Social Squid - Social Networking App for Gamers

At the moment there are very few places where gamers can find other players to play online multiplayer games with, this is especially true for younger gamers who need to protect their personal information. Most, then resort to posting their account information on public forums in order to make friends. This is especially risky as this way, they have no idea who has their details.

This is where Social Squid comes in, our plan is to develop an app that prioritises the safety of young gamers while allowing them the freedom to meet new people within their community. This means that Social Squid will have extensive safeguarding systems in place to make sure that young people can build an online gaming community in a safe and secure environment. Alongside this, we hope that we can teach younger people how to best keep themselves protected online. 

We are asking for help to fund the initial stages of development for the app and to give a boost so that we can potentially seek out further funding from investors. We are hoping that within the year we will be able to start development on this project and begin to make the gaming world safer. 

As gamers, we have personally experienced the negative side of the gaming community. This has included being contacted by people who aren't so well intentioned after posting details on an online forum. This is why Social Squid is so important to us and we are committed to creating the safe space we wish we had. We would be very grateful for any support in making this passion project of ours a reality and it would be a big step towards making our online gaming community a safer place.
