Dreamirl is a project inspired by a team of young people passionate about video games.
The idea was to create the best possible deal for players, and here are a few things we noticed :
Obviously, we had to come up with a solution that didn't show any obvious drawback on our part because we are indie, and we intend to remain that way.
After some time, we came up with the idea of "Crowd-funding" + "Crowd-design".
The Dreamirl's goal is to create a platform with free games that are accessible from any decive that is equipped with a decent web-browser.
After games are created, we keep working on them following what the community wishes to see, and developping accordingly.
As a gamer, you can simply get on the platform, and play games for free without registration. If you wish to, you can register an account giving you the ability to use the multiplayer system as well as the saving system (and all of that still for free).
If at any given moment, you become a fan of a certain game or idea, you can buy "DreamPoints", and you will then be able to spend them on whatever you want (a specific feature, a whole game etc...).
Now, what do you do if you come up with a great idea for a game ?
Well, it is quite simple, you create your idea using some of the "DreamPoints" you got, we then go over it and check if it is doable (if we do not understand some parts of it, we will contact you for further questions), and then, it will end up on display on the website.
At this point, your idea can be supported by any other user registered on the site, and if it reaches a certain goal, it automatically turns into a "valid" state on the site.
Following the validation, we're then in charge of giving life to your idea, implement it into the game, and make it available for the whole world to play it !
There is no specifics regarding a deadline, but we need all the support we can get now !
Each and every person who takes up some of its free time to support us, encourage us, like us on Facebook, leave us feedback or anything like this will only make us even more motivated to finish this project and hopefully make it last and grow with you !
You can already play the first few games we made, and we are currently trying to improve them as fast as we can. We are obviously open to any early suggestions, ideas and feedbacks to make it better. You can either do this via Facebook or Twitter, or even send us an email at contact[ at ]dreamirl[ dot ]com
If you have great ideas, we will make great games !
To be able to make games efficiently, we created an engine that meets our needs, which allows us to quickly create games without duplicating what has already been done.
This Game Engine is Open Source, but it is not as easy to use as "GameMaker" or "Construct" for example, it requires some programming skills.
The purpose of this engine is to provide developers with a straight up experience to create games easily, and submit them to us so that their creations can be made available on our website.
Any Game created by the community can make it to our Games List and will be improvable by the community itself the same way our own games are improvable : using the "DreamPoint" system.

The project really started during April 2012. We are a team of young, crazy and passionate people, and we intend to remain that way.
The Dreamirl team is growing fast, big projects require big teams, and it is for this reason that we cannot hire openly. We need to keep a certain organisation amongst our teams, and it requires a lot of works overall. If you happen to be very interested in joining us, be sure to let us know ;)
You can find us on hacktaons and jams as it is a very good way to keep us motivated and to keep us working as hard as possible.
nb : Ordered by date of arrival - the position of a person does not represent his level of skills. Everyone is important, remember it !
A few occasions led us to work with some people that aren't part of the team, for instance during jams, or simply because they enjoy doing so, but we wanted to thank them for their contribution and support, so here they are :
