So I’ve decided to create a 24/7 “MTV for video games”.
It’s called Screenlook, and it will be a 24/7 stream of smaller, indie, and amateur game videos, trailers, and things. I’ve also reached out to one person about even featuring a very short review that was creatively done. (My point being I’m open to content.)
I’ve created a few volumes to show the idea. I’ll be looking into the 24/7 aspect soon. While not a direct comparison, the inspiration comes from my love of the old G4 show Cinematech, and how it made phenomenal “background TV” when getting things done. I want to make a channel you can turn to when you don’t know what you want to play, and you can find something. Steam Queues or browsing itch.io show a ton of varying options. But Steam often shows you clones of games you have, and with itch there’s tons to wade through before you find what you want. I’m just trying to make a new avenue for discovery for smaller games.
I WILL be monetizing the channel. Be that on YouTube or Twitch or wherever else I find to air the show.
If you want in on it, feel free to follow the Twitch, which will alert you to when it goes live: http://twitch.tv/screenlook
And the YouTube, which enough subscriptions will get me a custom URL (YouTube doesn’t give everyone a URL now, due to name hoarding.) That’s at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCa0Smevh5EBqREP7hGWlWqg
And you can always follow on Twitter, for the very rare tweet. http://twitter.com/_screenlook
And if you’ve got an opinion about it, or know of a game I should include, email or tweet me.
For a better idea, here’s a volume that would air, in loop with other similar volumes:
