  1. New people: Read this, say hi.

    Hallo I thought i should post in here as i'm a long time lurker and long term reader of the podcast. You may know me from organising the Brighton, UK arm of the whatwouldmolydeux game jam and posting about my game news site (gdne.ws) on the forums before actually posting in this thread or anything else. Hi! Alternatively you have never heard of me, in that case, also Hi!
  2. Velocity (ps mini)

    Just checked out this ps mini/vita/psp game by some local brighton guys (http://www.futurlab.co.uk/). It is pretty slick! It is some good fun old school shoot em up stuff, with a cool teleport mechanic. I've put about 2 hours in so far and now the entire world is scrolling upwards for me! Any one else played it? 2mTiirkFL3M
  3. My First Indie Game

    Getting a 400 error on http://www.brawsome.com.au/
  4. Just remembered to reply to this. I'll add RSS feed to the roadmap of stuff to build. I have a few other bits i'd like to add first though like search, tagging, comments(?) and better user profiles. I'm not sure how useful an rss feed would be, if the volume of uses on the sites gets large (which i hope it does some day) then the feed could just end up as noise. I'll see how quickly I could add it, it might be useful now whilst there aren't that many users. As for being a marketer? Nope, I'm a web developer/engineer Anyone else have suggestions for features they'd like to see added?
  5. Thanks guys! I just rolled out an update so you can add custom titles, e.g. if you are plugging a game you made you could do "Show GND: I made a cool game!" or whatever. You can now also flag posts you think are inappropriate, spam or just think don't belong on the site. They wont get automatically removed but I'll moderate them later. Thanks for the feedback Chris, I'll add something about it to the about page.
  6. Thanks! The design is fairly generic tbh, it just uses twitter bootstrap without any real changes. just means i can develop quickly without the need for a designer/front end coder The difference between this and Reddit is that I don't really like Reddit, to be perfectly honest, i've never quite got along with it. Reddit does not have enough signal to noise for me, in both content and design. gdn was built as a simple solution to that, ripping off hacker news, a site I do like for its simplicity. I'd like the content of gdn to be more than just development though, basically gaming related stuff that is not reviews, previews and general news, or anything from ign, but more refined content for a more refined reader perhaps the name game dev news is a bit misleading, but then game news would be too broad. Any way, i guess I cant control the content too much, if people are submitting stuf that gets upvoted, then that is obviously what people like The more people join up, the better the content will be.
  7. Ah, nerds! Didn't see that, thanks. I'll post it in there instead. Unfortunately I cant delete this post anymore, hopefully a mod will be able to delete it.
