Today’s post is about a project I’ve had in my head for over a year but am finally acting on it now that I’ve been given the opportunity to have a team of 5 young and talented developers make my dream a reality. The idea is called Party Up.
Here’s the elevator pitch:
Party Up allows gamers to connect with others that are near them with similar interests in real time while keeping their personal details to themselves. The idea of playing online alone sucks but there’s not a good real time solution that puts gamers in touch with others that are also looking to play that exact game at that exact time. Forums are archaic and Twitter only works if you know the person already. Party Up allows people to forge new and long lasting friendships with people they would have never met otherwise.
Party Up can change how we find people to play games with online
There are other sites out there that try to do this. I think they do a miserable job at it. Sometimes gaming is an impulse to want to play. You don’t necessarily plan it in advance. But it sucks playing an online multiplayer game by yourself. Nothing drains the online experience faster than getting put in a lobby with terrible teammates.
I hope that Party Up can change how people play online and can help connect gamers all across the world with friends they didn’t know they have. When I started I Play COD seven years ago, I didn’t realize that I would form some friendships that would change my life. I think everyone should have that opportunity at their fingertips and it should be simple. That’s what I hope to accomplish with Party Up.
