Mission Statement

Level Story is primarily a magazine that critiques and celebrates the stories told in video games. Each issue of the magazines focuses on a single game and includes various articles / essays about said game. In addition, Level Story releases mini-mags (smaller issues), one shot articles / essays, blogs, a podcast, and some video content on YouTube and Twitch.


Level Story believes our diversity is what makes us stronger. This is a safe space for everyone. We do not tolerate racism, homophobia, transphobia, sexism, or any type of bigotry. Video games are for everyone and our aim is to capture a variety of perspectives. Those who disagree with this will not be tolerated in the comments or other Level Story spaces such as Twitch, YouTube, or Discord.


Level Story aims to offer thought provoking and high quality games writing. If some content does not uphold our standards in any way, we encourage you to reach out to us and let us know how we can do better.


Level Story is a personal project and put together by one person, with the help of some fantastic contributing writers and our generous patrons. Our content is free to read / experience online and we want to keep it that way. If you would like to support our content, consider subscribing to the magazine on Patreon. Becoming a subscriber offers some unique perks such as monthly hangouts on Discord, access to content prior to anyone else, and articles / essays exclusive to Patreon.
