Client Reviews For Crowdfunding Consultant Work

I've been working as a crowdfunding consultant for over 2 years now, doing both short term and long term consultant work for projects. I have had the pleasure of working with over 100 different crowdfunding campaigns and their creators, helping them develop and polish their projects for success.

There's a lot to keep in mind when running a crowdfunding project, and it's always good practice to have multiple eyes look over things every step of the way. Though not all of these projects were successfully funded, as no one can guarantee that, (and anyone who does is most likely a scam), but all of them benefited greatly from my feedback and suggestions.

Collected here are over 30 reviews from past clients, all of which have been most satisfied, if not glowing in their review of my services! I invite you to check them out below!


"It's super awesome when you get someone with experience and a fresh pair of eyes to look over your site. I'v already implemented three of his suggestions and haven't even had his review for 5 minutes."
"Highly recommend. Anyone creating a crowdfunding project should use this service. Not only did he pick up on some of the little details of the video, but also found a couple of things that I missed. Will hire again for sure."

For Fun Fanart of SCP-305

I've recently gotten into a creative writing community online focused around a secret organization that works to protect life as we know it from bizarre and dangerous, other worldly objects and entities that would upset our day to day lives. From giant unkillable humanoids to everyday household items with unusual properties, they secure, contain and protect them from us and us from them. At least, the organization this community writes about does.

Recently it was brought up that we often see fan art of the same beings drawn again and again and that other unknowns get no love. Thus a new monthly challenge was cooked up and an underdog selected to get a chance in the spot light. I was too slow to get my drawing in for the contest, (didn't start it until well after the deadline) but I wanted to complete it anyways.

SCP-305 was picked because the description gives us an image but isn't completely locked down. It's some sort of humanoid shaped rock formation that has cracks in it and occasionally moves and might have something imprisoned inside it.

Here is the drawing I did one night this weekend in my free time:


And here is the revision I did in the morning after looking over it and seeing what all I didn't like about it. Got some feedback online and made some changes. I am much happier with the final version, which I also animated:



Pushed for darker shadows and brighter highlights and played around with the volume on the stones. Tried to lessen the black cracks/lines I originally was going with but could never quite remove them as I felt it helped define the stones better. Added an eye to the crack because I thought that was the easiest way to hint there is something in there that we don't want to get out.

Anyways, haven't been updating this blog as much as I want to just because life is lemons right now, but I'm keeping things moving and hopefully will have more to update here soon! Also, apparently I'm too cool to proof read my posts at times! Not really sure how many people read this anyways, but oh well.

This War of Mine, video game trailer

"This War of Mine" is a new video game coming out that at the very least present a truly unique twist on a dog tired setting for modern video games. If you haven't watched the above video, or heard anything about it, I'll cut right to the core here for ya. It's set during a modern war taking place in a far off country, but you don't play as a soldier, just as a civilian trapped in them middle of it all.


"This War Of Mine is a game that provides an experience of war seen from an entirely new angle. For the very first time you do not play as an elite soldier, rather a group of civilians trying to survive in a besieged city. During the day snipers outside stop you from leaving your refuge, so you need to focus on maintaining your hideout. At night you get a chance to scavenge nearby locations for items that will help you stay alive.

Make life-and-death decisions driven by your conscience. Try to protect everybody from your shelter or sacrifice some of them to endure the hardships. During war, there are no good or bad decisions; there is only survival. The sooner you realize that, the better.

Join This War Of Mine community at http://www.thiswarofmine.com for more articles, interviews and videos and at https://www.facebook.com/thiswarofmine"


Again, at the very least, this promises to offer a new take on a tried and true game setup. I'm interested to see how this plays out, how much it challenges, how many tropes it can flip. Should be a different experience and an experiment in gameplay mechanics. Personally, I can't wait for it.

FAM Radio Episode 02 posted


Well episode 02 of my Foundation After Midnight Radio series is up online now for all your listening, (and viewing), pleasure. We started this in hopes of making it a podcast, but then ran into complications with getting it on iTunes, then I realized I could at least make a little pocket change from running ads on it from my Youtube channel, so for the time being, this is a Youtube based, podcast? series. Or something.

Took over a month to get this out, but that's more because of life than anything. Hoping to move forward with episode 03 faster and have that done and up before the end of the month. That's about a week and a half and I'm pretty confident I can make that happen.

Big thanks to everyone who has listened in and checked us out. We really appreciate it and hope you continue to enjoy the work! More FAM Radio to come, honest!

Horror Games Aren't Just About Shooting Monsters

Horror survival games seem to have all become action sequences and quick time events to avoid gory death animations.Guess games are having just a much trouble as movies are when it comes to sticking to the formula that made the genre so popular. Can you imagine a survival horror game where you don't see the monster for most of the time? Or one where you are not fully prepared to face the monster head on?

Stuff like Amnesia comes to mind, though most AAA title games claiming to be part of the horror genre have more things in common with action shooters than survival stealth games. Let's exercise some creative juices and brain storm up a suspenseful new horror game for players to try to survive through shall we? Well, I will anyways, guess you're just along for the ride now, huh?

Let's take start with some familiar horror genre settings, some small country village, with a lot of history, and a lot of dark secrets. Picture "The Shadow Over Innsmouth" or the village setting for Resident Evil 4 to get a feel for where I'm going with this. Some old town lost in time, with villagers who keep to themselves and don't go out at night anymore, as there have been brutal murders lately. People taken from their own homes, torn to pieces as if by wild animals, strange symbols are turning up, painted on walls, smeared in blood on doors sometimes, and so on. Just from the setting players know nothing good is happening in this place.

Now to make things dramatic and add some more tension. Let's set up the player as a character who is visiting a friend in the village. This friend is a father, we'll name him Alin, whose only son and living family, has gone missing. Tragedy took his wife and daughter away from him years ago, leaving him to scrape out a living raising his son alone. To beginning the search for Alin's son, players are directed to investigate the house and ask nearby locals. Most of them shrug by, ignoring questions or refusing to talk with Alin or the player, until eventually someone waves him into their house. Here we meet Alin's son, Marian, though I'll warn you not to get too attached.

Alin warns Marian that such behavior will only bring him harm and he needs to be more careful, slowly letting out some hints as to what is going on in the village. Finally Alin seems to relax a little and dive deeper into the mystery of what is taking place in the shadows. Abruptly the conversation is interrupted as a strange and grotesque creature comes smashing through a window, throwing Marian out of sight and hobbling after you. Frantically trying to get away, the player finds the doors are blocked from the outside and won't open. Through the windows Alin and the player can see the villagers gathered around, watching, waiting, as the blood thirsty creature inside closes in for the kill. Eventually, the creature is killed using whatever can be found at hand in the house. Before the player can fully recover, the monster's body disintegrates and the villagers depart, allowing free range of the village once more.

To be continued.
