Would you mix a webseries on gaming with a webseries on food? You might if you wanted to fight back against the perception that gamers are just interested in junk food.
Paco Jaen of the G*M*S Magazine, a RPG site with reviews and articles, has a new Kickstarter. The site has invested in video taking cameras to film during conventions, making unboxing videos and so on. They’ve now got quite a lot of tech.
The Kickstarter is to support a new webseries for G*M*S. Dice and Slice aims to include food channel footage, with recipe walk throughs, tips and tricks with gaming channel footage, with game walk throughs, demos and tips.
Not sure it’ll work? Not sure Paco knows anything about cooking? The team have wisely put together a demo video.
I’ll put my hands up and admit that I’m from the pizza brigade tribe of gamers. When it’s my turn to provide food I provide fast food menus. Surprisingly, if the TV remote is not in reach and a food show comes on the TV I will often let it play. Maybe Dice and Slice will tempt me – despite my loyalty to the local chippy.
Most of all – it’s great to see G*M*S growing.
Here’s a sample of their gaming vids.
