Player X Founder Launches TeePee Games

Former Player X CEO and co-founder Tony Pearce has unveiled his new company, TeePee Games, which aims to solve the problem shared by game-makers and players of being able to find great games. Pearce has secured $500,000 of seed funding for the venture.

TeePee Games is a discovery portal which aims to empower players to find the best games on social networks such as Facebook, mobile game stores such as Google Marketplace, and via the hundreds of thousands of Flash game sites online. Users are provided with a single place online where they locate and store all their games. TeePee Games integrates with Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and MySpace so users can manage all their online experiences in one place.

Joining Pearce on TeePee Games board as chairman is Nick Alexander, former CEO of Sega Europe. Simon Jones, former GameJacket managing director and co-founder of marketing agency, Peppermint P, takes up the role as chief commercial officer and Charles McLeod, managing director of mobile monetisation platform Metaflow joins as a non-executive director.

“The problem is very clear, game players are simply not finding new games because the top 20 dominates each category,” says Pearce. “TeePee Games has built an incredible discovery engine, a cross between Amazon’s recommendation engine and Apple Genius. It learns and grows with the user, building a detailed profile of what the user has played across different gaming platforms, and in turn recommends the ‘best in class’ games content, selected for them personally.”
