A few weeks ago now, a company called Boss Level Labs contacted Eurogamer, claiming to have created the world’s first brain booster supplement for gamers. They called it GodMode. Now I felt that claim was a little generous, given I’d heard of an esports team in the States that were sponsored by a similar kind of product, but a couple of things really caught my eye in this email.
First of all, it quoted one of the best chess players of all time, Judit Polgár, a retired grandmaster, who’d said: “I take GodMode to think better and reach victory.” On top of that, the CEO of Boss Level Labs is the very same Scott Miller who once co-founded Apogee Software, later known as 3D Realms, the creators of Duke Nukem.
Speaking of the Duke, his voice actor even voices the main advertisement for this product.
