If you’re working in the video game industry for a well-known company or independent studio, you would have heard of the term “crunch culture”.
Crunch culture is an issue that affects not just young people, but also workers who have been working in the video game sector for years.
In this short audio explainer, Umar Hassan explains what the term crunch culture means and how crunch is used in the video game industry.
During the coronavirus pandemic, video games have played a major role in helping millions stay connected with friends, family members, and work colleagues.
A report from Robert Walters and Vacancysoft noted that 47,000 people are employed directly and indirectly in the video game sector in the United Kingdom, which includes sectors such as merchandising and eSports.
The issue of crunch is not new in video game development, and goes way back to November 2004 when an anonymous letter was posted by EA Spouse around working practices at Electronic Arts.

This issue is not new and goes back to the 1970s, when information and communication technologies (ICT) first emerged in that decade. Fast-forward to the 2020s and many people remain digitally excluded in the UK.

This video by BBC Newsnight on their YouTube channel investigates how more than 1,500 children who have special educational needs and disabilities (SEND) have no school place in England.
It’s a great example of how this investigation uses video to illustrate the issue of how pupils with SEND are being ‘squeezed’ out of school. If this investigation was covered in a different medium (audio or text), it would lack the same impact that this Newsnight video report achieves.
BBC Newsnight is a news and current affairs programme so its audience is more likely to be constructed towards older people in…
