Using Samsung DeX technology to draw in a new crowd

Super Evil Megacorp collaborating with Samsung to bring mouse and keyboard control to mobile MOBA Vainglory

Super Evil Megacorp is working with Samsung to bring mouse and keyboard functionality to its mobile MOBA Vainglory using the Samsung DeX.

The DeX technology allows Samsung Galaxy Note 8, S8, and S8+ users to stream games and apps to their PC screen. Players can then control these apps using the traditional PC setup of keyboard and mouse.

It is an interesting collaboration for Super Evil, which has firmly established Vainglory as "the MOBA perfected for touch" since it launched.

A new crowd

"We're constantly exploring and pushing the boundaries of gaming technology. With the help of our own proprietary E.V.I.L. engine technology, we've been able to deliver a smooth yet visceral competitive gaming experience for Vainglory players across the globe," said Tommy Krul, CTO of Super Evil Megacorp.

"We built Vainglory specifically for mobile devices with unmatched speed and responsive touch controls, but now, with the help of Samsung DeX, we're taking gameplay to the next level for players who gravitate towards traditional PC gaming, and prefer to play with a mouse and keyboard."

Super Evil most recently raised $19 million ahead of its plans to launch a 5v5 mode to Vainglory. This will bring it in line with more traditional MOBAs on PC, as well as Tencent's megahit Honor of Kings.

Looking for word game that requires learning as well as existing knowledge. Anyone out there know of any developer who have tried this?
