SANTA MONICA, Calif., Aug. 21, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Super League Gaming (Nasdaq: SLGG), a global leader in competitive video gaming and esports entertainment for everyday players around the world, and the Singleton Foundation for Financial Literacy and Entrepreneurship, whose mission is to inspire entrepreneurship and make financial competence as commonplace as reading, announced today an exclusive recreational esports partnership for the launch of the nonprofit’s upcoming new game Venture Valley.
Working with premiere game developer Hitpoint Studios, the Singleton Foundation produced this innovative new game, Venture Valley which gives players the chance to be the CEO of their in-game careers. With esports-style competitive play, gamers create new start-up companies — everything from a simple dog-walking business to futuristic drone factories. Up to six players compete against each other with the goal of building the most successful business empire in the Valley, all while developing important life skills along the way.
“Venture Valley is ingenious, fun, and will surprise you,” says Andy Babb, Chief Games Officer of Super League Gaming. “The Singleton Foundation and Hitpoint Studios have produced a AAA sim game that’s truly innovative within the genre by including elements to support competitive play. With fast-paced action that is addictive for players and viewers, Venture Valley is pioneering a new type of esport.”
As the exclusive esports launch partner for Venture Valley, Super League will be developing multiple initiatives across its proprietary properties and within its social and digital distribution channels. Included within the program will be weekly online competitions enabling players to compete for everything from bragging rights to exciting prizes, with top players being celebrated within the Super League and emerging Venture Valley communities. Super League also will produce a collegiate Venture Valley championship tournament, complete with a live esports broadcast of the finals, leveraging Super League’s patented gameplay visualization technology.
“Super League is the perfect platform and partner for the launch of Venture Valley esports,” says Shelley Miles, CEO of the Singleton Foundation. “The game is all about being an entrepreneur and we are thrilled to have a partner who is able to generate awareness, drive downloads, and help build our foundational community through the right mix of competition and content. Super League delivers on all fronts.”
