Trevor Doerksen of ePlay Digital on how free VR running app Klocked is getting users off the couch

In this InvestorIntel interview with host Tracy Weslosky, ePlay Digital Inc.’s (CSE: EPY) CEO Trevor Doerksen talks about ePlay’s award-winning, augmented reality running app, Klocked. ePlay is a mobile game creator and publisher specializing in sports and entertainment augmented reality (AR) titles.

In the interview, which can also be viewed in full on the InvestorIntel YouTube channel (click here to access InvestorChannel.com), Trevor talks about Klocked, a free, real-time, 3D, audio and video running fitness app. He explains how Klocked uses sports science, 3D visualization, and coaches to help athletes improve performance and enhance their fitness activities and motivate them to a new personal best. Klocked allows users to turn their usual run into an exciting virtual 3D experience in different cities all around the world, connecting Klocked to their treadmill and run as if they were outside. Trevor says with Klocked “you take a step in the real world and your avatar moves through the virtual world.”

Trevor also emphasizes the importance of user feedback to continuous improvement of Klocked. “We’ve gone back to our first batch of 20,000 users and said: ‘What are we getting right?” Trevor tells Tracy. “They’re telling us exactly what we need to do to make it more real for them, to help them improve their performance and to help improve the product.” With the ‘hot runner market’ projected to be worth over $4 billion by 2026, Trevor talks about Klocked’s appeal to “couch to 5K” beginner or returning runners, as well as providing useful real-time peer data to runner mass participation events such as half and full marathons.

Meet You In The Metaverse

I am admittedly new to the Metaverse. However, the opportunities presented by the metaverse as a powerful corporate tool are already clear to see.

Many companies still struggle with creating and maintaining websites. Some companies, particularly in the mining sector, consider websites a necessary evil and cost centre instead of the important IR tool that they are. A website is still the first point of contact for an investor or shareholder in making an investment decision. And while they are prettier than they were in the year 2000, they still contain the same basic elements of text, pictures and links. The metaverse is poised to change all that.

As Morgan Stanley explains, the “metaverse blurs the lines between our physical and digital lives, potentially transforming advertising, e-commerce, entertainment and education.” It is an immersive, interactive experience that creates a virtual environment where visitors can learn, explore, and participate in events and presentations in a whole new way. While the leading users of the metaverse are currently entertainers and gamers (Disney is working on a Metaverse theme park, and Roblox’s Lil Nas X show had a viewership of 33 million), Microsoft, IBM, Facebook, Google and Apple are all investing heavily in the metaverse for a wide variety of applications and users. Brands like Nike, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, and Tommy Hilfiger all have had metaverse-based marketing campaigns, and retailers are making major investments in metaverse ‘real estate’.

It is important to think about the metaverse as a platform or infrastructure for future business and entertainment, and not simply a “place”. Like the web or internet, it is a vehicle for many different activities, the same way that the internet made possible both e-commerce and the sharing of cat videos. As Bloomberg Intelligence Industry Analysts Matthew Kanterman and Nathan Naidu observed, the “metaverse is the next big technology platform, attracting online game makers, social networks and other technology leaders to capture a slice of what we calculate to be a nearly $800 billion market opportunity.” It will get its next big boost as Facebook’s Horizon Worlds mobile phone version launches later in 2022, removing the requirement for VR goggles.

The metaverse will also prove disruptive for traditional investor relations and capital markets. It is already being used for presentations and annual meetings. It is a way to explore an interactive trade show that never closes. While there is a novelty that will surely wear off as it becomes more common, its ability to put people face-to-virtual-face, or transport an investor to an interactive factory floor or mine site, will eventually become as common as a corporate website.

A little more than 20 years ago there was a new gold rush for domains and internet technologies that made some companies and individuals very rich. Some of them were people who simply jumped blindly on the dot-com bandwagon, but others saw the business potential of the new platform. While some failed when the greed far outstripped the reality, it also gave birth to the new economy that underpins almost everything businesses do today. It has become the water in which we swim. Like goldfish, sometimes we are not even aware of the medium that surrounds our daily lives as we reach out to the world and each other with our mobile devices. Companies like Amazon and Facebook got their start while traditional economists and analysts questioned their business models and future profitability.

InvestorIntel already has its own metaverse platform in development, joining this bold new frontier as Investor Meta World, bringing capital market companies to this platform. Stay tuned for our ten client pilot projects and our own World at PDAC. Here’s a sneak peak – https://youtu.be/iXNrKbcUyg8.

At one time the internet was the playground of kids. Twenty five years later, some of those kids are investing the millions (sometimes billions) they made in the next big thing. Many are betting big on the metaverse, or more specifically, individual projects within the metaverse – whether it is e-sports, online casinos, social media, games, entertainment, advertising or PR, or more traditional business.

