Who are we?

About Us

Yurika Corporation began in the late 90's as a small development team working on C and PHP applications. Throughout the 2000s we were focused on building content and community development for some of the largest brands, including Sony, Microsoft, Zenimax, Blizzard Entertainment and more. We consulted on the largest World of Warcraft addon (GearScore), the largest World of Warcraft forum (Elitist Jerks), and developed properties such as SWTORHUB and GW2HUB, both respectively the top guide sites for their games at the time. Moving into the 2020s, we are focused on our own collection of websites, consulting on community development, content management technology along with AI.

Yurika Corporation is the conglomorate of multiple seperate projects and organizations, including Dot Matrix Media, which was incorporated in 2022 to unify projects such as Gaming Tier List and Notabyte, along with our AI systems into one cohesive organization.

We're currently not accepting new clients, but we're always interested in talking content management and technology.

Let's Talk

Our History

Read key highlights and engagements that Yurika Corporation has been involved with.

  1. Dimensions MUD

    A small dedicated team worked on the development of a C based online MUD (Multi-User Dungeon) where users used Telnet to connect and play. A text based game, with a staff of roughly 5 and an average daily user count of 20 during its development and launch.

  2. Ragnarok Online Community Site

    Highly active web forum with over 1,000 concurrent users on the site at peak hours. The site started on phpNuke and a phpBB forum to a custom CMS built ontop of a custom forum solution. The site featured a RPG mod that let you earn 'Zeni' as you posted and then let you buy different sprites for your characters. We developed a fully custom CMS, including theme changing (dark mode, light mode, and much more) in the early 2000s. We worked directly with Gravity Co. on some of the web's earliest social media and influencer campaigns. The founding community of Gaia Online were members on this web forum (and the inspiration for the sprite based mechanics). Note the responsive web design used in 2002.

  3. RPG Shop Mod

    The RPG Shop Mod was made available as open source software, later becoming the foundation for other sites on the net to use a sprite based forum avatar system to increase engagement.

  4. Angry Businessman's Guild Wars Community

    The humerously named 'Angry Businessman's' or 'aB' was a community and guild built around Guild Wars. The community's ranking within the game (#1 for weeks), the featured spotlight and overall attention gave the team at Yurika Corporation the reconginition to later be contracted on multiple future projects.

  5. Contracted with Master Games International - Ten Ton Hammer

    A decade long partnership. We were contracted to develop content, content strategy, SEO strategy and more for TTH's suites of sites, including World of Warcraft, Star Wars: The Old Republic, Guild Wars 2, and more. Our content was viewed by over 5 million monthly unique viewers for most of the decade and we worked with the largest brands to deliver exclusive content, from Sony, Microsoft, Zenimax, Bethseda and many more. The length of the contract shows our dedication to long-term evergreen success.

    SWTORHUB was a community site for Star Wars: The Old Republic. We worked on the site design, migration to the new site, the website's database and content strategy, resulting in SWTORHUB being the leading SWTOR community site during the height of SWTOR's subscription phase.

In 2022 we launched integration with OpenAI's ChatGPT.

    Launched the Game Truth website, quickly growing to over a million pageviews within months of launch. Built around content authority, candid reviews and honest guides.
