Elliot Silver recently highlighted Uniregistry’s promotion of the .Game extension at this week’s E3 conference, so I decided to see what I could find for early adopters of .Game domains. A sample of developed sites is shown below, and the screenshots are linked if you would like to check them out for yourselves.
GoneHome.Game – This site previously resided at GoneHomeGame.com, but the .com is now redirected to the .game. An award winning game launched in 2013, “Gone home is an interactive exploration simulator. Interrogate every detail of a seemingly normal house to discover the story of the people who live there.”
Server.Game – This site is just getting started, but they’re backed by OVH.com, which describes itself as the #3 hosting company in the world, with 17 data centers and 250,000 servers. For their new site, “The purpose of Server.game is to encourage collaboration amongst content creators, developers, game publishers and gaming enthusiasts. The concept is straightforward, by collectively bringing our set of expertise, we’ll be able to level the playing field of the industry : more open, closer to the community and ultimately, more accessible to newcomers.“
GangBeasts.Game – They own GangBeasts.com, but choose to redirect it to the .game. “Gang Beasts is a silly local multiplayer party game with surly gelatinous characters, brutal mêlée fight sequences, and absurdly hazardous environments.“
Jump.Game – A rebrand is in the works, from the not too radio friendly Boondogl.com to Jump.game. “Jump is the world’s first multiplatform digital game subscription service. Jump serves as the central access point for video games across all gaming devices, similar to how Netflix and Spotify provide a central hub across all devices for video and audio content.”
