    Name a teacher!

    Name any teacher at Foster Hills High. My tolerance for silly names is pretty high. As long as it isn't offensive or truly ridiculous, I will allow it. If you wanna name a teacher "Seymour Buttz" please feel free. You can also give them a nice name or use your own. Get creative!

    Unnamed teachers include:
    1 x School Principal
    1 x Vice-Principal
    1 x Assistant Art Teacher
    2 x Science Teachers
    2 x Social Studies Teachers
    2 x English Teachers
    2 x Maths Teachers

    First come first served when it comes to naming the teachers! (list will be updated as teachers are named!)

    Naturally, all these teachers will not get sprites or designs made. Expect them to show up once or twice at most, exclusively via dialogue.

    [Unless you want to draw or commission a design...? We can talk about this privately ;) ]

    NOTE: NAMING A TEACHER IS EXCLUSIVE TO THIS TIER.

    Includes:
    • Name one of the listed teachers - there's a limited amount!
    • Steam/itchi.io code for the full game on release
    • Access to the premium LoveSick Darlings Discord channels
    • Access to beta and alpha builds
    • You will be credited for the teacher you named in the credits
    • My ETERNAL gratitude and love for supporting this project!

    CUSTOM SCENE!

    Wow. I can't thank you enough. You're amazing.

    For this, I will write you a scene using LoveSick Darlings characters based off of your pitch. The scene can be up to 500 words in length. This scene can be an unlockable I fit into the game, or it can be something you keep to yourself.

    I am pretty chill about this, BUT I will not do anything deemed offensive, overly-NSFW, or otherwise inappropriate/out of character. It also can't affect the main story (but may reference it). The scene can be dream-like and fantastical, or a real scenario. Whatever you like! I promise to fit it in somehow.

    DM me (@LoveSickDarling) if you want to gain approval for a pitch before pledging.

    I get final say with what content I write. I will take feedback and edit requests, but I have to emphasize that I have complete authority over what is written.

    Est. delivery is Q1 2020 for custom scenes.

    Includes:
    • A custom scene by me (as per the "custom scene" rules!)
    • Steam/itchi.io code for the full game on release
    • Your name in BIG LETTERS in a special section of the credits
    • Access to the premium LoveSick Darlings Discord channels
    • Access to beta and alpha builds
    • My ETERNAL gratitude and love for supporting this project!

    Did you just... fund the whole project?

    If someone actually does this, wow. Thank you so much. You've made my dream come true! Also, I will probably faint if I see this tier receive any backing.

    For granting me my one greatest wish, the chance to make this game, I will grant one realistic and doable wish for you that has to do with content in LoveSick Darlings. I will do my best.

    I can also list you as an "Assistant Producer" in the credits for helping fund this. You'll be a producer in name only, but aren't fancy titles fun? I think so! You can also choose a different title if you like.

    Includes:
    • One wish (as per associated rules!)
    • Your name listed a "Assistant Producer" in the credits
    • Steam/itchi.io code for the full game on release
    • Access to the premium LoveSick Darlings Discord channels
    • Access to beta and alpha builds
    • My infinite-level gratitude. Truly and deeply. Thank you.
