MADISON, Wis. — YouTuber Jason Gastrow, better known as videogamedunkey, announced Wednesday night that he and his wife are starting their own video game publishing company called BIGMODE and are looking for people who can code or come up with game ideas.
“All I do is play video games. I like video games. That’s why it’s time for me to start manufacturing video games. Because who better to start creating video games than someone who plays them a lot? So if you know how to make a video game and have an idea for a video game, message me right now,” Dunkey said in his announcement. “I’m looking for idea guys, I’m looking for code guys, I’m looking for art guys, I’m looking for cool guys, and I’m looking for guys who know how to apply to have games on consoles because it seems a bit If Nintendo isn’t going to hire this man, then videogamedunkey has to do it himself.
The announcement video was praised by many Dunkey fans.
“As someone who also plays a lot of video games, I think this is a great opportunity for anyone making them,” said fan Conrad Hammond. “Dunkey’s video did a great job of showing that he’s the perfect man for the job, given that he brought to light so many indie gems no one had heard of, like hollow knight and Super Mario Odyssey. Maybe I’ll send in an application as an idea guy! »
“I’m pretty excited about it, to be honest,” said indie developer Jessie Rowe. “I’m currently going the ConcernedApe route with my game, which is to say I literally do everything on my own. And I’d probably pay money to have Dunkey do a 10 minute video about my game , so yeah, I’d be more than happy if the arrangement was the other way around. Otherwise, I’m going to have to learn how to use TikTok and I really don’t want to dance to pictures in my game.”
Despite the positive comments, the YouTuber also received criticism from those in the Xenoblade Chronicles 3 community.
“Dunkey? This guy who’s famous for falsely criticizing Xenoblade Chronicles 3? How could he start a video game publishing company when he can’t even learn to enjoy it Xenoblade Chronicles 3? For my money the best kind of game is Xenoblade Chronicles 3, so if he doesn’t like this game, he’s already off to a disastrous start,” Twitter user @XenobladeChroniclesBrie said. “If he ever publishes a video game, I swear to spoil the ending in a video. Because at the end of the day, I’m the girl with the nerve.
As of press time, many would-be guys would have been pissed off to find out that BIGMODE isn’t accepting submissions from guys whose idea is to make a video game that features NFTs.
