Videogamedunkey Launches New Indie Game Publisher
YouTuber Videogamedunkey has announced another indie game publisher known as BIGMODE. The indie scene is growing increasingly more in gaming with platforms offering greater visibility to creators. Of course, on the Xbox 360 there was an entire section for indie games, but a lot of them were pretty barebones and lacked any kind of distinguishing features, save for a couple. As time has gone on, Xbox and PlayStation have tried to work all the more closely with indie developers to highlight their work and bring some of the most promising games to these consoles. Indies are taken far more seriously now and the artistry sometimes shows that even a small team can make something worthy of a game of the year contender.
To assist indie games with finding their audience, YouTuber Jason ‘Videogamedunkey’ Gastrow and his significant other, Leah, have started an indie game publisher known as BIGMODE. The aim of the publisher is to support original, tomfoolery, and quality indie games and will actually want to assist with funding, merchandising, PR, development support, and more. The website for BIGMODE also notes that it won’t be assisting games that feature crypto, NFTs, or blockchain. The site also includes a place to network, allowing those in the gaming industry the opportunity to get involved with BIGMODE’s efforts. As of right now, BIGMODE has not announced any projects, but it’s reasonable the publisher will get a ton of opportunities in the coming weeks given Videogamedunkey’s reach. The creator released a YouTube video detailing his reasons for creating the publisher and noted that he doesn’t want to have creative control over anyone’s games.
As of right now, it remains to be seen what will happen to this publisher. Will BIGMODE publish the next enormous indie game? Who can say for sure! However, it’s exciting to see someone using their platform in such a strong and positive way. Videogamedunkey seems to be a major believer in indie games, so he’ll certainly have an eye for exciting projects.
