Nitchigamer: How Are You Different To All The Rest?

Good question. At Nitchigamer we value niche games loved by a cult following, obscure titles that have no attention at all, or games that just scream ‘unique’ – that’s our area.

We make it our mission to focus on the little guys a bit more than others too: the game developers of tomorrow. That’s why you’ll find a free and dedicated indie dev directory on our site that highlights them. Discover their hidden gems, you may be surprised at what you find.

We aim to bring a more upbeat approach to the ongoing world of video games and the many exciting stories that they tell. That’s why we play games after all isn’t it – for fun?

So in a nutshell, this is who we are:

  • We focus more on niche, independent, experimental or unique games. Both AAA and indie.
  • We bring an optimistic approach to the games industry – wherever possible. It’s not all unpleasant and nasty!
  • We’re about video games more than anything else. You won’t find reviews of TV shows here – why would you anyway?

We hope you enjoy reading Nitchigamer! Yes you, the one reading this sentence right about now.
