Update 1.2 - More speed improvements, new way to submit games and a space for games in development. Check our new update and what is to come in the future!
We're not gonna lie, we are what you can call a Google whore. Since the almighty american giant decides on who lives and who dies, we have had no other choice but to make the website faster than it already was. For those who care here are couple things we improved:
And other time consuming tweaks that no one really cares about. Anyway, it's faster now! Hope you can feel the difference. If not, then blame your connection!
Here are some other little things that have been changed:
Some of you may have already noticed, there is a new Submit Game item on the menu.
We use to have a single contact form for every type of inquiries including for developers who would like their game to appear on Steamy Gamer.
So we created a special form with all the information we need developers to provide us in order to have their game published on our platform the fastest way possible. This also includes an Update Game page for when the games are releasing new versions, meaning change logs will now appear at the bottom of the game page when requested.
We hope this will help developers to ease the process for submitting their game, which have proven to be quite time consuming in the past.
We have been focusing on completed games mostly since the website was released because posting new games and articles is a time consuming process for our small team (as well as improving the website and pushing updates like this one). However now that developers have a better way to submit their game we thought it was time to open our doors to games in-development which also need visibility and support from the community. To submit a game in development, same process as for the others, just fill the Submit Game form.
And for more visibility we will add a new section on the homepage for games in-development under the current "new games" section. We are also adding a "Games in development" page under the item "Games" in the menu. It is hidden for now but will appear as soon as we have a decent amount of games in development to show.
And because no one likes to bounce from a website to another to download a game, we have added a section for download links. So you can expect to see games with download links more often in the future. They will be easy to spot since the main "Play" button will read "Download" when the option is available.
I think we've mentioned it already, but we are working on a rating system in order to give the games the recognition they deserve instead of giving a single review based on our experience. It just makes more sense.
This one also was mentioned in the past, but it feels quite lonely without comments and if possible we'd like to give some review option so your comments can have more impact. Your opinion matters!
