by Startacus Admin

A growing phenomenon known as eSports has swept the planet, competitive gaming and online connections through video games have become the norm, and 1 in 3 households in the UK have a games console or PC. The team at WorldWide Gaming intend to form a huge online community for those who participate in this cyber athleticism, and Simen has agreed to talk to Startacus about their new platform.WorldWide Gaming

Hi Simen! First things first, tell us about ‘WorldWide Gaming’

WorldWideGaming is an international multi-gaming community. At the moment we focus mainly on game servers for pc, but will eventually expand to console.
We develop our own custom game servers, and want to host servers in as many different games as possible. The player will then get numerous servers to choose between, and the community will fit every gamer.

Sounds like a big undertaking; What inspired you to start this?

I have been passionate about gaming since I was a kid. Ever since I got my first computer at the age of 14 I have always wanted to start up my own community. Not too long ago I met a few guys willing to help me with just that. Some are real life friends, some are not. We compared professional communities to each other, and figured if we stay even more professional by signing up as a company & getting offices we have an even better chance.

WorldWide GamingDoing what you love commands respect, tell us how far has development of the community come?

We have developed a website, TeamSpeak 3 server, dedicated server & are soon ready to launch our first game server on ArmA 3. 740 users have already registered on the website. We are also on social media. We have as many staff members as we need at the moment. They are all trained to handle all kinds of situations they may come across.


Once we get our first game server up and running we will start saving all the donations in a bank account. The money will be spent on WorldWide Gaming signing up as a firm and offices for the staff members. If there is any money left we will expand the community by starting new projects and advertise more.

Very much the essence of a starting business venture, so the big question; what are your plans and how do you plan to progress with the community?

For the future we are planning to expand the size of the community, so we can give as many players as possible a good offer in many games. We hope to be able to host servers in several different types of games, this to be the players natural choice. To be able to do this, we will as soon as possible found WWG as a firm, and all staff will be working from an office with the headquarters located in Norway. When the community has grown we will expand to console as well.

Some pretty concrete goals there; How do you plan to fund the startup stages of WWG?

We are planning to invest some money into this startup, which we already have,even though crowdfunding/donations will be our main source. It is possible to donate through our website, Indiegogo.com & gofundme.com.

Thanks for the chat Simen!
