Seeds of Chaos releases Patreon demo

Developer Venus Noire released a demo for their adult visual novel RPG Seeds of Chaos, which is available via donation through Patreon. They are currently focused on raising funds in order to continue developing the game. Leet Music assisted with composition of 8 tracks for the demo. It was a really fun, enjoyable project to work in this dark, strange fantasy style.

Seeds of Chaos is a free to play dark fantasy eroge made in Ren’py, inspired by the worldbuilding of Berserk, Dark Souls, The Witcher and other epic fantasy series’, as well as the adult games Corruption of Champions, Legend of Queen Opala, and Slavemaker. The game is set in The Six Realms, the westernmost continent in the world of Solanse. Seven years have passed since the last Demon War, and the defeat of Lord Karnas at the hands of the forces of Light ushered in a new era of peace and prosperity for all the races of the six kingdoms. Evil never lies dormant for long, however, and in the shadows new threats to the tenuous peace begin to stir.

In the first scenario, you play as Rowan, a veteran of the last Demon War. He and his fellow heroes, aided by the Goddess of Light, pursued Karnas to the heart of his stronghold, Castle Bloodmeen, and defeated him once and for all. Having hung up his sword upon returning to his peaceful home village and marrying his childhood sweetheart, Alexia, he finds his idyllic life shattered by the arrival of a beautiful, mysterious woman. Before he knows it, he is forced to serve the very darkness he fought to destroy seven years ago.

Tunecore account reaches 1 million streaming plays

As confirmed by LeetStreet Boys, my Tunecore account has passed 1 million streaming plays through Spotify and similar services. Congratulations on this large number milestone!

How much is a million?

There’s been a lot of discussion about the pay for music streaming in the news. Does streaming help or hurt artists? What is fair pay? etc. I am offering an informal contest where anyone can guess how much revenue my 1 million streams has generated. The winner will be awarded a free song from my catalog. Feel free to guess in the comments, or by email or private message.

Spoiler: I don’t consider the earning from streaming to be enough money to finance making a 10 song album, let alone paying the cost of living for an artist.
