YOUTUBER videogamedunkey, who has over 7million subscribers on the platform, has announced that he is starting a publishing company with his partner, Leah.

Jason ‘videogamedunkey’ Gastrow started creating humorous videos on YouTube that critique games around 11 years ago.

He has grown in popularity over the years and is now one of the most popular creators on the platform, with an estimated worth of several million dollars.

Over the years, he has been highly critical of big budget triple-A games that produce essentially the same game every year.

This includes games which hold back progress via microtransactions, or otherwise bring nothing new or interesting to the industry, calling them “spam”.

Dunkey claims his new publishing label, BigMode, will be used to help out passionate indie creators with their projects.

It calls itself “a passionate voice for quality, originality and fun in indie games.”

He also says that BigMode will not work with games that use NFTs, crypto or blockchain technology.

Currently, no-one is signed with BigMode, though developers can apply for a publishing deal through the website.

One of the biggest claims that Dunkey makes in his announcement video is that the company “has put a lot of effort into making the most developer friendly contracts possible.”

However, we are yet to see copies of the contracts and don’t know the exact terms.

On Twitter, many people have been critical of Dunkey’s efforts, saying that someone who plays and reviews games doesn't have the relevant experience needed for publishing.

Publishers often handle a number of administrative tasks for studios, such as getting the game approved and age-rated on each platform, as well as handling media and marketing.

Speaking anonymously to GLHF, one industry professional was supportive of Dunkey’s efforts to promote unknown games via his platform.

They said, “Publishers with essentially zero success, with CEOs that had the same amount of experience as Dunkey, when they start gatekeeping a new publisher it is laughable. 

“They should probably concentrate on publishing games that actually sell rather than relying on singular titles to carry their portfolio of formulaic s***e.”

HAVIG TOO MUCH FUN?

Recently, Jeopardy! host Ken Jennings poked fun at a contestant over his game show winnings. 

Ken teased the audience: "Many Jeopardy! contestants come on the show with a plan on what they would do with their winnings but Navid Mehrjou has one I've never heard before..." 

Contestant Navid Mehrjou then shared that he planned on enjoying a murder mystery cruise if he won.

Ken asked: "Is there a specific type of murder mystery cruise?" 

Navid answered: "The Golden Girls had an episode back in the day where the ladies went to a hotel, and it was a murder mystery...and it was amazing.

"And that has made me want to take a murder mystery cruise."

The audience laughed when Ken joked: "The Golden Girls have determined the course of your life, perhaps?"

Navid added: "In this endeavor and many others."

The contestant turned away as the audience continued laughing.

Ken will be hosting the ABC game show until January.

THE SPINOFF SHOW

Meanwhile, co-host Mayim Bialik will host the spinoff Celebrity Jeopardy! on Sundays starting September 25th.

In a recent teaser, the Big Bang Theory actress stunned in a plunging dress. 

The hostess ditched her glasses and styled her brunette hair down.

Mayim had her arm casually resting on the host podium.

She asked: "These stars are ready for prime time, are you?"

"Watch your favorite celebrities put their brains and buzzer to the test on Celebrity Jeopardy!"

Three celebrities have been announced for the premiere on September 25th.

Actor Simu Liu, comedian Andy Richter - who previously won big on the spinoff series - and Ego Nwodim will be competing against each other. 

Other celebrities include Crazy Rich Asians actress Constance Wu, comedian Iliza Shlesinger, and standup comic Ray Romano.
