(Note: This post is for promotional purposes and we want to give a HUGE thank-you to all current Patrons)
This is your one-stop destination for ALL things Alice: Asylum and other projects too such as Pirate Jam, Mysterious and Oz: Adventures.
We hope you will join us and the rest of The Insane Children in The Asylum and get your voice heard in the creation of the world’s first ever crowd-designed triple-A games.
By joining us, there are a multitude of perks and bonuses you could be receiving.
So let’s take a look at some of the most popular aspects of our Patreon…
As you can see, we have 8 different tier levels.
Starting all the way down at the minimum of $1 a month which gets you access to all our posts and discussion about game design, and also the incredible art that our artists are frequently producing (more on that later).
$5 also gets you Discord access and your name displayed in our live-streams we do bi-monthly over on Twitch.
If you want to adorn your walls with our art, we have 2 tiers for that.
$35 for 3 months gets you a choice of ANY print that we have released over the last 2 years, and the mighty $75 tier gets you a print every month AND a one time Chaos Necklace.
We also frequently offer extra goodies and bonuses at these two tiers.
We now have SEVEN artists working on Alice: Asylum and Oz.
They are Joey, Jen, Alex, Omri, Norm, Dario, and Adam.
No doubt you have already seen (and been impressed by) some of their art around our various social media channels, but here’s another closer look for you.
Without artists, there is no art.
Without art, there is no business development.
Without business development, there is no Alice: Asylum.
And all this starts with the incredible support of our Patrons that allows us to hire this world class team.
3) Crowd Design
We always strive to ‘do right’ by our fans and supporters and want to be the very best at what we do while being as inclusive as possible.
This mindset is what gave birth to “Crowd Design”.
This not only encompasses the design of Alice: Asylum and Oz: Adventures in terms of creature design, weapon functionality, location aesthetics, overarching story and much more, but we also make sure that the products we bring to life are of the highest quality.
Recent examples of product Crowd Design are…
1) Enamel Pin Set
2) 2021 Calendar
3) Plushie dreadfuls
4) Embroided Patches
And that’s just a small sample of the creativity that our Insane Children bring to the table.
We have lots more to create going forwards and can’t wait to see where the collective insane hive-mind takes us.
In terms of Crowd Design on the games, it’s hard to know where to start.
We have SO MANY posts, that are now unlocked and available to read even if you’re not a Patron.
We advise just going to the front page of this Patreon and diving headfirst into everything we’ve written in the past couple of months. There’s lots of up-to-date info there about Alice, Oz and business development in general. It’s all truly fascinating!
4) Alice & Oz
The main goal we are all working towards is the creation of the 3rd Alice game.
A prequel to American McGee’s Alice and Madness Returns, called Alice: Asylum.
This game will take place in the mind of adult Alice remembering back to her 13 year old self as she attempts to unify her younger and older self and prevent…. (SPOILERS 😉
As of writing this post (November 2020), we are currently in major talks with [REDACTED] to secure the funding and rights that will allow us to make this a reality.
Sorry, we can’t say who that is just yet. All will be revealed in time.
Part of these talks with [REDACTED] also includes us diversifying our portfolio and creating more new ideas, which is where the tentatively named “Oz: Adventures” comes in.
An episodic delve into the history and mythos surrounding Oz and all the people (other than Dorothy) who have inadvertently found their way to that mysterious land.
Here’s some concept art for that from our newest artist, Adam Narozanski…
I know this was mentioned earlier, but it really is because of the support given to us by our Patrons that incredible art like this exists and allows us to show off our ideas and concepts when doing business development.
We are truly thankful for all the support and belief that our Insane Children continue to show us.
So what are you waiting for?
Join the Asylum today.
You’re mad if you don’t, but insane if you do…
