The Wise Platform at the heart of Gamewise has three core features for our users:
Connect - Follow Friends and Share Brainwaves
Gamewise is a social platform that allows users to build connections with their friends and users with similar interests and keep track of what they are doing. The Brainwave system is a flexible publishing platform for the sharing of social content - users can share posts, questions, videos, images, lists and reviews with their followers.
Collect - Create Game Collections and Find New Games
Gamewise helps gamers to find and share games they love. Our recommendation algorithm looks at the user's games and ratings and helps them find other games based on what fellow Gamewise users with similar tastes enjoyed. Users can build custom game collections and share them with their friends.
Collaborate - The Creation of Rich, Long-Lasting Content
Many minds are better than one. Gamewise provides a collaborative publishing platform on which anyone can share their passion and knowledge and in the process satisfy the curiosity of everyone else. The Gamewise contribution community is connected through a desire to create, collaborate, inform and learn. See the Contribution Guide for more info.
