Pledge Rewards

$1 - Supporter
This tier is all about showing your support for the project without committing to spending much money. Individually, one dollar doesn't do much, but collectively they can add up enough to make a difference.

  • Early access to public builds before they are made public. Public builds are typically released once-per-month. You'll get access about 2 weeks in advance of the public release.

  • A vote in development polls. Development polls are used to choose artists, determine development focus, and make fun decisions related to the game.

  • Occasionally gain access to special test releases for the purpose of function or compatibility tests. This only occurs as the need arises.

  • Discord - Red name that distinguishes you from visitors and gives you access to more channels.

  • How to get it: Supporter rewards are all released in Patreon posts. Look there for posts marked "patron only" or limited to $1 patrons. 

$5 - Beta Tester
This tier is a more significant contribution to development, without being too much of a financial burden. It's about like buying a friend a coffee at Starbucks once a month. It may be small individually, but collectively it really makes a difference!

  • Access to each incremental version of the game. Incremental versions are released as completed, and depend on development at the time. Later in development this will mean 1 or more versions per week. During Stage 1 & 2, this means a version approximately every 1 to 2 weeks. Versions will occasionally be released more frequently though.

  • Access to the backer version of the game. The name is confusing. Sorry. The backer version of the game is currently only slightly different from the public version. As development progresses, the backer version will have more differences. These are planned to be non-content features/functions and minor reward items to spice things up like additional starting outfit options.

  • 2 Votes in development polls. In some instances, your Beta Tester vote may be worth 4, rather than 1, vote.

  • Discord - A red-orange name that signals your support for the game, and some extra privileges in some other channels.

  • How to get it: Beta Tester rewards are all released in Patreon posts. Look there for posts marked "patron only" or limited to $1 or $5 patrons. 

$10 - Backer
This tier is the real "meat and potatoes" of support for development. $10 is certainly a more noticeable amount of money, but it also makes a huge difference for development. Without support from patrons in this tier, things like commissioning game art most likely wouldn't be possible, and I wouldn't be able to pour as much effort into development.

  • Access to the "cheats" version of the game. This version of the game lets you take a more sandbox approach to the game by allowing you to edit your character's status, use cheats like automatically passing skill checks, and even make changes to NPCs and relationships. Note that cheats are integrated into the game mechanics, meaning they are built along with the game and not after, but that the mechanics have to exist before they work!

  • The cheats version of the game will have access to the Role-play Challenge game mode when it is complete. This mode adds unique circumstances and challenges into the game, increasing replay value. It will eventually be released to everyone in version 1.0, but until then only $10+ patrons have access.

  • Access to many more premade characters, including some eccentric options. Other versions of the game will only have access to a limited number of premade characters.

  • 3 Votes in development polls. In some instances, your Backer votes may be worth a total of 10 votes.

  • Discord - A orange name that makes you look pretty cool* and access to the VIP channel. You can use more discord functions, and your pretty-colored name puts more weight behind your opinions and suggestions there. Also, according to statistics from the CDC, you're like 25% less likely to be molested there, or 100% more likely if you're looking for some good molestering*.

  • How to get it: Backer rewards are all released in Patreon posts. Look there for posts marked "patron only" or limited to $1,$5, or $10 patrons. 

$20 - Fan
This tier is full of awesome people. $20 is a noticeable chunk of change each month, but seeing people who support my vision for the game to this extent is incredibly encouraging. It goes beyond simple financial support, and truly means a lot to me. $20 backers are what really motivated me to move up some of my plans for things like commissioning art and making other commitments. 

  • Download all the game art in original resolution, untouched and un-watermarked. Any other game assets that are produced will also be made available for you in one way or another.

  • The power of the True Name*. Many believe that knowing something's true name gives you power over it. (Submit a name of your choice to be used in the game for a person, place, or thing. This is a semi-recurring reward. Click the link below for details.)

  • Occasional access to 'bonus' content and posts. This is to help show my appreciation, and may not always be directly game-related. No set schedule, just what I can when I can.

  • 4 Votes in development polls. In some instances, your Fan votes may be worth a total of 20 votes.

  • Discord - A yellow name that makes you look really cool*. You can use more discord functions, and your pretty-colored name puts even more weight behind your opinions and suggestions there.

  • How to get it: Look on Patreon for posts marked "patron only" or limited to $1,$5, $10, or $20 patrons. 

$50 - Enthusiast
This tier is full of downright amazing people. $50 is a really serious contribution, and I can't stress enough how much it means to me. It's not about the dollar value contributing to development--though it makes a huge dent there--it's what it means for a single person to believe in my vision for real quality ero-game. I put a lot of thought into what someone that serious has to say. I won't compromise development or start adding features, but the words of enthusiasts make a huge difference when I'm considering different options or looking for an opinion.

  • Learn the arcane secrets necessary to transform into an erolich yourself*.

  • Content commission: Have your own custom NPC put into the game OR have a story item/event chain added to the game, OR add a sex action, special item, or other thing to the game. This isn't a simple task, and will take time to implement. There are limits to what is possible, but I will work with you to realize your idea. 

  • 4 Votes in development polls. In some instances, your Enthusiast votes may be worth a total of 50 votes.

  • Discord - A green name that makes you look amazingly cool*. You can do pretty much anything on discord, and your vibrant name puts more weight behind your opinions and suggestions there.

  • How to get it: Look on Patreon for posts marked "patron only" or limited to $1,$5, $10, or $20 patrons.

*I'm probably making this up. probably.
