We deliver exceptional player experiences and drive growth for gaming studios.

The PIF Nation Journey

Born from a love for tech and gaming, we started with a dream: to redefine player support in Southeast Asia. From our early days crafting gaming platforms to evolving into a powerhouse B2B company, our journey showcases our adaptability and forward-thinking spirit.

The Humble Beginnings: Railings University 

In 2021, during the peak of Play-to-Earn (P2E) brought about by the popularity of Axie Infinity, we embarked on our journey. Starting as a blockchain gaming guild named Railings University, we quickly became a beacon for gamers. Within a year, we got over 5,000 P2E scholars, and our community grew to an impressive 20,000+ members.

Expanding Horizons: Partnerships and Investments

Our growth was not just in numbers but in vision. As our guild expanded, so did our aspirations. We forged partnerships and invested in over 30 web3 games, all with a singular mission – to make play more rewarding. These games opened doors for our community, offering them P2E opportunities.

A New Chapter: The Quest Platform 

2022 was a landmark year for us. We were fueled to innovate with the successful completion of a
US$6 million private round
. By mid-year, we introduced the gaming world to the Quest platform, now known as railings.io. More than just a platform, it became a hub for gamers, an online job board where they could embark on Quests and earn rewards ranging from cash, NFTs, merchandise, and mobile loads. This innovation skyrocketed our community to a staggering 100,000 members.

Evolving with the Times: Embracing B2B 

Come 2023, with a rich history and a vast community behind us, we pivoted. Recognizing the potential of the Southeast Asian gaming market, we transformed into a game marketing agency. Our goal? To be the bridge for game studios and developers, helping them navigate and establish themselves in this vibrant market.
