Fortnite Creator ‘Typical Gamer’ Launches UEFN Studio Jogo Games

Over the past year, renowned Fortnite creator Andre “Typical Gamer” Rebelo has been quietly working towards a unique gaming milestone. Instead of focusing solely on battle royale achievements or content creation, Rebelo has set his sights on Unreal Editor for Fortnite (UEFN). Alongside his massive following of nearly 24 million fans and 105 million monthly views, Rebelo and his team of 20 developers have secured the sixth spot among the most popular UEFN creators.

Exiting stealth mode, Typical Gamer is ready to introduce his new UEFN studio, Jogo Games, with Rebelo at the helm as CEO. The studio’s name, derived from the Portuguese word for play, symbolizes Rebelo’s roots.

Leadership at Jogo Games

The core team at Jogo Games, consisting of Rebelo, COO Chad Mustard, and CTO Mark Price, shares a history rooted in Fortnite. Their collective experience in content creation and game development forms a solid foundation for their ambitious vision.

Mustard, a content creator boasting over 900,000 subscribers, specializes in Fortnite Creative and also happens to be the brother of former Epic Games Chief Creative Officer Donald Mustard. Price, with a background in the gaming industry dating back to 2009, brings a wealth of experience to the team, having previously worked at Activision and in developer coaching. Rebelo himself began modding games at a young age and has since evolved into a prominent figure in the gaming community.

Setting the Stage for Jogo Games

Jogo Games aims to usher in a new era of Fortnite games beyond the traditional combat-focused maps. With a significant financial investment of $2 million in recruiting top-tier talent, Rebelo is determined to expand the horizons of UEFN and introduce new genres to the platform.

Rebelo envisions Jogo Games as the “Pixar of UGC,” emphasizing the creation of intellectual properties that transcend the confines of Fortnite. With seven UEFN maps already under their belt, the team’s ultimate goal is to establish a presence across various user-generated content (UGC) platforms.

Embracing UEFN’s Potential

The agility and versatility of UEFN have enabled Jogo Games to swiftly develop and publish games like “Fortnut” and “Toy Bed Wars” within a span of two months. Currently, the studio boasts seven titles catering to an average of 20,000 daily players, showcasing the platform’s expansive reach and engagement.

Jogo Games’ focus on iteration and post-launch refinement reflects their commitment to meeting the evolving preferences of the Fortnite community. By adapting quickly and responding to player feedback, the studio continues to enhance its offerings and maintain a competitive edge.

Pioneering Talent Development in UEFN

As Jogo Games expands its roster to 35-40 developers, the studio remains dedicated to nurturing talent within the UEFN ecosystem. Price’s efforts to onboard new talent underscore the platform’s untapped potential, with UEFN serving as a playground for creators to unleash their creativity.

Through strategic hiring and a relentless pursuit of innovation, Jogo Games is poised to lead the charge in redefining the UEFN landscape. As Epic Games continues to enhance UEFN’s capabilities and tools, the studio remains confident in its ability to thrive in this rapidly evolving ecosystem.

Forging Ahead in the UGC Space

With a firm belief in the future of UGC content, Typical Gamer, Jogo Games, and their leadership are prepared to capitalize on the burgeoning opportunities within the UEFN platform. As Epic Games expands its offerings and investments, the stage is set for creators like Rebelo to make a significant impact in the gaming industry.

Looking ahead, Jogo Games is committed to establishing its own UGC-native gaming IP, leveraging the power of UEFN to create immersive experiences that resonate with players worldwide. As the competition intensifies and innovation flourishes, Jogo Games remains at the forefront of shaping the future of UGC gaming.
