Not a fan (14 votes)
Seems ok, but I really wonder if it was needed? As said, ModDB already covered all of it and Desura could handle the larger needs of Indie developers it seemed to me.
Overal, I like the green style, though slightly hurtfull to the eye.
Well, I look forward to see what change this will bring to ModDB life.
Remember that you can continue to browse ModDB as ModDB features all indie content as well. IndieDB is for those primarily interested in indie games (which is a growing number of people) given that indies can now be found on mobile phones, consoles and PCs!
Couldn't there be a filter on ModDB though?
Though I think like is said below, it's a good thing no AAA games appear as most viewed, so the Indie games can get some attention... but only for everyone that doesn't care about mods(GASP) and only comes here.
For everyone else, is there a reason to visit both ModDB and IndieDB? Since you'll still get the indie news on ModDB.
The problem is you keep adding filters and more filters and it becomes way too complicated for normal users. This is much easier, and if you want all content just continue to visit ModDB.com
Good point I guess, people don't like handling all those filters, so will there be a ModModDB with only mods? Ah ignore it, all the complications of filters or new site combinations make my head spin :)
Keep up the good work anyway!
greens the ****!
I think the big value in IndieDB is that it brings out Indie developers to the front page better. On ModDB its hard to find who is Indie, who is mod and who is actual game profiles page created by fans. This site really brings it all into the open.
Just signed in on IndieDB for the first time and I dont know, if it really is needed ;-)
But all in all it will be great for indie developers and that is the aim, right ?
Way ive understood it is that all of the content on indie db is also on mod db?
but here there are no mods or AAA, just a spotlight on indies. am i right?
Great idea anyway
This is awesome! I like the fact that modDB and indieDB remain interconnected, the new design is a good change too.
Great new scheme. I hope to see it ported over to ModDB. I also wonder if the site is really necessary, but I guess it doesn't hurt since they share the same back-end.
I like it for the simple reason that GTA San Andreas is not the "most viewed game"
Definitely a fan, good getting updates on the indie stuff on the front page.
Looks good. Hopefully it'll start picking up traction soon!
FYI, the stats pages have some weird looking characters on the graphs title.
Yes its awesome, its nice to make a website specified for indie games :D, +1 Huge fan
This looks very good, I hope they update ModDBs visual style to look like this.
I'm new here, and I've never heard of ModDB. So IndieDB is a promising site for people like us.
I'm not a modder, so it's good to have content filtered that would interest us.
I really don't like the neon green. It is exceptionally distracting
It is needed. This can help promote indie games and probably help them sell better as well. Indie games are kind of "buried" on moddb's site. So it's time for them to stand out.
Love it! I've had a ModDB account for ages but never uploaded anything - I'm not really into modding and the indie games seemed to get buried very quickly over there, so I never bothered. Problem solved!
Well its cool, but yeah its not needed.
looooooove it! now I can stalk even better!
This may already have been answered, but will the content we add here also be automatically added to ModDB as well? And will we see any comments made on our game profile both here and on ModDB?
I like the design anyway! :)
Nice! The community is its biggest asset. Especially ForK... look at that cowbell go! :D
I've browsed ModDB in the past, but only with a passing interest, and I was very shy about posting because I'm not a modder (only an indie dev). Definitely glad to see IndieDB as a separate entity, but connected enough that those who want to can still traverse between the two with ease.
I quite love the new green feel - add's a new feel and makes things more interesting and fresh. As for the site's need? I agree with most people up above saying indie games have been 'buried' under it all on Moddb. IndieDB has not only opened up a new world for most users. But it has inspired me to start working on my first indie game as opposed to a Mod traditionally.
Thank you IndieDB!
I think it's a good move.
It not only gives our regular members an opportunity to learn a great deal more about exploring the Indie scene, but can serve to allow them to utilize this knowledge to maybe take a motivational step forward to consider developing their own ideas where before they may not have done so.
Overall I like it - although those with custom CSS coding for their page may need to edit it, as it doesn't work in the same way. For example, Overgrowth's page.
Still - I'm loving it. Nice job guys. :)
i'd really like to see both indie and mods on 1 website, but ok.
well, that's what moddb does? all indiedb content is also on moddb.
Hell, I'll switch to this website just for the color scheme.
Is there any likelyhood that the green will get toned down? this high contrast scheme distracts from my content.
I think as long as there's a clear separation of purpose between Indie DB and Mod DB, it will work well.
I strongly believe that both sites need separate forums - there seems to be far too much noise being made by modders chattering about frivolous tweaks to existing IP. (I'm not suggesting ALL modders are like this of course, just that this kind seems to be flooding many areas of the forums.)
It slightly puts me off trying to engage in thoughtful dialogue or debate about the more meaningful aspects of development.
i really like it, i'm working on a indie game my self
Perfect, nothing more to say!
I really like it, it's perfect for Indie Developers to get some attention.
I hate that most groups are only for one site or the other.....
Definitely the first, it's quite useful and keeps indies up in the eyes of the gaming world! Even I get my news through this, rockpapershotgun and DIYgamer.
