What is Doublejump?The revived and re-imagined Doublejump is an independent Australian publication that provides top-quality coverage of the video game industry through exploratory feature articles and editorials, convenient news Digests, and thoughtful reviews. Our staff is an eclectic mix of enthusiasts who play everything from multiplayer shooters to JRPGS and mobile MOBAs that have all come together to celebrate the love of this wonderful pastime: video gaming!
What do you do?In its original incarnation, Doublejump was committed to delivering accurate and professional daily news coverage that was supported by occasional editorial pieces and reviews.
Fast forward to today and the newly-reinvigorated Doublejump retains its news heritage but focusses more on delivering top-notch original content! Though its founders are experienced, Doublejump is embracing the fresh writing talent that the Australian community has to offer, while exploring topics that may affect gamers all around the world. We’ve only just begun to explore different aspects of gaming culture and even how other forms of media interact with it, and we’re still finding our voice. Video game coverage is evolving, and we’re building Doublejump into something that truly demonstrates our shared appreciation of video games!
Why are you on Patreon?We’re providing a platform for passionate thinkers that isn’t beholden to a parent organisation or compromised by intrusive advertising. As such, we’ve turned to you, our potential future Patrons, to help develop this next digital stage for quality video game discussion led by - but not limited to - an Australian staff.
What exactly will I be helping you with?Your donations will initially assist us in covering running costs (such as web hosting) before contributing towards content creation (through funding for review games and A/V equipment). Eventually, your contributions will allow us to pay our team members for their hard work and allow them to focus on exploring new topics and produce more ambitious content for you, our Patrons!
What’s in it for me?Not only will we thank you with some awesome rewards (as per our sidebar), you’ll also get to enjoy that warm fuzzy feeling of knowing that you had a huge hand in the future of video game coverage!
We’re not going to remove any rewards unless we physically can’t run them anymore, and we’d love to bolster these reward tiers with more juiciness as Doublejump grows in prominence.
What if I just want to make a one-off donation?First of all, thank you! Unfortunately, Patreon does not support one-off donations at this point in time, but we’re more than happy to accommodate your support. Just shoot us an email at (contact[at]doublejump[dot]co), and we’ll sort something out that works for you!
A final note, not presented in question form:As we’ve mentioned above, Doublejump is still finding its voice and developing as a publication. There’s much that we’ve already learned but there’s even more uncharted territory that we look forward to facing head-on through your support! As Patrons, not only will you be enabling the next big thing in Australian video game coverage, you’ll also get to enjoy the wonderful content that the growing Doublejump team has to offer!
With all of that out of the way, on behalf of the entire Doublejump family, thank you for considering being a Patron! We’re working hard to build this publication into something that exemplifies the best of what Australia has to offer. It means a whole hell of a lot to us that you’re paying attention to our hard work and dedication, and we promise that we’re committed to passionately celebrating the wonderful pastime that we all share, video gaming.
