I decided to start a Patreon campaign to help finance the game. The link to the campaign is https://www.patreon.com/dateariane and like most Patreon campaigns, I want to make it worth your money.
Right now, signing up for a $5 a month “dater” tier subscription or higher will get you access to an alpha version of the first 20% or so of Ariane in Paradise, and I hope to release more chunks of the game on that site each month.
There are two other tiers: $1 “Watcher”, which I have posted 110 pictures, most not available anywhere, and a $20 “Producer” tier that will get you in the games credits.
Eventually I will release Ariane in Paradise to the public for free, but Patreon supporters are likely going to get first dibs. So if you can help out, I would really appreciate it!
