Pitch us

We want your

At Overlode, we want to discover the next great games writers. As such, we’re permanently open to pitches. While we can’t pay as much as the world’s biggest sites, we have a modest budget to ensure that all of our contributors are compensated for their work.

As such, you don’t have to show us a big byline to be considered for a commission. Whether it’s something from a personal blog, or even a word document attached to your email, just show me you can write, no matter the venue. 

For features: please send a few lines or bullet points (not 5 paragraphs) outlining your pitch. The best way to catch my attention is with a short premise. I’m looking for obscure gaming stories, personal experiences and even the dreaded “hot take”. Tell me something interesting. 

For reviews: typically they’ll be handled by a founder, but if you want to review a game that’s less than a month away from release, it’s always worth reaching out in case we’re not planning to cover it. Again, we’re not looking for handfuls of experience or those big bylines; tell me why you’re the person I should trust with the review. 

TLDR: A few lines outlining the idea and some proof you can string words together. We have money to give you.
