It’s simple: write something interesting that’s gaming-related, work with us a little to get it posted on the site and receive a FREE* game (*no bullshit). Yes, this is basically like blogging, only with some standards and with a tangible reward. You don’t have to have written anything ever before, hell, you don’t even have to speak English to try. We’ll work with you!
What to Submit?
A list, an interview, a review, an observation, whatever, as long as it is informative, fun, and about video games. (exceptions are possible)
How to Submit?
Paste your goods into the comment section of this very page. They will all be seen and read, and if there is potential, we will reply with some feedback. You can also send us a link to your work on Twitter (posted on the main page).
A couple of days after your article goes up, assuming there are no complaints (like you stole it or your facts are completely wrong) you will receive a free Steam game. No cheap or obscure stuff; proper AAA titles will be offered and you can select from a number of them.
You might have noticed that we do not post ads or sell anything. We simply give away free games for your blog entries on the site. Why would we do that? First, we are totally not actual aliens. Second, we are totally not collecting your thoughts to prepare for any purges. We just want to have a place where gamers are the ones under the spotlight, a place where gamers think and research before getting under that spotlight, and a place with awesome content that’s fun to read while you poo. Also, here’s why.
Your work needs to be original. If your article is accepted, it becomes a part of AlienLion.com (your name will be displayed, of course), meaning that you cannot post it anywhere else, including your own blog. You are free to link and refer to the featured articles, of course. If your work is not posted, you are free to do whatever you want with it, no matter if we (or anyone else) have provided feedback or not.
