Hello gaming friends and family! Welcome to Middle Of Nowhere Gaming, a video games website full of talented writers, artists, and producers of multimedia content dedicated to bringing you alternative opinions on the modern world of gaming. What started as a college podcast in Kansas is now a platform for an international team of driven, ambitious gamers just like you! From hourly, up-to-date news stories, to reviews on the newest games, to interviews with indie and big-name developers on our podcasts; MONG has transformed into something bigger than anyone imagined it might.

With all of that said, we don’t feel we are anywhere near our potential and we want to continue growing with your help!

With your pledge, you can get your name on the MONG website and on our podcast videos, you can chat with us on the Facebook and Patreon activity feeds, you’ll get new podcasts from us, and much more as time goes on!

If you can’t pledge, don't sweat it! We all have bills to pay, so we understand. All of our podcasts will still be posted on iTunes, Podbean, Stitcher, and YouTube every week so that everyone can still listen.

This is an exciting new beginning for all of us, and we hope that you want to experience it with us!

Goals
$1 of $25 per month
For those who don’t remember (or those new to the podcast), Quick Time Event was our weekly timed, topical podcast where different members of the MONG team discussed the newest hot-button issue. The kicker? The podcast was on a countdown -- we were restricted to anywhere from 5 to 10 minutes. Whether it was which actors should play Joel/Ellie in The Last of Us movie or what is going to be announced at E3, it was always a blast. It may sound crazy, but even though QTE is a short podcast, it takes the most time to edit! If you get us to this goal, we’ll make sure to stop being lazy and record a new episode once a week!
