I am thinking a long time on this idea and i think that JGO should have a JGO STORE like Origin for for developers to put their most prominent and accessible games.
What do you think about this idea?
(sorry for my bad english Sad )

I like the idea, but the problem of letting whoever post a bad game but charge a fortune comes to mind, and also people uploading malicious content instead of games..

Before the game be able to the public on JGO Store the admin has to check if it is or not a malicious content

Ah, ok. Then I think it would be a nice idea.

Online stores need a huge amount of traffic of the target audience.

We neither have the traffic, nor the audience.

Maybe the the audience can be just the JGO users

I don't believe ~20 users on at a given time qualifies as "huge amount of traffic".

Why would we need a special store anyway? Genuinely curious here.

This would also require maintenance + extra security. Riven has enough things to deal with.

In case it wasn't clear: it's a definite 'no' - for obvious reasons.

I don't think we need a store. If you want to sell your games, then go with Gamejolt or IndieDB or others.

So you want to take this:

http://www.java-gaming.org/boards/games/60/view.html

And format it more of a store front way - picture, description, click to play/download?

Cheers,

Kev

It would also be nice if the games in there would not only be there for a moment and then silently "disappear" to the next site. Maybe some kind of more genre than words-in-threads oriented search function...

Let's say I'd redesign the showcase board - that's not a page that gets a significant number of hits.

JGO is really a poor place to commercialize your project - we're here to help eachother develop it.

We don't have any customers here, we are a developers forum.

I'm surprised JGO isn't that highly populated. Java is a very popular language, and this is one of the first sites that come up when you ask a game development question.

http://lmgtfy.com/?q=how+to+make+a+game+in+java

It appears as one of the last few sites.

Java is quite popular, but not for gamedev, java gamedev would barely exist at all if it weren't for Android I suspect.

Really? I suppose most people would use c++ directX and/or OpenGL along with other game libraries.
