Thunderstruck is the first video game analytics platform to use AI-powered behavioral analytics. It uses artificial intelligence based on Bayesian inference to understand information about actual in-game events taken directly from the game’s servers.
Thunderstruck analyzes player motivations and playing preferences, rewarding preferences to give creators real-time information on their game’s target audience, player demographics with the highest retention rates, and the types of players who invest the most time in the game. So far, game developers have been forced to use outdated player rating models along with market research and fill knowledge gaps with guesswork and speculation.
Founded in 2021 by veteran game developers, AI authorities, and economists with advanced degrees, Metanomic has so far raised $2.9 million in pre-incorporation capital. Seven types of players are available in Thunderstruck at launch: Assassins, hitmen, explorers, socialists, speeders, conquistadors, And the scholars.
These player types can be modified to match the priorities of specific game titles. As the platform analyzes data from additional games, player types will be improved and added, and thanks to Thunderstruck’s Bayesian AI, it can even determine the sequence of circumstances that triggered a particular player’s action.

Cheetahs race to the goals to be among the first to reach the end-game content or the highest level. They spend most of their time grinding experiences and playing for hours on end.
Conquerors enjoy struggling against adversity and overcoming impossible difficulties. They are persistent, strong, and repetitive in their quest to beat their goals.
