October 15th, 2012Slide DB Launched
Melbourne - October 15, 2012 - After months of stealth development the creators of IndieDB.com, ModDB.com and Desura.com have announced the launch of SlideDB.com a developer driven mobile games news site.
With so much noise and content in the mobile gaming space, it is hard for developers of new IP to reach fans. When asked what can be done, Scott Reismanis the Founder of SlideDB commented "At the moment mobile developers are mostly at the mercy of app-store top charts and editor curated blogs, both of which allow little control. We hope to change this by putting the creators in control and providing another way of connecting with potential fans via SlideDB."
In the mobile space there needs to be more ways to reach players interested in the game you've built without being dependent on paid ads, reviews and befriending the right people. "With ModDB.com and IndieDB.com reaching over 200,000+ readers daily, we've already had great success helping independent developers showcase their work. And with so many mobile games all competing for the few "top chart slots" available - it makes sense for us to expand our network." stated Scott Reismanis. Developers interested in sharing what they are creating, and players interested in discovering up and coming mobile games encouraged to start interacting via SlideDB today.
July 30th, 2012ModDB Celebrates 10 years
Melbourne - July 30, 2012 - After launching way back in June 2002 when Altavista was still the no.1 search engine, Google was just an up-and-comer and Twitter / Facebook didn't even exist, today we celebrate ModDB.com 10th year online.
Since then we've survived all manner of doomsday scenarios such as the 2006 "PC gaming is dying" catastrophe, when "closed-off non-modding friendly consoles" were set to take over. We've survived the great DLC avalanche of 2010 when previously mod-strong games like Call of Duty and Diablo announced you'll have to buy updates from them. Despite this modding is as strong as it has ever been, with millions of modders continuing to share their creations on ModDB.
Scott Reismanis, the Founder of ModDB, commented "whether game creators encourage it or not, people love to tweak and change their favourite games. In the end we all win, give a modder complete creative freedom and the result is the creation of timeless classics such as Counter-Strike, DOTA and more recently DayZ which millions have played." Check out our Hall of Fame for some of our favorites.
All in all, over 17,000 mods have been added to ModDB (with nearly 33% released) and we look forward to playing many more over the next decade. Fans can read our 10 year summary and a detailed history of the site complete with stats and old screenshots as we celebrate this milestone.
