Welcome!

My name is Hamish however online I often use the alias Kurios. I am a 22 year old Australian Web and Software Developer with over 5 years experience in a wide range of technologies. My goal is to develop original ideas and designs into free to use* tools however they will cost money to host and develop. This is where you come in, having brilliant people like yourself support these projects is invaluable as these projects wont be developed without this support. So without further ado, how about I explain the project I decided to begin with, The iGDC** Web Tool.

iGDC** once fully developed, will be a multi-use tool for the design, collaboration/group development and PR functions of the development process.This platform will support all styles, genres and physical platform games that are in development or pre-release stages. Users will have a choice as to what type of user they wish to be, these types are:
  • Follower - A user that browses through the projects displayed and chooses ones that interest them so that they receive updates on progression and events for these games.
  • Supporter - A follower that decides to donate to one of the games they follow to help ensure its success and maybe receive rewards from developers. (All donations will be handle by third-party donation tools not this tool)
  • Game Designer - A Game Designer starts their own project/s and uses this tool to advertise their concept. Attracting developers to collaboratively construct the game, Supporters to provide finances for development and Followers to express thoughts and ideas for the developers to think on.
  • Game Developers - This is a rather extensive category as these users can be sound/FX artists, programmers, 2D artists, etc, anyone with the skills required to develop the games they have applied for and been accepted for by the appropriate designer.

I could continue but I feel I would be droning on a bit so to summarise, this project is an online tool that allows for group collaboration on the development of user posted concepts and designs. There are other collaborative tools out there for developers but difference with this project is main differences are the ability to keep followers and supporters up to date in one place, and the extensive design process that allows a game designer to download a portable and dynamic GDD (Game Design Document) so they can keep the design on them where ever it may be needed. iGDC** also advertises the project platform wide so the sites traffic have the potential of becoming followers or even supporters.

If you become a patron, you will support the development of online tools that will benefit people around the world however there are some smaller  bonuses too. All Patrons receive:
  • Donor Access to the Community Discord Server and a tier appropriate rank.
  • Access to Patron only posts.
  • Name on a credits page attached to the website.
  • A visual rank on your website account to show off your support.
  • Access to snippets of HTML, CSS, Javascript or PHP that I find useful and adaptable.
  • And of course you become part of the community!
Higher tier patrons will receive: 
  • Access to polls for the implementation of features on the site allowing these patrons to vote on upcoming features and changes.
Whatever your reason for becoming a Patron I'd just like to say Thank You! I can't develop these projects without your help.
Please Note: 
  • All website based bonuses only apply once the website is up and running. This is my first development goal however it may take a short while to achieve. There may also be a delay for your name to be added so please be patient for these bonuses.
  • You do not have to donate to join the community, though I would appreciate it if you did, you can join via the Discord link displayed below.
  • Anyone in the community can suggest ideas and preference for future features and changes but the higher tier supporters are allowed to vote to implement the change or not. Please refer to tiers on the right to see which tiers this applies to.

If you have made it this far, Thank You, I do appreciate it and hope I have made this project some what understandable however if you don't fully understand or you would like to read into it more, I will be releasing concepts and information throughout the development so do join my discord as displayed below. Thank you for you time, if you have already become a patron, Thank you very much, you are invaluable and vital to the development of these projects. If you haven't yet become a patron, please do, see you soon.

Join my discord here - https://discord.gg/UZzSAKx
NOTE: Patrons will automatically be able to join the discord and will be given tier specific roles


* 'free' means there is no cost for users to join or use the projects I develop. I will release the source code to patrons on some projects however for the safety and privacy of the potential users of this tool, I will not be releasing the source code of this project.

** 'iGDC' stands for 'indie Game Development Community' which is a working title for this project. This title will be finalised once I have made sure of its legal restrictions and availability.

PS. I do apologise for the lack of intro video however I didn't have a mic or camera that could provide a good quality introduction.
