Guidelines for posting in this board

8 posts in this topic

The game showcase forum can be used to let other developers know about your game that you created, or are currently about to create.

If you are posting a not yet finished game, please prefix the title with something like "WIP" to let people know about it.

 

For example: [WIP] My first puzzle game

 

You should include the following information in your post:

 

  • One (or more) screenshot/s (at best about 800x600 px - remember that very big big pictures may take a long time to load)
  • A short description of your game
  • The link to the game (obvious, huh?)
  • Maybe a link to the games website with more details, or a blog

 

Feel free to make the description longer and ask for specific feedback there to start a discussion with the folks here that goes beyond "Looks cool" or "very nice game".

 

I recommend you to add your screenshot(s) as direct attachments to your post, so you don't need to host them anywhere else where they might get lost.

After you added a attachment (live upload is possible while you are writing your post), you have a little "Add to post"-button at the right side which enables you to display attached images directly inside the post.

 

When you have included the information I listed above into your post, chances are very high that rich will tweet about your post with his twitter account that has a few thousand followers already, so stick to that list if you want promotion ;)

 

If you have more questions, just post it here in this thread.

 

I even have digged out a good example of how a post in this board should look like.

 

And now, have fun building HTML5 games! :D

 

greetings,

Chris

Phew, always depends on the gif. Those things tend to get very big in size very quickly.

If you want to make a longer gameplay demonstration, it might be better to screen-record it and upload it on youtube.

Is HTML5 games only allowed? I notice someone posted a Android JAVA game and no it wasn't HTML5 wrapped in cocoon/phonegap.

I have a first prototype of a game that is actually old procedural PHP/MySQL/Javascript and old HTML4 with just a dash of 5 and nothing deprecated.

It should probably be rewritten from scratch after any playtest mods are done.

Is this a suitable item - it was designed for a 1280x720 or better display but can use browser zoom controls to adjust somewhat.

I think mentioning the library (if any) in the thread tags would be a good idea.

It would make it easier to find ideas and techniques for your wip game.

@01271 thats a good idea, but, this part of the forum is primarily about the game, so long as its eligible (html5) then should we enforce here that people speak about their technical choices? I kinda feel this part of the board is about the game, not about whether its Phaser, create, Babylon, React etc etc

Sure, some discussions might go that way as many people are interested in the technical side of stuff and many posters do indeed use this area as a mini-dev blog, I wonder if there would be any uptake on creating a new section for devlogs for games being worked on?
