Code of Ethics
Mendax Games and its contributors serve as journalists in the field of video game development and distribution, cinema, and technology. Though journalism already maintains an unrwritten code of ethics, the writers of this site will strive to hold ourselves to a standard befitting our audience. This standard is defined as follows: Mendax Games writers and contributors conduct interviews, review games, technology and anime, gather news and communicate with our readers. We do not, under any circumstances, hold undisclosed personal relationships, friendships, or otherwise with developers, public relations staff or publishers. If a relationship between our journalists and an aforementioned industry employee were to incur, it is to be promptly disclosed where relevant and is not to affect the biases of said contributor.
We DO NOT receive compensation from publishers to write for Mendax Games. We consider ourselves journalists in the purest definition of the word and will hold ourselves to a journalistic ethos because we each share a passion of the world of gaming, technology, comics, cinema, and anime.

All of our content will be free of any bias; opinions are specified as such, and are identified as being distinct from information that is objective.
Review and Preview Ethics
Review scores provided by the writers at Mendax Games are not influenced by any contact with either the publisher, developer, or PR firm.
In regards to items that we have helped fund, such as on Kickstarter, Indiegogo or any other crowdfunding platform, we will disclose our involvement during the review/preview.
Mendax Games will receive promotional materials from various publishers, PR firms, vendors and other, regarding the content we cover. Any physical items will remain the property of Mendax Games and will be used for review and preview purposes. Unless otherwise instructed to return, destroy or to allow said items to be used in a giveaway.
We do not accept gifts that would not otherwise be used for review and preview purposes.
We will occasionally publish sponsored content in writing or video content. This will always be explicitly clear on the content itself, as depicted as what sort of sponsored content it is.
Mendax Games will occasionally provide links to stores or product pages that include affiliate links that directly contribute to our organization monetarily. We will always clearly disclose when, if ever, these affiliate links are included in articles or in social media posts.
