Hello there! I am an English born, Scottish sounding, Netherlands residing content creator and my name is Ali. I am the kind of guy who likes to show how something could, or perhaps should be… but perhaps isn’t. I'm going to assume that you have some questions about what AliOnGames is. Sit back, relax and i'll give you a little rundown.

What is AliOnGames?
AliOnGames is a channel that takes the world of video games & movies and discusses when these two realms cross each others' borders. Usually, the politics of Hollywood get in the way of the funding and casting decisions for such endeavors, leaving them poorly executed, and us disappointed. AliOnGames hypothesizes what could be and attempts inspire more faithful recreations of our favorite video game franchises on the big screen.

Most importantly though, the AliOnGames channel is a place for conversation. Without conversation, there can be no solution. Each part of that conversation helps contribute to the larger talking point. It's time to put the age of the "cash grab franchise crossover" to bed.


The Content.

"Every piece of content I create must stand just as well as a single piece of content as it may in a series, like a mini catharsis. It'll be created to be expressive, informative, thought provoking, conversation starting and purposeful. I'll put as much care and attention to detail as I can in every video to ensure a final video that I can be proud of, even if the content of it is perhaps a little unpopular or controversial. It's quality over quantity every time." - Ali (November 8, 2017)

There are two main series that AliOnGames currently focuses on... 

  • Live Action Re-cast Protocol - I’m sure there are games that you've played before that have made you say “You know… this world would be a great place to set a movie.” Regardless of the reasons for a game to movie adaptations to miss the mark, it’s becoming very apparent that the movie industry favors the mass appeal and hype of the brand, over delivering the richness of these worlds and characters to the big screen. This needs to change…

    Think of the possibility of video game movies being faithfully crafted from the source content it's based on. A big part of that are the actors involved. Now, think of casting such movies and being just as faithful, picking the right actor for the right reason and ignoring the politics and demographic pressure that usually comes with these decisions. This is how it should be.

  • First Person Experience (Coming 2018) - This series of content consists of creating a series of mini movies for different games using non-scripted gameplay and writing scripts and plots around those experiences after they have occurred. The purpose for this content is to create truly immersive narrative and expose the potential for immersive gaming experiences in "sandbox-y" titles. These elements are often overlooked or taken for granted in this genre of gaming. The first series takes place in the Star Citizen Universe with the potential for more open-ended games being used for this style of story telling in the future.

In addition to those 2 main focuses, the occasional tutorial, vlog, opinion piece, unboxing and review will be made when the opportunity comes around. Patreon, Gamewisp and Twitch supporters also receive occasional "behind the scenes" and "blooper reel" videos and get to contribute their questions to the monthly AliOnGames Q+A video.


Community Funding? 
I want to ensure that my content, and the channel as a whole, remains as sponsorship free as possible. It’s not unheard of, especially more recently, for sponsors to cancel their partnership over a clash in agendas or disagreements over the style of information delivery.

AliOnGames has it's own agenda and I would rather have the backing of people who are on board with that, who are as passionate and as enthusiastic about the content as I am so that we move forward and grow while being on the exactly same page as each other. 

With such support coming directly from those who watch and enjoy the content, I find it much easier to plan HOW and WHEN to invest in the channel's growth. I have put in place a number of  "support goals" that I can refer to in order to know when to invest in growing the channel's tools, hardware, content and perks for supporters. This kind of organisation allows for growth and giving back without limiting already established elements that you know and love.

Below are the perks able to be fulfilled as of right now...

ALL SUPPORTERS
  • Weekly updates through Patreon/Twitch/Gamewisp and Discord.
  • Ability to submit questions for AliOnGames Monthly Supporter Exclusive Q+A video.
  • Exclusive and automatic entry into any and all giveaways opportunities.
  • Tier relevant Discord Title and Roles.
  • Exclusive "Blooper Reel" and "Behind the Scenes" content.

MEGA SUPPORTERS + ULTIMATE SUPPORTERS
These two levels add a One to One Support perk. This is to assist people who require individual attention and assistance in things like Photoshop, Video editing and PC hardware/software consultations/troubleshooting/technical support. The One to One sessions mean that every supporter will have my complete and undivided attention using text, voice or video communication through Skype or Discord. Education empowers one's creative thinking and execution.

The following support goals are being worked towards right now and will allow for increased content production, quality and variety as well as more opportunities to give back to those who support AliOnGames.

  • Monthly Supporter Giveaways.
  • Investment in cosplay materials.
  • Ability to arrange community meetups.
  • Weekly Livestreams (inc. cosplay and supporter exclusive giveaways for every game.)
  • AliOnGames online community portal.
  • Ability to invest in and expand the AliOnGames team to create bigger productions.
  • Investment in hardware for 4k content.
  • Ability to Rent/Build a bigger, sound treated space for bigger productions.

Regardless of where in this road map we are, the potential is there to inspire some change. I love video games and I love movies. Like many of you, I am sick of amazingly creative storytelling and virtual environments being somewhat ruined through film. It can be so much better... so it should be.

The purpose of AliOnGames is to open eyes and minds to the state of things as they are now, show better options... and perhaps in time, and with enough resources, actually MAKE those options a reality to be enjoyed by everyone, everywhere. 

Thank you for checking out this Patreon Campaign Page. Whether you back this campaign or not... thank you for consideration. I hope you are happy and healthy, and I will see you in a coming video/livestream.
