At ClipThat, our mission is to provide a unique platform for gaming enthusiasts to share short gaming clips whilst allowing others to consume and enjoy the content provided to them. We want to offer those who are passionate about gaming an alternative option to share their content with a gaming focused community whilst providing a safe environment to interact with others.
