YouTuber Videogame Dunkey starts game publishing label, promises to ‘only publish good games’

Popular YouTuber videogamedunkey has announced a brand new indie publishing label, titled BigMode Games. Dunkey is promising to use his years of experience playing games to discern and publish quality indie titles.

Despite having zero tweets, the BigMode Twitter account already boasts more than 45K followers, ensuring any game published by the label will have a fair few eyes on it. Combine this reach with Dunkey’s own 1.3M Twitter followers and more than 7M YouTube subscribers, and it adds up to a lot of online clout – though that certainly doesn’t ensure a quality game publishing experience for developers.

The publishing label is now willing to receive pitches on in-development games that require a publisher, and also wishes to hear from game developers and artists that would be available for future work.

The video game community is broadly divided on the announcement. Some see Dunkey’s claim of only publishing “good” games as an insult to other publishers, and insist he will eat those words. Others point out that having opinions on video games online does not make one a good judge of games in development.

BigMode Games has not announced any titles as of yet, and it’ll be unclear when we shall see the first game published by the label. Dunkey himself also wishes to be involved in the development of BigMode titles, but only time will tell how valuable that input will actually be.
