The Drastik Measure was founded by Chris aka Draul in 2012. It originally started as a Tumblr blog. Draul wanted to turn it into something more, something bigger. In 2013 Draul started a GoFundMe page to help make his dream a reality. He raised nearly 300 dollars. This helped him obtain the TDM domain and hosting, contacts, giveaways to bring in interest early, and computer updates so he could get the best experiences hardware-wise.




Draul has been a gamer since he was 6. Currently 37. He is the Founder and Co-Owner of The Drastik Measure and Moé Reviews. He has some college experience in Game Design from Full Sail University and has some experience in professional QA Testing. Not to mention the hundreds of games he has alpha or beta tested just because he could. Favorite series of games are Dragon Age, Darksiders, Saints Row, Diablo, and Final Fantasy. His favorite MMORPG of all time is Star Wars Galaxies! Follow him on Twitter @TDM_Draul




Jon, aka Lolinia, aka TaisiHyuuga is a former Co-Owner of The Drastik Measure, now currently residing as a member of TDM’s Board of Directors. He has put so much time and effort into keeping the site alive and putting up content. He deserved the title.  Lolinia is what Draul calls “Our Native Visual Novel Gamer”. Meaning that dude loves Visual Novels.  Lolinia is the Lead and Co-Founder of TDM’s niche sister site Moé Reviews.  Follow him on Twitter @TaisiHyuuga


May He Rest in Peace

Adarkchylde was a gamer since the early days of home computing – we are talking c64 here folks. He was a huge fan of RPG and strategy games and a big supporter of Indie games and crowdfunding them. He had been around the block more than a bit, both as an IT Technician for a couple of decades and a Movie Reviewer back in his home country. In his later days, his love of gaming took priority over his love of movies. His love for both the big and small screen still burns as bright as ever. He was a Co-Owner of TDM and Co-Founder of Drastik Moe/Moé Reviews.



DarkLunarDude aka DLD is a member of the Board of Directors and reviewer for The Drastik Measure. Since joining The Drastik Measure, he has put in more than his fair share of reviews and content into the TDM website. A friend to both Draul and Lolinia, he is willing to play just about anything and everything if it needs a review, with a heavy focus on anime or visual novel-style games. DarkLunarDude is currently on hiatus from college but has an AS in computer science within the network administration field. Follow him on Twitter at @DarkLunarDude
