About Us

Play Without Apology is a website and network dedicated to gaming, fandom, and real-world issues that affect both geeks and gamers.

We are brute force honest about trying to rise above the noise of usual pop culture, geek, and fandom media. We talk gameplay and graphics and kick-tastic gaming experiences and draw more from it — academic, emotional, and artistic.

“Play Without Apology” because it’s about embracing who we are.

This is how we play.


Play Without Apology was founded by Denice De Guzman, Mia Marci and Pam Punzalan, and previously went under the name Girls Got Game. The site officially respawned under its new name in March 2018.




We’ve got a great team of volunteer contributors and creatives who are passionate about creating meaningful content. To get to know our volunteer staff, please refer to this page! That said, if you’re interested in contributing to the site, please go here.
