Post news RSS Introducing ModDB And IndieDB’s New Editor

Greetings from the newest DBolical team member, Kralich/David, who will be managing the editorial and community management side of ModDB and IndieDB.

Posted by on


Hi all! My name’s David, and I’m the new Editor and Community Manager at DBolical, managing site content and the community for both ModDB.com and IndieDB.com.

If you’ve been using the site for some time like I have, you might already be familiar with some of my projects on ModDB. But today my role here changes, and I wanted to introduce myself and what I’m hoping to accomplish in my new role.

I’ve been working in the modding scene for around six years now. In that time I’ve worked on a few engines, primarily Source, and worked across modding communities from Steam Workshop to ModDB. My main project, Raising the Bar: Redux, has been kicking around on the site for a while now!

I’m very much an enthusiast and whilst I’ve not had as much experience working directly with indie games and developers, I’m thrilled to widen my knowledge and get involved across DBolical's diverse communities.

One of the first games I remember playing is Halo: Combat Evolved’s PC port. It’s been a real joy revisiting it in the Master Chief Collection and seeing all the awesome mods people have been making for it!

I'm a people person, even if I spend most of my time getting technical at my computer. I love interacting with talented individuals, learning about people’s experiences, and helping others see the value in themselves and their work. The modding and indie communities are remarkably talented groups of people that amaze me all the time! Now, being able to give back to both by helping their work flourish is an amazing opportunity I’m excited to take on.

I’m very familiar with Mod DB and the modding community as a whole, and look forward to learning how best to support great indie developers in their journey. I feel confident in stepping up to the mantle and galvanising this community into interacting with one another and always, always pursuing their passions. If you have ideas or suggestions on how to get the ball rolling, too, then please let me know at david@dbolical.com and/or message me! My DMs will always be open to talk, help out, and support you where I can.

Minecraft’s modding community captured magic in a bottle for me as a kid, and what the community manages to create still amazes me!

This role also includes me participating in the work undertaken by Modularity Games, a publishing label for games that looks to bring exposure to promising Indie games that have modding support. If you think you’ve got something awesome to show, get in touch, and maybe it’ll be something that fits the label well!

I’ve got so much planned to give back to the communities of both sites, and you’ll get to see these plans moving over the coming weeks and months. I’m a modder like all of you - someone who understands how difficult it can be to create the projects we create - and I’m here to support you in that journey, as I’ve been supported, too. I’m incredibly thankful to INtense! for the opportunity and Seamus.Editor for helping me out in these early days getting started, as I take over his responsibilities as he moves onto new opportunities away from DBolical.

You can get in touch with me over at my personal twitter Twitter.com, at my DBolical email david@dbolical.com, or on the sites at Kralich/David.

I’m so excited to get to know all of you, and get this community buzzing like never before. Thanks!

Honestly, I've never seen you before. This is a setting I'm not familiar with. And as we all know, anything new is to be feared and dreaded. :D

I hope that you will succeeded admirably in attaining your goals and that you'll have a flourishing career.

Congratulations! :)
