Fans in the South-East Asia and those in Australia have something to look forward. Two companies have announced their big plans about creating eSports reality shows. It will certainly entertain everyone who enjoys eSports industry. And the number of those people has been increasing ever since the first eSport game has been introduced. Those who are living in Australia and South-East Asia are a lucky one since upcoming eSports reality shows are knocking on their doors.
The Game of Fame
One of the projects is Game to Fame. The project is conceived as a movie franchise and multi-season series which mainly will focus on FIFA. After the initial release, the project will host Big-Brother style competition for major eSports games Counter-Strike Global, Dota 2 and League of Legends. Those who are fans of these games, and there are many of them, will enjoy watching contestants as they measure strength in these most popular games. The project is founded by Spout Entertainment Group which is based in Singapore and Asian media investor Aurora Media Holdings.
Spout Entertainment Group is the fastest booming eSports company in the SEA area. Their agenda is to make eSports a sustainable ecosystem by pursuing profitability and by solving industry pain points. The Spout is a new company and it offers a great potential when it comes to the E-entertainment. The company closed a $2.1 million seed in April so its capital raised quickly from venture company Reapra. Spout’s CEO and co-founder, charming Daryl Teo kindly answered questions that have come from many people wondering how they plan to execute this ambitious project.
Daryl Teo is confident that his project and movie franchise will quickly leverage upon company’s great number of visitors from all over the world. Their loyal visitors in fact number around 30 million across various media subsidiaries which may come as a surprise since the company founded recently. Daryl also stated that they are looking to further expand their reach together with Aurora’s regional distribution networks. Aurora has strong traditional cable channels as well as movie cinemas, so Daryl is confident that the upcoming project will be a huge success.
The Next Games
The second project that is coming shortly is The Next Games. The project is based on League of Legends, so it has many fans even before the release. The show will award $10,000 to every contestant. Every contestant will have to sign a six-month contract with Australian LoL team. You may wonder which team that is, but there are no any official reports on that. So it stays an unnamed LOL team based in Australia.
The format of the project further will whittle down ten finalists into a single team which will eventually face off a team from the Oceanic Pro League. Well, most certainly this will be an epic battle which we shouldn’t miss. The Next Gamer will only be broadcasted via YouTube, so everybody can watch it regardless of their location. Other information about the production company or about the overall project are not available at the moment. We only know that the production company had partnered with Click Management which is a well-known Australian agency.
