Gamester is a mobile and web application that allows users to create games about themselves or friends. Users take a photo and then select a genre for the game they want it to be in. They can then play it right away or customize it to change the background, enemies, main character body, collectible, name, write the story, and even record their own voice acting. Some of the customization feature are for members only which is only a $1/month. Each month we'll be releasing new games and customizations for users to unlock.
Princess In Peril - Our friend Jackie asked us to make a game about her and her boyfriend for their anniversary but only had a $50 budget. We did it anyways and they LOVED it. Customized Games - Friends and family started messaged both her and myself to create customized games for them. We made a few and started to build a system that anyone could user to make their own game. They could request our artist to create customized assets for their game and even buy merch. Expo-ing and User Testing - We demoed early prototypes of Gamester at PAX East, Playcrafting, and Casual Connect while doing a Kickstarter campaign. We were able to raise $12k in donations, but had a $20k goal so cancelled the campaign before it was over. Pre-Production Design - Since then we’ve been conducting research and iterating Gamester to lower development costs and optimize the experience. We’ve come to a point now where the UX is much more thought out and development on the final version has begun. We’re currently looking for a publisher to help with the PR and marketing for the release mid-2019.
