IndieCity holds many great avenues for all indie developers to get their hard work seen by a large audience and now it has got even better. The fine team over at IndieCity have been working tirelessly on feedback from you, the community and have been looking at new and exciting ways to integrate some great new ideas into their site to better improve the site for the developers as well as the community at large. The changes being put in place this week will be as follows:
The Ability to set your own domain: Now developers have even better ways to direct the indie community to their pages directly. The format will be as follows http://<developer /company name>.indiecity.com, which will make the process of getting people to where they want to be quickly and easily.
Customisable developers pages: IndieCity have created a whole new level of customizability now to allow developers to really impart much more of their unique personality onto their pages. With pages now listing the essential company info and games there is now a whole new level of customization, allowing complete control over the text, background graphic and body colours.
A pure agent scenario (UK dev’s): It will now be possible for the UK developers to use IndieCity as a pure agent. This means that you will be responsible for paying your own VAT essentially meaning if you are below the income threshold you will be tax exempt.
New app integration: In IndieCity’s philosophy of supporting all things indie the benevolent folks have decided that helping everyone in the indie market is the best way to go forward. After having many requests from developers who wanted to provide their own game dev tools on the site, IndieCity listened and will be accepting app submissions.
Reduction of IndieCity banding on developer pages: They believe that the developer pages should be about the developers first and foremost IndieCity is going to be reducing the impact of their branding on developer pages putting firmly the developers at on the centre stage.
These changing are by no means the only development that IndieCity will be working on, as they continue to develop the site to better tailor it towards the indie market at large. Some of the features that will be implemented over the coming weeks will be more advanced analytics, blogging and a comments and reviews system.
You should start to see these changes taking place later on today, as IndieCity begins rolling out these very interesting changes, to help create a better than ever community driven indie game space for all.
