Welcome to The NEW NEW Slide To Play
That’s a lot of mobile editorial out there. So much so that it seems to create a bit of an echo chamber as multiple sites cover the same games over and over. Sometimes they cover games just because they know it will lead to page views. That’s not bad, but it’s not interesting. We don’t want to add further to that echo, we want to do something different. We want to help people find their next favorite game.
It can be very difficult to find new games to play. We have a plan to fix that.
Our goal is to curate the mobile and connected TV game markets and deliver 1-5 games per day that just plain rock. Only the best of the best, hand picked from the new releases and from the best of the past.
We’ll be rolling out more over time. Currently we just cover iOS and Android phones and tablets. We plan to also cover connected TV devices like the Apple TV and Shield TV.
Have feedback? Let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org. I’d love your input on the new direction and what you think we should be doing.
