Forge has raised $4.5 million in seed funding rounded by Resolute Ventures and True Ventures together with WME Ventures for its platform that enables players to partake short gameplay videos with others.  It only runs for PC and no plans of expansion.

Forge Inc. is a company based in San Francisco and allows PC gamers to share and connect gaming clips with other gamers.  With the financing round led by True Ventures and Resolute Ventures along with WME Ventures, Forge raised an amount of $4.5 million.

According to PE Hub Network, Forge is a non-complicated way where PC gamers connect and share short gaming clips.  Gameplays are recorded instantly and automatically upon launching and runs placidly in the background without additional hardware. In that way, players can clip without any difficulty and share their preferred highlights to the Forge network and other well-known platforms such as Twitter without going out of the game.  Forge is downloadable for Windows PC at no charge at

Hard-core and mid-core PC gamers can use Forge to record videos between 5 to 30 seconds long which can be shared with other gamers.  On the screen's bottom, forge overlay can also be used by gamers to accentuate clips in-game or bookmark them for later sharing, The Wall Street Journal reported.

"Gaming and e-sports are powered by video clips shared online, and that's where Forge really shines," said Jared Kim, CEO and founder of Forge. "With Forge, we make sharing your favorite gaming moments effortless. I'm excited to be working with True, Resolute, and WME Ventures, as well as all of our angel investors and advisors who have all been extremely supportive partners in this journey."

One advantage of Forge is the e-sports, where you share short clips of resolute moments with the necessity of video editing of the entire match. Neither Final Cut Pro nor any other software is required to make the clips since Forge supplies its own tools, as reported by Venture Beat.

With the fund rounded by the three venture capitalists, PC gaming has never been this so much fun where players can highlight and share short game clips of their favorite games with other people.
