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.

Every year I make it a point to fly from Australia to San Francisco for the Game Developers Conference. It's an awesome experience and one I highly recommend all developers try and do, should you have the means. But it can also be rather overwhelming at times, surrounded by talented and successful developers everywhere. This years conference was a bit of a rollercoaster of emotions for me. I'm busy working on various ideas and decided to pitch them at GDC. The pitches went well, and I look forward to sharing them with the community in a few months as they get closer to release.

Meeting modders at GDC

(i'm in the middle, Fandore on the left and GeneralJist on the right)


But amongst all of the chaos, I wanted to highlight meeting two modders that brought a massive smile to my face and really made the week worthwhile. Amongst all of the chaos, business deals and competition, I met the creators of a much loved C&C mod Tiberium Secrets Matthew and Eric (GeneralJist and Fandore). Together they reminded me why I started ModDB 15 years ago, and why I continue to work so damn hard on this site and community. While everyone else was at GDC trying to make money and do whatever it takes to succeed, these modders were there purely to learn and for the love of the game. I tip my hat off to you both, your dedication to your craft and many others like you has pushed our industry so far forward, and I look forward to many more years of following your work on the site. Thanks for making my week.

Hello, I'm a film student, and recently I'm writing a script about VR gaming. So my instructor asked me to do a research on VR gamers, which lead me to here. I would love to do a short interview with you about VR gaming, if you would like to. Or if you can refer me to someone you knew, who is also a VR gamer, that'll be perfect, too. I'm sorry if this is bothering you. But please let me know what do you think. Lots of thanks!!!
