About this project

Online dating has become the norm.

Well, meeting strangers from the internet and hoping they're not weird, anyway.

The best way to find true love is to ask the important questions early on in a relationship. That way, you both know where you stand. But to date, no dating service truly offers a comprehensive view of the most vital aspect of their character: How would they rank the works of Nicolas Cage?

It's time to address that with Cage Match, a beautiful, fully responsive and mobile-friendly dating website that tells you everything you need to know. Whether you're into Leaving Las Vegas, or National Treasure (Really?) we'll find the perfect partner for you.

How it works

You create a profile. You add an image of yourself. You tell us your favourite Nicolas Cage films. Then we'll show you potential matches based on your Cage preferences, as well as some boring stuff like location and age range as chosen by you. 

All the images you see here are from our early, work-in-progress visual prototype, and not representative of the final product.

You can either like them, or dislike them. If you both like each other based on your profiles, then you can message each other to get Bangkok Dangerous. Or whatever.

Dating will be completely revolutionised. No more arguing over which masterpiece to watch on Netflix.

Simple, right? We're not breaking the mould here, we're just filling it with creamy Nicolas Cage goodness. That sounds wrong but I've written it down now and there's no way to edit text on computers that I know of.

Stretch Goal

To be honest, I hate it when there's a whole bunch of stretch goals which they'll either easily meet or never meet. So instead, I have one single stretch goal.

If we reach £30,000, I will add a Face/Off mode - What is Face/Off mode? I'm glad you asked. Face/Off mode allows you to chat with singles in your area - Except all of their profile pictures have been replaced by a picture of John Travolta. If love blossoms between you and your chatting partner, you can both select to reveal your true identities when you feel comfortable. It's a pretty good addition for people with low self-esteem and people who get off to pictures of John Travolta.

Risks and challenges

You can trust me, I'm from the internet.

Truth be told, I've made dumb stuff before, but not quite on this scale. I am a web developer and I honestly believe that this is completely achievable. I have the utmost confidence in saying that if this makes the target, it will happen. Believe it. Worst case scenario, it's a bit late and I end up finishing it on coffee shop WiFi. But I'm optimistic.

    You have more money than sense. And an amazing sense of generosity. I will personally come to visit you, and bring my copy of Con Air on DVD. We can watch it together. Multiple times. (UK Only)

    Really? I mean. Come on. It's my project and even *I* think this level is a bit much. For 5K you obviously get all of the above, as well as all manner of things, as you'll basically be my sugar daddy (or mommy). Want your profile to be the first thing everyone sees? Sure. Your name or company logo on every page? Alright. Hell, for this amount of money I will personally track Nicolas down and just shout your name at him so he becomes aware of your existence.
