FAQ

Who is Brain&Brain?

We're a married developer duo, best known for our colorful folktale adventure Burly Men at Sea. David is the programmer, Brooke is the artist, with some overlap on writing and design. You can read more about us here.

Why the "supporters-only" content?

Our behind-the-scenes posts are bonus content created exclusively for the generous folks supporting our work. We also share secret work-in-progress with supporters before our projects are public.

Okay, how do I become a supporter?

Simple! Just sign up here as a $1/mo member, and you're in. You'll have immediate access to our full archive of locked posts and new supporters-only content as we publish it.

We also invite you to join our Discord, where you'll have access to our supporters-only channels. (DM us there, and we'll add your supporter role!)

The blog and memberships are powered by Ghost, and payments are processed securely via Stripe.

What if I change my mind?

That's okay! You can cancel anytime from your account, or contact us if you have questions. You're still welcome to read the good stuff before you go.

Why not use Patreon?

We did! But we decided to transition away so that we could self-host. Not only does that give us full ownership of our content and how it's presented, it means your support goes straight to us, with no one else taking a cut.

We haven't yet closed down our Patreon, as Ghost is still working on some additional features we need. Our roadmap:

  1. WIP posts. We've begun sharing 🌧 work-in-progress art and animation here, currently available only to supporters. Coming soon: older WIP from Wooden Nickel, available to free members of the blog.
  2. More tiers. For the moment, our higher tier content, such as downloads and process videos, are available only on our Patreon. Ghost is working to add this feature, so we hope to move them here soon.
  3. Supporters-only discussion. Ghost doesn't include a built-in commenting system, but we have plans to add this to our supporters-only posts.
