Rules for the Featured Games board
- Only moderators are allowed to create topics in this board
- To request your game to be featured, simply do so (once) in your existing Showcase thread.
- Moderators will move your game from the Showcase board to the Featured Games board, if they find the time and deem this board a good fit for your game.
Criteria to determine which games belong in Featured GamesNote
- Installation: +1 point if the game installs and uninstalls correctly (zip is fine)
- Stability: +1 point if the game doesn't crash ever
- Presentation: +1 point if the game is slickly presented
- Graphics: +1 point if the game has "good" graphics that suit the game
- Sound: +1 point if the game has "good" sound that suit the game
- Style: +1 point if the game's overall style is "good"
- Innovation: +1 point if the game is original or brings a great new original twist
- Fun Factor: +1 point if your judge enjoyed playing the game
- Completeness: +1 point if the game is complete enough that doesn't feel anything is missing
- Freebie: +1 point if you don't whine and you demand nothing of the mods (simply saying "can you rate my game please" is fine)
If you score a 7/10 or higher, then your game can
be moved to Featured Games. However, the content must be useable legally and morally (no copyrighted materials, objectionable content, etc.). Also, if a moderator has a good reason not listed to either move your game to Showcase or not move it, then that's just the way it is. Either way, when your game is rated you will have a new post in the topic which contains your scoring decision.
Please note that the scoring criteria can (and probably will) change at any time as we figure out what works best.
Also, most importantly, when a moderator makes a decision, that decision is made. If you do repeatedly contest it, you're likely to lose the "whining" point mentioned above, or if you complain enough we may just ignore your requests for a while.
Please remember that your moderators are trying to be as objective and fair as possible.
- The topics in the Featured Games board are ordered by 'publish date'.
- Creating more than one topic (in any of the game-boards) for your game is not allowed.
