    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".

      @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.

      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.

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.

    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.

    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'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%

      You1tube2account 7 days ago +1

      @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.

      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 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!

      ​@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

    • Kittyclysm
      Kittyclysm 7 days ago +7

      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.

    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 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.

    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. XD
    Do 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
