My roommate introduced me to this VoIP program that's an alternative to Skype/Teamspeak/Ventrilo/etc called "Discord". Claiming to create the best of all of those worlds and yet be entirely free. From what I've seen so far it seems quite nice. It can run entirely in a browser (if you want) which means if you want to add someone to your server who doesn't normally use the app (me at the time), they don't have to commit to installing a whole new program. It also has a really pretty UI which looks a lot (aka exactly) like Slack, if you're familiar with that.
What do you all think? Has anyone else heard of this? Does anyone else hate skype as much as I do?
Also: what do you guys think of having an itch.io community Discord server? The server itself would be free it would just be a matter of getting people to use it.
