Patreon supporters asked me a question, and I thought it was such an interesting question that I decided to make a video to answer it. The creation of the video went by relatively quickly, since I was able to make it entirely using pre-existing footage and copyright-free images (paintings from around 200 years ago).
I feel guilty that I rarely create cool content for my supporters on Patreon, and recently, I’ve been trying to figure out what kind of rewards I could offer to the people who are supporting me. However, there are three obstacles in my way:
- Whatever I create for the patrons has to be something that doesn’t take too much time away from the game’s development, or else it would be counter-productive.
- I can’t offer any physical goods, because manufacturing and shipping physical goods is very expensive. Any rewards for patrons have to be digital rewards.
- I want everything that I create to be public, so it’s really difficult for me to consider the possibility of making something that will be exclusive to a small group of people, even if it’s only for a short period of time.
What could I provide that could be made quickly, digitally, and shared with the world, while still being a worthy thank-you gift for patron supporters? Above, you can see one potential idea: A simple video that exists to answer a patron’s question in thorough detail.
It’s too early to promise whether or not I’ll regularly make videos like this for Patreon supporters; it kinda depends on how often I hear especially thought-provoking questions. But, if it would be an enticing reward for joining the Patreon, I’d definitely consider it. “$20 Tier: YandereDev will make a simple video to answer any question or discuss any topic related to Yandere Sim. Video will be at least 5 minutes long.”
Would you join that tier?
