It is heart-warming to see the inspiring stories of people that walk out of League of Legends. Thank you, Dunkey
@Bromuzl It became what World of Warcraft did a long time ago - a colorful chatroom to spare time with your peers. I don't think the community would even want for the game to become "better".There is no difference to the state of both games - community is so used to the low standard that, at this point, if Riot tried to make drastic changes it would yield negative results for their wallets. That being said, I hope to see you all back in the nostalgia trip on the release of "League of Legends: Classic - Mists of the Crystal Scar" and "League of Legends: Classic - The Wrath of the Twisted Treeline".
@Grayson League certainly won't be getting better even if you stayed. Better to drop the dead weight and find a more rewarding multiplayer experience for your time.
If the first game is a turn based farming sim, this will be Dunkey’s greatest joke yet.
turn based strand-type farming sim
@Ruy Guys, ruy specifically said he watches Dunkey's vids. So pointing out one of Dunkeys latest vids won't help. Ya'll need to use something like crayons and only picture explanations. or maybe one of those animal sound audio books to help ruy out.
Turn-based ANIME farm sim, get it right
@Ruy check his latest state of play vid. He goes between sony and nintendo announcements where allot if the nintendo stuf looks like 3D stardew valley knockoffs.
honestly a turn based farming sim would be cool as fuck as a multiplayer thing, where you could fuck with your friends crops and theres nothing they can do about it until it becomes their turn again.
it really makes you feel like you're actually a Publishing Company
@Peter Rogers (poops) (Comes)
@Big Chunky But.. but we need validation from repeating overused phrases to compensate for the lack of critical thinking. How else are we supposed to get our dopamine kick ? 😫😫😫 * anxiety overload * 😫😫😫
ign gotta hire this man
@adsaa shutup with the morbius jokes
That time when he said "it's bigmode time" I was losing myself. Literally one of the most game developers ever...
I have purchased many indie games based on dunks recommendations and haven't regretted a single one. Same as I have seen dunkey praise some of my favorite indie titles years after their release.I love this idea. I just hope it works out for Leah and dunk.
☝☝Congratulations fan! I've got something special for you, Send a message at the above telegram name to acknowledge your prize
This is god damned fantastic. I love the idea of a real fan running a publishing company. I wish you guys nothing but the best.
“I understand what kind of ideas always work”*shows a grapple hook*accurate
How many pots does he break in this reveal trailer though
Funny pinaple man
@John Epton Huh. I can see how that would be a bit annoying maybe in the menu, but the quick crafting system in Horizon Zero Dawn isnt too unlike the reload time for a regular FPS. I see it as part of balancing what weapons and gadgets you create
shows splatoonme: God bless
a grapple hook a day keeps soulslike away
In all seriousness, don't let the psychos on Twitter get you down. There's a lot of us who are rooting for you!
twitter isnt a real place
@adribier yeah, but as far as I understand, dunkey supposedly postet a late game spoiler pic on twitter, thats where the rage comes from. But then again, you shouldn’t be on twitter or any social media for that matter if you wanna avoid spoilers.
@Fossegrim lmao every dunkey's review has some spoiler or another, I thought that was common knowledge
They shouldnt have made that game in the first place lol
I'm so happy that Dunkley has decieded to throw his hat into the ring of publishing! Dunkey has always been one of the most genuine and honest creators on YT and you can tell how passionate he is about this project. Here's to the future Dunkley! I have high hopes for you and Lia!
Sent in my portfolio. Hearing about your creative journey inspired me to make shit, and as a result, I see myself getting better all the time, honing more and more into my creative voice. Whether this is my time or this is my rejection letter phase, a bigmode thank you goes out to you, mista dunk.
You won a prize 🎁,dm 👆 for it🎉🎉...
It feels as though everything touched by Dunkey gets enriched, and/ or enjoyable to some extent, and I am so happy to see this announcement. The man is clearly Midas's descendant churning out gold standard quality. I very much look forward to an era of "BIGMODE PUBLISHED GAMES" and all the positivity it shall bring starting from the both of you.
how it plays out!
