The idea for my online community is essentially an overlay program for PC games that serves as a real-time support system. Similar to Steam or xFire, the community could be used and accessed in and out of game. Rather than be a standalone community website, this would ideally be a plug-in or improvement for Steam or xFire users that allows them to do more while in-game.
Currently, the only support you can access from Steam and xFire’s game overlays is your friends list, a chat room for the game you’re in, or a web browser which tends to be laggy and difficult to use. For my idea however, I am going to discuss it more simply as just an add-on to Steam’s current program. Therefore, my program, which I have come up with the name “OnTop” for, will improve the way PC gamers give and receive video game help.
