Once upon a time, in the old world, the division of "roles" was clear: there were those who created content, and there were those who consumed it. The separation between these two sides has lasted for many years, but in the technological and digital age, it is simply no longer relevant. Our world is constantly changing, evolving and offering new opportunities, no matter where you are across the globe. This is true for each of the areas of life and among them of course, for the content worlds and more specifically - the games.



After all, we all grew up on computer games and video games like this and others, in which we slowly learned what to do until we managed to crack the game. From that moment on, it became somewhat monotonous and did not evolve in parallel to us. Today, however, thanks to the UGC (User-generated content) revolution, the gaming industry is undergoing a real change and every day becomes a new experience, with games that change in real time and countless additions, internal or external, that upgrade game consumption .

Throughout the first four decades of the gaming industry, manufacturing companies were not really open to this idea and kept their distance from users, but over time and as technology gave us more and more home and independent content creation, those companies slowly realized that their line of thinking was simply irrelevant and effective. The barrier they have set, they are losing players instead of gaining them.



The change began with titles like League of Legends, a game created from one of the maps that appeared within another game (Warcraft 3).

The little personal experience began to develop into a much bigger idea and from there, became a completely new, stand-alone game.

Today, millions of gamers from around the world are already contributing daily to this development and doing so with the help of companies such as Overwolf, an Israeli-international platform that offers a variety of options for "third-party developers", those who enjoy a game and then integrate it, upgrade it with their add-ons And can also profit thanks to their extra content.

How it manifests itself?

Through three types of products that Overwolf currently offers:

1) Creating applications for games - In most cases, these are Esports games. If you have played them before, you probably know and know that they require maximum concentration and it is difficult to impossible to be aware of what is happening around you during the game. To do this, Overwolf has a feature that reads and generates game data in real time and with its help, the developers build auxiliary applications for the game, for example those that record the game so that it can be watched in retrospect and analyzed, those that provide advanced statistics and more.



The advantage: All these apps are offered in a free version, where those who pay for a subscription can receive them without advertisements and the creator makes money from them.



2) CurseForge - In 1980 conquered the world a new game - Pacman. In 1982 he got the pledge - Miss Pacman, which was a great success in itself and a mythological status. Miss Pacman was actually a "mod" of the original game, a development that took an existing game, changed something in it and kept the spirit of things combined with that interesting addition.



The mods are one of the biggest pleasures of game developers today and allow global creativity to keep innovating their favorite games over and over again, so that they do not become routine for users.

CurseForge.com is currently the largest website of game mods like Minecraft, World of Warcraft and others and masses enjoy it every day.



Every month, about 20 million gamers use the options offered by Overwolf, while the apps and mods, which together receive 15 billion downloads a year (!), Are currently being developed by about 87,000 creators.

3) CurseForge Core - the latest innovation in the market, which addresses directly to the source - the game makers. Instead of coexisting around the game, which could eventually drive Modi developers elsewhere if they get stuck in a virtual wall that would not allow them to advance in development, Overwolf maintains direct contact with the largest companies in the gaming industry (something very few other companies worldwide can do today). Along with them, an infrastructure is already being built from the game base that allows developers to produce their mods directly within it. Through this infrastructure the actors and creators actually coexist, within the same digital ecosystem and promote each other.



So as you probably understood, the revolution is not before us, but is already taking place in full force and if you are still undecided, this is exactly your moment to join it and be part of one of the largest areas in the world economically and practically today.

Overwolf is a leader in this field, having raised more than $ 75 million from a number of leading investors to date and launched a "creative fund" a few months ago, which supports app creators and game developers who offer a UGC element in their content.



So far, the foundation has invested in a range of games, apps and mods and it continues to grow with the goal of promoting more and more creators who want to be part of an intimate content world, one that "speaks to them" where they can develop ideas that change the gaming world, become part of the canon. player.