Big Mode has not released a single bad game yet. Truely the best gaming company of all time
i love you
I've been watching Dunkey for 10 years and never once liked or commented on a video. But this... this is truly deserved, this is Dunkey's destiny, his true calling to bringing something better to the world. Let Dunkey infect you with his brilliance, let him join the next era of gaming!
@Tom Bombadill I have no other choice but to offer you my respect.
@Zach Dude The only video I have ever liked on RUclips is the 10 hour video of taking the hobbits to Isengard. This will be my most valuable contribution.
I love hearing stories about how Devolver Digital were just a handful of people working from home mostly getting to know developers remotely while having no offfices or corporate bs to worry about. Dunkey has social media presence and a platform to advertise games through already, I sincerely hope this works out well since it will feel a hell of a lot better for someone who knows games over the usual AAA publisher that only know business and couldn't care less if the game were good as long as it makes money.
I genuinely want this to succeed, not only because it will be fucking amazing if it does, but to spite every fucking troll who feeds off of negativity who is acting like a fucking parasite.
Of course this is the next steps after Dunkey achieved 10k hours on 'studying' games. Obviously.I believed Dunkey will hold to his principles. For anybody who forgets, he proved that when Microsoft asked him to review their shitty games, even tho he had no money to pay rent due to his shitty employees, he still put out an honest review, and of course never got paid by MS.
I can't believe the guy who has the world record on Bowser's Big Bean Burrito is making his own games company!!! Will any of us even be able to beat them?
@DonKx so, more like Steam?
@DonKx so a publishing company...
No chance 😎
@DonKx how can you try to correct somebody and still get it completely wrong
Dunkey said: I will have to do it myself
You're going to be the best thing that happened to the publishing industry in years. Whatever happens, that will always be true, even if the people in the industry don't realise it.
Dunkey, as long as you stay authentic to your own brand, you’re going to do great. Best of luck to you.
This is the best W I’ve seen on the internet for a while now, congrats Dunkey, and I hope this means more developers will be able to outshine the industry’s greed.
If Dunkey really likes a game there is usually a 90% chance I'm going to buy it. He really has a good eye for great games that are indie.
Lucky winner🎉🎉dm👆 for prize... 🎁🎁
Genuinely don’t understand why you’re getting hate for this. This rules, this is the smart move from RUclipsr.
I'm so on board for this. I'll be playing *all* of Dunkey's published videos. All the detractors are confusing development with publishing. Dunk, as an indie publisher, just has to see what developer's have already got and decide whether it's good or not. This is gonna be sick for consumers. He's right 100%
"I quit playing League of Legends" is dunkey's America's Got Talent story.
Been following you since your Cho Graph video. I'm usually pretty cynical when it comes to anything business related, but if you say you're gonna do something I believe it. Best of luck to you and Leah. Show em what a real donkey can do.
Best of luck. With huge corporations swallowing up all of the studios these days, I feel that this is something truly necessary for continued progress. Looking forward to seeing how it plays out!
@No Life Alex lmao my thoughts exactly
Blah blah corporation evil go communism blah blah
You go dude, we all got your back! 🤗
@KevinE Yes, because that was the only major studio acquisition to ever happen. Some of us weren't zygotes when MS bought Rare, too
Man, I had to comback after seeing all the twitter drama. I HOPE BEEG MODE GOES BIG MODE! Much love dunkey.
I'm so happy that you guys are taking this big step! I may not have been a day one subscriber to this channel, but from the first video I had watched from you, I knew that your content and your perspective/analysis on games was and is genuine. I really look up to you Dunkey, as a gamer and a person (even if I may not know you personally). Can't wait to see what amazing things come out of your company!
I actually have SOOO much faith in Dunkey’s taste and I’m really excited to see where this could go.
So pumped to see how well this turns out for everyone involved! Love you guys
"Please note: We are not accepting any games that use NFTs, crypto or blockchain."Praise dunkey, such an excellent move. I can't wait to see what gets published xx
@Genesis8629 or just pirate the game lmao
@Genesis8629 This is not the reason multi-billion-dollar finance companies are pushing NFT games so hard lmao, are you a shill or just a dupe?
