About this Project:

This project is about being able to keep up to date with all the new games and updates. It also allows you to play games, supporting all platforms. This game encourages people to make friends and have fun!
The challenge or that our project addresses is being bored and making it easier for people to find games to play for all ages. Also, to interact with other players and make friends.

We came up with our idea by thinking of what a lot of kids and people like these days, which is video games. So we made an app that makes it easier for all people to play certain video games even on mobile.

If we could build this project, then it would function as a very simple app to use, and it takes you to most games and it also shares upcoming news and updates to games and even new games.

Feedback from the Judges:

👏 Manager & Designer at NERD Escapes — Emoti-Con Judge
Game Searcher feels like a neat way to organize video games of all formats and gaming consoles. I like your idea of expanding on these features much like how Steam, the video game digital distribution service, provides. Exploring the idea of a more user friendly community and a fun app to make friends while gaming sounds like a blast! I would love to see how we could add elements that would help groups of friends who game together, or even how the game could effect the way the chat groups or voice chats work, for example how Among Us would benefit from features that could mute groups as they play! Great job incorporating a spot that could keep gamers informed of new noteworthy games and updates! Categories and tags in the UI could help gamers come together based off similar interest and could pair well with groups in the communities who focus on those themes, like a gamers version of a book club! Nice teamwork setting up ideas that could help gamers have great conversation starters when making friends in a safe and fun setting.

👏 Instructional Design Manager at Mouse — Emoti-Con Judge
I love the idea of a social gaming platform. It sounds like a fun and engaging way to foster and expand a sense of community through a common interest! The simplicity of the app and its ability to provide access to a diverse range of games, along with sharing upcoming news and updates, showcases its potential as a one-stop solution for gaming enthusiasts. Your presentation was concise, easily understood, and highlighted the app's most important features as well.
