A vision, a mission - Grindosaur and what it will be
The gaming industry certainly has come a long way since the 1970s. It grew from a small niche, catering to nerds to a full-fledged titan – even rivaling the music and movie industry. By the end of 2018, it became the dominant sector in the entertainment industry and embraced by millions worldwide. And with more games releasing every single year, it is far from being over anytime soon.
The massive growth of the gaming industry we experienced during the last couple of decades was only made possible through rapid technological advancements. Advancements that brought us the internet, smartphones, and, you guessed it: gaming. They changed our daily lives extensively, but they also created new sub-industries and opportunities for thousands interested in said fields.
One of these sub-industries that formed around video games is media outlets. While not being revolutionary or new in any way, as they already existed hundreds of years prior, they were still relevant to the industries’ success. But to this very day, the focus lies on game coverage in the form of news articles and guides without further developing as the games industry did.
This problem is caused mainly through the usage of limited frameworks and the technical inability of their operators – much to the demise of the average gamer who desperately needs more information than currently available. And technology should never be a limiting factor when it comes to progress in any way or form.
And here is where we come in.
The Grindosaur project set out to build a custom software solution to cater to the gaming community at large to offer game databases and custom tools to step up their daily gaming experience. We think it is of utmost importance to provide communities and individuals alike an informative and welcoming environment, so everyone can grow beyond their current capabilities when it comes to knowledge and proficiency.
This empowerment will get achieved by creating detailed databases containing invaluable information about video games such as items, drop rates, and more, as well as tools and apps utilizing, said data. Furthermore, we want to incorporate well-written and -researched articles about upcoming content and how to best currently available content. In the end, we want to provide a hub for interested individuals to learn about how to improve their gaming experience and to make it easier to find and interact with like-minded people across the globe.
Sounds insane, right? Let us make it happen!
