THE FEATURED GAME THREAD

Posts

IMO the "featured game" should be used to showcase the best games the community has produced; it should be used to try to make us look good. It shouldn't also be a tool for giving lesser-known titles extra recognition since we already have the means to do that on the front page!

Can't we do both? Just as long as the lesser-known game is good enough to merit the recognition?

Having said that, sometimes things are popular for a reason and deserve a spot as a Featured Game. Now, I haven't played Desert Nightmare yet, but if it holds up, then I think it's fine for it to be both a popular game and a featured game.
If by chance it does both then great; I just don't think that popularity should be taken into consideration.

I remember playing (or at least watching a complete playthrough) of Desert Nightmare a while back. It's well-made, though my feelings toward it was pretty neutral. It wasn't the best game I've ever played, but it's not bad at all.

It’s your actions.. not your strength, that would lead you to victory.

While I have no objection to Desert Nightmare, it's already one of the most downloaded games on the site. Is that something we care about?
It's not something I care about.

Nor should we really, I mean if a game is good, there is a better than average chance it will also be popular.

Though back to suggestions there is always Promise, though I think that might work better as a hidden gem game, do we have a thread for suggesting those?

Though one I think we've overlooked is Suzy and freedom. It's horrific and chilling and unnerving and I think fits the pre-hallows mood quite well.

This game is likely to be featured sometime:

Brave Hero Yuusha

Yeah, it's currently in the dev spot, though, so it'll have to wait for the future.

+1 on this. I've always thought featured games are meant to be games that are/have been the talk of the town (in a good way, of course).

That being said, I still support Desert Nightmare, though Suzy and Freedom is a potential candidate as well.

P.S. I'm the one who first mentioned Desert Nightmare :p http://rpgmaker.net/forums/topics/8799/?post=651217#post651217

Need suggestions? The Book of True Will, Free Spirits, Last Minute Gift, Tess, The Farming One, The Age of Deliverance, Suzy and freedom, Subject, Rust and blood?

I'd back up The Book of True Will most of all.

Emmych and I would both like to un-nominate Free Spirits for now! We've been on the front page in some form or another (New & Notable, RMN TV, IGMC Top ten...) for quite some time.

That's my un-backing up

I'd really like to see Free Spirits featured when you guys finish the additional content though.

Yeah, agreed.
I should really play September's Featured Game and review it.
