Enthusiast Gaming acquires Gameumentary

Gameumentary, the popular video game website known for its long-form documentary series, has been acquired by our parent company Enthusiast Gaming.

Here’s a message from the newest team of enthusiasts:

In July 2017, Gameumentary ran a successful Kickstarter campaign to fund a number of documentaries covering independent studios and successful game franchises like Darksidersand Kingdom Come: Deliverance.


After the Kickstarter documentaries were completed, Gameumentary entered into a contract with Enthusiast Gaming to fund and produce video game documentaries for the next two years. In a separate deal, Gameumentary agreed to be acquired by Enthusiast Gaming to officially become part of their media network, which includes high-profile outlets like Destructoid and Escapist Magazine.


“We’re very excited to join the Enthusiast Gaming network and appreciative of the opportunity to continue making documentaries for the next two years,” said Gameumentary founder, Nick Calandra. “Our Divinity: Original Sin documentary was the first doc to be produced from this deal, and we’re very excited about what our content line-up looks like for 2019 and beyond.”


Since Gameumentary’s launch in January 2017, the channel has produced more than a dozen documentaries and has built an audience of 11,000+ subscribers.”
