Why Gaming?

2.8 Billion people play games regularly, generating a trillion hours of activity. 

Watching gamers play video games online, is more popular than watching sports for 18-25 year olds.

The Problem

When more than 15 million undiscovered game developers and contributors across the globe are struggling to shine… And no entertainment platform exists to discover, feature, scale up, and commercialize games

Great games are lost forever
