About

Who we are

We are a global initiative aiming to create the next generation community for independent game developers.

What it is

LuduStack is "one place stop" dedicated to game developers, visual artists, sound artists and other professionals of the game industry. The goal is to keep a safe, free, full of resources and features, community managed place to help freshers and experient game developers to achieve their goals and deliver great games to the world. We offer a centralized place for game industry people, where users can aggregate other gamedev communities and social networks while offering a set of tools and features that can add some value to the game development process.




You can check it out right now at https://www.ludustack.com

But there are already other communities

Yes, there is already great communities like GameJolt, Itch.io and Gamedev.net, to name just a few. They are great and the intent of this project is not to replace them.

While these other communities are great for games, they are "not so great" for the developers themselves. Of course, they have very useful set of features like jam management, game sales, managing versions and devlogs, but they lack more tools to improve the game creation process itself.

The purpose of this community is to improve the collaboration bewteen independent game developers while providing links to other communities, centralizing them in a single place, offering innovative tools like gamedev-oriented project management system and consolidating already consagrated tools like app icon generator and social sharing.

One of our strenghts is the Think feature. A brainstorm management system where the community members are able to vote on the next feature to be implemented, discuss it and suggest improvements. The brainstorm system is present for user-generated content as well. Users can also post polls and have other users voting on their own questions like "Wich menu is better?" or "Should I hire a PR?", the users decide what they want to ask to the community.

This is a common interaction on social networks and we will bring it here and improve it.
The Team Up! feature is a great way to recruit members for your project and show to the community who worked on each game or game jam.
Another innovation of this project is to give more voice to visual artists and music/sound creators. Everyone will have their place here.


The Name

The name ludustack is made from two words:
  • LUDUS in latin means game
  • STACK in english is "a set of tools to achieve a goal (usually software)"
So, the LUDUSTACK is a place where you can organize your stack to make a game while interacting with other fellow devs.


Who can contribute

Anyone can contribute. If you are a new or experienced game developer, you can contribute to this initiative. You can either help us by becoming one of our patrons and receive some bonus to show your pride on the comunity itself or you can contribute working with us. We need:
  • Developers: Coding, refactoring, modeling;
  • Webdesigners: prototyping pages, creating concepts, creating email templates;
  • Visual Artists: Creating placeholders, standard images, icons, etc;
  • Game designers: The gamefication of the system;
  • Translators: Help keep the translations up to date as the system grows (Check the translation progress);
  • Idea guys: Yes, we need lots of ideas, innovative and humorous
Everyone can contribute since eachone can give ideas on how to promote their own art (code/2D/3D/sound/music) helping the system to become more useful for everyone.

How to contribute

You can visit our Project Page on Azure DevOps to read more and follow the progress and if you decide to join us, send us an email. The code is opensource and is hosted on GitHub, meaning everyone can read and help improve or copy to themselves and maybe launch a better one.
Goals
$0 of $300 per month
When we reach $ 300 per month, we will be able to pay server costs.
