Greetings Indie Community / Developers,

I have started a new gaming website called fjoome.com which was made due to my frustration with finding free online games in one place, I know there are websites that have lists like this but mostly they are just big blocks of text or endless pages of "free games".

I wanted to make it easy to find games by category, TAGs and computer requirements.

That aside, I am also a big fan of Indie games and the Indie Community, my latest favourite indie game is Minecraft :)

I wanted to find more Indie games to play, kind of like on Xbox arcade, but was surprised to find almost no decent Indie PC games list, or marketplace.

So I created a new "Indie Games Market" on fjoome.com, I am currently waiting for more Indie developers to submit their games to me, So I came here to tell you about it so you can list yours! Once I have enough submissions I will open the listings to the public.

This is all free of charge of course!

In each game listing the developer can add information, videos, Images, a direct purchase link and website link.

You can add your game here: http://www.fjoome.com/v2/indie-market/submit-your-game

I look forward to hearing from you!

Hi fjoome & the gamedev community!
I'm relativily new in the game developing community. I found this post (and through this post this community) via google. Some friends and I are currently developing a game. We tried to do something really new. But I won't tell what it is till it's finished! ;) But we are now allready looking how we could distribute it. It seems that there is no really good established marketplace for indie games, is there? fjoome seems really promising. Just what we are looking for. So thanks for building fjoome! We will defenately post our game on your site! btw, is it also possible to post the game in beta phase and then have it replaced when it matures?
Thank you and a great day to everybody!

Hi Anton,

Thanks for your input!

Once you submit your game and we add it to the marketplace you can edit your entry with new purchase links or logos or whatever info you want whenever you want.

Just send an email to [indiemarket[at]fjoome.com] and submit your changes.

You will receive all relevant information when you submit your games in the follow up emails from us.

The developer will be in complete control over his listing on the marketplace.

Regarding the Beta phase, I have already created relevant tags and image masks that will clearly indicate games are currently in Beta phase. Once you have completed your beta phase simply send us a mail with the new info and we will update your market listing.

If you have any more questions feel free to ask!

Anton_hh: How comes you put extra affords into registering up and stating your question here (apart from the praisery) instead of just directly punchin an email to infoMADfjoome.com?

Just curious ..

I guess it was because like he said he hadn't found this community before so registered and replied, which is in my favor because it bumps this thread :)

2 other users have emailed me directly because of this thread too so either form of communication is ok for me :)

@fjoome: Thanks! good to know!

@phresnel: I took the effort to register here to be part of the community. It seems like a good place to be when starting like us to make games. (Even though it might just stay a hobby.) And whats wrong with praising? fjoome was the first site I found what did what I wanted. I could have written an email, but I also wanted to know from other users if there is another site where we could also market our game. If you know any, please tell me!
Thank you,
Anton

So is it for PC games only?
I have an iPad game that I wouldn't mind having some free advertisement for.

Something is slightly wrong with the font on the menus when viewed in Chrome - slightly too small, blurry.

Don't panic and pardon if already too late.

These days phorums receive a ton of spam. I run a forum and a wiki myself, which are currently a bit underused, but already receive a ton of spammage, plus I am also part of the "spam hunters group" of ompf.org/forum, so I am bit sensible, and doing the manual turing test often helps a lot.

Nothing personal. But it is sometimes hard to differentiate users from spammers from astroturfers. See also http://ompf.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=1&t=1899 .

Yeah I work with chrome and have had that problem since I started working on it. I am still trying to work out what it is. Any one have any ideas?

Regarding the Ipad game, do people advertise ipad games on the net? I thought it was all through the app-store which, is something I am kind of trying to replicate but for indie games.

wtf, what did I do wrong? Why all the suspicion? I really don't get it...

So if it makes you happy, Lenny:

I was looking for quite some time on google, so I do not remember the excact searchterm. It might have been these (or a combination of these) searchterms:

"indie games"
distribution
market
marketing
selling

and I was probably searching on the german version of google (google.de)

So good luck in recreating my way to this topic

Really nothing personal, but a first-poster that registered right behind some advertiser just to praise the advertised product is often enough an indicator for astroturfing.

Of course it is not necessarily true in the specific case, but in the general case it is.

Pardon to anyone who got accused innocently.

Obvious astroturfing is obvious. Even if it's not astroturfing...
And the post IS suspicious. Even if it's real.

Hell, I even saw fake youtube accounts for astroturfing by commenting on a video (and the guy who did that is here on gamedev...).

And I guess everyone here knows "Marek knows" too...

So if we are wrong, then sorry for that.

gamejolt looks good. Never found it before while using google.

I will be offering something similar for sure.

We will also implement advertising for the developers. All games listed on fjoome will have the chance of being advertised by us on the web, free of charge.

This will be dependant on the popularity or if we think it should be featured.

A revenue sharing model will also be implemented albeit slightly different to gamejolt. More info on that later.

Competition is good and I am glad you showed me that site :)

By the way: 4 devs have signed on because of this thread so thanks for that.

and don't hate on Anton, he really has nothing to do with me or fjoome. He has sent me some info on his upcoming game and I would stick around and hear about it when he is ready to share :) It sounds good.
