Niche Gamer Patreon February 2015 Update

Hey, Niche Gamer Nation. This is our February 2015 Patreon update, courtesy of yours truly.

Apologies for how awful I sound, I’m still recovering from an illness I caught from the Game Developers Conference. The TL;DR version of our spendings for February 2015: it all went towards the purchase of the domain, s3-us-west-2.amazonaws.com/nichegamer, from which you’re now enjoying the website.

We also brought on a Japanese-to-English translator, Claude Smith, whose work you’ve been enjoying already. We’re trying to be smart with our spending, making smart choices to help us grow both as a news outlet, but also as a provider of original media content.

As we iron out the kinks with our production, our scheduling, and so on, these updates should get closer to the beginning of the following month.

We hide nothing from you guys, and without your support, we couldn’t have gotten as big as we are today. If you haven’t already considered funding us on Patreon (or even a one-time donation), please visit our donation page.

    You can really feel an uptick in quality and quantity recently! Between the new staff, increase of content put out and the wider variety of article types, Nichegamer’s feeling a lot more lively. Keep up the good work guys!
