The Start of TeleTrip

TeleTrip started in 2018 as a dream to teleport gamers outside of Singapore to have a different gaming experience by Pauline and Ruth of SOOS OIO LLP

The opportunities of gaming with friends in person decreased significantly as the comfort of gaming at home increases.  TeleTrip was started with a simple desire to gather gamers to game socially in person. The first ever TeleTrip was to KL, Malaysia to play DOTA 2 for 3D2N in Sept 2018. We had our first batch of 10 TeleTrippers who went to KL Pantheon, a gaming arena. We were very thankful to have a simple goodie bag for each TeleTripper and a simple prize of a customised winner tags for the champions. 

TeleTrip evolved into a full day onsite gaming event as few are able to go overseas together which we called TeleTrip  ExpressTertiary campuses like NUS, JCU and SUTD eventually opened up for TeleTrip Campus where gamers bring their own devices, mobiles or notebooks and we had good fun together. The pandemic in 2020 did not stop us. We went online and gathered even more gamers to play together at one time with TeleMatch. The number of game titles we played increased from one to multiple popular titles.

TeleTrip is the full community gaming experience of face-to-face bonding and learning.

TeleTrip only allows for individual registration where players are shuffled into balanced teams. TeleTalk kickstarts TeleTrip with fundamentals of teamwork and roles in the game. The teams will pit against each other in TeleMatch. After each game, a short team coaching will be provided to every team. The day ends over dinner together.

TeleTrip can also be in the form of a fun trip, usually overseas, to a major gaming event.

Here are the finalists of TeleTrip Festival 2022 at Digital for Life Festival!

The Initiators of TeleTrip

Pauline Phoon

CEO & Founder of COMEBACK
Pauline Phoon is the founder of COMEBACK PTE LTD and SOOS OIO LLP. Pauline noticed the societal and relational gaps that were being formed with the meteoric rise of gaming, and so she began to first plug those gaps with simple engagement activities for gamers. As her understanding of the psychology of games and gamers deepened, she developed various training programmes which continued to expand over the years. Her programmes and events are continually being refined as she factors in the changing landscape of the gaming world. Pauline is mindfully aware of the potential of the positive, as well as negative, benefits of gaming, and aims to maximize the former, while being fully cognisant of the latter. Ms Phoon has been in the forefront of Youth Culture for more than a decade through Monsoon Productions Pte Ltd and Soulmanna Live Pte Ltd. She was the first to introduce the YouTube wave from the United States into the Asia Pacific, working with first generation Asian American YouTubers like David Choi, Ryan Higa, Wong Fu Productions, etc. In her leisure time, Pauline loves to sketch and draw amongst her other hobbies, and is also looking forward to enjoying more travels in the near future.
