I believe for most players its the story progress that is the most important aspect of the game, not necessary how much you can dress up the characters. Kinda feels like the game get turned into something else, but that is the creators choice. Nevery really understod the extra pampering for higher tier supporters on Patreon either. I thought people would support you with what they feelt like based on actual progress and achievements of the creator. (and what they could afford). Imho, make something great, and likely to get the support deserved.
