Introducing Playmakers : the platform to capture, audit, reward, and implement user-generated content on any games.

40M Players create content for their favorite games : 3D characters, skins, animations, mods etc. Even if this content is super valuable for game dev teams, it's never implemented on games. The main issues are technical, legal, and financial.

Today, we're not improving the industry, we're turning it upside down. To release thousands of updates per year we are developing an infrastructure to receive, validate and implement UGC. We are helping big and small studios to turn their players into creators, by leveraging our tools.
