Today’s the day folks. I’m pretty excited about it and I hope you are too.

After a rather long and stressful year, I’m quite excited to start 2017 and with it, the launch of Gameumentary. We’ve been working quite hard on preparing content for you ahead of the site’s launch, and I’m happy to say the quality of work we have produced is among the best I’ve seen from my team members.

We have a wide variety of content to share with you during these first few weeks and of course even more beyond that.

I do want to stress though that Gameumentary will not be a daily news site. We may go a few days without anything to post because we are totally focused on providing you with quality content you want to read over just pushing an endless stream of content in your face.

It is our hope that with this model in place that we can keep you interested in the site based on the fact you’ll never know what to expect next from us. It’s a gamble, but if we do it right, we should surprise you again and again with the stories we produce.

There will be some bumps in the road starting out, no doubt, but I think in the long run we will show the games industry, along with others taking a chance on this sort of content like Danny O’Dwyer, that there is a place for real journalism.

We’ll let the game devs and publishers keep you up to date about all the little details regarding their games. We want to tell you about the bigger picture, and the incredible stories behind the people developing these experiences. We’re not limited to just game developers though, we have plans to talk to composers, writers, influencers and more. The possibilities are endless for us.

Gameumentary is as much a passion project for us as it is a new business. As most of you know, I grew quite tired of games journalism over the past couple years. I’ve come to realize it wasn’t games journalism I was tired of, it was merely that I wasn’t really doing journalism. Now I am, and my team and I are ready to show you what we can do.

Here’s to 2017 and beyond. I wish you all a very Happy New Year and welcome to Gameumentary.

 

A NOTE ON OUR BUSINESS MODEL

We will run advertisements on Gameumentary provided by our advertising partner, Enthusiast Gaming. As per usual with my previous sites, these ads will be unobtrusive and will be used to support the site and its writers. Maybe in the future we can remove ads altogether, but for now we will utilize them to sustain our business.

If you could make sure adblock is turned off when you visit the site, we would appreciate that to no end as our writers put hours upon hours of work into our articles and other projects.

A NOTE ON OUR WEBSITE

Some placeholder elements are still in place on the site as we await finalized ad codes and some other features.


  • May the start of Gameumentary be smooth and I look forward to its future. Happy New Year!
