Established by William Kirk in 2012, GameCloud Australia is an online media outlet based in Perth, Western Australia. Run by local volunteers, it is our mission to represent Perth within the global games industry. We do not operate for profit, but we do aim to provide our readers with a unique and genuine perspective on anything gaming related.
Basically, we’re just a group of passionate writers who do this because we believe that video games are the greatest form of creative expression. In turn, we strongly support the notion that the games industry needs an honest voice free from bias, and we aim to deliver that with detailed reviews and original content that’s uninfluenced by profiteering.
About Our Reviews
Assigning numbers to a game can be a fickle business, but we feel that it’s still ultimately a vital part of the industry at this time. With this in mind, we set out to create a review system that doesn’t simply translate from opinion to a single digit. GameCloud Australia critiques games using several fundamental categories as this allows us to highlight the various strengths and weaknesses of a game without putting all of our focus on an overall score. In addition, we also try to ensure every game we review is assigned to the writer with the most experience that game’s specific genre. We highly value the growing collective of expertise within our team, and aim to deliver only the most genuine impressions.

Safe Space Policy
The symbol in our footer exists to represent our safe space policy. Basically, it our way of saying that we, the team at GameCloud Australia, are not okay with inequality within the games industry. It is not meant as a statement in response to any issue in particular, but instead a simple reminder: this is a safe space for everyone, and we aim to spread the ideals of an all-encompassing online community.
