    so... Hey indiexpors!

    Oh, I have to update this topic! So.... let's start!

    - New News Area!
    Now you can see just two areas: Most Popular & Most Recent.
    In the top you can see Recently Updated, clicking on the images you will go directly to the game's News Area (with the latest updates)

    - Suggested Users
    Now in the bottom of the User Pages, you can see 3 Users with their rank, to discover new players!

    - New Stats
    Added new Stats in your Game Page!

    - Total Stats
    Do you have more than one game? Watch the Your Games area to see the stats of all your games uploaded just in one place!

    Watching movies, playing games, reading book. Spoilers are everywhere.

    For this reason, we added a new way to write comments on indiexpo.
    Now adding || this || you can write what do you want, hidding the text and to make the world safe for other players.

    Just this? Oh, no baby.
    Here it is another small feature. The Online Status.
    In the Profile page (yours or another user), you can see if he is online or not!
    Very easy.

    We improved the design of the website, changing also the Subscribe Button!
    Here it is the new one:

    A new feature is the Subscribers List! Clicking on the subscribers number (near the players) you can see who is following a game. Like on instagram. Very easy

    We are also improving the recommended algorithm in the home page, trying to suggest also the popular games of your favourite genre and of your language (observing your previous download and comments)

    There are also two new interesting games that have the Score System of indiexpo!

    Endless Combat Dungeon (for the retrogaming lovers)

    Overlord's New Mansion (platform)

    If you are logged, you can send your score in the online leaderboard automatically! Very easy and fast!
    Try to be the BEST!

    and we can continue! ... you might have noticed new icons in the Notification area, that should make visualization more immediate.

    In the homepage, we added a new mini-section, showing three random games that have recently gotten over 1000 players (still in testing stage, we're trying to see if people like it and use it).

    Trending Games. By visiting the pages of games uploaded in the latest 30 days, you might have noticed 'Trending Games' written in some of them- indicating that that game is receiving a lot of attention when compared to other games uploaded in that timeframe.

    Thanks to the help from the author of Knightin'+, the website has been entirely translated to Ukrainian. The translation, previously only 78% done, is now complete! And the new visits from Eastern Europe are already increasing!

    Is it a real community? Oh, yes! We are publishing on indiexpo blog, several reviews of Game Developers for (new) Indie Devs with interesting projects!
    The first one was about the pixel art, made by the pixel artist of Fantastico Studio, and the second one (posted few days ago) was about an adventure game by an artist of Ars Goetia Studio.

    It's also started a new Easter Egg hunt! If you will play this game, Rookie Hero, and you will be the first to find the Easter Egg, you will win 500 Gems!
    Remember to stay logged.

    Other features added!

    - Share Button
    We added a button that allows to share your game much more easily and rapidly on a lot of social networks to every game page. It even comes with a QR code to print or scan, to share with anyone around you!

    - More automatic checks during uploads
    More automatic checks were added when a game developer tryes to create a new game page. Many kinds of checks were added, the most important ones put in place to avoid spam. Now, if a game developer tryes to make a page with an external download link, the site will automatically check if there are other games with the same external link. Furthermore, every user will be able to create a maximum of two game pages per day.

    - The navigation bar has been improved
    While before there were both a vertical and an horizontal navigation bar, now it’s all been included in the vertical one, which will allow you to move between different areas much more easily and rapidly.

    - Added slovakian and persian support
    Two new languages were added, once again thanks to the help of the indiexpo community! Adding persian is a remarkable milestone, as it makes indiexpo one of the first game hosting websites completely translated in an arabic language! We’re still fixing the site architecture relative to this new language (we gotta flip everything right to left)!

    - Something new everyday!
    The most recent edit, instead, was adding an area to the HomePage that will change every day. One day it will show “Games that have recently gotten more than 1000 players”, the next day it will show “The most recently followed games”, and the day after “The most relevant games that have no comments”, etc.

    - More small things
    New search filters in Advanced Search, new FAQ area, new User Titles depending on your level, bugs fixed regarding double notifications.

    A new game has been published exclusively on indiexpo, Tony & Clyde (a low-poly adventure from a brasilian team, with a great color range and a perfect design), which was the first game featured on our latest video, the “Best of August”!

    We introduced Verified Accounts, the Share button

    we translated indiexpo into two new languages: Filipino and Thai!

    With the help of several users from the indiexpo's community we translated the latest words and now also the younger developers and gamers, from Thailand and Philippines, can use the website easly!

    It's also redesigned two areas of indiexpo, Subscriptions and Your Games (for game developers)

    Now you can see the latest news and updates of the followed games and to left a comment faster!

    Another new feature is about the Comments Area of the Game Pages. Now you can tag another user when you left a comment and he/she will receive a notification about it! And added a new anti-spam system!
    And there are other small features like the possibility (finally) to change your password and email in Settings Area and to see the new UI of the Level Area!

    And more has coming!

    Stay tuned and play indies!

    And it is out our new video "rewind" with the best indie games uploaded during this 2021!

    Here you can find the games' list

    It was not the best way to start the new year...
    When things go well, no one ever thinks that it could all go wrong...

    2021 had just ended, with the team on Discord, we were discussing how this year we had obtained more subscribers and views than the previous year. There were talks of new features being added, improvements being made and how they can impact the site in 2022.

    Everything was going smoothly, and we did not suspect that the unexpected was just around the corner. The first days of January the site began to have problems. The server appeared unreachable, and the site is inaccessible. We start the "standard maneuvers" and after a couple of postponements, everything was back to working.

    Two days pass and the site is down again. No changes had recently been applied to Indiexpo, which made it difficult to understand what was going wrong. However, this made us understand that the problem was at the server level and not at the code level.

