About

OLD WAY

Unlike traditional methods of online dating we allow our users to get acquainted through playing video games. No profile pictures or superficial descriptions. Just games, the way Flynn (from TRON) wanted.

HOW IT WORKS

REWARDS

A Huge Thank You! It may not seem a lot to you, but to us this means a lot. Your name or whatever you want to call yourself will be immortalized on our website and we'll mention you in our Twitter feed!

You'll also get a Special Thanks on our website and Twitter, plus exclusive behind-the-scenes updates from LF DATE team!

Founders will toast  to you (specifically and individually) for the world to see (record it on video). We are ready to destroy our livers for this cause! You will also get immortalized on our website and a shout out on Twitter. This is what we'll need:

  • Who to dedicate the toast to
  • Any special message
  • Any (PG-13) non-copyright images you'd like for us to display while toasting!

Access to limited edition avatar accessories and premium features. Early beta access! Swag up your avatar and get in early!

This in app loot is currently TOP SECRET, so we can't show you what's coming out. We're sure you'll feel special!

Stickers stickers stickers! Over 10 designs to choose from. They're slick, stylish and they'll stick like mynocks to your power cables. You will get 3 of our awesome stickers!

Mugs! You need them and they will need you too!  You should get one. Don't you want to be unique? They are limited edition. Face it, we can't feed ourselves just selling mugs. After this kickstarter we aren't selling these anymore. Get them while they're still around. But if you donate to us now we get to code another day.

Pick from more than 10 designs! It's like a zombie buffet, but you only get to eat one brain. 

One of the basic needs. Might as well face it, these original designs are so cool. If you ever see another nerd gamer, you might hear a "/cheer". Once again, you can pick and choose from our 10 designs. 

Make it happen gamer, go out (if you ever do go outside) with a new style.

You get to choose from our legendary 10+ designs! The only difference between this and the t-shirt above is that you'll be warmer. Wookies will envy you because they don't have fancy writing on their fur. 

HERO Package (first 10 backers only) - Half off our Legendary Swag Package, limited to first 10 backers.

Look below. You get all that just for being the early bird. It's true, the early bird does get the worm!

Legendary Swag Package - You get all the LFDate Swag: 

  • Sweatshirt
  • T-shirt or tank top
  • Mug
  • Decal combo
  • Founder's toast to you

Pick our brains and find out! For those, not in San Francisco, we can have coffee and Skype.

Custom Avatar - We make an avatar based on your specifications (iOS and Android friendly). You get to be an avatar! We'll talk with you and then create you. 

SAVIOR Package - We are eternally grateful and will take you out to a fancy dinner in San Francisco, let you pick our brains and send you a happy dance video of us, just for you!

ABOUT US

The three of us, Deric, Raymond, and Sara, make up LFDate. We are a small company dedicated to bringing intimate connections to the gaming community. Our professional background is in mobile gaming, software engineering and operations management. We hope to bring the gaming community closer and make forums, blogs, FB pages a thing of the past. Thank you for your support.

WHERE WE ARE NOW

The Android version of LFDate is near completion and the backend has been built to scale. We have fueled this project with our sweat, tears and savings for the last few months and now, Kickstarters, we need your help to get us to the finish line. LFDate is our passion and we want this to become a reality. With your help, we will aid gamers on their quest to find that special someone to go adventuring with.

TIMELINE

Thanks to your help, we will continue development. After securing our glorious food supplies of instant noodles, we'll implement additional features such as avatar customizations, and voice chats along with building  out an iOS and web version of our application. We'll send all of you updates with what's happening at the workshop. 

USE OF PROCEEDS

We'll make sure that every dollar that is donated, is well spent. We strongly believe that people should be able to meet online. What better way than by doing something they already enjoy - playing games together!

We have a simple stack. Heroku hosting a Node.js server, using a MongoDB store, and a python server for our number cruncher. 

Risks and challenges

As with any dungeon raid, there are considerable risks. Even though we have all the right gear, soulstones and pots sometimes things may not go the right way. If for any reason we are unable to complete within the development time period, we pledge our life for Aiur and will call in reinforcements. We are a team of experienced developers who not only can get the job done, but also know other powerful magical programmers who have agreed to help us. We do this full time and want this project to succeed! Lok-Tar Ogar!
