Gamewise celebrates public launch after successful closed beta.

Birmingham, UK - January 17th, 2012 – Following a hugely successful closed beta, is now open to new users.

Gamewise is a brand new website enabling gamers to follow their favourite games, discover new ones and share their gaming knowledge with their peers. The site is formed entirely from user-generated content.

At the core is the Wise Platform, a community-edited database with an easy-to-use visual editor that allows users to quickly author beautiful, high quality content - earning themselves points and kudos. 

Surrounding this is a social platform called Brainwaves. Users can share Thoughts, Articles, Reviews and Discussions, which are rated and commented on by others.

"We have had a terrific response to our closed beta," says Dean Walton, co-founder of Gamewise. "Our community has created thousands upon thousands of database pages and the Brainwaves system has inspired some fascinating discussions. It's hugely exciting to be creating a new online experience and we can't wait for more people to join the site and see it in action."

The emphasis on collaboration means that the rapidly growing Gamewise community and discovery tools will become whatever gamers make of them. The site also creates new opportunities for video game publishers to tap into the culture and enthusiasm of their fans - more on that soon.

Gamewise now has:

  • More than 45,000 user-created game pages
  • More than 127,000 content pages (characters, companies, people, franchises and platforms).
  • More than 50,000 published Facebook Open Graph actions from users.
