Gamester is a web and mobile service that allows you to make a completely customized game based on any person you know. It’s perfect for kids’ birthdays, an anniversary gift for a gamer, holiday gift for a friend, or even just to make a game about yourself!

You can create a free game that uses a photo of a person’s head as the character’s head similar to JibJab or have our artist draw a custom character in your game for only $29.

Early in 2015, my friend Jackie asked me to make a game about her boyfriend for their anniversary. I loved the idea so much but she only had a $50 budget. If I tell that to anyone in the game industry, they laugh and say it’s impossible. I wasn’t going to give up that easy, so I decided to make an indie game that had them as the main characters for free.

The game is entirely based about them. The art is all custom-drawn by an artist to look exactly like them, all the enemies are based on their favorite animals, the music is a track Jackie selected, the menu colors are their favorite colors, and Jackie helped design the intro story and gameplay. We made the game as much about them as a couple as we possibly could, and on their anniversary, Jackie showed Patrick the game. He LOVED it. He sat there and played through the whole game in 2 hours. Both of them couldn’t thank us enough for the amazing unique gift and the enjoyment it brought them.

After I started to promote it a bit there was an overwhelming demand of personalized games from my friends and family. Everyone wanted to be the hero in a game or make one for a gamer they care about. I quickly realized this thing was going to be bigger than just one free game for a friend; I could really use my skills to bring couples, families, and friends closer together with this new way personalized gift. I’ve spent the past 14 months developing an automated system that simplifies game development to a point that anyone can make their own game in a few minutes!

We’ve had 10 games created as pre-pre-orders this past Christmas and every single one of them loved it. We’ve gotten comments such as “This is the best gift I’ve ever gotten!” to “omg is this really a game about me?? It looks so much like me!”
