About

Find out more information about Gamer Network

History

Gamer Network was founded in 1999 by brothers Rupert and Nick Loman

Prior to founding the company, the brothers played a lot of network and online games like Duke Nukem 3D and Quake II, and their love for competitive multiplayer video games led them to organise their own events.

After realising they were better at organising than competing, they decided to create an online games business, together with friends from the gaming community. Several years later (paying the bills by designing websites and games middleware) they decided to focus purely on games media.

On completing medical school, Nick left the business in 2004 to pursue his career in medicine and competitive BBQ, leaving Rupert to take the business forward. In the following years the company has grown to over 50 full-time employees and remains at the forefront of games websites and events globally.
