Our friends over at GamesRepublic have just announced the Indie Spotlight, an Indie DB supported initiative for indie developers and publishers to beam their games to the masses. Getting recognition for your hard work is only fair and the Indie Spotlight aims to provide better visibility for Indies to the world.
"Being a part of 11 bit studios we're indies at heart and supporting indie games is a part of our grand strategy. With Indie Spotlight we want to give indie developers a great place which they deserve, to showcase and sell their games, as well as a proper promotional push via our own channels and our friends' & partners' in the gaming industry."
The goals stated for the Indie Spotlight will be achieved via different activities from GamesRepublic and their partners, including Indie DB by:
At Indie DB we're proud to be a partner of GamesRepublic and the push for getting indie developers more recognition and support for the countless hours they invest into their projects. So if you are keen on checking out some awesome indie games, head on over to the Indie Spotlight area. We've got more in the works with GamesRepublic so keep your eyes peeled for some great changes coming to Indie DB.
We've been hard at work behind the scenes and are proud to announce our latest feature - Indie DB Giveaways. We have a great community of passionate members and whether you are a gamer, developer or both - we want to thank you for calling Indie DB home by either giving you a free game or free marketing for your game.
Spreading the word and getting your game on the homepage is tough, we know! To help our developers reach a wider audience any game that exists on Indie DB is eligible to host a giveaway granting you 24 hours of uninterrupted homepage exposure to help your game grow. Members of our community can then join the giveaway and go into the draw to win a key for your game.
We're really excited about this feature and hope that our developers embrace it as an alternative to paid advertising which is unfortunately beyond the budget of many indie developers. There's plenty more exciting features we're working on behind the scenes so keep an eye out for them. If you have any questions please let us know in the comments section below, or read more about the giveaway system.
In an effort to make sharing downloads easier, we have created a handy widget system. You will now see each download page has an "embed widget" button. It works just like a Youtube embed. Copy and paste the widget anywhere you want (here, on your homepage, forums etc). Then the widget contains a button to begin the download directly without any messing around. Here is it in action using Brutal Doom as the example.
Furthermore, the widget system works on virtually any profile URL on the site. Just add /widget to the end of the URL you are visiting to see it in widget form.
After talking about it for years, work on v5 of the site has finally begun. Our goal is keeping the same layout with minor improvements, that focus on usability, responsiveness and mobile support. This way we retain familiarity while improving everything else. At the moment we are just experimenting with ideas, but if you would like to see what we have done we plan on opening up our development in the group here. We expect v5 development to take about 4 months or so, and welcome all feedback and bug reports in our Github board.
Subscribers get instant access to the alpha, so if you love the site and want to support us - we greatly appreciate it!
In a move that finally elevates the experience of surfing the web to the conceptual highs first envisioned by sci-fi and cyberpunk literary visionaries, VRDB.com has announced that it has developed virtual reality support for the web.
Premiering exclusively on VRDB.com, this new VR mode for the web will allow you to immerse yourself in your favourite websites without the need for any of the expensive, recently-launched new generation of VR headsets, such as the Oculus Rift and HTC Vive.
"We are finally able to deliver an immersive, stereoscopic 3D internet experience," says Scott Reismanis, founder of VRDB parent company DBolical Network. "As is the standard for VR, we will be rendering our webpages at a rate of at least 90 frames-per-second, which should all but eliminate undue motion sickness when scrolling both up and down."
VRDB.com's new VR support for the web shows that virtual reality isn't just for games. Your internet browsing experience will never be the same.
Try it on any website like Reddit or Google by dragging the bookmarklet above to your browser bookmark bar, then click the button to turn VR mode on.
After 8 years attending GDC, this one felt different, potentially a turning point for the industry with VR dominating the show. It's a new tech that many still haven't tried, and there are so many talking points to cover. Here is my roundup.
Just like social and mobile games before it, VR is sitting atop the hype phase. The potential is boundless, everyone is excited and the next 12 months will be telling once hardware starts shipping to consumers. Ignoring the price and long wait to get a headset, are you excited for VR once it becomes more accessible, or do you remain sceptical?
