I want to begin this project in March 2018.
Blonde Zombies is an EZine (digital magazine) with a dating section and a preview of our web comic (first few pages free, all pages free for vip members - these members also get a 50% discount on our first game) made by Monster Hearts Art Team in development and launches in April 2018. In the meantime we are gathering content to put up. We have audio and video interviews as well as feature articles. We will be focusing on interviews that address questions that our target audience might have – creative amateurs and obsessive fans of pop culture and fringe/cult entertainment and art (including cosplay fans, movie fanatics, retro gamers, comic collectors and creators, tech heads, horror and gore fans, arthouse and foreign movie buffs, indie game devs, tabletop gamers, hackers, etc.) The website will have a dating feature and additional functionality will include info about the Mutant Chronicles Universe Franchise and a player finder for these games. As well as links to additional resources - Mutant Chronicles is a cult techno-fantasy tabletop wargaming franchise with more than four incarnations - Warzone: Mutant Chronicles, Mutant Chronicles 3rd Ed RPG, Warzone: Resurrection and Doomtroopers (there is also a snes game and a UK film and novelisation of the film by Matt Forbeck) - most of the art is by Paul Bonner. The game world has taken a more European approach to story and world, rather than what you might find in the more commercial Warhammer: 40k.
This gig is to build the digital magazine website with a personal dating section, members-only forum and subscription system, as well as the platform for the web comic and a way to publish audio files, video files and feature articles. Also a tribute page for MCUF with links and a player finder.
My budget is around NZ$155 not inlcuding hosting and domain.
