    Our world has been reshaped by this pandemic. Instead of talking about all of the terrible things, I thought for today we'd focus on one of the silver linings of this horrible event. Video games. Well, the video game industry. We've all been turning to old favorites and new adventures to escape and comfort us and it SHOWS. Look at Among Us and Fall Guys. Small games that may never have had the hype they now do . In fact, this is probably the BEST time to launch your own game and I will tell you why!

      Game stop be like:

    2. NeoArashi

      There is LESS entertainment now? I wasn't aware that game were disapearing? Don't you mean less "new" forms of entertainment? Because new games still releases every weeks

    3. BeyondGalaxy

      Promote yourself : I'm in middle school and I have coding as a hobby. I'm currently working on my dream game in Scratch with my irl friend. I have a part in the writing, game design, and coding section of the game. While my friend has a role in doing the art and also coding section of the game. The game is an RPG (the graphics is planned to be pixel art, but it might change). The mechanics in the game is a mix of mechanics of the games I like.

    4. Daniel Blaga

      Promote yourself: I'm a budding game designer and I've now started geting into game development as well. I love creating lived-in worlds with fun interactive setpieces everywhere. Lately I've started to learn game development to bring my ideas to life, but progress is slow. I can also 3d model and create PBR compatible textures. If you're someone more coding-focused and interested in game development I'm sure we could make a great team.

      at 0:28 I thought he was talking about the Dominos pizza place not a ripple effect lmfao

    6. Smoking Gamer

      "promote yourself" I'm an aspiring developer who recently, with a friend who is a coder, has begun work on a project we've been talking about for a while now. To put it simply it's an RPG with lots of freedom in character builds, that takes place in a randomly generated but largely unique and everchanging dungeon, mixed with a few social element mechanics. The two big emphases we have in terms of themes are randomness and freedom. I guess the question I'm asking is if anybody would be interested in actually playing something like that?

    7. Lana Omer

      I wish matpat never made this video......

    8. Ink Sans

      This virus isn’t fake people are dying from it but some of the deaths died from cancer but they had COVID ok so I am just saying some deaths are just people that have COVID but they really died from cancer

    9. dat gamer boi

      I've been learning and 2 years later hopefully I could make game

    10. 「It Just Works」

      I hope the pandemic somehow contributes to a second video game crash. This industry is in desperate need of a reset.

    11. Grim Reaper

      I wish development would stay slowed down a bit then we might get even better games than we already get

    12. Ninjapizza8247

      Oh that's great "When they said to flatten the curve they ment the X axas (I don't like the American accent because I can't convey my words to speak to text. I just want to say axas not access)

    13. Glossy

      Promote Yourself: I've always loved writing and have hundreds of files filled with stories that I wrote or ideas I had in the past. The most prominent one has become a script I wanted to make into a movie or TV series. I haven't had the money or chance to reach anyone because of corona.

    14. Choci & Katt

      "Promote yourself" youtube channel, im doing animation pixel art with microsoft paint :) and then my sis does gacha life and gacha club stuff its a channel for both of us as a hobby but we also hope we can make some people smile :) also theres some story over here- **cough** sorry got somethin in my throat : ]

    15. The gamer

      make an old world vid? like what is under the fog of war.

    16. Grimmace

      Pretty sure Xbox plans to XP their already released games, turning out DLC for as long as the fans are buying. It seems the direction MS needs to take to take the newly purchased Bethesda out of their Game Pass lawsuit, and all the small Xbox developers have started buzzing excitedly the past few months.

    17. Expldcreeperyt 2

      Matpat has predicted March 31st 2021

    19. Gravity Games

    22. Loretta Angiolino

      "Promote yourself" Well, I'm super late but might as well! I'm a Game Art student in my first year and I'd like to help out with something (preferably 2D) while I'm stuck inside! Best at 2D art, but I have basic knowledge of 3dsMax, but I like to learn more! I also like writing characters if that's any help.

    23. Account

      "Promote yourself" I'm a german highschool student and have been working on small never finished games before. Im not very good at drawing but pretty well known to programming with GMS 2. I decided that I need some fully working games for my portfolio in the future. If anyone is interested in making any kind of 2D game (pref. using Gamemaker Studio 2) or has a good idea for a small game please comment

    24. Niko

      Not me dying rn gen z needs a new game to kill-

    25. IceBreaker

      i was triying to make a game here on quarantine but i remembered something i dont know programming languaje XD . i wanna know if someone wants to talk here is my discord iseVraker#9516

    26. Chubit Tugade

      If i were to make my own game i will make a 8bit girl with a magic rainbow umbrella, kinda like super princess peach, or mary poppins but she has the power of colors and emotions. Then, Mario, Q-bert, Pac-man, and other colorful teams of the rainbow will bring back the emotions and colors back to their games. Kinda similar to Wreck it Ralph's style of famous games... too bad im not a indie game developer, im just a 10 year old girl. Hope someone else will make it true. Dont mention me please

    27. Chubit Tugade

    31. Alex Lee

      I like how he's giving indie devs a space to promote here :) Promote Yourself: Release my first game in Early Access on Steam last year - Dream Knights, a 2D platformer in an illustrative style of art. Developed using Construct 2. Currently developing the first update and preparing for full release out of early access. Going to be developing a 3D first person walking simulator with a horror theme in Unreal Engine after this. I am also a musician that plays keyboard, bass and guitar and I'm thinking of getting into developing a new animation when I have time. When I'm not doing any of this, I also paint with oil or acrylics on canvas.

