Archived: GameTree – The Social Network for Gamers: We are increasing the connectivity between people through the venue of games and play.

iCrowdNewswire - May 25, 2016


The Social Network for Gamers

www.gametree.me Solana Beach, CA


A gamer network for everybody.



“As the world of gaming gets more crowded, and more noisy, it has become harder for all of us to find the games we will enjoy the most, and even harder to find like-minded players to enjoy them with. GameTree has the potential to be a revolutionary social network that is based both on the secrets of player psychology and our deep love of games.”

-Jesse Schell

The Art of Game Design

“A lot of people’s favorite stores are getting flooded, and it’s getting harder and harder to find the things they’d be interested in amongst the sea of things they just really don’t care about.”

-James Portnow

Extra Credits

“Playing with real-life friends and family is better than playing alone all the time, or with strangers.”

-Jane McGonigal

Personalized Hub For All Things Gaming

If you love gaming as much as we do let’s join together to create a world where finding new best friends and new favorite games to play with them is easy.

The process starts with you. What is your definition of fun? How competitive are you? Do you crave fellowship? Do you care about stories, graphics, or self-expression? Which platforms do you use — tabletop, computer, console, mobile?

Based on your personality test results, personal preferences, demographics, and some code wizardry, we connect the dots to feed you amazingly personal recommendations for games, friends, news, and events. This means more “hidden gems” and surfacing relevant reviews from gamers similar to you.

  • Finding friends to play games with online and in person

  • Discovering games and “hidden gems” you will love

  • Reading reviews sorted by people like you

  • Learning about yourself through personality tests and gaming habits (Aesthetics of Play, Myers Briggs, and Enneagram).

  • Expressing self and accomplishments with custom avatar builder with art from a user marketplace

  • Figuring out what’s up in gaming with a personalized news feed

  • Commemorating accomplishments and experiences through badges/pics/vids/avatar art

  • Playing in online and local events, tournaments, and leagues

Unbiased Information

Pre-existing giants are not forming all-inclusive portals because they have difficulty innovating and conflicts of interest prevent wholesome unbiased information outside their own games and platforms. To maximize profits they want to sell you more games that have the highest margins, not the games that are right for you. This is why we need a new trustworthy independent company to solve this problem.

“For the leaders in digitally distributed games to remain the leaders in this field there is no way they can let our abilities as consumers to search through their offerings to remain so woefully behind what we expect from other major sites on the web.”

-James Portnow

A Public Benefit Corporation to Help Gamers

GameTree is a Public Benefit Corporation. We are increasing the connectivity between people through the venue of games and play. Unlike most corporations, we cannot get sued for pursuing this mission when it costs profit. This means that from time to time we can take small financial hits to drastically improve your experience on our platform.

We‘re big thinkers with passion and hearts of gold.  We’d rather die than become a cable company or litter our platform with fake and inactive accounts for the sake of increasing engagement. We believe that, ironically, in a purpose driven age, this is exactly what is needed to build the next giant social network— an unbiased benefit company that people can open up to.

“[W]e have not even to risk the adventure alone; for the heroes of all time have gone before us, the labyrinth is fully known; we have only to follow the thread of the hero-path. And where we had thought to find an abomination, we shall find a god; where we had thought to slay another, we shall slay ourselves; where we had thought to travel outward, we shall come to the center of our own existence; where we had thought to be alone, we shall be with all the world.” -Joseph Campbell, 1949
