HieroGraphix Game Journal was founded in 1993 by James Garvin. Originally, HieroGraphix was a black and white print magazine, but with rising cost of print media and the pitfalls of getting information to market in a timely manner, HieroGraphix was moved from print to exclusively online. The idea behind the magazine and the website is to provide information to gamers or those who may be considering getting into the world of gaming.

Currently, HieroGraphix is owned by OMC Games Division, which also is an independent game development studio.
