We’ve steadily built GamesBeat into a respected and well-read section of VentureBeat over the past few years and are now going to add to that. We’re looking for talented writers who are passionate about the business and innovations in games, and we’re also looking for game reviewers and videographers. We’re looking for both external freelancers and a staff writer.

Our games coverage ranges from stories on game startups and fundings to stories about the innovations happening at the biggest game companies and the march of gamification into the larger economy. We’ll cover the whole spectrum of the game industry, including disruptive new business models and new technologies. We will create a separate site for GamesBeat and will run more game reviews and other news of interest for game players as well. We are starting out small and plan to grow the business into something cool.

Our Batman Arkham City review is an example of the kind of writing we are looking for.

We want to tell you how the news matters to you -- not just as a decision-maker at a game studio, but also as a fan of games. Whether you read our articles, listen to our podcasts, or watch our videos, GamesBeat will help you learn about the industry and enjoy engaging with it. How will you do that? Membership includes access to:
  • Newsletters, such as DeanBeat
  • The wonderful, educational, and fun speakers at our events
  • Networking opportunities
  • Special members-only interviews, chats, and "open office" events with GamesBeat staff
  • Chatting with community members, GamesBeat staff, and other guests in our Discord
  • And maybe even a fun prize or two
