Edge Gaming has announced it raised $10 million in a funding round led by Playtika.

Existing investors Stardom Ventures and AnD Ventures also contributed to the funding round.

Edge Gaming is a social platform revolving around what it calls “Playables” — custom minigames based on real gameplay shared by users, that everyone can then play from the platform.

“The platform leverages a patent-pending deep tech engine, enabling a seamless ‘select and create’ process to produce ‘Playables’ resembling the flow of making short-form videos on platforms like Tiktok and Instagram,” the press release explained.

The funding will go towards recruitment and further developing the platform, which is currently in closed beta.

Asaf Gazit, Edge Gaming’s co-founder and CEO commented: “With Playables, game developers can focus on perfecting the graphics and physics of their games while players themselves will be empowered to determine how the games are played and interacted with on their own terms.”

Lee Moser, managing partner at AnD Ventures: “The way entertainment is consumed today — smaller content bites, higher frequency, hyper-customization, driven by creators and their communities — is finally being applied into games. Edge Gaming is enabling the future of gaming engagement by allowing players to get far more value from the games they love and the creators they follow.”

Spongebob Squarepants: The Cosmic Shake has a handful of tricky segments throughout its surprisingly lengthy campaign, but it isn’t a game that most would deem to be overwhelmingly challenging. As such, the titular hero’s four underpants – the game’s version of hit points – are usually plenty to get most players through the adventure, especially considering how frequent health refills are across levels. But if you’re looking to add some additional pairs of underoos to your health pool, you won’t want to miss the game’s couple of hidden health upgrades (golden underpants). Read on to find out where to get them.

Phil Spencer says ‘2022 was too light on games’ – PC Gamer

In 2021, Microsoft’s gaming division published games like Forza Horizon 5, Halo Infinite, Age of Empires 4, and Psychonauts 2. It was declared Metacritic’s publisher of the year (opens in new tab) thanks to its games receiving an average metascore of 87.4, helped also to the Xbox Series X port of Microsoft Flight Simulator releasing that year. While in 2022 Microsoft backed some well-received smaller games—Grounded, Pentiment, and As Dusk Falls—its biggest releases, Starfield and Redfall, were delayed into this year.

Xbox stans weren’t happy about this, though I think maybe we could do with less rushed videogame releases and maybe less videogames overall. During a recent inter…….
