GMKing and GMTV to part company

on April 25, 2009 - 5216 Views

GMTV logoGameMaker Blog can exclusively reveal that Game Maker TV is to split from Game Maker media group GMKing.  Both of these organisations have been troubled of late with very little emerging from the brands of GMKing this year which include MarkUp, the GMcast podcast, GMTV and the former wiki (now integrated with the YoYo Games website).

When GMTV joined the GMKing network, announced shortly after the release of GMTV episode 4 in July last year, the move was controversial especially with those at GMTech.  Only one episode of GMTV has been released in the nine months since the merger.

Host of GMTV Dan Eggers said “GMTV plans to release 3 mini shows a week“.  After producing just one show in four months this seems far too ambitious.

    Caniac :Lol, cause it is so bad?

    No, because the entire animal population is cross breeding and resulting in real-life Pokémon around the world.

    He isn’t joking. It’ll happen. 😉

  6. @Caniac There is one Danny here, Dan Eggers from GMTV. The link is posted is to HCG’s video.

  8. Danny says:

    I was sorry for linking you to GMHV.

  9. Caniac says:

    lol, whoops, you’re right.
    Danny, who were you sorry too?

  10. Danny says:

    @Danny
    To add to what I said I’m sorry.

  11. Caniac says:

    wait a minute! there are two Dannys running around now?
    Dan (the GMTV one)
    perhaps you could change your nickname to Dan E, or Danny E.?

  12. Danny says:

    He had his own show.

  13. Caniac says:

    who, HCG?

    Sometimes these kind of things don’t work out. Oh well.

    I have been working on a 40 second clip for GMVision for the past 2 days,

    I would never be able to edit a 5 minute clip a week.

    and then it would also take a day to upload its self.

  16. NAL says:

    Hardcoregamer :zapped. Mini-shows. How about 5 mins a week? Thats all noobs are asking for. 1 review and something else should suffice. DO NOT ALLOW THE GMHV OR GMVISION TO COME BACK AND P00WN THE INDIE GAME DEVELOPER VISIONS!

    …seriously now, ban needed. Old joke is old.

  17. Caniac says:

    5 Minutes would not be too hard, but it is a major commitment. You have to write scripts, edit them, record, screen record, and compile. if you really think it is THAT easy to do 5 minutes per week then YOU make your own show, and do it weekly.

    “So, does gmjab still read this blog?”

    I very much doubt it, he disappeared about 6 months back.

    Sam :Well that didn’t last long. Any chance of finding out why?

    After producing just one show in four months this seems far too ambitious.

    Before joining Gmking, We were promised service that would allow us to release episodes monthly, however the staff over there are not doing what was planned and we believe that splitting apart while getting dedicated staff might be the best solution.

    I’m not exactly surprised, after talking to Phil recently about GMKing and such, it’s not a huge shock.
    GMKing hasn’t done anything this year – apart from 2 (or 3) podcasts, and moving the Wiki.

    They should of picked people to take over when something like this happens – a massive slow down.

    “GMTV plans to release 3 mini shows a week”

    If DPoole couldn’t sustain a five page magazine weekly, I don’t see how Danny’s going to be managing that for long.

    I’ll not condemn the idea immediately, but remain skeptical.

    Lol, I never expected this…
