The Game Cavern roots go back to early 2010 when a group comprising of a mix of online and real life friends decided to create a gaming youtube channel for fun and kind of as a joke between our group.  The videos we made while maybe not funny to the rest of the world certainly amused us as we enjoyed seeing what content each other made for the channel.  We had no intention of gaining any attention on our channel but eventually our channel did get a lot of attention, not from our own original content though.  We uploaded a clip from a Blizzcon’s World of Warcraft lore panel where a young man stumped the loremasters themselves and we titled him the “Red Shirt Guy”.  The video took the world by storm and now has over 5 million views appearing on shows like Jimmy Kimmel Live and The Soup.  Red Shirt Guy himself was even immortalized in World of Warcraft as an NPC called the Wildhammer Fact Checker.  Even though the video wasn’t our own content it was pretty exciting to see the name and video become so popular, so quickly.

Our own videos never really became big, as we had no intention or hope for them to.  Not long after we stopped producing much content for that channel and kind of let the project die.

This website is an attempt to resurrect The Game Cavern name, but this time with a bit more serious intentions rather than a joke between friends.  The original The Game Cavern content is not at all representative of this website as I’d like this to be its own new entity.  The website is currently just run by an original Cavernite Jono with assistance from contributor Spiff, but the future may involve interaction from other former members and other new staff.  We hope you join us as our site grows and changes!  We’ll be making adjustments over time to make the site and posts look nicer and more user friendly.
