what we like

  • πŸ”₯ a red hot gaming industry: media giants and FAANG are setting their sights on gaming, with the industry expected to add $150b to its value by 2027
    • this will open up more partnership opportunities (late last year, they partnered with Lionsgate) 🎬
  • πŸ“’ no publisher, no problem: today, getting your work out to the masses has never been easier
    • authors can build off each others’ work and earn constant revenue, all while avoiding the publishing house
  • a new audience: while Dorian targets millions of mobile gamers worldwide, they’re bringing authors and fiction fanatics to the gaming industry

potential risks

  • narration saturation: with unlimited stories being created with the same gaming format, will users get bored?
  • 🀝 getting writers on board: it may take some work to convince fiction writers to get into the online gaming industry
  • licensing issues: whether inspired by a Dorian writer or an outside story, new games must abide by copyright laws
    • this has caused complications for companies in the past
