What Is Invisible Gamer?

Here at Invisible Gamer, we know the pain of pitching story after story to the big guys, only to be met with rejection (or worse – silence.) We know there are great writers out there with voices that deserve to be heard. We know games, and we know you do too.

So we want to hear from you. Got an idea for a story? Write it up and send it our way. If we like what we see, we’ll add you to our roster of regular writers and give you a place for your talents to shine. And if we don’t think you’re up to snuff, we’ll work with you to help you figure out what’s missing…but only if you want our help.

And hey — if you just want to use Invisible Gamer as a way to boost your resume — great! We want to see you succeed, and if we can help you do that, we’ve done our jobs.

Who Is Invisible Gamer?

Michael Burns is the Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Invisible Gamer, and a contributor to sites like IGN, NWR, and the sadly defunct 1UP.  He’s the guy on the F train in NYC dropping F-bombs on all the StreetPassers who dare show up on his 3DS without a new puzzle piece. Follow him on Twitter @nvsblgamer.





Managing Editor Gabe Gurwin memorizes vast amounts of Metacritic scores for no reason and enjoys listening to blink-182 while reading video game tie-in novels. He hates mayonnaise and loves pretty much anything Christopher Nolan gets his hands on. When he’s not playing Splinter Cell, Halo, Ghost Recon or Castlevania, he’s probably offending you over on Twitter @gamingangelgabe. Once you get over your delicate sensibilities, you should also check out his work at Digital Trends.




Austin Clark is our Features Editor and currently pens a fun weekly piece called Retro Weekend. A gamer for as long as he can remember, he currently balances his life between his baby daughter, his girlfriend, day jobs, video games, consuming anything Japanese, and anything else he can cram inside 24 hours. His favorite games include Super Mario World, Metal Gear Solid, and Final Fantasy VII. Follow him on Twitter @AesopB3EF!



Seth Scott has written his fair share of news and reviews for Invisible Gamer, but he’s made countless invaluable contributions to the site, from designing logos and composing original music for our podcasts, to lending his own unique insights and humor to discussions of some of our favorite games and helping out other Invisible Gamer staff on their own creative ventures. An MFA candidate at NYU Game Center, Seth is currently putting his passion for storytelling and art into practice as a game designer. Check out his most recent release CMYK. over on the App Store, and give him a shout on Twitter at @sssetz.



News Editor Tristan Ettleman likes to think he’s funny, but the jury’s still out on that one. He writes about games, listens to music, and hosts a fantastic podcast about human beings called The Butterfly Effect. You can follow his late-night ramblings on Twitter at @ettletodd, but we wouldn’t recommend it.





Amy Elyse Brighter is the host and producer of our video series, Kicked, where she digs through Kickstarter looking for all the games you didn’t know you wanted to fund. She can be found on Twitter and Tumblr, where she’s happy to talk about the endless list of recipes she wants to try and her favorite mythological stories. Her favorite games include Starbound, Journey and Persona 4. When not gaming, she can be found… still gaming, mostly through tabletop and pen-and-paper RPGs.



Jonah Ort picked up his first game controller in 1997 and has been hooked ever since. Although he has a love for first-person shooters and racing games, he enjoys any game that’s fun and makes him think. When he’s not playing games, Jonah’s usually listening to records or writing poetry. He’s also our social media guy, so send us a shout @Invisible_Gamer and maybe he’ll favorite it!
