    Hi,

    I'm Simon Burns, the editor of The Smartphone App Review.

    I am starting a new gaming site VoxelArcade, within the next month and am looking for gamers wanting to write opinion pieces and reviews for the site.

    VoxelArcade will be a little bit different than most gaming sites, with no numbered scores in our reviews, an emphasis on opinion and interviews and a site design unlike any other game site. It will try to interest tired and jaded gamers fed up with big games getting sycophantic coverage.

    If interested, please contact me via the 'contact' page on The Smartphone App Review,

    Thanks

    You're really looking for people with a competent grasp of the English language on the forum?

    Not sure if I should laugh or cry.

    I'll keep an eye on this. I couldn't write a decent review to save my life though, sorry.

    @Fantomex Of course, he could always try recruiting in the comments section. Then you wouldn't need a choice. It'd be crying every time :)

    Rob, the reviews will be a small part of what we do. We really want opinion articles on current gaming events. It is also important to point out that we will have a section where old games are reviewed with new eyes, so to speak.

    What's the Xp/word? Or will we get a share of the ad revenue?

    Steve, yes there will be pay. It won't make you a living though, more as a 'thank you' token for each article you post. How much this actually is can be talked over through emails, etc.

    MoGamer, ad revenue sharing is a possibility, although we plan on only having smaller, more unobtrusive ads as much as is possible.

    I might be interested. Never written a review but I've often thought about doing so.

    I'd give it a go I'm pretty opinionated.

    If you have never written a review before, that is not a problem as we want fresh writers. I will be replying to all the emails tonight, thanks.

    We have had an incredible response in terms of emails. I have responded to each one we have received, so please check your spam or bulk folder if you think you haven't had a reply yet. If there is still nothing, then send me a DM on Eurogamer. :)

    Eww, compression artefacts on the logo image!
    Other than that the site looks good, I'm not sure I'd call it "a site design unlike any other game site" though.

    Also bookmarked. Really like the pieces up there so far and the stripped-down design makes a nice change from some of the other sites I read. If articles continue in the current vein you'll have a regular reader. Nice work :)
