I have never been directly involved with the creation or publication of any videogame. However, I have backed the following gaming-related Kickstarter campaigns:
Double Fine Adventure Dragged Away: A Night to Remember Gaymer X Spaceteam Admiral's Club Relaunch 'Sup, Holmes? Season 3 Thimbleweed Park Wasteland 2
I currently patronize one gaming-related Patreon:
And I previously supported another:
Phil and Spencer
I also follow (and am followed by) some indie game developers on Twitter, and am friends with a few on Facebook.
I am a videogame fan first and foremost, and as such I've been known to sing the praises of the games and developers I like from time to time. That said, I will always endeavor to disclose any relationship (however insignificant) I may have with the people involved with the creation of said game in the event that I write about them. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to ask!

Now, I may be a little bias because of what happens at about the 2:40 mark (hint: that's my kid), but that video was just simple, lighthearted fun, and every time I think about it I smile.
