Our names are Christian Vaz and Emma Matthews and we are the owners of Erased Citizens.
When we started working in the games press three years ago as freelancers, there were fewer women and people of colour in the industry. We felt like the name Erased Citizens represents us accurately. There are a few other reasons why we picked this name, not only because we like the song (Citizen Erased) by Muse, but also because it matches our initials.
Over the past few years we’ve gained extensive experience in the games industry press, writing for a number of large gaming publications including: Future Publishing, Greenlit Content, Metabomb, GamesTM, PCGamesN, Wccftech, and more.
Since 2015 we’ve also been attempting to grow our own brand through our website and YouTube channel, publishing reviews and preview material alongside our freelance work.
We’ve been streaming semi-regularly for the past year. You can find our stream on Twitch.TV, weekdays from 12pm.
