About Us

Our Mission

We’re passionate about games, especially indie games. Our goal is to shed a light on the world of indie gaming, inform readers on the benefits of crowdfunding, and call out any shady behavior that may seek to take advantage of customers. Does our staff have favorite developers? Of course they do! Do they back crowdfunding projects? You bet, just like they buy video games. Our staff strictly donate to campaigns, and are not equity backers, they stand to gain nothing from a games success or failure.

If you have any concerns about any of our coverage, have questions about Cliqist, or just want to say hi, email our editor at Joanna@Cliqist.com.

Our Team

Joanna Mueller



Joanna is a lifelong gamer and an aspiring animator, which means she spends way too much time obsessing about fictional worlds. Coveting well written characters and story above all else, she hopes to shine a light on games and developers who step out of the standard mold and push boundaries. Joanna figures that if you don’t live in the world you want yet, you should get out there and make a new one. Contact her at joanna@cliqist.com
