We're proud to announce that SilverStripe is the engine behind the very cool and recently relaunched Guitar Hero website.

The site is filled to the brim with video and social functions, and is a community-focussed base for fans of the popular console game. The website integrates with the game itself, publishing a global leaderboard and facilitating online tournaments.

BLITZ is the company behind the design and development of the site. Noah Gedrich, Director of Technology at BLITZ, tells us about their experience building the website:

“With only a six week production cycle for the new, we needed a CMS that would give us control over our content and let us localize it, without getting in the way of our creative. SilverStripe was the perfect fit, giving us not only that control and localization support, but because of the Sapphire framework underpinning the whole thing, it also provided us with a development structure for all of the additional programming required by the many social functions of this very complex site.”

You can learn more about the website in a blog post by BLITZ—but really, you should go and visit the website!
