How would you like to make a new friend among your fellow attendees BEFORE you show up for Protospiel Online weekend?
With our Buddy Match system, you can get paired with one or more other attendees who have opted in to be in touch with you via one-on-one Discord direct messages. You and your match(es) can choose the mode and frequency of your contact to best serve your needs as you prepare for Protospiel Online weekend.
Plus, with our introduction-based system, you’ll get practice creating answering quick questions about yourself and your projects — helping you gain confidence if you’re looking to present your game designs to publishers or sell them yourself to the gaming public.
How it Works
- Use the Buddy Match Sign-up form to answer a few quick questions about yourself and your projects.
- The deadline to submit your answers is Saturday, July 30, 2022 @ 4pm EDT.
- As the intros come in, we’ll post them in our Discord #buddy-match channel (available only to badge holders for the next Protospiel Online weekend).
- For those that give permission, we’ll present their intro messages during a live meeting in our Discord 🤝Introductions Stage channel Saturday, July 30, 2022 @ 4pm EDT. We’ll also invite live attendees to join us on stage to read their answers from the signup form in their own voice or ask follow up questions on other live attendees’ answers.
- For those that can’t attend live, we’ll store the replay as an unlisted YouTube video and share it in the #buddy match channel.
- The match-making survey will open at the end of the livestream:
- If you submitted an introduction, you’ll have access to the survey link both via email and in the #buddy-match Discord channel.
- To complete the survey:
- Watch the livestream, the replay, and/or review the intros posted in the #buddy-match Discord channel.
- Choose 1, 2, or 3 as the max number of matches you’d like to receive.
- Check off the names of people you’d be interested to connect with.
- Submit the survey.
- We’ll close the matching survey submissions Wednesday, August 3 2022 @ midnight EDT.
- We’ll pair people based on their mutual interest in connecting with one another.
- You’ll get an email by Friday, August 5 2022 with info to help you contact your match via Discord DM.
