a note from us

  • she just finished the greatest work of fiction; however, she couldnโ€™t help but think: โ€œwhat if the plot went another direction insteadโ€ ๐Ÿ“•
  • the author could only write one book, so she settled on her original plot, leaving her wondering where her new ideas could take her
  • this weekโ€™s company gives fiction writers the tools to play out all their ideas ๐Ÿ‘พ

what we like

  • ๐Ÿ”ฅ 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) ๐ŸŽฌ
  • ๐Ÿ“’ no publisher, no problem: today, getting your work out to the masses has never been easier
    • authors can build off each othersโ€™ work and earn constant revenue, all while avoiding the publishing house
  • a new audience: while Dorian targets millions of mobile gamers worldwide, theyโ€™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?
  • ๐Ÿค 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
