Plus Five Gamifies Personal Hygiene With New Deodorant Line
Plus Five launches the ultimate deodorant for gamers on Kickstarter.


Salt Lake City, UT: New Startup, Plus Five, announced today that it has launched the ultimate deodorant for gamers.  Since launch, gamers have already started leaving the basement and are taking to the streets and parks.  See how Plus Five changed the lives of these two gamers in Smellimon Go.  To complete the first production run of Plus Five Charisma and to help thousands of other gamers, Plus Five is raising $25,000 on Kickstarter. No matter what guild, faction or clan you belong to this new community needs support.

Like traditional athletes, eSport athletes are constantly putting themselves in stressful situations. Players find themselves moments away from earning an Epic Win and constantly shifting between extreme emotional highs and lows.  We built Plus Five to aid in making these moments better. Each product represents a personal enchantment; Plus Five Charisma, Wisdom, Dexterity and Vitality, through which players can increase their own personal stats.

Stereotypically, gamers are basement dwelling, Monster drinking young men eating Cheetos who live with their moms.  On the contrary, gamers have come together to form a community that supports other gamers. More than 22 million gamers watch the most elite gamers play for prize money in the millions, eSports.  Games are expected to become a $90B market and viewers of eSports has surpassed the viewership of hockey in the US. We are excited about our launch and can’t wait to be part of this amazing community.

Tim Cooley, founder of Plus Five, is an avid member of the game development community.  He has launched a board game, GEARS, and several mobile games, including Step Pets and DJ Wizard.  He is also actively involved in the Salt Lake board development scene and teaches “Intro To Game Development” at a local university.
