I think it's a great idea and an even greater opportunity for indie developers to get more recognition, but I just haven't checked it out yet.
Hopefully it doesn't succumb to the same fate as AddonDB :P

I didn't even know there was a indieDB let alone an addonDB.

I think we need to be able to use our ModDB account on IndieDB. Until now, I've gone to IndieDB a few times and just left because I didn't want to fuss with a new account. Call me lazy, but little thinks like that can make all the difference.

You can use your moddb account!

Moddb needs a link to indieDB!(or I just can't find it)

I'll stick with Moddb. I find it quite pointless when you can simply use ModdDb and get all the action instead of being limited to indie games.

I checked it out and it's pretty nice to be honest but I'll stick with ModDB since you have to make a new account for IndieDB and can't use the same from here to log in!

I'm way more addicted to commercial games (damn). So, I'll stick to ModDB.
However - I will never ignore indies.

Amez Jul 10 2010 says:

The problem is that indie games are still on ModDB, which is fine but what is the point of IndieDB then? Are you going to keep it all integrated or segregate so that mods stay on ModDB and indie games stay on IndieDB?

I don't like the options in this poll. It's either "mods > indie", "indie > mods" or "No opinion". Where's the "It's awesome! Indie games rule!!" option? :)

I'll just stick to ModDB. Don't really see a point since indie games are on ModDB. But it does have a nice search. ModDB needs that.

Dragonlord Jul 10 2010 says:

An option is missing: being an indie but still using ModDB. I really don't see why one should use this fork there. It's the same database just filtered for indie content. Everything you post on ModDB (indie wise) shows up there too. So why extra work and moving if there is not a single gain in it? Nobody (neither Henley nor INtense!) could give me (us) a "real" reason why one (an indie) is better off using IndieDB instead of ModDB.

AJ_Quick Jul 10 2010 replied:

As much as I appreciate the *thought* behind IndieDB, I tend to agree with Dragonlord here.

There's no real reason to use indie db at the moment, since it's just a stripped down version of moddb. People want to see *all* of what's available (mods and indies), so why would they choose a site that hides the mod content?

If at some point in the future indiedb can offer something more (both for developers and gamers) It might be able to separate itself from moddb. But at the moment it feels pretty redundant

Henley Jul 10 2010 replied:

Because its a site designed to cater to indies... That and we have plenty of expansions in mind, like we are tossing up the idea of hosting web based games on the profiles who release, so for example playing flash or unity web games in the indie profile. Nothing like that will be on ModDB as there is no need for it. It may be barebones atm but it will be a different site later down the road.

Noesis_Interactive Jul 14 2010 replied:

I think maybe the main difference will be that you'll be able to buy games through IndieDB but not through ModDB? (seems like they need to be separate sites since you can sell an indie game but not a mod). So, in theory, an indie project might choose IndieDB over ModDB so that they can sell their game through the site. I could be wrong about this though. :)

I like the look of IndieDB, I hope ModDB will be updated to look like that. I dont play very much indie games, so i have no reason to visit that site. I can read indie game news also here when I want to read them.

Both ModDB and IndieDB are great, but seeing as ModDB does everything that IndieDB does, I'll stick with ModDB.

IndieDB is really nice and gets the indie games more recognition but to make it more useful you need to remove all the indie titles and features from ModDB and keep both sites strictly for their own thing.

SinKing Jul 13 2010 says:

Don't see the point in Indie-DB, except maybe for selling certain features, in the future. Moddb is my site for everything, no need to expand it into something less useful. You create more confusion and those sites will never be as popular as the one and only Moddb.

Remember what problems you had when you wanted to rename Moddb? I think it could well take AddonDb and IndieDb into the site structure without messing it up. It would be cool, if you could switch between either site from Moddb (home) directly.

There's no negative option on the poll. And since everything that is on indiedb gets posted to moddb, I'll probably never give indiedb any attention.

PierreOfTheFrench Jul 13 2010 says:

I visit both, the problem is a lot of news is shown on both so it is a bit annoying to be checking both sites for maybe 1 post thats on one and not the other. I do like the look of it though, I think separating them is okay but getting them both at one source didn't feel overwhelming. Just my thoughts :)

TheDyllionaire Jul 14 2010 says:

I really don't see a purpose to it.
It's only really a limited form of ModDB with a shrunken audience.
I see no reason why we should split the community. By creating more than one website that people have to check out to find great games and add-ons, it almost guarantees that you'll have people missing out on some of the great pieces of work out there!
Isn't the purpose of a database like this to be a one stop list of EVERYTHING?

GamerWolfOps Jul 14 2010 says:

I am linking it both, indie will be becoming larger and wider in the years ahead, why?
simple there are more people who want to make there own game (indie games) rather then making then a mod, even thought i started out as a moddb gamer.

I went from moddb gamer and want to switch to a indie gamer, lets look at the brighter picture there are great indie games to look forward.

Just merge IndieDB into ModDB and be done with it. It's basically doing that already, with news posts at least.
