Checkpoint Ltyentye a new gaming channel from Indigenous youth in Central Australia

Checkpoint Ltyentye is a new gaming YouTube channel from Catholic Care NT and features a cast of Indigenous youth from Central Australia.

As reported by the ABC (via Kotaku AU), Checkpoint Ltyentye is filmed in Ltyentye Apurte, a small town approximately 80 kilometres south-east of Alice Springs. The series — currently at six episodes — is hosted by Tevice ‘Device’ Ronson and is produced by Joshua Tilmouth.

Episodes are filmed in Catholic Care NT’s media hub, where castmembers will take turns playing an episode’s featured game before sitting down to discuss it. Featured titles include the likes of Mortal Kombat 11, God of War, Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled, Beat Saber, Racket Fury and Until Dawn Rush of Blood.

Device told the ABC that he’s taking part in the initiative to help inspire fellow Indigenous youth.

“I want help other young people like me be famous for something they want to do in life,” he said.

We’ve embedded episode one for you below; the rest of the series can be found on the Lytente Apurte TV YouTube channel.
