"Slack for Gamers" sure looks like Slack...(discordapp.com)

    I'd disagree though I am a bit bias.

    I'd be a liar if I said we haven't been influenced by Slack. We use Slack every day at work. We've witnessed how a great communication app has changed our lives and some of that spills over to how we are looking to improve communication or gamers. In fact, some of the stuff we use is open sourced by Slack themselves like their text view controller.

    The idea behind Discord was IRC+Flowdock+Mumble (we used Flowdock at the time), and the early design was heavily influenced by email apps, specifically Sparrow.
