As some of you may know already, Exclusively Games - one of the sites I worked with - sadly closed its doors in May of 2020 due to unsustainable running costs.
Video by Exclusively Games' Founder Jeremy Hambly explaining the situation
Although the site was dormant - i.e. no new content being added, it remained accessible throughout June. However, sometime in July the site was taken down and visitors were greeted with the screenshots below.
Hopefully this will only be a temporary situation. In the meantime, this leaves all the articles published on the site - by all its authors - out of reach and inaccessible.
As a workaround, I will be re-publishing the articles here so that they remain available to the public. (I still have their original Word .doc drafts on my HDD, so it should be a simple ‘copy n’ paste’ exercise – yay for weaponised OCD 😉).
The title images may be different for some due to my not possessing the original title images - those were chosen by Exclusively Game's Editor post-submission.
Some articles may be 'tidied up' and amended to take into account events that may have occurred between their original publish date and the present.
NB - these articles are in US / American English (As per Exclusively Game's style guide.)
If / when Exclusively Games reboots I will of course remove these articles from Nomads Review's to avoid any conflict of interest.
I am happy to host the articles written by the other Ex-Exclusively Games writers too, so if you are reading this and happen to be one of my former stablemates, or know someone who is, feel free to get in touch.
All the best everyone!

Remember to follow the site on Facebook, Twitter and become a member so you never miss an article. If trying to find the site via Google, search for ‘nomads technology reviews’ to skip a page worth of backpacking sites.
The site is not funded via ads; therefore it is reliant on community funding to keep running. Therefore, if you like what you see, please consider supporting my work via Patreon, PayPal or SubscribeStar. This would help to support the site’s ongoing work to preserve video game history, promote excellence in video game design, and champion accessibility features so that games can be enjoyed by all. Many thanks in advance.
