Gamester is an app that allows anyone to create a personalized game. It’s like Jib Jab but for Games. Users just take a photo of their face or of a friends and then select different options to customize their game. That’s it! Now they can play and share a game all about them or someone they know.
HOW IT WORKS
I ran a Kickstarter for the project with a goal of $25,000. I worked with my Giant Fox Studios team to create a solid demo of the application and traveled to several gaming expos to showcase it and promote the Kickstarter campaign. At PAX East, we set up a mini game dev studio in a 10x10 booth where visitors could take a photo in front of professional lighting equipment, meet our artists and get drawn if they donate, and record their voice acting in a personal sound booth. We won first place at a PlaycraftingNYC expo and were flown out to San Francisco to demo the game at Casual Connect.
LET'S PLAY INTERVIEW
We did a let's play interview that streamed on Twitch during Casual Connect expo. Here you can see a full playthrough of our first demo of the game. We've changed a lot since this video was taken.
