    It is heart-warming to see the inspiring stories of people that walk out of League of Legends. Thank you, Dunkey

      I still vividly remember an old friend blowing off the praise I was giving to Dunkey's content and saying "just stop. He doesn't make league videos anymore so he sucks." LoL is just a negative influence on most people. What a mf chump. No friend o mine, bye bye.

      @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.

      He didn't walk out. He got banned for being a toxic piece of crap and then went on to make troll videos for a living.
      And now he expects people to take this scam of a publishing company seriously? Give me a fucking break!

      @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 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%

      @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.

    how far into the projects is he expecting teams to be in? I wouldn't mind pitching ours. I think our game looks great (albeit unpolished) and has an interesting premise but it's not bug-free by a long shot yet and still has at least another 4-6 months dev time left. Apart from that I think it ticks all the boxes, it's fun, it's definitely highly original. The potential is all there, but it's just not quite there as a 'game'

      @C0wsmacker it's been very lukewarm in the chats I've had. most other devs I've discussed this with to over the last few days seem to think he's in over his head with the business+competition side, won't have enough time to be a real publisher (with his youtube channel), doesn't have the connections or that he doesn't really have that much of an eye for truly original games (after all- he hated Death Stranding for months)
      Others have said his pitch came across as hyperbolic and unprofessional with the silly voices and such.
      We all agree that the exposure would be nice though, and could make all the difference. I'm still on the fence personally.

      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.

      The problem is that being passionate is one thing. Being good at the job is the next one. You can have a group of passionate developers, but if none of them are able to actually do what they imagine, then passion won't bring you anywhere. And then starts the problem. The passionate developers weren't able to meet a deadline even if it was really loosely set. They still missed it. Are you still funding the game? Are you still funding the passion not knowing if they can actually deliver what they want? Pump in more money when you could use that money to finance other developers? These will be the problems that they are facing. And the main issue with Dunkey's initial video is that everyone on the other side is just waiting for the one moment. "Game gets delayed for the 3rd time", "Developers being released without finishing their game" or "Released game isn't fully finished and is missing features".

    • Godzilla
      Godzilla 2 дні тому

      The thing is he isnt trying to make any games, people seem to miss that he keeps saying "publisher" so his main contribution will be money so the developers can fund their indie projects, he clearly wants some say in the project but I imagine that's to keep out crap mechanics and gattcha schemes.
      so his lack of development is only as much a hindrance if he is issitant on implementation of a feature that doesnt fit in the game it is in.

      ​@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

      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.
