Our Story...

Hey, my Danny O'Dwyer and in September of 2016, I quit my job at GameSpot to found Noclip. Since then we've been filming documentaries about video game development all around the world. Funded entirely by our Patrons, we've been on a mission to create a vault of timeless documentaries to help preserve the story of video games for generations to come. All of these documentaries are available to watch on YouTube for free

These documentaries would never have happened without the support of thousands of people around the world. Our mission is to be independent & authentic, so we take absolutely no advertising money or funding from the video games industry to produce these. We try and pay our patrons back for their generosity by giving them access to behind the scenes features, updates, early access, exclusive podcasts and much more.

With your help, we can continue to preserve gaming's history. We can make entertaining docs about games. We can educate young designers and players.

Please join us today and help us continue our work.

If we reach 4500 Patrons we'll allow our patrons to vote on what documentary we do next. No matter what, no matter where. Even if the studio isn't available to talk - we'll make it happen.
