Queer Games & Fiction for a Better World
Hi, my name is Josh Roby and I make books and games and things.
My patreon, like my creative output, is a grab-bag of various endeavors. I write fiction, I code browser-based video games, I design tabletop roleplaying games. A little bit of this, a little bit of that.
Here's a few of my projects that you can download right now:
The Vicious Crucible of Verdigris Valley, a ready-to-play RPG, complete with integrated characters, setting, and plot
Citizen Swords against the Ogre King, a turn-based tactics video game you can play in your browser
The Young Conductors, a short story about queer kids smuggling each other out of a country that is no longer safe
If there's anything that unifies all the things I do, it's themes more than media.
It may sound trite, but I'm really interested in stories and games that are about making the world a better place. I don't know about you, but I'm more than a little tired of hard-eyed men who are going to wreak revenge on badguys by using their guns and their difficulty expressing emotions. Yawn! Give me a builder with a plan over a loose cannon with a grudge any day of the week. And since that's what I want to see, that's what I make.
I am also keenly motivated to produce media that forwards queer and gender-expansive representation. It took me a long while to get here. I spent years thinking I had to make things that were a little queer, acceptably queer. But I'm done with hiding on the outskirts. The stuff I make now, and the stuff I'll release here, is unrelentingly queer. That's just how I roll.
Lastly, I aim to make accessible media for everybody. This is what drew me to roleplaying games in the first place, and what delights me about making video games for web browsers. No fancy consoles necessary for this fun! Nearly everything I release through Patreon is freely accessible, for anybody who can get at it.
I'm aiming to release one or two different things a month: a short story and a video game level, maybe, or a little puzzle game and a RPG scenario, or the like.
If you'd like to help me make more stuff like that, I will happily accept your generous patronage! The patronage I receive here lets me do more, make more, release more. Thank you so much for helping to make that happen!
