So one of my new years resolutions in 2011, was to run a development blog for the site + Desura. So here I am...

To begin allow me to introduce myself, I'm Scott Reismanis founder of ModDB.com / IndieDB.com and Desura.com. For 8 years now i've been working on these sites (it all began because I found it hard to find organized game databases back in the day, with images, videos, downloads that work) and i've enjoyed every minute of it.
Day to day I fill my time replying to emails, doing all the boring business stuff and attempting to make time to do what I enjoy... coding the website you are now on. As a developer I've always found it hard to communicate what i'm working on, as I prefer to just work but my new years resolution was to get the community more involved in the direction of the site - so if you want to hear more from me, welcome to my semi-regular behind the scenes site blog. Besides with Desura now launched we have tons of ideas we want to get started on - and figure it'll be interesting to argue about discuss them with you.
Finally, I really pride myself on just how far this site has come, mostly because we help awesome game developers and modders get the attention they deserve. These days you can work super hard, but unless you are a PR pro (few are) getting noticed and mentioned among the deluge of information on other sites is super hard. So i'm glad we make it slightly easier, and enjoy reading virtually every post on this site. So keep the content coming and before I start sharing our 2011 plans (in the next post) let me know if you want to hear more, and what YOU want us to do in 2011.
What i'm playing right now: As a kid I never really played Metroid / Megaman / Mech type games, so i'm making up for lost time by playing A.R.E.S. Extinction Agenda ... so many explosions!