See you in the metaverse.




Capitalizing on the free-to-play mobile games audience, East Side Games Group ramps up the acquisitions, the awards and rolls out record revenues…

Ask anyone who has children if they play free-to-play mobile games. In about 95% of cases the answer will be ‘yes’. Such is the popularity of mobile games today.

According to Statista, worldwide revenue from mobile games is “is expected to show an annual growth rate (CAGR 2022-2026) of 8.73%, resulting in a projected market volume of US$174,586m by 2026.” And “the average revenue per user (ARPU) in the Mobile Games segment is projected to amount to US$64.66 in 2022.”

Looking at the above statistics, this is an enormous market opportunity for those that can be successful in the mobile gaming segment. Today’s Company is already Canada’s leading free-to-play mobile game group.

East Side Games Group Inc. (TSX: EAGR | OTCQB: EAGRF) not only owns and creates games, they also license their proprietary Game Kit software platform that enables professional game developers to create games.

East Side Games Group has been very busy in 2022 with acquisitions, new games announced (including “Star Trek”), a strong financial performance, and various award nominations

Regarding Star Trek, Wikipedia states: “Star Trek since its original debut in 1966 has been one of the most successful television series in science fiction television history and has been considered by many to have had a large influence in popular culture as a result.” Or put another way, Star Trek is wildly popular and has a cult following.  The announcement also highlighted the magnitude of this deal stating: “The Star Trek franchise has had an unmistakable influence on adults and children alike for over 50 years. Being able to bring such a storied franchise to mobile in our trademark idle-game style is an honor for us here at ESGG,” said Darcy Taylor, Chief Executive Officer of ESGG. “We’re looking forward to sharing this new experience in the Star Trek franchise with everyone from new audiences to Star Trek super fans. This new mobile game is another top tier IP franchise that will only add to an already exciting launch slate in 2022.”

In March, East Side Games Group reported their Q4 earnings results which included record Q4 and FY2021 revenues up 49% YoY and 37% YoY respectively. They also announced record Q4 monthly average users (MAU) of 1.5 million, up 53% YoY.

ePlay Digital is your Gateway into the Metaverse

One of the biggest trends today is mobile gaming, and one of the largest trends of tomorrow is augmented reality (AR) and the metaverse. AR is a real-world environment where the objects that reside in the real world are enhanced. The metaverse is a network of 3D virtual worlds (virtual reality) focused on social connection.

Today’s company is at the leading edge of mobile gaming incorporating AR, VR, and the metaverse.

ePlay Digital Inc. (CSE: EPY) (ePlay) is a sports, eSports, and entertainment mobile games developer and publisher. ePlay is big on Augmented Reality and the metaverse.

Rapidly Growing LEAF Mobile is now East Side Games Group as it expands its partnership with Mighty Kingdom and prepares to list on the LSE

Did you know that LEAF Mobile Inc. is now East Side Games Group Inc. (TSX: EAGR | OTCQB: EAGRF)? The Company is Canada’s leading free-to-play mobile game group. Actually LEAF Mobile Inc. acquired East Side Games Inc. in early 2021 for C$159M, but has clearly decided that rather than keeping the name as a subsidiary it is a better name for the whole company.

The name change was announced in December 2021. CEO Darcy Taylor commented about the name change saying: “We’ve been working on this change for some time, and it represents a change in our trade name; not our purpose, our vision, our structure, or how we operate and it comes at an exciting time in the Company’s growth as we ramp our launch slate of new games and further scale our Game Kit partners.”

East Side Games Group expands the Mighty Kingdom partnership

East Side Games Group recently announced an expansion of its publishing and Game Kit partnership with Mighty Kingdom Games Pty Ltd for the world wide release of three additional free-to-play mobile games on iOS and Android. The games are expected to launch during 2022 and 2023 and will be published by East Side Games. The company’s CEO, Darcy Taylor stated:

“This expanded partnership with Mighty Kingdom is a testament to the quality and performance of our Game Kit technology that allows for a material decrease in the typical build to launch timeline for mobile games developed on the platform. Having Australia’s largest independent game developer join us for an additional three games speaks volumes about our platform.”

As you can imagine, in the mobile games development world, speed to market is important, as is the publisher’s brand name, portfolio of games, and distribution. In the case of East Side Games Group, they rate well in all areas.

East Side Games Group to list on the LSE

Perhaps more exciting for investors is that East Side Games Group will soon be listed on the London Stock Exchange (“LSE”). The Company stated in November 2021: “This secondary London listing is part of LEAF’s growth strategy and brings Canada’s largest free-to-play mobile game group to the LSE. The net proceeds of the capital raising will be used to further scale the business.”

