The Featured Section of JGO became a bit stale over the last year, so I single handedly decided to stir things up a bit. There should now be a much bigger influx to the featured section as to motivate you guys to go the extra mile, like adding some proper art and polishing things up. From now on, even promising WIPs will be eligible for the featured section.

It would be great to transform the featured section into a place where we show more and more games that would be commercially viable -- as in: selling, regardless of the numbers, ofcourse. We're not there yet, but hopefully changes like these can nudge people in the right direction.

Feedback is greatly appreciated.

I like the idea, it's true that the Featured section is somewhat under-populated. I'm fully willing to grade some games Smiley
I think at least a demo of the game should be required for eligibility to be moved into the Featured section, concept art doesn't make a game.

concept art doesn't make a game.
I didn't mean to imply that. I'm also not aware of any such entries in the featured section?

I'm not saying there are, it's just that some of the projects in WIP are just concept art, some of them highly posted in.

I agree that is feels like ages since a featured game.

And Jimmt is right. Many current WIP games look really nice but have no playable demo/test/app. Now I know that for games that want to be commercial you cannot just give away the game even if it is in the early stages but this is such a niche forum I wouldn't see too much of an issue. 

One day when I am no longer so lazy I will make a game and get it featured. One day.  Grin
