I might have found a home in GameJolt. I dig this indie gaming portal. It’s a perfect place for the type of stuff I work on. I recently put up my new game, Specter Spelunker Shrinks, and I’ve been ecstatic with the feedback I’ve been getting. The game immediately got a bunch of attention.
I got to talk to lot of indie devs about my new release through the GameJolt chat. On the release day I casually replied to a “Hello”. He asked me what was up. I told him I had just put up my game on the site a few minutes ago. He told me he was going to give it a try. After checking out his profile I found out that he’s actually Aski from Tower of Heaven — one of my favorite indie platformers of last year. He came back and told me he really liked the game and gave it the highest rating on GameJolt. Only about 30 minutes into submitting my game I felt like my little experimental project was worth it.
Since then I’ve been getting a bunch of positive feedback from the community. They’ve got me hooked so I’ll be participating for sure in trying out some of the cool stuff on that portal and talking to more people about their stuff. The last few days have been a ton of fun.
