Thread: How about a showcase?

  1. #1

    How about a showcase?

    The past few weeks I've spent time on GGE, GameDev, and PixelJoint to discover that one of my favorite features are the showcases that they contain. Its a bit more like years then weeks, but its become more noticeable in the past weeks. So, I was thinking, PGD should have some sort of showcase where we can upload or link screen shots and information about the games we are working on and the ones we have produced. People coming to the site see the title, but then find few links to games unless they search the posts.

    I think that if we put a games link at the top and then have a method to drill down (via categories and key words) it would be very useful. I know I'd post up what I've done here to get a bit more attention to it. We already have a good starting point on categories; genera list from this years compo, scriptable or not, moddable or not, engine and/or game.

    Hmm... I forgot to add no to the options, now I can't edit it. Take Doubt it as no.

    I have updated your post and removed Doubt it.

    Btw, there has been talk about making www.DelphiGamer.com a showcase site.

    How about a showcase?

    If DelphiGamer did become a showcase it would still be nice to have it in the menubar across the top. That way the link between the two make sense. And the DelphiGamer site should have a link in its menu with Forums that comes back over to PGD. At least thats my opinion. Thanks for fixing my goof

    PS: If you do decide to go that route with DG let me know. I would be happy to provide my services for free in the realm of UXP (User experience) and build research.

    Yes that would be the plan.

    How about a showcase?

    If DelphiGamer became a showcases site, wouldn't be a bad use of the domain, then it could really only be able to legitimately put up games made with Delphi. (Though I guess Delphi for PHP games might count too...)

    And all encompassing showcase could be made on PGD, but it would need a designer and/or maintainer as a minimum.

    How about a showcase?

    Yes, this is one of the things I like about gamedev.net. A link to the showcase should be visible on the front page of PGD, with a thumbnail of the most recent (or popular) screenshot being visible there, too. Just look at how gamedev does it, I think it's pretty neat (and simple).

    How about a showcase?

    I have been working on a plan for Delphigamer.com. And a Showcase is the main theme. I'm knocking up some designs at the moment.

    I don't think it would only be limited to delphi games, most free pscal game can be compiled under Delphi afterall.

    Here is an example of the concept I'm working on.

    http://www.infinitespace-online.net/DG/index.html

    The Image under the DG logo will probably change to be a collection of images from the games posted. (Aircraft, Tanks etc).

    You get the rough idea though.

    I was also planning to offer limited hosting for anyone registered here for a small fee, to help pay for the hosting of the main site.

    Subdomains would be avaialble e.g

    airblast.delphigamer.com
    iron-strike.delphigamer.com
    technomage.delphigamer.com

    But I could also host a limited number of actual domains as well. I haven't worked out prices yet, but it would not be that expensive (1-3 pounds a month depending on disk space required etc.)

    Dom and i had also discussed selling some of the games hosted though the showcase. To help the people writting them make some cash.

    Comments?

    BTW - I got the template from http://www.freewebsitetemplates.com.

    Hi Dean
    I really like the look of the site. Simple yet effective.
