My name is Luke Stoward, I'm a student developer at Plymouth University and I'm here to ask for your help. But first...

Ever wanted to play a video game but didn't have anyone to play with? That one game that you absolutely love but nobody you know has it? Well I may just have the solution you're looking for.

I am currently working on a new website called TriggerWars, that aims to provide a new social connective platform for video gamers of all ages and skills. TriggerWars will allow players to create their own gaming sessions and events and connect with other players who want to join in and play games.  


Playing games is always better with friends. TriggerWars allows you to do just that, play games with others just like you! You can search to play with other players on any platform, whether it be Xbox, PlayStation, Nintendo, Windows, Mac, iOS or Android. 

TriggerWars simplifies the process of finding gamers to play games with you. You can select to play 1 of 6 different session types, ranging from competitive, to achievement hunting to casual and friendly play. 

TriggerWars builds on the user, as you connect and play with others, your rating increases. Your skill and dedication is reflected on TriggerWars via the Kudos system. You will earn Kudos points for a number of different activities on the site, awarding you with badges and medals to make you stand out from the rest. Here are some of the awards that can be unlocked.

TriggerWars also works on a user feedback system. Every session you join and play allows you to rate or slate the gamers you played with, contributing to their global TriggerWars rating. Your rating is important, it allows other players to limit who can join and play with them. Ensuring you only get the best players in your session.

Customise everything! You pick the type of session you want to play, the number of players you need and you can even control the ranking of the players that can join in with you. No more time wasters here!


Designing and developing this new system is expensive, I want to help make TriggerWars be the best it can be, for you and the rest of the gaming community. Your pledge will help make that happen. I will use your pledge to help further fund continued development far beyond the release of TriggerWars, providing continual improvements and new features. I will also be using the money you help raise to cover the costs of hosting TriggerWars. Ensuring that this new system will be up and running as soon as possible.

With you, I can make TriggerWars happen!



To show my appreciation, I will be offering a number of rewards, ranging from early exclusive access to the new system, to premuim accounts and even a nifty TriggerWars t-shirt! 

TriggerWars will be offering premium accounts on a subscription bases that when purchased will upgrade the user from the basic to advanced tiers. What this means is that users will unlock new awards and features across the site. They will also see no ads (happy days), along with the ability to promote your gaming session straight on the TriggerWars twitter stream! Further more as the site is futher developed, more and more pro features will be added for both  premium and non-premium members, ensuring you get the best experience possible. You could get yourself a premium account by pledging, so what are you waiting for!

What more can I say, other than thank you. Thank you for taking the time to read through my project. I hope I have convinced you that my project is worth funding and that TriggerWars will really improve the social connectivity for gamers all around the world.

Don't forget to pledge :D Couldn't forget that bit now could I!
