Gamers will now get their video game addiction under control as GameAddict, the web service that uses an online schedule to block games, is now available in Beta.
Bratislava, Slovakia -- (ReleaseWire) -- 06/27/2017 -- BytePioneers, the company behind the relationship app Couple Tracker, is highly delighted to announce the launch of GameAddict.me; an online application assists gamers in controlling their bad gaming habits by enabling them to set up personalized gaming schedule and password combinations that control their access to the games.
GameAddict offers a simpler solution: it lets the gamer set up their own gaming schedule and then hides their game passwords during blocked periods. The passwords become visible again to the gamer during open periods. Gamers can choose from various preset schedules, such as "After school", "After 6PM" or "Weekends only". The gamer's progress in playing less is trackable in the GameAddict dashboard. The service is currently available for League of Legends, Battle.net and will soon be expanding to Steam.
The team at BytePioneers believes GameAddict will be a game changer in fighting video game addiction. "Video game addiction is a serious problem, which can destroy relationships. Our mission is to give gamers the tools and support they need to curb excessive gaming and find the right balance between gaming and real life." Says Peter Nemeckay, CEO and co-founder of BytePioneers. Once an active night-time gamer himself, Peter was not able to control and cut down his League of Legends gaming time. The decision to play less or take a break never worked for more than a few days, it seemed impossible to harness enough discipline. He found the only way to reduce gaming was to give his game password to his brother and tell him: "Don't give me the password for the next 5 days!". This solution worked perfectly and it inspired him to create the GameAddict.
The launch of the public Beta is planned for 28th June, 2017. The first phase will cover Beta launches in the United States, United Kingdom, Korea, Australia, Canada, Slovakia and Czechia. Gamers in these countries can sign up at GameAddict.me for a free. Free plan includes 10-day/month blocking schedule. Upgrading to a broader plan can be done anytime. Parents, girlfriends and other family members will be more than happy to pitch in.
BytePioneer's portfolio includes Android apps such as Couple Tracker, which currently has over 4 million downloads. The launch of GameAddict in 2017 is the company's first step towards tailoring to the growing needs of the online gaming market.
