Taking a look at a lot of indie games, the think I notice that quite a number of them are pretty poor quality.  Which I think is unfortunate because I know the average Internet user judges the site, and therefore the game in probably less than 15 seconds.  So, a good game with a poor site, could really hurt chances of success.

 

I am wondering are there companies out there that specialize in creating websites for Indies?  Should this be a service that some companies should consider offering indies?

 

There are thousands of companies out there offering web development services and company/product presentation websites are a pretty common service offered.

 

Yes, I realize that, but why do so many indies not have good sites?  A lot of web dev have niches.  I'm wondering if there are any that specialize in gaming sites.

 

 

Many indies have poor websites because they are unwilling or unable pay an external developer to make a good website for them, high quality custom work is always expensive. (indie game developers tend to have far better websites than non tech companies of similar size)
