About

We're an arthouse game critique writing collective that features AAA retrospectives of yore with contemporary reviews of microindie titles on Itch.io. We look for the odd, underappreciated, and under-represented, treating games as art instead of asking if they are. With a staff entirely part of the LGBT community, we understand how important elevating marginalized voices is.

RE:BIND is largely a labor of love and dedication, but we still have material costs associated with pursuing interviews, setting up physical pop-up galleries and developer socials offline. As we further grow from written content into our audio-visual expansion, we would greatly benefit from the patronage of those in our audience with the means to do so. Down the line, we want to extend the same opportunity to amazing talent who would like to work with us.

With the assistance of our readers, we can keep bringing untold stories into the light and dispel the consumptive mentality towards older games as sale-fodder or the dismissive attitudes that prevail towards small indies.

We reach out to developers who never thought the press would be interested in their passion for interviews, and analyze games nobody else will. We've proven over the past year that you can get good engagement covering micro-indies, and we'd like to keep up that momentum.

ONGOING: Our Podcast!

We decided to launch our podcast earlier than hitting the goal, Patrons at the 5$ tier get exclusive access to episodes as soon as they're out of production, prior to roll-out to the public!
Each episode is anywhere from 45 minutes to three hours (!) with a focus on weekly guests. We'd like to expand our equipment to do both in-person and remote round tables, as well as field interviews at trade shows like GDC!


ON HOLD (Post-Production): Our Micro-Documentary Interviews

We have a full season of filmed interviews with solo developers and unheard voices in the indie games community to be released at an unannounced date. Our first "season" currently in post-production features amazing developers like Ryro (Of Genderwrecked), Colorfiction (Of Ode To A Moon), and more!

Our interviews vary in length from the very short, to multi-parters. Through our patreon we will be rolling out early access to the videos prior to release on our youtube channel, and offering additional behind the scenes footage.


For some examples of our written work, take a look at some of our favorites:


Join us as we journey through obscurity and the curated niche: you never know what we'll find.

Video Content

Rebind.io
finally embarks on its quest for quality video content. Light documentary work and possibly more, this milestone means we have room to breathe, focusing on the site in a more full-time capacity, including audio interviews with developers from all over the globe.
