Welcome to the friendliest place on Patreon - The Basement! Thank you for considering becoming a Patron - we're excited to bring you special Patron-only content and opportunities! If you can't become a Patron at this time, please consider following this page!

Who is The Basement?
The Basement is a Youtube gaming channel started by Peter and Ted - two friends in Minnesota who have a passion for games and a deep desire to create and entertain.

When we started The Basement, we did it because we believe in the power of games to bring people together. So much of the internet seems to be about pitting people against each other - enter The Basement - because we believe we can make a difference. Together we can make the world a friendlier place.

In July of 2015, Ted and Peter launched their first video on Youtube - a play through of Donkey Kong Country for the SNES. The commentary was pretty bad. The video quality was... also pretty bad. However, it was the beginning of a great place where so many awesome people could gather and take part in a positive gaming community. 

Patreon is a service where you can pledge to send a regular payment to creators, so they can support themselves and keep making more new stuff. In return, you get access to cool stuff that the average viewer doesn't. 

Patreon is better for fueling content than advertising or sponsorship. The content is 100% uncompromised, payment is more predictable, and creators don't need to stoop to clickbait content or other shady practices.

What's in it for me?
All Patrons pledging $2 or more get access to 2 Patron-only videos per month and a special Patron role on discord - giving you super-secret access.

Pledge $5 or more a month and you'll get access to all our Patron-only videos featuring games that we love, but generally wouldn't perform well on Youtube. Also other bonus content (behind the scenes, music-related, etc.) is all yours at this level!

Also, If you pledge $5 or more, your name will be shown at the end of select videos that thank our patrons. (There will be at least 2 of these on Youtube per month) 


At the 10$ level, you will have access to our more adult-oriented games. (horror, violence, that kind of thing) it's been highly requested in the past, but it didn't jive with our Youtube branding. Well, now that we can 'police' who is watching it a little better, we can finally play, record, and publish this kind of stuff! We'll still be the same family friendly dudes, just... branching out in what we play.

Why is The Basement on Patreon?
Patreon allows us to make content we really want to make and not have to worry as much about SEO and pandering to Youtube trends. We're passionate about retro games, but those are notoriously poor performers on Youtube - Patreon will allow us to play those more! Thank you in advance for becoming a Patron and supporting The Friendliest Place on Youtube - check out the rewards and goals section to see what YOU get out of it!
