One of the largest portals dedicated to freelancers opens a Gaming section: in addition to tutors, there are also designers, programmers, and musicians. The growing popularity of the video game world has led to a decided expansion also by portals offering freelance services, which are increasingly devoting themselves to gaming by offering support for the development of independent games.
In past years, in fact, sites like Elance, Upwork and Freelancer include some job ads dedicated to the world of video games. For some days, however, the famous Fiverr portal has decided to go further, introducing a new Gaming section that even includes ... video game lessons dedicated to the most important titles: Fortnite, PUBG, League of Legends and Minecraft.
How does it work? Being a portal dedicated to freelancers, browsing the Gaming section and the window dedicated to Game Coaching, it is possible to go in search of a tutor based on one's needs and degree of experience.
Each user offers certain skills and a "curriculum" that can be consulted by the consumer, who can also view the tutor's feedback, the number of lessons he or she currently has and so on. Prices? They range from around 5 euros for a lesson of half an hour to hundreds of euros for training with professional players, with different packages depending on your needs.
In fact, you can choose the platform (PC or console), the desired language, the type of experience you are looking for (from novice to expert) and the level of the tutor.
A service that is growing more and more, attracting tutors (and consequently players) from other particularly popular games like Apex Legends, Counter-Strike, Destiny 2, DOTA 2, Overwatch, Rainbow Six Siege, and Rocket League.
The service, as we said, goes far beyond the simple Game Coaching: among the various categories currently present on Fiverr, you will also find programmers who can help you give life to your idea (with prices ranging from a few hundred to several thousand euros), game designers, 3D modelers, animators, graphic designers in the user interface, sound designers, composers, and even voice actors . In short, everything you need to design a video game.
The world of video games continues to grow without stopping, and in this sense, the next technologies such as the streaming of Google Stadia and Project xCloud will help make this sector even more popular and accessible.
The expansion of Fiverr, which retains a percentage of each successful job from its success, confirms the great interest in one of the most profitable digital entertainment markets, which has already amply demonstrated that it can compete (and in some cases, even exceed ) giants like cinema and music without fear.
