Introducing GameSkinny, the Place Where Gamers Get Heard

Community-Driven Publishing Platform Gives a Voice to All, Because Obscurity Sucks

RICHMOND, VA--(Marketwire - Jan 24, 2013) - GameSkinny, an innovative new publishing platform where gamers -- anyone regardless of age or platform -- discover, create and promote their voice to the gaming community, announced its public beta today. The site's creators believe gamers are the true voice of the industry and invite passionate players to contribute all forms of content including articles, videos, reviews, how-to's, and more at

"Gamers are the real experts. Whether you're into social, console or online, most people who start a blog, vlog or other independent publishing endeavor wind up creating great material that never gets its due. GameSkinny puts a stop to that," said Amy White, Senior Editor at GameSkinny. "Our community gets great content from people who care about games the same way they do and our contributors get the support they need to hone their skills, gaining exposure to an ever-increasing audience."

Gamers can create and promote their voice online through a platform that was built from the ground up to showcase their passion, commitment and knowledge of all things gaming. GameSkinny allows contributors to instantly discover and groom their personality, open their posts up to discussion, and interact with thousands of readers. Contributors are encouraged to publish as much or as little as they want, knowing the best content will rise to the top, gaining more traction and viewership, as well as provoking discussion and debate. 

"As an early contributor, I've seen the site take its first steps toward evolving into a very smart, eclectic and vibrant society of budding wordsmiths who will provide all types of entertaining material and interactive discussions you won't get anywhere else," said writer Mat Westhorpe. "In the world of gaming culture, the line between writing the news and being the news has never been more blurred and I think GameSkinny is on the cusp of delivering something unique."

GameSkinny kicks down the publishing barrier by making it simple for gamers to start contributing, without any technical publishing skills. Once submitted, each piece of content is reviewed and optimized by GameSkinny's editorial team before being unleashed on the community for review and discussion. Designed with search and sharing in mind, GameSkinny ensures that strong content gets the visibility it deserves and contributors get noticed.
