Niche Gamer (pronunciation: niCH, gey-mer)


  1. A website that is home to the more unique games, regardless of genre, origin, or development platform.
  2. An individual who loves video games that are more unique, specialized, or simply not covered as much.

We’re the premiere source and community for both niche and unique games across the globe. Most consider us a band of outlaws, yet all are welcome. We fight for a better gaming industry – we’re a company run by true gamers who love games. We’re independently owned and answer to absolutely no one when it comes to what games we cover, and the way in which we cover them.

We’re proud to be based out of Philadelphia – the birthplace of American freedom, although we cover games from all over the world. We are committed to bringing you original content, insightful opinions and the full and accurate news without any fluff or agendas.

Niche Gamer is the pipe dream of Brandon Orselli, a lifetime gamer, hobbyist, activist, and game design student graduate. It wasn’t until June 2013 that the inspiration finally hit him to start a new site dedicated to the games that tend to get Brandon the most excited—the more unknown games.

Niche games, specialized games, weird games—whatever you want to call them, we love them and we want more people to know about them, and hopefully enjoy them, too.

Getting the site and its content exactly how we want it has been quite a ride, and we’ve been loving it!
