If you’re looking around on Steam, GOG, or YouTube then you’ve probably seen a fair bit of documentary-style work done on the topic of video games. Invisibility Blues: Exploring Race in Video Games is an upcoming video series hoping to explore and critique “race and representation in contemporary games and game culture.”

There’s no doubt this is a subject which does not receive as much attention as it deserves. Sure, articles talk about race and video games from time to time, but do we really see much headway being made? At the moment, it seems not to be the case. Dr. Samantha Blackmon and Alisha Karabinus have come to Kickstarter in order to fund five episodes for this new series but are still about $1,000 short of their $4,500 goal.

Curious to see their game criticism in action? You can check out their existing series of videos on Not Your Mama’s Gamer. Invisibility Blues is an intriguing project that should have no trouble being funded, so hopefully the word gets out in this final week of funding.

Glad to see the BL visual novel Sentimental Trickster was funded. How about those #Kickstarter stretch goals? https://t.co/AEU8LaeD6M - 3 years ago
