SKYLLZONE LLC recently launched the new game Fan vs Machine, a free to play fantasy sports game. The team seeks to create a destination where fantasy users can participate in different games, getting instant gratification on the various leagues they join, whether against other users or against computer teams. No longer do fantasy sports users have to play only against their friends and co-workers in private leagues, or go out and collect money if they win a particular league. No longer does an injury to a first round pick ruin the whole fantasy season. No longer are drafts unavailable after the season starts. SKYLLZONE has solved all of these and other shortcomings with Fan vs Machine. With a team heavily experienced in fantasy sports, web development, online marketing, and web analytics, all of the pieces are in place to take over the world of fantasy sports. And, with a Series A funding round behind them, the team is focused on continuing to drive the fantasy sports world in new, more user-friendly, directions.
