Shiva Game Release Site, SEO-blog'ish - Coming this Summer.

All That Remains

Shiva Game Release Site, SEO-blog'ish - Coming this Summer.

Postby .eb » 2015-01-26 18:48

[ title Edited - ]

Just had this idea, literally moments ago..
An Idea for all of us Shiva people..to have a site that "Let's our work do the talking".

'If I make a clean Website/system where you can post your own stories about your Shiva games/apps/plugins and projects, would you use the site ? [HAS TO BE SHIVA MADE]

The idea is so we can have a long list of many pages of games added as created/or at marketing points.
We can have a game/project be the highlighted project of the month..etc. or even a couple or few, in a rotation banner..etc

I think this would be terrific as it would be a site to show off what each of us do with Shiva.
We can also have a page for sharing our own business/personal site links with images of our business(es) or personal logos, etc etc.

I think this will help us to gain extra recognition and exposure for our games and apps and the cool new things we do with Shiva!!

Anyhow..this thought of mine is only 10 minutes old now. So..maybe you have an idea to add, or an opinion to share about this ? Please do so..

"Let's allow our development work to do the talking in this new site".
AKA: let's show the world what We Shiva devs are making. This site should help us all grow our userbases and sales!!! ' With the added benefit of new users who may come along..since Shiva deserves the attention of new users.


Thoughts ? and Thank You for reading.

---
P.S.I will happily build this and host it for us. ;)

I am game!

Notes on how it could look:

Three views :

1) 12 Random Game showcase on entry, with link to game showcase page ( 1 year age limit to keep fresh things uppermost [updates count as refreshing age] )

2) Full listing of all games

3) Showcase page, simple template, user fills in Description, Screenshot w/optional Link to whatever

EDIT Unity showcase works pretty nice, take some cues from there

Will there be some quality control?

If it attracts gamers, sure why not, just post your devlogs there as well and mention something about the engine, free advertisment.
Shiva 2.0.

Another idea : that for symmetry the resources used per game could be of similar size constraints as what is wanted by the official shiva showcase : So that if the shiva guys want a game on the official showcase, the images and text would be ready to the correct specs, reducing the burden of creating different size screenshots.

I have moved this up the list of things to do. Summers' End, I assume.
This is basically a community-access blog for SEO marketing of our SHiva based Games/Apps/projects... for "nearing release WIPs" & "Releases" only.
ANY OF YOU who are Shiva licensees(paid), will have special privileges of use to post news, etc.

Site ads; clean, classy..fits site. Free.
- If you would like to have an ad placed into the site, you can simply contact me about it or write to me here.
- Shiva licensees can provide an ad to sell their things that are Shiva centric(think plugin,AImodel,etc..or advertise what you sell in the Shiva Store!).
I will provide image/flash/java file/size and more, after release. Ads from Shiva(HTML5), can work too, I suppose.(cool, eh ?)

@Felix; if you read this:
I have a Shiva ad space planned & I think I told you this before.
Either way.. I'll contact you when ready to check the site out/and discuss if you guys want the space(free of course).

@Karm, good idea. thx for that.

sum up:
I had plans some years back to make a resource site for Shiva *but it's obvious Shiva didn't need such a thing.
I think this idea works well. ;)

Update: I haven't forgot about this.
I haven't had the free time to make this or to give it the proper thought it deserves. I'd like to involve as many of you as possible in this so it meets/exceeds goals and purposes.
- All in due time fellas. ;)

I have a feeling ShiVa2 is gonna be quite popular, so it will get some good traffic.

If you want I can help out some when the time comes.

But yeah, chillax sounds good, all good things take time and much procrastination. :D
