StickTwiddlers is a gaming website created by gamers for gamers. Think of us as the Empire Records of gaming news and reviews sites.
In addition to gaming news and reviews, StickTwiddlers have run several successful gaming related events, including the hugely popular official Eurogamer Expo Afterparty which we have run with Eurogamer since 2011. Our biggest success to date was the 2012 Eurogamer Expo Afterparty sponsored by Capcom where we raised an astounding £2890.63+ for our favourite charity, SpecialEffect. We sold over 400 tickets, the max capacity for the venue, in under 6 hours and trended on Twitter during the afterparty.
Our other achievements include several holding Guinness World Records for marathon gaming, which we’re currently planning on reclaiming in 2013 along with several new ones.
Our team is made up of the cream of the weird and wonderful gaming addicts from around the world who have an intense passion for gaming and the community that surrounds it. Each one of them is dedicated to bringing you the latest news, reviews and random shenanigans from the gaming world and helping develop StickTwiddlers unique and fantastic community.
StickTwiddlers came about after a group of friends on Twitter, with a background in video game journalism, came together to combine their unique skills and talents with their united passion for gaming to create something awesome. That ‘something awesome’ is StickTwiddlers.
The website launched on 10/10/10 at 10.10am and the world as we knew it, changed forever.
