Gamer Network has added database sites Mod DB and Indie DB to its organization.
“As a loyal reader of RockPaperShotgun.com and GamesIndustry.biz, I’ve long admired Gamer Network’s close relationship with gamers and developers”, said Scott Reismanis, founder of Mod DB and Indie DB. “We’ve always worked hard to bridge that gap, and give creators a voice and community they can share their work on. This partnership allows us to focus on that aim, whilst working with a network that understands the needs of developers of all sizes”.
Rupert Loman, CEO of Gamer Network which also owns Eurogamer, added: “We’ve been fans of Mod DB and Indie DB for a long time so we’re delighted to welcome them to the Gamer Network family.
“The PC, indie and modding communities are at the forefront of our industry and as a company we’re committed to supporting their growth – we can’t wait to help develop the websites in partnership with Scott over the coming years”.
Both Mod DB and Indie DB were established on “the premise of user-generated content,” with said content creators the “driving force behind updates.”
