Paid: $90.50 USD Date of purchase: October 15, 2019
My friend The-F0X sold the character Flye, which she received in a trade from artist Hioshiru, to SkreeDecree (now Hamsterly) in 2014. In 2020, a made a proposition to Hamsterly to purchase this character from her.
After a lengthy discussion that lasted a few months, I now own Flye.
Pledged: $25 per month Rewards: Discord role, Access to WIPs, Name in the credits, Early access, Suggestions/polls, Personalized animated badge Patreon start date: January 21, 2019
The-F0X is an artist I met at my college in 2015. I mainly wanted to see my mascot character in her style, and thank her for letting me use her characters for an animated series I’m working on, so I opted for this tier.
I became a patron as of August 2019. The personalized badge is below.

I haven’t kept up with this webcomic in such a long time, that I only heard about this Kickstarter while scrolling through Facebook. Fortunately, this physical edition has every comic I need to get caught back up.
Paid: $20 USD + $8 USD tip Commission: A flat colour, full body redesign of the character Arph from my animated series Nyah Has an Adventure Date of payment: August 19, 2018
CanisAries / Wolframclaws / Blanisquid / lovecraftisafurry / @Depresstopus is an awesome artist from Finland. Mostly known for her artworks and fanfiction in the Twitch Plays Pokémon community, she started to test the waters of the world of accepting commissions in 2018, much to my and everyone else’s delight. The first commission I have asked of her is a redesign of one of the main characters to my Nyah franchise.
After the Australian Shepherd-like fur markings of the new Arph were sorted out, and the basic shape of the character was defined, payment was made after a rough sketch was produced of the finalised artwork, which is shown below.
Now all that’s left to do is figure out how to retroactively un-canonize Arph’s old design… Oh, well. Introducing the new and improved Arph!
Pledged: $82 Rewards: Digital download of game, Physical boxed copy (signed by David Murray, the 8-Bit Guy): soundtrack on cassette tape, floppy disk with the game, printed manual, copy of Planet X2 for the Commodore 64, copy of Planet X1 for the VIC-20 Kickstarter start date: June 04, 2018 Kickstarter funded on: July 05, 2018 Estimated delivery date: May 2019
The 8-Bit Guy, David Murray, has really interesting videos on old hardware and software. Last year he made a game called Planet X2 for the Commodore 64, and with this campaign, he’s amping it up with Planet X3 for MS-DOS.
The digital copy of the Planet X2 and X3 games were linked as a separate downloads upon the completion of X3.
The physical copy of the games arrived at my place on March 04, 2019 – exactly eight months after the Kickstarter start date. Fitting for The 8-Bit Guy! The Planet X3 box was signed with the words “Enjoy x333”, which I requested as a sort-of pun on the game’s name.
Inside the boxes were the soundtracks on cassette tape, the printed manuals, and Planet X1 and X2 on Commodore 64 diskette, with Planet X3 on a 720K floppy, and a label for the 360K floppy disk version, should I choose to produce my own copy.
I later found my name on page 15 of the Planet X3 User Manual. Very cool!

The signed postcard arrived safely in July 2018. A proper first episode of Season 2 has not been released yet, though there has since been a new short.
