I've just set up a little indie game review site. If you've got any games you'd like to see reviewed, previewed or just publicised please let me know.

Hmm, seems like you're doing quite a lot these days. Don't push yourself too hard now :V

The site layout looks good. The scoring is a bit convoluted though imho. 2 points per category, fine, but you've included decimals so it's a 100 point scoring system in disguise. And really, scoring system these days are a farce and completely arbitrary for the most part.

Rather go with something simpler imo. Like 3 stars per category and then rounding the final number down to 0 or 5 Natural stars, no halves.

More ways for indie games to get noticed is always pleasant so.. good stuff.

Thanks for the feedback guys. I guess I've kinda woken up and remember what makes me happy - and thats games, anything related to it Smiley

Re: Scoring, agreed - but whatever system you use is going to be subject to opinion. The important thing to me was to be up front and clear about how the scoring is being done rather than games being submitted and then getting confused when they didn't get a rocking score.
