Game Genome Project aims to change Android game discovery
Wouldn’t it be nice if you could plug in your own gaming preferences into a system and have it spit out recommendations that actually deliver the right results? The just-debuted Game Genome Project hopes to do exactly that when it launches in October.
The premise is simple – filter results based on what you are looking for. Want a game that includes swiping gestures, zombies, and turn-based play? Ta-da. How about a sci-fi shooter that lets you do some button mashing? Here ya go! With hundreds of traits and potentially millions of combinations, the Game Genome Project should deliver exactly what you need.
Look for the Game Genome Project to launch on Best Apps Market (BAM) which has already amassed 4.5 million installs and a 4.5+ star rating over the course of its first 15 months. In the meanwhile, head over to the Game Genome site to try out a few filters for yourself.
The Game Genome Project Exclusively Launching at TechCrunch Disrupt SF
Sept 10, 2012: At TechCrunch Disrupt SF, the Game Genome Project will showcase a new trait-based mobile game discovery tool.
Instead of wasting time looking for games based on generic keywords or stale top lists, you can now search using a combination of traits such as “3D Graphics + Play By Tilting + Fast Game Play + Sci-Fi Theme”. The results reveal a variety of games that are more tailored to what you actually want. With hundreds of traits and millions of combinations, the Game Genome Project makes game discovery faster and more personalized than any other method, including the Google Play Store.
The Game Genome Project launches this October on Best Apps Market (BAM) – one of the most respected and fastest-growing app recommendation tools on Android. In just 15 months, the app has reached 4.5 million installs and a 4.51 Star rating from more than 35,000 users. This, paired with the staggering growth of the Android market, makes BAM the perfect platform to showcase the power of the Game Genome Project.
Check us out at Tech Crunch Disrupt SF in Startup Alley on September 10th for an exclusive one-day look at the Game Genome Project. You can visit http://www.GameGenomeProject.com to play with our “Blender” and get a glimpse of this powerful new technology in action.
