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.

Thanks to the horrifying game Five Nights at Freddy's which streamers and youtubers are going crazy posting reaction videos about, IndieDB had its biggest day ever. For those interested to see what kind of a spike it generated here are the last 20 days of absolute unique visitors:

Our previous best was 95,000 which occurred in January this year when we announced the 2013 Indie of the Year winner. Great to see IndieDB growing but it still has a long way to go to catch up to ModDB which does 200,000+ every day and it's best is 300,000+

Thanks to everyone who visited!

A problem found in this website, when I want to edit my review in my profile or in a page I posted, a following message appears to me:

'No user reviews have been posted matching the criteria provided. Check back later, perhaps someone will share their thoughts.'

I already seen some reviews posted but when I want to edit my review, the problem appears everytime.

Hello, Man!

How are you?

I have a big doubt about SWAT 4, is it possible to add any map to Quick Mission Maker in the game?

I know it is, but I really can't find a way, I tried to edit SWAT.INT but it was fail..

Can you give me any hint or help about this?

Thanks you!
