So, I'm wondering. Would anyone care to watch me – very much not a pro, but an enthusiast who has played a lot (depending on your definition) of Zork and Myst in my time – play classic DOS point-and-click adventure games on ? Maybe even help me out a bit over the chat when I get stuck, if you like? Monkey Island, stuff like that.

Is there any interest for that out there? (hashtag inspired by @gargron's twitch talk)

However those pledges are anonymous, and I cannot put your name on the sponsors page or unlock Discord access based on that. I really wish Liberapay at least allowed *those* things.

This is a really important time to push free and open source alternatives to ! I've considered using @Liberapay, but was afraid I had to use Patreon to get the network effect.

Please tell people about , post about it on Reddit (r/patreon), vote it up on Alternativeto, etc
