I’ve talked a little with HQ about a Kongregate desktop friends application and so now I’m curious about your views. Would any of you have an interest in something like this:

Thoughts?

Would it work on Macs too?

Ultimately the plan would be multi-platform, yes.

Make it compatible with macs! I am begging you!

Awesome idea, so its like the MSN messenger interface? Would you also be able to change things like on msn such as changing whether it alerted you o friends comming on line or not?

I’ve been waiting for something like this! Kudos to all who partook in its design. My biggest thought is when are you going to release it

And I now understand why you made that Attention:moderators thread. you’ve been working on this for a while :O.

Yes. That’s what its modeled after in some ways.

Phatcat: Kudos to all who partook in its design.

Just me :)

(not including the existing graphics and site functionality of course)

I made a basic iteration some time back, but didn’t go anywhere with it. Only a couple weeks ago did I actually put together a new version the features you see, so I haven’t really been working on it that much or that long.

Will there be “auto-sync” instead of having to pres Synchronize every time you make a change?

Good job! I don’t think I’d download it, as this is my family’s computer, but if I ever get a laptop, I would.

Of course, that would be a bit pointless. That was a forced refresh I did in the video. The point would be to run it as a background app, so it would be expected to do background work.

I don’t really have a full feature list or monstrous plans, I’m just testing the waters here to see what kind of interest there is. I use it myself, but obviously wouldn’t put more time into it unless there’s a good amount of interest.

 
Flag Post

I would find it very useful.

 
Flag Post

Well I’m definitely interested! I have a couple of questions about it though, but I’ll ask later when you get a bigger fan base.

 
Flag Post

Wow, that looks like a great idea. Now I won’t need to keep going to my friends page if I need to find someone.

 
Flag Post

personally, i would love that! :D

that seems like one of the best ideas i have seen in a while

 
Flag Post

looks spectaculary awesome!

 
Flag Post

Definitely.

Also, I’m on there on every one! And as a VIP! :P

 
Flag Post

Gimme!

Do it! Do it! Do it!

Do it! It looks like it would totally rock. =D

 
Flag Post

I would love that! (I would also love it to be mac compatible) … for the time being I will be using a mac… (no I’m not a traitor)… >.>

I really love the layout, by the way.

 
Flag Post

Haha, yay, I’m in there, as VIP too! xD

This would be awesome. Make it happen.

Would there also be a chat client add-on to this? ;D
