What Is Overwolf?

Overwolf is the world's leading framework for in-game apps & mods. Just like how Buff's overarching mission is to get players like you rewarded for the time you spend playing your favorite games, Overwolf has been doing the same for the creator side of the gaming, paying out $29 million to mod and app creators in 2021.

Overwolf empowers independent creators with the tools to build applications they had only dreamed of for the games you and fellow Buff users love. In order to achieve this mission at scale, keeping their technology safe to use for both creators and gamers is one of their utmost priorities.
