In 2016, we built a Pokemon GO fan-site for fun. It became pretty popular, so we started a company called GamePress, and continued building more sites for other games we enjoyed playing. We eventually grew large enough to be able to work on it full-time. Building GamePress was fun and fulfilling, but we soon realized how difficult it was to support games that didn't reach a certain size. Because the cost to support a site was so high, we could only support massively popular games. This did not match our original vision, we wished to support all games, not just a select few.
So we started Nalu to build a better alternative. A wiki that's smarter, more accessible, and more collaborative. A better GamePress. A better Fandom. We hope Nalu can one day be a positive space for communities, where its members work together to build something great! And to ensure that Nalu stays true to its users, we made it a non-profit foundation. Nalu can never be bought or sold, and all of our revenue is reinvested back into the product and community. We still have a long way to go, so we've put together a roadmap that explains how we're thinking about getting there. If you'd like to help, have any feedback/ideas, or just want to be part of the ride, join our Discord.
