The Jimquisition Has Gone Indie

The Jimquisition has left The Escapist and cut all ties with advertisers. Jim Sterling has taken to Patreon to fund a new Jimquisition website, which will host three main features: the very same Jimquisition web series we’ve all come to know and love, written games reviews such as Jim has previously done for Destructoid and The Escapist, and a weekly podcast that may or may not actually have guests joining Jim in his ramblings.

As of this writing, The Jimquisition’s Patreon page has already garnered 1200 supporters and raised over $5,000 in funds. All content will be provided free of charge to everyone who may wish to access it, and all content will be provided regularly without any milestones needing to be reached in order for said content to be produced (there was once a single, all-purpose milestone of $6000 a month; it was quickly removed).

Check out the new Jimquisition website, and watch the Patreon’s announcement video below.
