We are GamePress – a community of gamers, writers, and analysts gathered to create guides, analyses, and articles for mobile games.
Our forum community discusses the metagame, creates high-quality guides for fellow players, and answers each other’s questions.
Joining our forums grants you:
- Access to the latest metagame content from fellow players, possibly before it even goes live on our main site
- Quality discussion of game mechanics and strategy
- Writing opportunities with proper compensation, either towards you or a charity of your choice
- Direct, personal interaction with our writing team
If you would be interested in joining, please head over read our Community Rules and then pop over to the #welcome category to make a self-introduction.
Below are some testimonials from current staff on how they joined GamePress – nearly all of us were just another fan of the game who wanted to share our knowledge with everyone else.
How it all started
In the summer of 2016, Pokemon GO was released – but there just weren’t many good resources for players. Sites tended to be bloated, shallow, and profit oriented. Players needed a fan-run site that gave high quality information.
Our founder, Nick, put his in-progress computer science degree into practice - and GamePress was born as the side-project of concerned college students. Below is the first version of our site!
Our focus was – and is! – to create really amazing content and tools that people needed. We know that there’s a section of the playerbase who wants to min-max in their games and geared our site for them. But to our surprise and delight, casuals and min-maxers alike began to follow our little site! By the end of 2016, we had grown to 5 million monthly page views. That is thanks to you - all of you.
The journey up to this point has been amazing. We’ve started to support more games and a handful of us now work on GamePress full time, but the majority of us are freelancer staff who write about the games we play!
It’s our hope that GamePress will continue expanding until we cover all the games that our users need resources for. Thank you for sticking with us this far!