"Please note: We are interested in making games, not platforms for separating dupes, kids, and people with addictions from their money. Crypto Bros are poisonous leeches."
@Genesis8629 NFTs alone won't allow you to digital trading since you need a separate system that ensures that access is given only to the 'real owner' of the NFT, and you can do that without NFTs. Unless you are suggesting making the entire fucking compiled code of the game an NFT, which is unfeasible afaik ("NFT images" are normally just a pointer--a URL--to a image file on a server).Ownership of digital media is cool. NFT is not how you achieve it.
Very excited about this. May be some of the best news in the industry in years.Ive always looked to Dunky for real reviews on games and games worth playing that i may not have heard about. To know that hes activley going to be helping bring great games to fruition is something i think all gamers should be excited about.
Honestly so excited to see where this goes, we need more publishers who actually give a shit. Best of luck to you guys on this endeavour.
Amount of sheer awesome positivity oozing from this announcement made me smile all over.
So hype for the Kill Butt series! Paul Creenis is such a talented dev
Thanks for commenting,I gat something for you🎁🎁DM the telegram above👆..
I've never wanted a company to succeed so badly. And I used to own a company.
@Bada Bing Why do you assume it failed? He could as easily have sold it for a pay-out, which is the exit strategy for the vast majority of entrepreneurs and start-ups.
@Ginsu131 you underestimate the nested layers of layers, my friend
@Ginsu131 This made me laugh out loud
no wonder your company failed
I've enjoyed your videos for years and during the time I've done my education to become a animator & game developer. Always thought that I'd at least send you a copy of whatever game I end up working on as thanks for the years of entertainment and insights you've brought all of us. Hope we get the change to collaborate in the future.
dunkey, i just want to say, thank you, as someone who waits and waits and waits for that 1 or 2 really good games to come out every year, i am really looking forward to this
☝☝Congratulations fan! I've got something special for you, Send a message at the above telegram name to acknowledge your prize.
I've been a fan for so many years, I wish from the bottom of my heart that you succeed, I am so proud of both of you good luck dunkey
Insanely impressed! What an amazing undertaking. I can’t wait to see games come out of Big Mode that are elevated to the next level. Go get ‘em Dunkey!!
This man went from shitposting on Newgrounds to becoming an indie publisher, this truly is only accomplished by someone like Dunkey
@Mr indie fan As soon as a publisher gets involved, a developer is not independent anymore. Sure, there are degrees of dependence, but it's still dependence.
@M. B. Having a publisher doesn't erase you from being an indie, being OWNED by a publisher does but that is a different situation.
@M. B. It's just an anachronism of sorts. It means a publisher that's solely working with more independent devs
from making videos with paperbatvg to an indie publisher
jeff kaplan went from raging gamer nerd to vp director of blizzard like wtf
I always felt like RUclips didn’t reward content creators enough for the quality of content; only the quantity watched. It’s good to see you build this on the respect you’ve earned from your viewers. Good luck mate - can’t wait to see what drops first.
I was hesitant to click on this because I thought it was going to be a parody you were making but someone said you actually were doing it so here I am, and I am extremely happy for you, and Leah to be doing this. I'm so excited. The moment I can figure out how to find, and follow you as a Publisher on Steam I will do it. For now I will just bookmark, and check the site every so often.
We need more representation of gamers by real gamers themselves instead of soulless companies like Microsoft, Dunkey is a modern genius. Way to go, buddy!
Dunkey once again proving he’s a genius making a Frog Type Indie Game Company ahead of all the Frog Type Games on the horizon!
@John McFadin i emerge victorious, which means BigMode is now MINE
Horizon was a Zero Frog Type Game
Going BLACKMODE will be a sucess Dunkey.
@Protip Well you know how things are, some people are just never going to be ready for a game about frogs loving frogs. Perhaps that's all the more reason to create the game, though...
