Inspiration

Playing any competitive multiplayer game usually means you're bound to run into some sort of toxicity harassment from someone else. This is only made worse by the racial, homophobic, and transphobic slurs that are often thrown around as insults. We wanted to create a product that not only gives members of these marginalized communities a way to share their experiences but also help tackle these problems.

What it does

It allows for queer gamers to share their experiences with regards to certain games which are then shared with others. This lets new gamers to know whether certain games are supportive of their community. It also also acts allows for these gamers to share their thoughts on how these games can improve and how developers can be more inclusive of marginalized groups. It also acts as an educational website to help teach individuals why their language or rhetoric is harmful and how to become an ally.

How we built it

The website was built with HTML, CSS, and JS. Most of the content was researched thoroughly. We also posted on various social media platforms in order to talk to people about their experiences in regards to some of these games.

Challenges we ran into

Unfortunately, due to all our members working 8-9 hours a day, we weren't able to put as much time into as we were all exhausted. It was also difficult to find times where we could meet virtually to discuss as half of our team worked closing shifts while the other worked opening shifts.

Accomplishments that we're proud of

We're proud of what we were able to create given our somewhat little experience compared to the other competitors as well as our limited time.

What we learned

It was definitely a great learning experience talking to various people and learning about how they felt and things we might never experience. Part of our team did not have much web development knowledge prior to this so this also introduced them to some basic web development.

What's next for Untitled

We like to get more people to share their stories with us as well expand from only looking at the multiplayer competitive games to more open world multiplayer or single player games.
