What we expect of you
We would expect 10 features per month – this would include guides, lists, reviews etc.
In some cases, we will send you a review code for a game. In this case, we would expect at least one review, and one guide/feature.
Have fun! At the end of the day, our site is meant to be fun, so it makes sense that our writers are having fun at the same time, right?
We focus on Asian video games and anime, and whilst we do cover a lot of news, we like to have a bit of fun at the same time. We’re happy to get weird and a little bit crazy, and we like to scour the web for really strange things that we think our audience will find hilarious. When we’re not being silly, we like to write actual, serious reviews and opinion pieces.
If you think you have the range to get weird, but also get your head down and put together a well-thought out review, list or feature, get in touch. We’re very much open to letting you be creative, and we can’t wait to hear your ideas. We have very little limits.
You will be paid on a monthly retainer basis. More details on this will be discussed during the application process.
If you don’t hear back from us, don’t worry – we’ll be keeping a record of every applicant for future opportunities, and we’ll be in touch.
