RE:BIND is an arthouse game analysis site dedicated to the intersection of the performance arts & video games. Since our launch in early 2019, we've consistently delivered some of the most thought-provoking essays, podcasts, and retrospectives out there with unprecedented frequency.

All of this is largely a labor of love and dedication, as members of the LGBTQIA+ community, we understand how important it is to elevate overlooked voices, international indies, under-rated releases, and the material realities that face our medium. Operating as user-supported independent media means foregoing traditional revenue streams (like ads) so we can maintain our editorial focus on what's good instead of what's popular. Without the support of people like you, none of this would be possible.

After spending the past several years dispelling the consumptive mentality towards older games or the dismissive attitudes that prevail towards arthouse gaming, we're excited to move towards the future of our content alongside things we already make:

  • Producing in-depth video essays
  • Compelling interviews streamed live on our Twitch
  • Additional streaming content like analysis & gameplay
  • Discussion podcasts that tackle unique topics
  • Developing our own interactive content, be they games or experimental works that hybridize with other mediums

Our content direction has always originated from a focus on an adaptive lens towards the horizon, staying ahead of mainstream recognition, we believe effective media is proactive both in form and function, not just a content aggregation that fails to challenge global audiences.

This production workload already takes a tremendous amount of effort and material strain even prior to the current state of the world, with your support we can continue to innovate and explore fresh ideas in spite of those difficulties and thrive.

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

When we reach this goal, we'll have enough money to remain focused part-time on our podcast, livestreams, video essays and writing.
