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.
