Intelli.Game: Where gaming meets critical thought

Intelli.GamePorkbun customer – (United States)

Gaming has evolved from being just a form of entertainment and escapism into a medium that deeply impacts our lives. It’s no longer just about playing games; it’s about discussing and critically analyzing them. This is where Intelli.Game comes into play.

Intelli.Game is the online home of Intelligame, a community of gamers who share a love for games and engage in thoughtful discussions about their societal implications. They explore these conversations across various platforms, including Discord, Twitch streams, YouTube videos, podcasts, and written content on their website. As they highlight on Intelli.Game,

“Gaming changes and morphs all around us. As a form of entertainment, we pour countless hours into virtual worlds contained on screens large and small, boards, and cards. These are windows into spaces where we play heroes, villains, entrepreneurs, homemakers, elves, mercenaries…the list goes on. But where games used to primarily be a form of entertainment and escapism, our play is becoming a deeper part of the stories of our lives.”

The community platform upgraded their domain from to the shorter and more memorable Intelli.Game. This clever domain hack – a domain name that suggests a word, phrase, or name when joining two or more adjacent levels of that domain – makes great use of the .Game domain extension. You can learn more by following the platform on Instagram, X (Twitter), and Facebook, and by visiting Intelli.Game.

Introducing Dreams.Quest: An exploration of imagination

Dreams.QuestNetim customer – (United States)

Dreams.Quest is the online home of Dreams Quest, an entertainment company dedicated to creating diverse content that captures the essence of fantasy and adventure and encourages exploration and learning. Their portfolio encompasses a range of captivating experiences shared through various mediums, including gaming, film, TV, books, and music, all inspired by mythology and lore.

Within the Dreams Quest universe, you’ll encounter elements like portals, distorted time-space, and mystical crystals, all intricately tied to their world’s mythology. One of their notable offerings is “Origins: The Fall of Azoria,” an open-world RPG mobile game featuring quests, exploration, challenges, and concealed secrets. Players collect valuable resources, such as organic matter, crystals, and artifacts, while uncovering hidden knowledge that unlocks forgotten secrets and mastering Weka, the life force energy shaping their world.

“Origins: The Fall of Azoria” provides players with an immersive experience where dreams and subconsciousness converge to create a unique and memorable journey. Dreams Quest’s commitment lies in crafting imaginative content that invites individuals to explore new horizons and engage with their creations.

As shared in a recent update from Dreams Quest, the development team has been hard at work enhancing various aspects of “Origins: The Fall of Azoria.” Notable improvements include the implementation of additional combat mechanics and weapon physics collisions, expanding the quest mechanics, and more. One standout addition is the “dash” ability, granting characters brief immunity to enemy melee attacks when engaged in combat. Players wielding bladed modular staffs can now slash through multiple enemies simultaneously, as long as the attack arc physically “collides” with adversaries, resulting in 100% damage to all affected. These updates reflect the ongoing commitment of Dreams Quest to refine and enrich the gaming experience in their open-world RPG, “Origins: The Fall of Azoria.” You can learn more by following the company on X (Twitter), Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn, and by visiting Dreams.Quest.
