Saad is a Computer Sciences enthusiast who has been playing games since his childhood. A huge fan of MOBAs like Dota 2, he’s a tech geek with a love for gaming at heart!



Nikola Stefanovic

Nikola, aka Nidzan online, was born in Europe and although he doesn’t remember much from his early childhood, he does remember getting an NES controller in his hands at the age of two. After that, one console led to another, franchise mascots were born and abandoned, and the rest is history. Today, Nidzan spends most of his time either playing a wide variety of video games or writing articles about them.


Waleed Madni

Waleed is an avid gamer with an affinity for Tech and PC hardware. He loves fiddling with computers and testing various PC components. By bringing his practical knowledge into jargon-free writing, Waleed wants to make PCs accessible to everyone. When not writing, you find Waleed screaming at the screen while playing FPS games or researching a new part for his PC build.


Helmi Chaieb

Helmi is an ambitious writer, a passionate gamer, and a world-building enthusiast. He fell in love with storytelling ever since he was a kid with a PS2 and a DVD player.

Today, he likes annoying people with whatever interesting detail that pops up in his mind about video games, movies, and the stories he writes himself.

He lives by J.R.R. Tolkien’s quote, “Not all who wander are lost.” He also doesn’t waste an opportunity to learn about video games so that he gets to do for other “wanderers” what the likes of Cory Barlog, George R.R. Martin, and Tolkien did for him.
