Press Release2020/11/20

GameWith, Inc. (Head office: Minato-ku, Tokyo; Representative and President: Takuya Imaizumi; Securities code: 6552) is pleased to announce that we are now recruiting dedicated gamers across Japan for a new job position: “Gameplay Worker.” This position calls for a dedicated gamer to analyze limited time events and missions while also checking the specs of new playable characters (stats and versatility) in order to promptly post strategies on the website.

 

Contrary to “Game Strategy Writers” who are required to commute to the Tokyo office, “Gameplay Workers” can entirely work from home, giving them incredible freedom to write strategies from anywhere.

Background

Given the recent self-quarantine measures in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been an increase in people who spend their time gaming at home. In a survey conducted in June 2020 by GameWith, “Gaming experience amidst the COVID-19 pandemic*,” approximately 60% answered that their time spent on gaming has increased. When asked what activities they wished existed, the majority answered, “Making money while gaming (59.2%).” Given the results of the survey and the growing demand for work-from-home positions, we have created a system that allows those with no writing experiences, looking for side jobs, or wanting to work from home to share gaming tips with the community while also enjoying games.

* “A Survey regarding Gaming Experience amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic Administered to Approx. 4,000 Persons,” GameWith release dated September 3, 2020 (gamewith.co.jp/3261)
