GameGrooves originally began as GameLark Gazette in the Fall of 2018. The name changed in July 2019, but the mission remained the same: share videogame music with anyone who will listen to it. The videogame music community may be small, and it may be niche, but it’s full of fans, composers, and cover artists that all share a similar passion. That passion unites, and GameGrooves feels that the world is a better place with VGM than without it.
