A little known fact is that our DBolical plans for ModDB, IndieDB and SlideDB originate from Australia. A sunburnt desert full of snakes, spiders and a strong love for mods and indie games! For the Sydneysiders visiting, are you attending EBGames 2015 Expo on this Thursday to Sunday? We are and might be able to find a chance to say hi, as we try out assorted games and some of those fancy VR gadgets.

It be great to talk to some visitors and pick your brain. We are quietly working away on ModDB/IndieDB v5 (still many months away!) and look forwarding to hearing everyones thoughts about what they like / dislike about the sites right now. Oh and we will also be at PAX in Melbourne next month for those attending it too.

With our annual award events closely approaching, we are looking for a new logo for this years event. As in the past we invite our community to help create an award winning new logo for use across this years events and promotional content. Here's what our community has created in the past:

Tips for a great logo

  • Keep it clean and crisp and simple
  • Use solid colors keep them as close to possible with the sites primary color theme (red for ModDB)
  • Clear easy to read font using capitals, ideally with the words "2015 ModDB Mod of the Year"

Creator of the winning logo will receive

  • Their work showcased to over 6 million+ visitors a month
  • 3 games of their choice from our #modlove promotion
  • Your logo engraved into a pocket watch
  • Bragging rights and a warm fuzzy feeling everytime they come online
  • A years subscription to our network (ad free viewing)

Willing entrants have 30 days to send their logos to The winner will also adapt their logo for IOTY and AOTY and supply high res layered images to claim their prize. We look forward to seeing your creations and unveiling them December 1st!

UPDATE: To help out, we have added a mediapack with assets to help you design and edit your logo

It is hard to believe that ModDB is 13 years old and IndieDB is nudging 7 years. We are as strong today as we have ever been serving up 35 million pages to our 4 million monthly users. It is a massive labour of love for us, helping so many mods and indie games on their way to success.

We want to keep doing this for a long time, and provide the best community on the web for developers to share what they are working on, whenever and however they want. We succeed when we help you reach a large audience, we have big plans and look forward to putting them into motion over the coming months and years.

Today marks an important day for us, as we welcome our new media representative Gamer Network. Gamer Network specialise in marketing for all games (especially those in the PC and indie space) where we find ourselves strongly positioned. They run Eurogamer, EGX and work with our friends over at Rock Paper Shotgun. We hope this partnership will allow us to display relevant and most importantly friendly ads - and reverse the trend towards adblock.

Let us know what you think, we believe that mods and indie games are only going to become more and more important, and by working with a company that understands their importance - it'll help us secure our financial future, remain independent and provide a better service all in one go.

We live and breathe mods, so to show our appreciation for you promoting your hard work and releases on site, we are now handing out a monthly thank you gift to a mod that gets headlined.

Our standards may be high, but its worth the extra attention

Headlines draw 70%+ more traffic than your standard news can manage and are hand picked to ensure quality content is always in-front of our 5 million monthly visitors. We're here to encourage you to maximize your promoting potential and in return have a chance at getting an awesome game from the #modlove collection.

Keep changing the game!

So the video player we were running on the site was about 10 versions old (not years!). This meant it's compatibility with HTML5, mobile etc was a little dubious at the best of times. Our new player is:

  • HTML5 native in modern browsers (should mean much fewer CPU / stability issues that flash causes)
  • Supports related videos (click the button below) which we will use to help everyone promote everyone
  • Switches between SD and HD fluidly
  • Check out the demo video we have grabbed from Switchcars:

We've also updated the image gallery system so that now when you click on the "view HD" link the gallery goes full screen. Browse any image gallery and hit that button to see this feature in action. More to come, hope you enjoy the changes and let us know if you encounter any problems!
