The Rickety Stitch Patreon is Live!

The Best Way to Support Rickety Stitch

(And get some crazy awesome rewards)

For the past several years, the Rickety Stitch and the Gelatinous Goo graphic novel series has been growing. The first two books, Rickety Stitch and the Gelatinous Goo: The Road to Epoli and Rickety Stitch and the Gelatinous Goo: The Middle-Route Run have both gotten some wonderful feedback and inspired us to continue on with the third book in the series, scheduled to release next year. But there’s so much more we want to share.

The world of Rickety Stitch is an expansive one and goes far deeper than what’s on the printed page. And we want to share more of it with you. That’s why we’re launching our brand new Patreon. So we can share oodles of new art, conceptual designs, Lore that helps develop the world of Eem, and even a Podcast and Rickety Stitch Role Playing Game (something we’re particularly excited about).

Patreon is the best way to support the expansion of Rickety Stitch and some of the exclusive benefits are going to be super exciting to share with all of you. Your small contribution unlocks exciting rewards that you’ll get exclusive access to. In fact, here’s a breakdown of the reward tiers.

Patreon Reward Tiers

Only $2 or more per month.

  •  Access to sketches, work-in-progress pages, and concept art

You’ll get exclusive access to the making of Rickety Stitch Book 3 and be the first to see new art, characters, and learn about plot elements (no spoilers!). You’ll also get to see sketches and concept art from previous books.

If you’re a fan of Rickety Stitch you’ve probably seen the expansive library of Lore that was released in conjunction with Book 1: The Road to Epoli. Well, contributing to Tier 2: Dungeoneers is a great way get access to brand new lore for Book 2: The Middle-Route Run, Book 3, as well as the Rickety Stitch Role Playing Game!

We’ll give you a sneak peak into the behind the scenes creation of our new RPG, a game that we’re designing to reward creative play, all while keeping with the continuity of the Rickety Stitch series. What does that mean? It means that each RPG adventure module we make will be a canon, world-building story that you can play out any way you want.

Dungeoneer patrons also get access to our Podcast, where we’ll talk shop about what inspired us, give our takes on new stuff, as well as talk about our experiences growing up together as friends for over 25 years.
