Rectify Gaming

RECTIFY GAMING HISTORY

THE START

Rectify Gaming launched on December 17th, 2013 and this was the very first logo for the company. The website first started out on Enjin where we had community events and had a forum for people to go to and talk anything gaming.

THINGS ARE GETTING REAL

Come 2015 there was lots of change coming to the company with a brand new logo design made by former Rectify Graphic Designer, Tyler "TwiztedShotzTV" Thomas and bringing in a new set of staff that we've never had before here which led us to our first media event which was New York Comic Con. Later in 2016 we accomplished more by being eligible for E3 as media for the first time as well as PAX. One of the other great accomplishments we reached was raising just over $1,000 for our first ever Extra Life Charity Stream which lasted 24 hours long.

STEPPING UP

At the start of 2014 we immediately updated our logo and kept this one involved for a couple more years. In October of 2014 we introduced the Rectify Gaming Podcast for the first time and this was the last couple of months we moved on from Enjin.

LOOKING AT THE NOW & THE FUTURE

In late 2017 we released our re-branding for Rectify Gaming and announced this brand new design of a website. The brand new generation of Rectify includes not only our media outlet now, but we now have our Esports featured better than ever as well as our Podcast on the Entertainment page. There are a lot more projects in the work for Rectify and we hope you continue to follow our journey.
