However Discord has spent the last year moving away from being an exclusively video game-focused platform, leaving a market space for Guilded to fill.
Guilded’s platform is built on a similar server structure to Discord, where users can create dedicated groups within their servers, communicate in threads, and jump into voice chat rooms for group play sessions. It also created features specifically useful for users who organize online player communities such as calendar scheduling, tiered voice chat, and most recently, a simple bot API that lets users create bots that can respond to text prompts in chat.
Unlike last week’s acquisition of Jim Greer’s Bash Video company, Roblox Corporation will not be sunsetting the Guilded platform. It’s stated that the company will continue to operate as an “independent product group.”
