What’s up escapees!

Since the launch of Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn, things have been really busy around these parts. Our FFXIV wiki is the best in the community, we have a group of dedicated editors constantly chatting in our forums, and we have one of the best FFXIV podcasts on the interwebs!

However, we believe that there is always room for improvement and so we’re interested  in expanding our small team here at Gamer Escape.

Read on for more more information if you’re interested!

Gamer Escape is currently looking for volunteers that can dedicate a few hours each week to improve various aspects of our website.
