Contribute to create of a social network dedicated to the players!


The project

Site Description :


  Elseplay is a non-generalist social network geared for players of any types and levels: video games, cards, roles, tray, and why not sports. But Elseplay is not a simple social network with a community aspect around the games. Indeed, it offers -of course- social functions as a complete system of notifications, instant messaging, add friends function; but also some exclusive features that also make Elseplay a useful site, which is more fun with her role couch.




The site includes several features :


I could cite many examples to evoke the site's features. Here is some one:


- Find other people near you (city, gender, age, etc.) or with common videogame interests (cross-platform video games, but also card games, roles, etc.);


- Consult the directory of streamers / caster or even discover and support new talent (automatic detection Live, possibility of a credit rating, etc.);


- Find other players for the game you want or simply discuss the game on our game sheets (possibility to note games, retrogaming, etc.), you can even create new ones easily;


- Tournaments all-in-one module: Join or create your own online tournaments, free or paid, cross-platforms. The tournaments module enables the creation of several types of tournaments: single and double elimination round robin (BO), etc.


- Reference and create your own team, or find teams that match up with you, for the game you want and follow their news easily


- Inform your collection or add to the characters you play in games, and meet old mates lost to follow up in-games


- Your actions on the website earns you experience and unlocks bonus thanks to the skills tree.




This is obviously not exhaustive list. I could mention the newsfeed, possibility to customize your interface, full translation in several languages and open to translate new ones, but it is up to you to discover these features!




Stretch Goals :


The main objective being exceeded, here the proposed development:

- if   7 000 € reached : advertising while 2 months on the major social networks and Google SEO (€ 2,400). Why ? Imagine how to find "Emilie from London" or "Kangaroo team" if they are not registered on the site because they did not know that such a site exist? Elseplay must have the hearing to be relevant and, indeed, have a small advertising budget necessary for a successful launch!

- If 10 000 € reached : development of non-implemented features in the upcoming initial version like a full newsfeed, achievements system etc.;

- If 15 000 € reached : development of a mobile application Elseplay.

- If 20 000 € reached : developing a roleplay card game based on rock-paper-scissors (Like Citadelle, Hearhstone) playable as full under Elseplay and with card and bonus unlockable, based on the XP on the site




Conclusion :


This is a very big project in terms of time, personal investment, technical data (several hundred pages) of these features and all this was done with limited means, but with the continued support of enthusiasts.


It's up to you now of realizing this ambitious project: give him the chance to exist.

FAQ Questions about the project

+ The Social Gaming Network is free?

Full use of this wesite is free and will stay like that. We are many business models for the website, reassuring about his future, such as buying points to boost his experience and highlight its profile, for example, but full use will remain free for all and ever.

+ Pourquoi utiliser Elseplay plutôt qu'un réseau social traditionnel?

Elseplay dispose actuellement de six fonctionnalités dédiées aux joueurs qui ne possèdent pas les réseaux sociaux actuels: créer et gérer des tournois, trouvez des streameurs, trouver ou retrouver d'autres personnes ayant des intérêts vidéo-ludiques communs, trouver facilement d'autres joueurs, ou encore trouver ou même créer vos propre profil équipe.

+ I can already create tournaments on other sites, watch live streams, or meeting people, what is the advantage of Elseplay?

Not exactly. Elseplay is a All-in-one, allow you to create and manage your tournaments: no need to create an Excel file for participants, to use a third-party website to create the tournament tree, or to make an image to the results: what time and simplicity of earned!
Another example ? You can receive notifications and mail when your favorite streameur is in Live. No more need "browser extension" or go on the platform of the streamer. You can also find streameurs by platform, by hosting, for games etc.
For meetings, you can find other people based on their city, their favorite consoles or platforms, or find a player with whom you played in a game including several years ago if he is naturally registered on Elseplay.
These are just two examples among many.

+ How to get Elseplay points and what did they do?

Basically € 1 = 9 points in normal times. You earn experience naturally using the site, when you create games sheet or leave a comments for example. After a certain amount of experience you level up, which saves you X points per level. Elseplay points can be used to obtain experience boosts, promote your profile, or may be provided (not exhaustive list).
