A trio of virtual narratives funded using the Patreon platform… After a reader tipped me off to three virtual novels with sci-fi themes and strong furry interest being funded through Patreon,  I thought “Well, that’s a story right there!” But it looks like the bigger story is HTBH Games, the company producing (in the Hollywood sense ..
