I have never been directly involved with the creation or publication of any videogame. However, I have backed the following gaming-related Kickstarter campaigns:
Double Fine Adventure
Dragged Away: A Night to Remember
Spaceteam Admiral's Club Relaunch
'Sup, Holmes? Season 3
And previously supported one gaming-related Patreon:
Phil and Spencer
I also follow and am followed by some indie game developers on Twitter, and am friends with a few on Facebook. And given that I am a videogame fan first and foremost, I've been known to sing the praises of the games and developers I like, but I will always endeavor to disclose any relationship (however insignificant) I may have with the people involved with the creation of said game in the event that I write about them. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask.

A baby-sized replica of my own pink robe!
Like father, like daughter?
I'd say so!
COM 01, I've thanked you several times already, but I can't say it enough: this is one of the nicest things anyone has ever done for me. You are truly a talented, kind soul, and Corduroy Turtle absolutely does not deserve you!
Thanks so much!
