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.

That will never happen. Ads can be worthwhile if done right, the minute you overdo them they go from been valuable to downright annoying. We only want quality not quantity. On mod profiles we typically only run one ad on the sidebar, sometimes two.

Oh and as a member we instantly show you less ads, our thanks for participating in the community. No ads if you use Desura.

Well ModDB / IndieDB / Desura are all linked so it isn't *super* easy to do. Best way is to browse the game profile mods section, to view only mods for that game...

it is exactly as protektor said below. first we work with native games, then we consider wine games, then we consider things like mods and other content.

rest assured we shall be supporting many of the free and awesome linux games, Warsow for example: Desura.com

Absolutely, just getting a game to release is an amazing achievement and the complexity of todays games does make them hard to mod. So I can understand that in-house they probably have tools that are not designed to be used externally (optimized, pretty etc) and making them accessible to modders would be costly and challenging.

But with such a legacy blazed by past BF games (and their mods), it is a shame to see mods totally dismissed. Crytek for example is taking a while, but they are slowly bringing their tools to modders and indie developers. I don't think it is fair however to "bash EA / Dice" as I believe this decision is based much more than on them trying to monetize DLC and if they had unlimited time / resources mod tools would be made.

It is only for the last few minutes, but very handy for tracking an explosion of visitors. For example we ran a witcher competition a month ago, but last week it just exploded in popularity. If you goto the stats log: Moddb.com

You can see that the competition was mentioned on the official witcher blog, hence the visitors.

Getting forked would be much worse.

These guys also made ARES: Desura.com

Their artist is incredible... especially when you consider development only begun a few months ago!

Just to clarify, I spoke with Potteh and decided that removing that post and his access to the site was the best course of action.

He will be developing his future games / mods via other sites and will not be returning here.

So lets put this issue to bed, no more posts!

well they are widely sucessful and basically known by every man, woman and child on the planet. however they invented a rather basic game. whereas minecraft really innovated, I think our audience will be a little biased to minecraft as a result!

it isn't actually a platformer, it is a puzzle game which is reverse-tower defense like. Give it a try, it is addictive. The original is only $0.99: Desura.com

we planned it from the start, and it literally didn't take long at all to get desura cross-compiling. getting it actually functional and working out the quirks is the hard bit as Kame rightfully points out