But at the same time calling Frog Detective spam ain't right. Maybe he's just trying to take down his frog competition since they were at the forefront.
Great! I can’t wait to play more crowd funded, 16-bit style Metroidvania wannabes. Totally fresh and new concept! Not an exhausted genre at all! Don’t forget the Souls-like tag! See ya on Kickstarter.
Having lost faith in almost every big gaming company the last few years, this, this gives me hope 🙏
I love this idea!I just heard about the unfortunate twitter backlash. Just know that your real fans support you whole heartedly! ❤️
This is some of the most exciting news I have seen all year. Thank you dunkey
i appreciate anyone who commits time, dedication and resources to the future and betterment of the industry. as a game developer myself, thank you dunkey for using your platform in this way.
"Now if only his Dinkey could go BigMode"-girl with voice of a child
I love that you put stray in this
@GT2000 A fair assessment, I'd say. While I'm naturally on the side of the fence with Daniel's skepticism, I'm all for eating my words if an up and coming developer does something good, and proves suspicion wrong.Gotta take chances!
@a namer here bro get your boring ass politics out of here this is a video game review channel of course he won’t denounce trump it’s irrelevant to the topic at hand. Sure trump sucks but just because someone doesn’t denounce trump doesn’t mean anything
Unironically I feel like Skibi's Tower Defense from WC3 is a higher quality product that 95% of the stuff they've put out over the last 5-10 years.
I love to see you and Leah reach your dreams!!! Wishing you two the best 💙 I believe in you both!!
I don't have a lot of faith in Donkey's ability to guide a game to completion, but for people who are confident in their skills, having your launch trailer and first gameplay footage on a 7 million sub channel that regularly goes ultra viral is worth the price of admission.
So long as you publish Knack 3 and Hogan's Castle, I'm extremely excited about this.
Dunkey is the realest gamer of all time, so I'm looking forward to seeing him help publish the realest games of all time
Yes he definitely deserves this!
"bbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb BIG MODE"
Dunkey continues to be the most underappreciated youtuber, no amount of praise will ever be enough
He has 7 million subscribers
I love you for using your resources and platform to do something like this. I hope this inspires other content creators who have gained a surplus of money to do something like this as well or at least invest into others who are.
I am so proud of dunkey and bee. I am so happy to be an OG fan. 11 MORE YEARS!!!
This is awesome, I’m really looking forward to seeing what you guys will be working on. Despite the lightheartedness and goofy humor I seriously think Dunkey is a brilliant critic and has offered some wonderful insight and commentary on the game industry. Hearing that he and Leah want to get more involved with game development is something I’ve been wanting for a long time.
I hope Dunkey doesn't get discouraged over the twitter trolls who really want this company to fail for some odd reason. I absolutely cannot wait to see what y'all have in store!
@Newtybot yes but you don't have to point that out, the word 'troll' is the differentiator, he didn't say the people on Twitter he said the trolls on Twitter
@swisserty That's just life. He can't be the same person, making videos until the end of time; of course he would want to branch out and try something new. It literally sounds like you want it to fail for your own enjoyment and nothing else
@Dr. Philth no you don’t get it, we do not associate with the tumblr refugee psychopaths
@Newtybotin this context "Twitter trolls" implies Trolls on Twitter not everyone on Twitter is a troll.
I would appreciate if you didn’t call them “Twitter” trolls. We don’t like those kinds of people on Twitter, either
The people who want to see this fail I’m pretty sure are the same people who give passing grades to barely functional games: game journalists, who suck the deez of gaming companies only interested in increasing their short term stock value who pay these bottom feeders to promote soulless hype for unfinished products. They see this as a threat to their status as gate keepers of game publicity, a house of cards kept afloat by smear campaigning against developers who won’t patronize them and shamelessly shilling for those who will. It is past due for these false prophets of game development to have their fragile lives shattered and be left broken on the wayside with the rest of the propagandic trash that the rest of the journalism world knows is the unfortunate reality of today’s journalism that dares not to go against the grain.
