A new company, Clockwork Throne, has opened up a Patreon page for interested backers to pledge monthly support for the creation of a vampire-themed MMO called Shadow's Kiss. In addition to taking inspiration from classic mythology and folktales, Clockwork Throne will also be looking at more modern themes including Vampire Chronicles, True Blood, the Lost Boys, Buffy & Angel.
Patreon lets you be a patron of the arts, and pledge an amount of money, large or small, to artists and creators. In turn, we give you unique art, regular updates, design input, and even NSFW variants of some of our signature pieces, if you so desire. It's a brave new paradigm, where instead of big publishers dropping large sums of money, you, the enthusiasts, support cool ideas and art, often with the equivalent cash outlay of a Starbucks latte.