    32. Distrar Subvoicar

      "Promote yourself" I'm a translator and indie dev, looking to translate other people's indie games into Spanish and Agirowen (my favorite languages), since my indie game is taking a long time to make due to having to program a complex system from scratch and I want something easier and productive to do during times when I'm mentally stuck regarding programming my own game (I'm way better at translation than programming, heh)

    33. Muhammad Ayman Rahman

      Ah yes mat pat theory simulator thank god I have a switch can't wait!

    36. CrossoverWorlds

      Relating to the promote yourself thing: I've actually gotten a fanfiction i'm writing on Wattpad, but currently it's on hiatus due to lack of motivation and other irl stuff. The fanfiction is planned to come in a trilogy, with perhaps a 4th book if people enjoy the first three. Currently i'm still writing the first one and it's still on hiatus again, due to lack of motivation. It's called Crossover Sagas and you can find it on wattpad (If you want i can post a link to the hiatused story.) Crossover Sagas Status: hiatus Official Book titles: Book 1, Hoperise (on hiatus) Book 2, Fatalshot (not out) Book 3, Title to be determined (not out)

      If the virus is so deadly (and all due respect to people who have died to it) then why haven't all of the anti-maskers died yet? Surely they would be since it was mandatory to wear them by the federal government for risk of exposure or transmission. So why aren't they all dead?

      1. Emma

        It's more deadly towards elderly people. And most people recover from covid-19 Like not everyone who gets it dies lol Also wearing a mask doesn't protect you, it's meant to protect people around you. So in theory everyone will be protected. So in a public space where everyone else is wearing a mask, the anti maskers are spreading it to people (I'm not a doctor just a person with some knowledge)

    39. Melani Choco

      Promote yourself: I’m a college student who does ROfor videos where I react to scary videos, say yes to the dress, and I theorize what would happen in some marvel movies. My hopes one day is to make it on the big screen and be a big actress, and have about 6Million subscribers on ROfor before I turn 21

    43. tantthetank

      My Brother worked on a game whenever we were at a place that is out vacation home. I really liked the game idea and it had Multiplayer. Although one year he didn't and found out all the progress for the game was gone even though he only really worked on it at vacation he did quite a bit. He had a story for it... Map ideas and more... I have been wanting him to continue it since 2019...

    74. Lil Savage446

      Ik this is 2 months late and that im not the only one stating this, but the correlation between among us and fall guys was that they felt like party games. Games that can be played with a group of people. Its why fortnite was so popular a while ago too, and I've been looking for a 4 player online multiplayer game for a long time. We've played practically every style of game on the ps4 from survival (minecraft, the forest, etc.) to tactical shooters (rainbow 6 siege mainly) to battle royales (fortnite, pubg, apex) to the aforementioned party games (fall guys, among us) to sandbox (rec room, roblox, etc.)

    84. Asuto

      “Promote yourself” Well here goes, I’m not exactly massively talented with a lot of things however I’ve had this idea that I’ve always thought would be a great idea for a game, it’s based on life experiences but not a play through of my life, basically you play as a boy or girl (up to the player) and you go through life from a child dealing with parents breaking up and being used as a weapon to attack both mum and dad from both sides to a teenager that’s survived through the pandemic physically but mentally lost yourself and everyone you know until, at the age of 19, ends up taking their own life, I know, sounds dark, but the core message is about mental health and suicide prevention, I’m thinking of calling it, “inner demons” or something like that if anyone is interested I can go into much more detail, just message me on discord at Billy1712#8612 Or alternatively if you don’t have discord, reply to this comment with how else to get in contact and I will Thanks for reading

    91. Ahmad P0w3r Gaming

      I have been thinking about my game's story. The game named as "Anti Devils" where you're supposed to defeat dangerous robots and people with op hardware. The game is about "Shahbaz Khan" a Pakistani who has the dream to finish off evils. He has a unique personality, a weak arm and a robot which can split and get on his body as well as wear off from his body and become a robot able to punch pretty hard. I am a 15 YR old who wants to make this game as soon as he become an adult, so do that I'm trying my best to learn coding and game development but meh I have the shittiest pc so I'm stopped for now. I'm trying my best to make the game but I'm not financially strong enough rn.

    92. worldssmallestfan
