Jason Yevgeniy Gastrow, better known as VideogameDunkey (or just Dunkey), is a YouTube content creator. At one point, he took a break from the League of Legends content making game.
So what does the big guy want to do next? What about an indie game publishing company? Dunkey has announced on his channel that he will launch a company called Bigmode, a "passionate voice for quality, originality, and fun in independent games."
We wish Dunkey and his wife Leah the best in putting their publishing business together, but there is no clear evidence that he is involved in the video game business other than playing a ton of games, receiving millions of subscribers, and being a content creator and critic. As a person publishing titles, it's clear as day that his main strength is PR and marketing (to an extent).
Talking and supporting video games as an influencer as a critic is a completely different ball game than being active in game development and publishing from start to finish (GameSpot's Greg Kasavin and Supergiant), but this kind of sloppy move raises more questions than answers. Does Bigmode have its own in-house publishing experts they should disclose?
Despite their differences, we'd give them the benefit of the doubt and wish the duo of Dunkey and Leah the best of luck, as well as respect and support for this bold new endeavor.
