I love Kickstarter success stories, and Video Game High School is one of the best examples. Freddie Wong has been known on YouTube.com for a long time, but when he wanted to make a full length web sit-com he didn’t have the money, so he turned to Kickstarter.
He has funded two seasons of this show, and they are both very funny. They take place in a near future where all sports have been replaced by Video Games, and there are special schools setup to develop young talent. It is a pretty standard teen/high school comedy, but the video game twist makes it fun.
If you are looking for something to watch it is streaming just about everywhere, and I have enjoyed it quite a bit. I can’t wait for season three.
If you don’t know who Freddie Wong is here is one of my favorite things he did before VGHS:
