About Play Diaries

Play Diaries is a website that focuses on producing long-form content in written or audio form about games, the stories behind them, the people making them, the culture surrounding them and taking a unusual critical eye on them than anywhere else.

The core aim of the site is through storytelling (the people behind the games, the difficulties in making a game, the tolls in making them), whether long-form writing or long-form podcasting, with a 50/50 focus (or close to 50/50 at least) on coverage between AAA and indie. Doesn’t matter if it’s the next big AAA game being made in Montreal or LA, being made by 200-300 people, to a small indie team of three or four in London and those inbetween, the story is the same: to find an interesting and compelling story to cover about that game.

Not just game development too, but also with games culture. Like a community trying to find secrets within a game or roleplaying communities on Twitch or IRL. The possibilities are endless in that regard. News will also be a part of the site, but it’ll be more curated.

Any funds from Patreon will help provide a wage to editor-in-chief Johnny Cullen as he's running the show solo as well as to pay freelancers to write for the site, to help with upkeep for the site and hosting plus the other administrative stuff tied to it and to travel to events to help bring some of these aforementioned stories to the site, from not just the big events like E3, GDC, PAX, Paris Games Week or gamescom but to smaller events like A MAZE in Berlin, Euro Indiecade in Paris, EGX Rezzed in London.

We truly believe there is nothing better than a good story. And that's what we're all about with Play Diaries.