East Side Games Group revenue is forecast to more than double in the next two years

East Side Games Group’s revenue in 2021 is forecast to be C$90M and rise to C$201M in 2023. If achieved, it would be a more than doubling of revenue in just 2 years. This is up enormously on 2020 revenue of C$31M, making East Side Games one of the fastest growing mobile games publishers/developers. Clearly East Side Games Group is very serious in accelerating their growth to capture as much as possible from the booming mobile gaming market.

Facts about Mobile gaming

  • Newzoo – Mobile games are expected to reach 2.6 billion players and generate revenues of USD 90 billion in 2021, representing more than half of the global games market in terms of revenue.
  • Games are also the most dominant category within the mobile applications ecosystem with gaming accounting for more revenue on iOS than every other category combined.
  • Sensor Tower – Games accounted for 66% of all ‌App Store‌ revenue in 2020, approximately USD 47.6 billion was spent on iOS games in 2020, up 25% from 2019.

Closing remarks

Investors may be familiar with the name LEAF Mobile Inc. from some of our past articles here on InvestorIntel. The latest changes are really a new company name, which I think better matches the company’s core business of being a games developer and publisher.

East Side Games Group continues to grow its portfolio of game development studios, publisher partnerships, and mobile games which is now translating into rapidly growing revenues for the Company.

New exposure on the global stage via the LSE listing can only benefit the Company further. Stay tuned in 2022.

Award winning creator and publisher of mobile games puts the ‘e’ on Play

There is an emerging trend of using Augmented Reality (AR) or Virtual Reality (VR) to enhance the user experience, either in gaming or in entertainment. AR is an enhanced experience in the real world whereas VR is a virtual (digital) world experience.

According to Fortune Business Insights, the global Augmented Reality market size was US$ 2.82 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach US$ 65.22 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 48.3%. That’s a very impressive 23x increase over the 8 year forecast period.

Today’s company is an award winning creator and publisher of games (including AR games) that can be used on your mobile phone.

ePlay Digital Inc. (CSE: EPY) (“ePlay”) is a sports, eSports, and AR entertainment mobile games developer and publisher. ePlay has 10+ mobile sports, eSports, and entertainment games already released and several others readying for commercial release. They also have an AR fitness app called Klocked.

Some of ePlay’s game titles include: Howie Go Viral, Outbreak ES, Outbreak Unlimited, Big Swish, SwishAR ES, SwishAR, Big Shot Basketball, Big Shot Swish, Klocked Fitness app and Fan Freak.

Distribution and commercialization of ePlay’s AR mobile games

The key method of distribution used by ePlay is having its games available on the Apple app store and the Android play store. ePlay also has a marketing and distribution deal with one of China’s largest media conglomerates, with an audience of over 100 million viewers.

Partners and investors include comedian, and America’s Got Talent’s, Howie Mandel, social media star and 7-time NBA champ, Robert Horry, and TV host and Sports broadcaster, Lindsay McCormick.

In September ePlay announced the launch of their Klocked Fitness app. By using AR the app makes exercise fun and engaging.

In some recent good news for ePlay, the Company announced that a major update of their Outbreak mobile game featuring Howie Mandel was approved for both the Apple and the Google Stores. Trevor Doerksen, CEO of ePlay Digital, stated: “We are seeking millions of players for the games we created with Howie Mandel and are well on our way with top rated titles like Outbreak.”

ePlay stated in the news release:

“Outbreak is a part of a series of games developed by ePlay and created in partnership with Howie Mandel. Howie’s Games highlights just one of many successful partnerships between ePlay, athletes, celebrities and great brands. Others include Robert Horry, 7-time NBA champion with his mobile game Big Shot Basketball co-created and developed by ePlay. The Klocked partnership was announced earlier this summer with Spartan Racing and more announcements to follow.”

In further good news, ePlay announced on September 30 that Apple has approved ePlay’s Fan Freak app and ePlay wallet. Fan Freak is 3 games-in-one, all of which allow users to earn prizes and points. The three games included in the initial release include Fantasy, Pick-Sheet, and Streak. Games covered by Fan Freak include NHL, NFL, MLB, NBA, and NCAA football.

Closing remarks

ePlay is at a great stage now for investors to consider. This is because the hard work of game development and distribution has been done. Now comes the potential for large revenues if the games achieve popularity and monetization success.

Trading on a market cap of just C$17.75 million leaves ePlay Digital with plenty of potential upside ahead if ePlay’s revenues take off as commercialization of its games progresses in 2021 and beyond.

He said that Leaf’s revenue continues to grow which will be boosted by the launch of their free-to-play mobile game titled, The Office: Somehow We Manage and RuPaul‘s Drag Race Superstar which will serve an underserved LGBTQ-plus market. Darcy also provided an update on Leaf Mobile’s IdleKit technology framework that can de-risk mobile game launches by allowing game developers to develop games faster and with reduced costs.
