Hello, Critical Distance readers!
I’m pleased to announce that as of today, you can directly lend your support to Critical Distance through our Patreon page.
Critical Distance has existed as a free publication since its inception in 2009. On a weekly basis we have brought to you dozens of links to the most interesting writing and commentary about games around the web, entirely through the efforts of our hard-working volunteers.
Now, in addition to maintaining that tradition, we want to turn C-D into the definitive archival resource for writing about games. We have been working on a wiki for several months which is almost ready to launch, and have plans outlined for several projects, including a cross-referenced tagging system, a job board, and even a print anthology. But to get anywhere with any of these ideas, we need your help.
The goal of our Patreon page is twofold. First, it is to ensure that I can commit full-time as the senior editor of the site. I’ll then be able to start bringing in people to expand Critical Distance’s horizons and launch a full-on, archival effort — one which can properly compensate everyone for the time they put in.
We will soon be setting up a Supporters Page to thank all of our contributors. Please help us make this site as great as it can be by visiting our Patreon page and clicking the ‘Become a Patron’ button. You can even earn exclusive cat pictures!
Whether you join us as a patron or just signal-boost the link among your peers, we thank you from the bottom of our cybernetic hearts for your support! Thank you!
