With everyone being in quarantine mobile gaming has seen a spike in activity.
And that has meant boom times for Bunch, a Discord-like video chat app for multiplayer mobile games. Its number of monthly active users has grown 50 times over since March, reaching north of a million. “I look at gamer behavior, and there are the hardcore gamers, who really care about the game,” explains Bunch cofounder Selcuk Atli. “And there is another category we call ‘social gamers,’ people who look at gaming as way to spend quality time with their friends. And I think that’s who we’re really seeing.”
