Ric Neil will oversee partnerships, platform, and product development for Streamline Studios USA

Today, Streamline, a global video game and Metaverse development studio, announced that Ric Neil has joined the company as the Managing Director of Streamline Studios USA . Neil brings his 30-year successful and varied career in video game development with experience at Unity, Amazon, EA, Konami, Glu, Microsoft, and more to the Streamline roster of global production studios.

"Attracting industry veterans like Ric Neil underscores our continued commitment to international video game and Metaverse development," says Alexander Fernandez , CEO of Streamline. "With studios opening around the world, Streamline can offer more career opportunities and more support for our clients in every time zone. Ric's appointment strengthens our presence in The Americas and elevates our partnerships in the entertainment, technology, and enterprise space."

As Metaverse investments are forecasted to accelerate this year , so will the demand for video game technology expertise. Non-gaming industries continue to leverage gaming communities, creativity, and connectivity to increase brand loyalty and engagement . However, with many corporations and studios downsizing their teams , outsourcing creative and technical services will become a precedent to meet production deadlines. Streamline is fortifying its leadership team to meet these growing demands.

"This is a big deal," says Ric Neil , Managing Director of Streamline Studios USA . "While the industry continues an unsustainable cycle of ramping up and down to suit production needs, at an independent studio like Streamline, I can use my 30-year experience in building professional teams to nurture a wave of new talent and guide them to discover great games and experiences."

With a portfolio of world-famous IPs like Madden NFL, Silent Hill, and The Grand Tour behind him, Neil will lead Streamline's new US development studio in product and talent development. Neil is actively hiring in the USA in art, engineering, and design disciplines. To learn more about opportunities at the US studio, visit Streamline's Careers Site .

This announcement follows new leadership hires in Streamline Studios Malaysia , Gabriel Pessah , the former Head of Strategy and Development at PlayStation Studios, and the opening of the new office in Japan led by SIE Japan and Asia veteran Kenji Kajiwara .

Blockchain Game Guild YGG Japan Agrees with KryptoGO and IVC to Develop and Offer Wallets Specializing in Web3 Games

Blockchain game guild "YGG Japan", which has an exclusive partnership with ForN Co., Ltd. (ForN, Minato-ku, Tokyo,CEO Tetsuya Fujiwara), announced today that KryptoGO Co., Ltd (KryptoGO) and Infinity Ventures Crypto (IVC) to jointly develop a wallet dedicated to GameFi users.

YGG , KryptoGO and IVC

Users wishing to enjoy blockchain games today have to download, install, and configure browser extensions and mobile wallets (Non-Custodial wallets) on their smartphones to prepare tokens and coins to be used in games. Many of these existing wallets are generic products designed for use with DeFi and Decentralized Exchange (DEX), and there are no wallets specific to blockchain games and for blockchain game users. The barriers to getting started with blockchain gaming are high, therefore, BCG are not accessible to everyone.

YGGJ, which aims to create a world where games are part of everyday life through "Play and Earn", believes that in order for more users to experience the fun of blockchain games, it is imperative to lower the barriers to starting a game as much as and as easy as possible. Under this mission, it is quite logical conclusion to form a join venture among YGGJ, a regional subDAO of the world's largest blockchain game guild YGG, KryptoGO, a multi-chain, non-custodial wallet developer, and IVC investing pioneering startups in GameFi, DeFi and Web3, to address this challenge and bring the BCG to the next level.

2022 Tokyo Game Show

Comment from Tetsuya Fujiwara , YGG Japan

Currently, only highly literate users are accessible to and enjoy blockchain games and web3 world in Japan . YGG Japan's mission is to spread blockchain games and the new era of gaming culture, and to bring this new experience to as many users as possible. We are looking forward to collaborating with KryptoGO and IVC who share our philosophy, and we are very happy to have partners who can accomplish this mission together.

Comment from Kordan Ou, CEO of KryptoGO Co., Ltd.

In the collaboration with YGGJ and IVC, KryptoGO's role is to optimize the experience of managing on-chain game assets. In GameFi, many game producers are inclined to develop their own blockchain, which raises the bar for gamers entering the space. KryptoGO and their propriety wallet and account model solves this by placing great emphases on "asset management for multiple chains" and "usability and user-friendliness." Users can manage all their virtual assets with just a phone number, making the transition from Web2 to Web3 gaming much easier. Regardless of which blockchain a game runs on, all game assets with be accessible and highly secure in KryptoGO Wallet, making it the best choice as a cross-game inventory!

Comment from Akio Tanaka , Infinity Ventures Crypto

Through our experience in launching and investing in social games in the Japanese market, we see great potential for the explosion of blockchain games in Japan , and we are very pleased to participate with KryptoGO in the development and delivery of the wallet, an important first step in YGGJ's mission to bring a new era of gaming culture and user experience to Japan .
