Skrmiish, available on iOS and Android, links with the two most popular battle royale titles to allow fans to challenge their favourite streamers, esports pros, teams and other fans.

For streamers and teams, Skrmiish provides a new way to build communities and monetize their play.

Gamers can compete on their terms and choose their own stakes with the app’s built-in Leaderboard Point (LP) matchmaker system. Gamers can choose to play against their friends, other users, or their favourite streamers in 1v1 Kill Race challenges. Results are automated through the app, minimizing any unnecessary qualms between players.

Skrmiish community manager and PUBG streamer Chris van Ysendyk, AKA DaDexo said: “Dealing with a community requires a lot of administration and is resource intensive. Skrmiish alleviates all these needs of someone running a community by acting as an automated bridge between you and your community. A plug and play connection.

“People want a place to play and a community to be a part of, and Skrmiish can automate the process of that by making it a repetitive competitive experience of onboarding people to your community. For me, the entire gaming process begins and ends with Skrmiish.”

Skrmiish, founded by Chris Heaton (CEO) and Roland Reed (CPO), was born out of a passion for competitive gaming, but also a desire to further explore community and creativity, humanity and limitless possibilities. Its mission: to elevate the gaming experience, making playing your favourite games even better.

Mr Heaton said:  “Creating Skrmiish required building innovative technology from scratch. This has been an incredible two-year journey with an exceptional and dedicated team of people”.

“We are excited to unleash Skrmiish to the world, elevating the core gameplay experience that players love, alongside the streamers they so passionately follow. Our aim with this platform is that inviting people to ‘Skrmiish’ becomes a common part of the gaming community’s vocabulary.”

Reed said: “With the rise in the popularity of streamers and the resulting cross-over into the mainstream, we identified a real need for better management and matchmaking systems in order to increase engagement with streamers and the communities they represent.

“Everyone who works in the video games industry understands what a unique medium it is, with endless variety. There is a game, community and streamer for everyone out there.”

Experience a new way to play and visit www.skrmiish.com to download the desktop client. Once your registration is complete, download the BETA version of the app free on iOS devices via the App Store and for Android devices via the Google Play Store and sync your account. It’s now time for your first Skrmiish.
