💪 The mission
We are redefining the future of gaming by bringing professionally-made games to the browser.
Why is it important?
Billions of people surf the web daily to entertain themselves, reading blogs, watching movies, listening to music and much more. But what they have not been able to do is play high quality games. If you want to play professionally-made games, you either need to download and install game clients on your computer, or reach to your mobile for a more accessible experience.
By enabling professionally-made games to be played in the browser, more people are able to enjoy great games, and game studios can find brand new audiences.
How are we different?
Pley makes gaming easier than watching YouTube by allowing games to be played in the browser. No downloads. No installs. No paywalls. Just play. The time it takes to start playing a game on Pley is less than the time it takes to finish reading this sentence. Don’t believe us? Just visit www.pley.com and enjoy zero-friction gaming.
Our mission is to bring down the barriers to gaming by providing creators with tools that make their games truly accessible, easily discoverable, and virally shareable - with games just one click away from billions of potential players.
