The Vamers Story

Established in 2011, Vamers is fully independent. We proud ourselves on adhering to a strict code of conduct to ensure our opinions are as truthful, unbiased, accurate and informative as possible. All published works are subject to a thorough and academic editing process. Although we prefer to operate advertisement free, we do on occasion accept and always fully disclose, paid for work. However, we never accept payment of any kind for reviews.

For the curious, 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 from within South Africa and abroad. Over time, however, the needs and interests of our audience began to change and our focus moved from only video games and technology to encompassing the global geekosphere.

With the above in mind, Vamers is best described as a website focussed on exploring and producing unique, accurate and entertaining geek culture content. Whether readers are looking to better understand Japan’s latest craze or find which theatrical production is worth their moola, we have everyones geek needs covered.
