Blender-Games

blender-gamesIt's surprising that nobody thought of this before: Blender-Games aims to offer all completed Blender games, complete with graphics and videos. It's very nicely designed and already has a lot of great content.

Here at blender-games we are posting most, if not all, completed blender games, so that you don't have to search through Google and BlenderArtist.org to find them (or any other site)! You can talk all about the games in the forums, upload your own screenshots and videos, and post your own games!

We are looking to build a community, so if you are interested, please stop by and register for free and upload your content, post on forums, post free low poly downloads, post games (read the guide!) and help shape this new site.

    Awesome site!
    (Link works for me if you haven't noticed it.)

    This reminds me somewhat of open moon games.
    Hopefully this site will become the game janitor I suggested Open Source games could use:

    Very nice artwork, it looks quite professional and polished.

    Although, the creators where talking about the problem of unpolished, unfinished and/or abandoned games (demos) by indie devs.

    Those games actually need a non-profit organization with a janitor role.

    Once a developer has finished a game, he or she could let it be maintained,(stored) at Freezing Moon.

    Open Moon could then keep the game and/or any other material that the author wishes.

    Maybe even the author could give the right to Freezing Moon to continue maintenaince themselve with the people Freezing Moon picks.
    Or the author could let Freezing Moon continue development and even set some goals.

    Freezing Moon could act as a janitor, not doing actual work but provide a clear communication point for people who have made games and people who like to build upon earlier efforts.

    If a developer doesn't want to continue his/her game in development, he/she could give it to Freezing Moon, maybe with some goals that he/she would like to be met.
    Can't provide for those features them selves (because of e.g. time constraints, knowledge about certain techniques, software's, other…)

    Of course the people of Freezing Moon team could also help projects themselves, if they are interested of course.
    Or even work with some volunteers that are interested in the same project.
    Projects could be completely maintained by volunteers.
    The author could even register his/her game on Open Moon to get help of volunteers while working on his/her project maintaining the possibility to set goals for the project and realize their vision. (That seems fair enough. The original author keeps the right to decide what happends.)

    If there are trouble's between visions, then the consensus should be to fork for avoiding arguing between creators. (Arguing could result in serious hurt for the game.)
    Or if possible to split the project in two parts, one vision-specific one not vision-specific. (e.g. same rendering engine is ok but people want different content. The content could be split in two and the same game engine be used.)

    Wouldn't this be a good idea?
    A janitor for abandoned games.
    A communication point for creators continue upon each others work.

  3. I get an Access Blocked message!? "SITEguard has blocked an attempt to access a malicious Web site (blender-games.webs.com)"

    huh?

    Strange... Many websites with blender content have been removed because of giving out malware. Even though they are not. Maybe .blend files kill computers?
