ERA ERROR is a multi-national, multi-media online publication which strives to be the Video Game Industry's #1 satirical content provider; specialising as the prime source of blatantly incorrect information.

The idea for ERA ERROR lingered in the hearts of 3 casual-hardcore gamers for years until the Industry's self-righteousness eclipsed acceptable levels. In August 2017, we felt as a collective that things were escalating out of control. The majority of developers, publishers, Youtubers, streamers and media outlets were becoming unbearable. Something had to be done. We had no choice but to rise prominently from the confines of our sweaty arm-chairs, push away the Dorito's & Mountain Dew and prescribe our own concoction of mediocrity to bring everyone back down to this polluted planet known as Earth.

ERA ERROR's signature is embarrassingly shit satire. The video game industry takes itself far too seriously and we want to expose its toxic traits for all to see. It's not just the money hungry corporations at fault either. Many new age media outlets and fellow gamers alike are trying too hard to be the next big thing and have simply forgotten why they played games in the first place.

This is why we have made it our mission to represent fun and humour. We all play games to have varied, enjoyable, interactive experiences and that is exactly what we aim to bring back to the forefront of that strange industry we all want to continue loving for some reason.

Sat·ire

ˈsaˌtī(ə)r/
noun
The use of humour, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticise people's stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues.
At the very heart of satire is a strong element of truth and as a result, there will be fabrications in our content that will cut close to home. We feel it is important to exemplify potential outcomes of the future if trends continue in the same manner - both negative & positive - and the best way to do that is with exaggeration.

Strap yourself in for the most pointless, irrelevant and mediocre ride of a lifetime, the ERA ERROR is finally upon us!

DISCLAIMER: If our disgraceful content upsets you for its pathetically poor entertainment and structure, just remember that none of the contributors to this publication have any qualifications related to any field of the video game business whatsoever. We're just a bunch of losers with far too much time on our hands to be super critical of multiple people who have far more talent than we do.



The term ERA ERROR stemmed from a few things. We wanted our name to signify something about the video game industry and also be unique enough to be used as a brand. Originally we planned to call ourselves ERA83 - A reference to the infamous video game crash of 1983 that almost destroyed the entire video game landscape. We decided to keep the word ERA as it suggests that every contributor to the publication has the same mentality, concepts and values. Which at this point, is to expose the sheer absurdity of the video game world.
The word ERROR means several different things. It could be considered as a reference to the infamous Legend Of Zelda glitch "I AM ERROR". Which itself is an example that plenty of mistakes are prevalent in the business - even in masterpieces. However our concept of the word is for it to represent ourselves as delinquents who shouldn't be taken too seriously, just like our source material. Errors are going to be made. They are a part of the experience - like any glitch or bug - there to be exploited for our own amusement.

Truthfully, during our brainstorming there was never really that much thought placed into the name. It had some relevance to our intended subject matter and rolled nicely off the tongue so we decided to stick with it.

In regards to the Fluro Pink and Blue colour scheme, it was decided almost as a protest against the boring, techy themes that had consumed the industry. Fluro Pink and Blue aren't exactly synonymous with the video game industry and that's exactly why we chose them as our theme... and who doesn't love the outrageous 80's???




Say it however you like. Eeera-Errorr. Erra-Erra. That's the beauty of it. It's all wrong.
