PHILADELPHIA, PA / ACCESSWIRE / May 24, 2022 / Dynasty 11 Studios, a diverse Philadelphia-based video game and app development company founded by CEO and Creative Director Colin Johnson, has announced plans to release a new social networking and team-building app for gamers. This announcement comes as gaming continues to grow in popularity, with the total number of gamers in the world expected to surpass 3 billion by 2022. As more and more people become gamers, they are searching for ways to connect with like-minded individuals that they can explore their new gaming passion with. Dynasty 11's app, which will be called Player 2, aims to bring gamers together and form strong and lasting bonds between players.
Dynasty 11: A New Name in Gaming
As a massive, highly lucrative, and still fairly young industry, opportunities are abundant for innovative, progressive-minded companies. Comprised of an enthusiastic team of ambitious and highly collaborative professionals, Dynasty 11 endeavors to make the gaming industry more inclusive and opportunistic through its social networking and team-building app, Player 2.
The Player 2 app was designed to address gaming's most notorious issue - toxicity. The team is facing head-on the insidious "boys club" and crunch-time culture that plagues game developers by cultivating an inclusive and life-balanced workplace culture. Creatively, Dynasty 11 Studios functions as a think tank, where ideas are built upon and refined until they reach their optimal form. These foundational elements position Dynasty 11 Studios to be an industry-disrupting vehicle of innovation, transparency, and creative excellence.
Like every business, Dynasty 11 has faced challenges that come with growing a business and developing a first-generation product. However, with the effusively positive Colin Johnson at the helm, the team sees every challenge as an opportunity to find a unique solution.
Enter Player 2
Player 2 is a social networking and team-building platform for gamers. Whether a gamer needs teammates to complete an immediate activity, wants to make new friends to game with, or would like to join or start a gaming community, "the Gamer's Companion App" is designed to support a gamer's many needs. The lead feature of Player 2 is its Compatibility Matchmaking. After filling out a Playstyle Survey, users swipe left or right at potential teammate matches generated by a matchmaking algorithm. Another key feature of Player 2 is Playgrounds, an expanded chatroom/forum hybrid section that provides unparalleled support for gaming communities, developers, streamers, and media outlets. Player 2 also offers additional functions, including a "Looking for Group" section that allows users to find teammates for immediate activities, Messaging to facilitate easy and secure communication with Player 2 friends, and finally Game Hub, the scrolling focal point of all a player's favorite gaming content.
Partnering with Drexel University to Put Philadelphia on the Game and App Dev Map
Following the year's successful development of Player 2 alongside Dynasty 11 partner Drexel University, the project culminated in the permanent hiring of three Drexel University students to the team and the anticipated release of Player 2 in the second half of 2022. Player 2 is now in Alpha Testing on the App Store and Google Play.
Dynasty 11's partnership with Drexel will continue to grow over the next school year, with the company sponsoring several Drexel student teams. This is just a part of Dynasty 11's commitment to building its business in Philadelphia; the company embodies the characteristics that make Philly business unique and hopes to help put Philly on the map as a growing hub of Video Game/App Development.
