There’s no news because it’s a Saturday — I don’t think we’re going to do Day in Reviews on the weekends unless there’s something mindblowingly important to share, so have some words about this site.
We’re looking for a few good devs
Since there’s nothing newsworthy today I might as well put the call out: Cordilon Gaming is looking for indie devs who would like their games to be featured. Admittedly, our reader base is small, but exposure is exposure and it helps to spread the word about both your game and our site.
The best thing you can do to get a hold of us is to email us at with the words “Dev Request” and the name of your game (and preferably your studio name if you have one) in the subject line. We’re not asking for Steam keys or Desura keys or DRM-free downloads (though that would be really cool) or something like that, just a description of your game, maybe a couple screenshots, what it’s about, what kind of game it is, and a link to it so we can play it. We want to support and help indie developers grow, and the best way we can do that is by playing your games and writing or making videos about them.
Another great thing you can do is tweet us @CordilonGaming (especially after you send an email) since we’ll get a notification about that just about instantly. You can also tweet me (Troy, @Kazinsal) or Jake (@Thexare) directly.
Much ado about advertisements
We here at Cordilon Gaming are more than aware that ads are annoying as all hell. Most people rock Adblock or something to make ads go away, myself included. We’ve all seen sites that have Adblock countermeasures that ask you nicely to please turn off the adblock so the site can stay alive. We don’t want to be that site that hammers you to turn the adblock off, but we don’t want to disappear into a hole of financial failure. So here’s the deal: we’re not going to do ads on the site for as long as we possibly can, and we’re committed to not using YouTube monetization. If we ever get to the point where either of those would be a thing to come up, we’ll figure something out and we’ll do it with the input of and feedback from readers and viewers alike.
Cordilon Gaming is a media source for people who enjoy video games by people who enjoy writing about video games. We’re not here to make money, and we’re not here to push opinions. We’re just here to be involved with gaming communities, indie games, retro games, and the people who create and support them.