Whenever a new game comes out that seems interesting, I wait for a Dunkey vid. You never miss. So happy to see you and Leah doing something you love and creating an even more involved community out of it. Can't wait to see what comes out of it!
I wish you the best of luck brother, you got my support all the way. We seriously appreciate your content bro. Keep doing your thing
I just started watching your videos again recently since I've found myself playing games again, and you've already inspired me with those. See you do this is furthering that inspiration even more. Thanks for being around all these years dude, I'm hyped to see how huge this is going to get.
OH BOY, I have been waiting for this! I spent years crafting my own little game but I always lacked opportunity. I feel this will be my big breakthrough. My idea is a turn-based J-RPG with farming simulator elements. Dunkey will love it!
XD this comment wins
No way dunkey won't pick it up!
And if Bigmode doesn't pick you up, Nintendo will!
@Matthew Jones Makes me think of his game critics video, where he talks about how he has his own opinion of a game and it's not supposed to be everyone's opinion. You probably wouldn't pitch a WW2 game to Nintendo, or a game with Pokemon-level story telling to Atlus. Of course, like people have said, if a game is good enough Dunkey has been known to overcome his biases (Like Turn-based Anime JRPG Persona 5). I imagine the same approach to which games he'll publish
To be fair, Undertale (one of the games presented as incredible in this video) was a turn-based game. In the video Dunkey reviewed it, he said the gameplay was fun despite being turn based. So just make whatever your videogame is fun and different and it has a shot.
Wish you the best! I have played a lot of the games you have reccomended over the years.
I've followed since the league days and im so happy to see what you've made of yourself man. Best of luck on your project i have a feeling ill be buying your games.
Your presence online has always been big(mode), and a lot of the points you have made over the years about certain games, and the gaming industry trends are always well-received. I believe that if you have the right backing and support, you will certainly help be a good push to the gaming community-- so don't give up Dunkey! Can't wait to see what you put out there
I'm so glad something like this was made, and also made by someone with passion. Someone who actually cares about the developer themself, will help you create your game. And has a genuine background.
I've been so deep into dunkey's lore that I can no longer tell if this is an actual announcement or a satire for tech startup company
probably both tbh
Its real. Both Leah and Jason have been talking about a huge announcement/project on their streams recently. This must be the reason they haven't been streaming as much and why it wont be as frequent in the future (as said by leah).
@Chris Kagia a real actual link???!!! Wow links mean serious stuff!
@Ben Wilton well, it can’t be joke if there’s a website. I mean, that’s just the law.
I had the same feeling but he put too much effort on the promotion side of the video for it to be a joke. Also he has a point for having experience from the consumer point of view and I can definitely see him doing this as an investment; coming from a popular gaming youtube channel.
Achievement unlocked!"Successfully build your own publishing company"
This video really made me FEEL like an indie game. (In all seriousness tho congrats on this I can’t wait to see what you guys do with it!)
Thank you. The ammount of times that I've played games such as Death's Gambit and Rain World where after experiencing such a joyful gaming experience, I feel almost obligated to spread it as it pisses me off how underrated gems simply stay underrated.
You’re funny and you make me laugh. I hope you have fun, help a lot of creators, and make lots of money. You’ve earned it.
holy shit a Dunkey gaming company is an absolute dream. I'll forever be grateful to Dunkey for introducing me to incredible indie games (i.e Enter the Gungeon, Celeste, and Hollow Knight).
This has to be a fucking joke all three of these indie games were EXTREMELEY popular before dunkey. He doesn’t focus on lesser known indies
@Soggy Dog knack 2 was incredible but it wouldn't be fair on the indies to say it's an indie game, it had morbillions of dollars in budget and some of the greatest minds in gaming working on it
@William Henning i.e. is id est, or 'that is,' not 'in explanation'
@Ramdapanda I mean, you don't say 'that is to say,' as if you're essentially just re wording, and then give examples; you say 'for example,' and then..give examples. but each to their own I guess.eta never mind I get what you're saying I guess
Hell yeah, great to see you putting your money where your mouth is in a huge way. If only there was a way to describe the extent to which you're promoting your principles in this venture...something like "large style". idk.
