Social media users utilize websites to stay in touch with friends, keep up with current trends, voice opinions, share laughs, and meet new people. Gamers are no different on these sites but they have to swim through a lot of other people’s nonsense to see what they’re more interested in. Well, if you’re a gamer who would rather talk gaming, get the latest news and reviews, guess what, there may be a new site just for you and others like you!
A Kickstarter campaign will begin on November 30th for GameCritter, a new kind of social media site dedicated to all things gaming. The site will combine some of the best concepts from social media sites like Facebook, Twitter, Metacritic, Reddit and Quora in an all-in-one site. For gamers, the site will allow users to post statuses, community-driven reviews for games, and join in discussions by asking/answering questions.
Users are rewarded for participating on the site and interacting with others in a unique leveling up system as well as earning badges/achievements and joining clans. Clans can earn points when members are active in participating in game discussions, writing reviews etc. Clans can also be a place where friends share experiences from games they’ve played by uploading pictures or videos.
GameCritter will also be a place for game developers and publishers to reach out to gamers and allowing gamers the chance to participate in crowdfunding of new projects, build up a fan base, and allow users to buy games from them directly through GameCritter.
If the Kickstarter is successful, GameCritter may be up and running by July of 2019!
