It is with a heavy heart today that I must inform you that the games.on.net website and community will be shut down soon. You can find more information in this post here.
games.on.net and its free Steam content is the reason I first took out an Internode ADSL subscription, all the way back in 2008. I had no idea at the time that I would end up in charge of the site, or that I’d meet so many amazing people along the way.
(In fact, when an email first arrived from a stranger who told me they were my mum’s cousin, asking me if I could help out her a “friend who was looking for game reviewers”, I thought mum had passed my email address to spammers. Again.)
This job has taken me across the country. This job has made me dozens and dozens of new friends, and hundreds more community mates, whose well-aimed bullets have killed me far too many times on far too many servers to possibly mention. This job has allowed me to interview CEOs about whether their laptops will make me sterile, to trick developers into playing D&D, and to post absolute garbage every April Fool’s day (and sometimes on other days, too).
This is a good job. I am going to miss it. I am going to miss you all.
