Why should you join No Game No Talk’s growing team? Here’s three reasons:
1. We’re driven for the cause of the Southeast Asia gaming community
Since our inception in 2005, No Game No Talk has been 100% focused on the Southeast Asian gaming community. We’ve done extensive coverage of the competitive gaming scene in the region, because we believe the region is a gaming powerhouse that punches way above our weight on the world stage. We just need people to know about us.
- We were there when Sword and Taufan flew the Singapore and Malaysia flags in the Championship Gaming Series in 2008
- We were there when Xian placed third for King of Fighters XIII in Tougeki Super Battle Opera 2010
- We were there when Scythe.SG won US$150,000 for placing third in the Dota 2 International 2011
And even when we do game news and reviews, we make sure the information is highly relevant to you, and not just simply copied piecemeal from American and European websites.
2. We’re committed to quality and in for the long-term
It may come as a surprise to you, but No Game No Talk is powered entirely by volunteers and voluntary efforts at the moment*. We’ve kept to some of the highest quality of journalism despite running on “free” and are frequently the source of information and perspectives which nobody else in the world has.
And if you’re worried that we’ll disappear overnight, No Game No Talk has been running for seven years now, and we don’t intend to stop any time soon.
*No Game No Talk is run on a for-profit basis by GameSync LLP, but our current revenues are not high enough to cover our infrastructure costs. The moment we get there, the team will be the first to know.
3. We want to develop your talent to the fullest
More often than not — and we’ve been guilty of this in the past as well — when you volunteer to write for the online media, you’re thrown into the deep end of the pool and expected to swim or drown.
At No Game No Talk, we understand that even the best of us needs a guiding hand now and then. That’s why we have a structured growth and development programme which allows you to grow at your own pace and take on as much responsibility as you’re comfortable with.
We can’t promise we can pay you to write, so we’ll jolly well make sure we help you grow professionally as a writer, reporter and journalist.
