Do you enjoy writing game reviews?

We are open to new reviewers joining us. Whether you have written for several websites in the past, perhaps made a few video reviews or even if you have no more experience than writing a few reviews on Steam, you are welcome to apply. You can either submit the occasional review or submit frequently as long as you can complete reviews in an agreed time frame.

Ideally reviewers will be open to reviewing most types of games. We need to give some love to the indies and the niche games, as well as the big AAA titles.

What we would like to see from applicants is an example review of approximately 750 to 1,750 words. This can be new or one you’ve previously written. Reviews should be structured, with decent spelling and grammar. Grammarly for Windows will not fix everything, but it is highly recommended to use this free software to help you catch mistakes, in addition to proofreading before submission. Questions about structure, etc are welcome.

Access to games including review keys can be provided if we can gain access to them, but we will want to see some examples of your work prior to this and would expect reviews to be completed in an agreed upon time frame. Most games we are given access to are visual novels as they are a speciality of the website or indie games, so ideally you will be interested in at least one of these categories. With that said submitting reviews for any type of game is welcome whether from your own library or a game given to via the website.

As multiple people may contribute reviews or other articles of writing to NookGaming, it should be noted that each writer holds the rights to their own written work, but grants NookGaming the permission to use it in perpetuity. This protects the content of the website, but allows writers their own rights. If requested, we can verify a writer’s content to other parties – for example if applying for a job which requires content writing and examples are needed.

Unfortunately there is no payment. This is a small website run as a project and not one which generates profit at the time of writing. If this ever changes, the subject can be revisited but it is not likely.

If this sounds like it would be something you are interested in, contact us at [email protected] for further details. You can also fill in this form to answer some of our questions in advance.
