I am the founder of DBolical and creator of ModDB, IndieDB and SlideDB. My aim is to make it easier for gamers to find great games/mods no matter their stage of development. And more importantly give game/mod developers a place to share their work and grow their fanbase - without being dependent on press/editors gatekeeping the important news sites. If you have any ideas or suggestions, hit me up I am always available to talk with the community.

Thanks to the horrifying game Five Nights at Freddy's which streamers and youtubers are going crazy posting reaction videos about, IndieDB had its biggest day ever. For those interested to see what kind of a spike it generated here are the last 20 days of absolute unique visitors:


Our previous best was 95,000 which occurred in January this year when we announced the 2013 Indie of the Year winner. Great to see IndieDB growing but it still has a long way to go to catch up to ModDB which does 200,000+ every day and it's best is 300,000+

Thanks to everyone who visited!

A problem found in this website, when I want to edit my review in my profile or in a page I posted, a following message appears to me:

'No user reviews have been posted matching the criteria provided. Check back later, perhaps someone will share their thoughts.'

I already seen some reviews posted but when I want to edit my review, the problem appears everytime.

Great article @GIBiz about the challenges indies face in a world where topcharts are the only way to get attention T.co

Dec 16 2014, 9:50pm

@Kizzycocoa @Desura @Henl3y really? i'll pass this onto the desura devs - thanks for reporting!

Dec 16 2014, 7:19pm

@humanheadgames thanks for the birthday card - btw we setup your profile on @indiedb T.co

Dec 16 2014, 5:13pm

@upurtweet HTTPS it is on the roadmap. Challenge is migrating all assets + 3rd party content to HTTPS also, we expect it to take a while

Dec 10 2014, 1:38pm

@upurtweet the iframe embed URL or the video itself?

Dec 10 2014, 1:29pm

@FoltynD cheers for the shoutout, I've retweeted it on @ModDB

Dec 9 2014, 1:26pm

@ian_baverstock @chilledmouse congratulations - looking forward to seeing whats up!

Dec 9 2014, 1:24pm

So I dont normally make a habit of talking about ads, but the preroll for EXODUS that I just saw on @indiedb was awsm T.co

Dec 7 2014, 2:00am

Also it is worth clarifying that the top chart T.co is just hourly popularity and doesn't = player votes

Dec 4 2014, 1:37am

So which apps T.co have you voted for so far in the 2014 App of the Year awards?
