You may have noticed that we recently added indiedb.com to the DBolical Network. It was a big step for us, our first new site in over 6 years and our first site to utilize a modern responsive mobile friendly design. It is also our first site where we are mixing community content (as we do on ModDB.com and IndieDB.com) with content and coverage written by our editor Daniel Hindes. We chose to do this because with so much occurring right now in VR (across hardware, software, games and entertainment), we want to make sure we don't miss the key stories.
Expect to see us cross-promote Indie DB on our network for a while, as we work on growing its community. Any help is welcome (see our job ad), if you know developers working on VR or AR content - let them know about our humble community. We succeed when we help creators share their work, and look forward to doing this once consumer VR hits shelves.
We also wrapped up our Mod and Indie of the Year awards. You may have seen the gorgeous ads running on the site showcasing the winners. It was our most successful event with over 200,000 voters and millions of visitors. Thanks again to everyone who participated, it provides great motivation for us to keep making our network better.
Speaking of which, you might be wondering what is next for us. Well with the help of Erayser, we have begun exploring modernizing the design of ModDB and IndieDB. This doesn't mean the layout will change, but it will mean certain elements are tweaked and the site is made responsive. We shall also be working on better supporting cosmetic smaller mods, because it seems a lot of the creations today fit into these categories. And we shall also work on AJAX'in more of the site so that posting comments, browsing / searching feels a lot nicer than it presently does. Got ideas for us, share them in the comments. Oh and I was recently interviewed by Tim on GoGameBundle, go check it out.
