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.

Actually the countries are primarily non-english speaking + high traffic places.

So my guess is that Gamefront is unable to sell advertising in places like Russia, France, Japan etc and due to the high cost of providing bandwidth have decided to focus on the countries where they can.

Whilst it is frustrating - having run download servers ourselves it is expensive and not easy

INtense! May 7 2011, 7:56pm replied:

I totally agree with this, AAA games generally hit their targets if they are a good game, and get sales irrespective due to their marketing. However with indies, especially the smaller ones that only sell a small amount of copies, I feel piracy is understated since they depend on those sales entirely to keep going. And i'm talking a 99%+ piracy rate.

Seems there are a ton of people who want to try games out, especially the smaller indie games but aren't prepared to pay. I guess it would still be worse to have no one checking out your game.

INtense! Oct 30 2010, 2:07pm replied:

You have to remember that nothing is set in stone hence the "grey area".

i.e. tetris is a super basic game but it kicks ***.

So lack of content does not rule you out, some games don't need content to be good. However if you make a FPS with just 1 room, well that wouldn't be good enough.

The inverse is also true. You might make hundreds of levels, but if they are tedious, not fun then the extra content isn't going to help you qualify.

INtense! Jun 23 2010, 10:05am says:

Wow brilliant post, cannot believe I missed this (caught it in RPS comments). I've got to say you are spot on in your assessment here. e3 for a big company makes sense, since it is one time in the year that they are pretty much guaranteed that all press (and a good percentage of the gaming population) is tuning in.

It is also the reason why games fail... they don't focus on ROI, think they can throw a lot of money and sales will result. 10 years ago I wondered how the newspaper industry survived... I mean they sold ads at premium prices with 0 metrics (just x readership). Fast forward to today and the internet has metrics so you can see exactly who responds to your ads and ad prices have plummeted as a result, and newspapers all over the world are in trouble.

First you need to think about all the social services (twitter, world of mouth, facebook etc) and make sure the people you have convinced to pay, spread the word. Next, coverage on game sites is therefore great so keep pushing for that... Most important is coverage in places where people are purchasing (i.e. Steam, Desura etc). Once you have done all you can there, then start looking at paying for stuff.

Moral of the story you have to identify who is going to buy your game and get it in front of them. Do anything it takes, make friends, shameless plugs, get a speaker spot at a conference like GDC etc.

The full size image loads the uncompressed original, which can sometimes be a few megabytes.

And yeah originally the image gallery system was super fast and "ajaxed" but the problem is with the ajax approach, is that I decided I prefer to show comments with every image. i'll certainly welcome mockups and ways to improve it... as changing the template isn't that hard.

Just make sure you DO upload your images here, so when we do enhance everything your images benefit as well

so.... does this mean the witch is next? I'm not sure where I stand with content like this. On one hand I commend the creativity (even if i'm not a user or a fan) but I worry that the media will portray this in a bad way ala "hot coffee" and cause game makers pain as they are forced to tighten up the usage of their SDK. And thus hurt modding.

Not true at all - in fact we actually tried to change the sites name to GameCore (ran a beta for one month) but the idea what shot down by our community who thought that name was too generic. It was basically our attempt to show we are totally about getting to the "core of the game" and development, be it indies, mods, iphone, console etc.

In the past year we have actually been trying to beef up our representation of indies by attending GDC and talking to all devs there. So yeah I hope we can serve indies as well as we serve modders through a strong profile, promotion and everything else.
