On June 8th, popular Twitch Streamer Asmongold hosted the first-ever OTK Games Expo. The OTK Games Expo took place at 2 p.m. EDT and featured over 15 different games in a variety of different gaming categories.
OTK Media is a media organization and influencer network based out of Austin, Texas, focusing on web content creation in the gaming sector. OTK, an acronym for One True King, was formed in October 2020 by content creators and streamers Asmongold, Mizkif, Esfand, Rich Campbell, and Tips Out. The organization has hosted various events, primarily surrounding World of Warcraft, and won Best Content Organization of 2022 at The Streamer Awards. OTK Games Expo was streamed at WePlay Studio live on Twitch.
Everything We Saw at Asmongold’s OTK Games Expo
Asmongold gives 50k in Grants – 30k to RDBK Studios for Renown
One of the best things about the OTK Games Expo was the fact that OTK gave out $50,000 in grants to two small indie gaming developers. Any support smaller gamer developers get adds to gaming innovation and diversity.
Neodash got 2nd place for a $20,000 grant along with a free Razer PC powered by Intel.
OTK gave the $30,000 grant to RDBK Studios for their game, Renown.
We’re really looking forward to seeing how this game develops.
