We often find ourselves browsing over the Game Set Watch website for the past couple of years. But things have started to get a bit busier for the writers of the video game website, with some having full time jobs, running Gamasutra, Game Developing, and eventually overseeing lots of products, including the GDC shows.
So why are they closing?
Game Set Watch have said, ‘Well mainly, we’re seeing an increasing overlap with sister site IndieGames.com, just in terms of some of the best material out there being indie-related. So Danny is going to go and blog over there, while Eric comes back to help us a bit more on mothership site Gamasutra‘.
‘But we also think that mainstream game blogs are doing a much better job nowadays of including the weirder and alt.links in amongst their gaming news. So it’s not like GSW is _irrelevant_ as such. But it’s never really been that relevant to start with – it’s always been an entertaining fripperie‘.
Fromk GGUK, : It’s really a shame to see them go as we have followed their magnificent work over the years. We want to thank them for some incredible content and wish them the best for the future, as we go and cry in a small corner.
