Meet The Team
Edd set up VG Almanac in late-2014, with the first article being published in February of 2015. The idea behind the site was simple – he wanted to get through his sizeable Steam library of games to justify the fact that he spent money (earned from his teen years selling kisses on the streets) for all of them. Unfortunately, four years on, this has yet to happen. Edd’s love of gaming has been a constant throughout his life, starting in the mid-90s with the old Humongous Entertainment games, all the way to present day, where he is usually found thumbing through player profiles on Football Manager.
Jake joined VG Almanac in September 2018 after threatening the right people. Years of writing for various freelance indie websites, as well as big-name YouTube channels like GVMERS and Top Lists, was more than enough proof that the lad prefers to relentlessly talk about games rather than get a social life. Not only is Jake a freelance voice actor, but he’s also a commercial radio DJ on Siren Radio (where he was nicknamed ‘Jake The Voice’ by the boss because of his distinctive voice), and has presented the popular video game-centric radio show The Cyber Den on it for well over half a decade. Simply put, he’s big, he’s bad – he is your dad.
Deuterium the Sentient Mattress
Deuterium is an oddly-named fellow from the Midlands, currently living in Wales, who intermittently reviews games and criticises children’s shows for being either dated or factually inaccurate. A big fan of shooters, racing games and anything else that can pique his interest, Deut’s Steam library exceeds 2,000 games – and he’s only played about a third of them, as is tradition. His gaming life began when he was very young with educational games the likes of More Bugs in Boxes as well as some of the older Lego games, though it really started to kick off when he was introduced to the PlayStation and Game Boy through his school’s after-school club.
