Hey PR guys and Developers!
So you’ve found GamingHUD.com? Great, welcome to the site! Without going into too much detail, (You can read our about us page here or check out our staff here) we are a gaming site that covers any and all platforms without discrimination, from the most independent of indie games, right up to the triple AAA titles of the mainstream. We’re also all volunteers. What does this mean? That means our staff don’t get paid (Insert sad face here) and give up their own free time because they are passionate about games. And this is a good thing! As it stands right now, we review games that we buy (if they aren’t free, that is) and that’s the reality of the situation – it limits our focus just a little. That’s where you guys come in, though!
Please keep the following in mind:
1) If you’d like us to review your game; please be clear on the platform. Because our writers are volunteers from all over the globe and we WANT to review your game, it’s up to Dean to make sure your game gets to the right writer. So when contacting us (see down below for contact email), please be sure to give us as much info as possible, particularly the platform(s) you’d like the game reviewed on. Ultimately this will make it easier for all involved. (If you’re a MUD dev, there’s a separate contact email – this will be at the very bottom of the post).
2) Want us to write about your game (read: previews)? There needs to be something to write about! I made a game, write about it just won’t cut it (sorry). If possible, provide as much details about the game as you can or even better, send us a playable version. At the very least, send us a video. Remember, we’re volunteers and although we’re not lazy (Scout’s honour), we’ll be covering the games that make it easier for us to write about.
3) Conversely, don’t send us essays about your game. Slaving over a mail for hours upon hours is just going to waste your time if anything Be clear and concise. What’s key is that you provide us with a concrete sense about your game, as quickly as possible. Our writers will research as necessary, so don’t worry about that bit.
This is how you can contact us, we’ll even try and get individual writers hooked up with you that we feel would be the best suite for you and us (we’re great like that! Feel free to hit ‘em up on twitter or elsewhere too.). If you could add us to your mailing lists, that’d be awesome. If you’d like to put us on your preview/review lists, so we can write up our thoughts about them without pestering you guys, that’d be super awesome.
(If you’re a MUD dev and would like your MUD reviewed, please contact us at this address)
