THE VAMERS STORY

The name Vamers is an amalgamation of the words ‘video’ and ‘gamers’, whereby the original premise of the site was to focus exclusively on video game culture in South Africa. Over time, however, the needs and interests of our audience began to change and our focus moved from only video games and technology to that of the all encompassing global geekosphere.

Vamers is best described as a website that enjoys exploring and reporting on popular geek culture in an entertaining and appealing way. So whether you are looking to better understand Japan’s latest craze or find out which theatrical production in Johannesburg is worth your moola, we have your geek needs covered.

Meet the Vamers Crew

Owner, founder, editor and contributor at Vamers, Hans has a vested interest in geek culture and the interactive entertainment industry. With a Masters degree in Communications and Ludology, he is well read and versed in matters relating to video games and communication media, among many other topics of interest.
From Superman to Ironman; Bill Rizer to Sam Fisher and everything in-between, Edward loves it all. He is a Bachelor of Arts student and English Major specialising in Language and Literature. He is an avid writer and casual social networker with a flare for all things tech related.
From the magic of the Harry Potter saga through to the trials and tribulations of The Hunger Games, Diona adores losing herself in fictional worlds of magic, love and hope. She is currently a Bachelor of Social Science student with a specialisation in Communications and Media, and hopes to one day be the star of her very own 'talk show'.
Tiffany is a witty and rock loving musician who knows more about drums than she does about Google. Her lightning fast and tightly controlled musical reflexes ensure that she stays one step ahead of the Dyad Corporation and their evil Neolution endeavours.
Admin wizard by day, stargazer by night, and bibliophile by choice; Maxi is a thirty-something echo boomer (millennial) with a penchant for spending time seeking to prove the existence of the X-gene and figuring out how to get beamed aboard the Enterprise.
Dani is an avid coffee drinker (some might even use the word 'addict') who lives life to the fullest. She enjoys getting lost in television series ranging from The Big Bang Theory and Game of Thrones to Attack on Titan and One Punch Man. She is currently a Bachelor of Arts student majoring in Psychology and Linguistics with the hopes of one day opening her own practice.
When not in a game of Overwatch playing as a D.Va main, Taygan can be found creating new universes in Minecraft or losing himself in various Anime worlds. He is a natural techie at heart, and thoroughly enjoys building weird and wonderful contraptions - some ingenious, others that explode.