I hope both of you the best! I've seen many great indie games get drowned under the sea of games of questionable quality. We need more publishers who actually like games.
Just want to comment to bump this up, but I have high hopes for Dunkey and Leah, they haven’t led me astray when I’m hesitating on buying a game and I owe a lot of my game collection to some of the fantastic reviews of things I never should have played otherwise,All the best with this endeavour you two!!!
I didn't watch this video because I thought it was a big, elaborate joke and I was saving it for later.But now I know it's real, I just want to say Dunkey, thanks for being the most gamer of all time. It has all led you here
Dunkey please invest in my new up and coming indie game "Hogan's Castle"
Morbius is the end boss!
Ohhhh, the callback! **flashback to his prank-call video**”Im uh… looking for a game for the NES… the names, uh… *Hogans Castle”*
Cosby's Castle did it better
It should have at least 3 levels
I cant wait to play your new indie game "hogans castle"
The day Dunky and Leah releases there first game, I will be there the second it released to buy it. No matter the cost.
Cannot wait to play whatever comes out of this
Dude I love you, I love this...I wish you nothing but the best...you have the right mindset to produce great art.
I can’t wait to see the stuff you publish!
This is so goddamn cool, fuckin bravo man.Can't wait to see Big Mode come out with KNACK 3 BAYBEEEEE.-B
@MoonMan Because I've noticed a lot of people use the word honestly as filler out of habit. You're yet another example.
@MoonMan I'm with you there, MoonMan, cautiously optimistic!
@Anna Green name a dunkey video that was a "shitpost". I could maybe see his final League of Legends video, but it's still just all truthful and factual. "90%" no way, José.
@MK Ultra An odd question, but yes i was honest, otherwise i wouldnt have said all that. Why do u ask that?
@MoonMan Are you sure you're being honest?
I can't believe it's called big mode, I definitely support finally fully interacting w the game industry and just going out there and making good games. Thanks dunkey :))
If this company fails it’s because his little cousin was holding the controller
As an aspiring game dev, this is great news! Thank you Dunkey!
Thank you dunkey, as an indie gamedev it feels so refreshing having someone in your corner that still sees videogames as an art medium. I'll reach out
@Alex Silva I've had a lot of fun with game physics and procedurally generated levels.
@DIYDylana Thank you
@E E I think we mostly agree
@Padre Grande You had an interesting response though, very observant
@Padre Grande But please said facets that allows it to be FUN
Wish you all the success! You deserve it.
kinda weird how videogamedunkey described himself exactly the way i've been thinking of him since i started watching 4.5 years ago.i don't expect much from new things right away, but if he's committed, this could be a good thing for video games.
I think it’s fucking cool to get involved on this level. Thanks for the LOL’s over the months I’ve been a sub and best of luck as a publisher!
PAX was such a great experience that Dunkey finally completed his training arc of escaping League of Legends.
I've heard that this publishing company can really make you feel like a developer.
clickbait channel lol
Ikr? It gave me goosebumps everytime...
No, don't be here Bad Dunkey bot. Go away.
This is incredible and inspiring, I hope that you find nothing but success and thank you for givng back and getting involved in the game development community in the best way I could ever think of.
A living example showing us how good league is when you quit it, I hope you succeed on your mission in all of my heart of hearts as a 9000 % gamer I really do..
Thank you Dunkey and Leah for caring so much about an industry that cares very little most of the time.Thanks to you introducing me to enter the gungeon (which I suck at.), but it was a purchase that I did not regret.I wish I can contribute to your company, but the best that I can do is give moral support and if you got a Patreon you should you know...Link that to the viewers so we can give financial support. XDDo your best and kick the abusive publishers off their throne. This is not just a test for you, but the first step for indie devs and gamers alike
Wish you guys the best in this endeavor! It’s been a pleasure watching your growth over the years man… I’m callin papa john’s
Can't wait to see some beeg games from Bigmode! Congrats and hope things go well for you Dunkey and Leah!
