“As the line between Mobile and PC /Console continue to blur, the portability and accessibility of mobile creates an even brighter future for competitive gaming and E-Sports”
Gamelynx CEO Alexander Mistakidis
After raising $1.2 Million, the Santa Monica Start up Gamelynx is attempting their rendition of a viable E-sports game on Mobile devices.
Backed by Investors like Riot Games, Y Combinator, Skycatcher and M Ventures, according to Venturebeat.com the company plans on making a mobile game strictly for the hardcore with a fast-paced competitive component to it.
The strategy is interesting as this company looks to completely neglect the engagement post i wrote early and the difficulty in maintaining interest in a Actively engagement product.
Gamelynx CEO has mentioned that the lines are getting blurred between Mobile and PC which is true but anticipating that a mobile product will be just as viable ‘in terms of experience’ as a PC / Console game is something i don’t see happening in the next 2 -5 years. I mean fundamentally, how does a a touch control scheme ever compete with a Mouse ‘micro’ management system.
If Gamelynx has the idea ill be very interested to know, but as for now i’ll stay on the sideline and just watch like a fan.
