When we started OPG in 2014, Twitch felt like the Wild West. At the time, the entire space was an exciting new frontier, seriously lacking in terms of rules, regulations, and standards. Four years later, we’re proud to say that we’ve done our part to help make the industry a better-understood and safer place to do business and today, we take a next exciting step into another new frontier. Actually, two.
In 2014, the world of video game streaming truly only had a single major player in it. In 2018, this is simply no longer true, with other platforms now presenting viable alternatives to the status quo. As of today, OPG begins representing influencers who work on Facebook Gaming and Mixer, starting with our inaugural client on each platform: Darkness429 and Siefe.
As the industry evolves and grows, we expect to see online performers succeed on many platforms – even platforms that don’t yet exist. As OPG moves into multi-platform management, we will build tools, develop analytics, solve problems and innovate in ways that will benefit broadcasters no matter which platform – or platforms – they call home.
We are truly excited to begin this journey together – and are honored that the top broadcasters on Facebook Gaming and Mixer have chosen to hire us for management services. I hope you’ll enjoy their streams as much as we do!
Darkness429, also known as “Timmeh”, began his streaming career in 2014 when he started streaming the Titanfall beta. His channel began to grow at a rapid pace as he branched out to other shooters such as Doom, Rainbow 6 Siege, Division and Destiny. He became well known as one of the top streamers for competitive first-person shooters.
In early 2018, Darkness429 made a leap, switching from Twitch to the brand-new Facebook Gaming initiative, where he stood out as a highly interactive streamer with outstanding production quality. Today, Darkness429 leads Facebook Gaming’s streaming platform as one of their largest and most loved creators.
A veteran of the gaming industry, Siefe has decisively cemented himself as one of the premier broadcasters on Microsoft’s streaming platform, Mixer. While he may be instantly recognizable today for his high-level gameplay on-stream, Siefe’s history as a member of the gaming community dates back to his time working as a consultant on various esports titles.
Since obtaining his partnership in early 2017, Siefe has racked up numerous firsts on the growing platform including first user to one million views and first user to a quarter-million followers. With no signs of slowing down anytime soon, Siefe looks to lead by example as a pioneer on Mixer.
OPG will be providing business development, negotiation, and day-to-day management services so that both Darkness429 and Siefe can continue to focus on providing high-quality, live streaming entertainment to their fans.
