Originally from Far North Queensland, Australia, Damien is an aspiring novelist currently living in London, England. As a fiction lover, he is particularly interested in stories and the way that literature intersects with games, but is also fascinated by a range of topics including travel, science, and sociology, which tend to emerge to varying degrees in his writing. His favourite games include Valkyria Chronicles, Heavy Rain, Vanquish… and Sudoku.
Rhain discovered a long time ago that mixing one of his passions (video games) with the other (writing) might be a good idea, and now he’s been stuck in the industry for over four years with no way of escaping. To make matters worse, he’s digging himself into a deeper hole by studying Journalism at the Queensland University of Technology. His favourite games are those with deep and captivating narratives: while it would take far too long to list them all, some include L.A. Noire, Red Dead Redemption, Wolfenstein: The New Order, The Last of Us, and the Uncharted series.

Pharmaceutical magazine editorial and production assistant by day, OnlySP subeditor by night, Amy McKavanagh loves words, grammar, and punctuation regardless of the publication. She was born and raised in North Queensland, Australia, where she attended primary school, high school, and university. Amy holds a Bachelor of Arts in English and Media & Writing from James Cook University. Early 2017, she packed all of her belongings into a suitcase and moved with her partner, Damien Lawardorn, to the land of tea and crumpets… and apparently lots of rain, but that doesn’t actually happen in England. She hopes to one day publish works of her own, yet, for the meantime, editing the work of others will suffice.
Arturo does a lot of video stuff. He does a lot of it for OnlySP, specifically. Arturo also likes video games. He played them growing up in Miami and still plays them near Boston. He likes thinking about video games and the future of narrative, and he’ll talk your head off about that if you get too close, so keep your distance. And don’t bring up Linux or ska either, those are rants you don’t want to get stuck in, believe you me.
Hailing from outback New South Wales, Australia, Mitchell can prattle on about science-fiction shooters and tactics-RPGs until the cows come home, but he loves to critique any game in entertaining and informative fashion. He also bears a passion for the real-life stories that emerge out of game development.
DJ is a graduate from Emerson College with a BFA in Writing, Literature, and Publishing, and is currently a Data Associate for Amazon. Besides his passion for gaming and writing, he enjoys reading, walking, and friends, and is particularly interested in philosophy and theology. His ideal job would be working as a writer on a AAA title, as well as getting a novel and some short stories published, but remains content to flex his writing muscles with game journalism and own creative works for now.
Sep Gohardani is a Brit who (unsurprisingly) loves tea. He writes features for OnlySP, splitting his time between that and writing film reviews and feature pieces. He recently completed a Master’s degree in Film Studies at the University of Edinburgh, where his dissertation focus was on the relationship between films and video games. He is often found in the aisle seat at the cinema or staring at a screen playing a game until the wee hours of the morning.
Matthew Gatchalian studied journalism in one of the oldest university of Asia to write about video games. Before becoming a news writer and editor of a gaming website, he experienced the tough life of reporting on hard news stories for a daily publication—something he’ll never consider again after he landed his dream job in video game journalism.
Also known as Twist, Jennifer is a gamer, science fiction/fantasy author, and digital artist who spent the early days of her childhood beating her stepfather’s friends at Space Invaders and Pole Position on a beat-up Atari console.