    The "standard maneuvers" didn't help this time, so we were lucky enough to have the site programmer come to the rescue. He finds a strange connection between the site and the server. He doesn't quite understand what's going on, but he finds a way to recalibrate some settings and the site is back up and running.

    But after a day the site is down again, and the error seems even more serious.

    Chat started to think that the site is closing. We received emails and reports of users who were unable to access the site for days. Talks on social media had everyone guessing to what was happening on the website.

    We contacted the service that sold us the server. They reassured us by saying that the problem does not depend on them, and that they do not detect problems, but the site is still down. This time it cannot stay up for a few minutes without crashing, and the programmer no longer knows how to address the faults. This was seemingly impossible.

    The service staff who sold us the server propose a hardware replacement. Components that should improve the performance will be presented and replaced.

    We accepted and waited anxiously.

    Then the news...

    We are contacted again, and we are told that during the replacement of the various components, the hard drive with all the games and data appeared to be damaged.

    We immediately check the backup, and we realize that it is not up to date at all and the material that we could lose would be substantial. So understandably, it resulted in the closure of the site.

    The programmer explains that if the hard drive still turns, maybe we will be able to recover some files. If it does not turn, we should go to a specialized centre to try to recover the data. However, the latter option would be very expensive, risky, and extremely difficult.

    It was agreed that the work would be carried out in two attempts.

    The first attempt is made.

    It fails...

    This 12-year long work could all end. The beginning of 2022 can mark the end of a site that is now part of our daily life.

    We begin to contact a specialized centre (with exorbitant costs) and we begin to think if we should start over (impossible) or change the site entirely. We were totally disoriented and helpless.

    The second attempt begins.

    Success! All games and data are recovered!

    The site is put back online, the backup restored and enhanced.

    indiexpo still lives!

    Thanks guys for being close and supporting us!

    We are back to stay!

    Let's do it!

    We didn't think the filter would work so well!

    Throughout November and December we reintroduced a feature (redesigned): filters per games.

    We strive to work towards site simplifications, and creating a minimalist design.

    We included features to promote smoother user operations. This resulted with positive user feedback.

    This is incredible!
    We will continue to work and improve this function!

    Other recent news:
    - Fixed a bug that would send you an email notification about your comments
    - added the Greek language to the site
    - translated the email notifications

    Hi guys! Recently another games-platform started to mail intimidations, to paralyze our services, supposing several violations.

    Luckily we found very good (senior) partners that suggested us what to do. We didn't suspended our website and those "intimidations" were retired.

    This 2022 is very crazy!

    But probably you are here for the updates...let's start!

    Latest Updates:

    - you will see your own (last) comment on top in the game-pages commented;

    (so you can follow the discussion easily and fastly)

    - improved the design of the pages for wide screens;

    (We fixed yesterday ther last graphic-bugs, tell us if you see something strange)

    - Added Greek language;

    (But still not Greek games)

    - Added new cards when you level up.

    But the biggest update will come this summer (I hope). It needs a lot of tests but it will make the platform more competitive for players!

    Continue to follow and support our social pages! We need your help!

    Video Rewind 2022 ->

    As the end of 2022 approaches, we reflect on a year that started off with a bang but ultimately proved to be a year of transition and experimentation. Despite the challenges we faced, we were able to support several talented developers and even saw the emergence of new, amazing teams, like Red Mountain and their hit game, The Crown of Wu.

    Throughout the year, our main focus was on maintaining stability and looking towards the future. And while not everything went smoothly, we learned valuable lessons and made progress towards our goals.

    We are grateful to all of the amazing developers who have supported this project. Yor contributions have helped to improve the gaming experience for so many people, and we look forward to continuing to work with you as we tackle the challenges of 2023.
    Here's to a new year filled with exciting gaming adventures!

    indiexpo hat im Jahr 2022 im Vergleich zum Vorjahr eine Reduktion von etwa 20% bei Nutzern und neuen Nutzern gesehen. Das bedeutet, dass im Jahr 2022 weniger Menschen die Website besucht oder sich für sie angemeldet haben als im Jahr 2021. Ein möglicher Grund für diese Reduktion könnte der Fakt sein, dass die COVID-19-Pandemie im Jahr 2021 zu Lockdowns in vielen Teilen der Welt geführt hat, was dazu geführt haben könnte, dass mehr Menschen zu Hause geblieben sind und mehr Zeit online verbracht haben.
    Trotz dieser Reduktion stieg die Zahl der Sitzungen jedoch um 20%, wodurch es im Jahr 2022 mehr Besuche auf der Website gab als im Vorjahr.

    Dies deutet darauf hin, dass, obwohl die Anzahl der Nutzer und neuen Nutzer möglicherweise gesunken ist, jene, die die Website besucht haben, häufiger zurückgekehrt sind.
    Die durchschnittliche Dauer von Sitzungen stieg um 26%, was bedeutet, dass Nutzer mehr Zeit auf der Website während jeder Sitzung verbracht haben. Dies könnte ein Zeichen dafür sein, dass Nutzer die Indie-Spiele interessant fanden und beschlossen, mehr Zeit damit zu verbringen, sie zu durchsuchen. Die Absprungrate, also der Prozentsatz der Nutzer, die die Website besuchen und dann ohne den Besuch weiterer Spiele verlassen, sank um 11%. Dies bedeutet, dass Nutzer mehr Interesse an der Website zeigten und mehr Spiele durchsuchten, bevor sie sie verließen.
    Der Direktverkehr, also die Anzahl der Nutzer, die die Website-Adresse direkt in ihren Browser eingeben, stieg um 39%. Dies bedeutet, dass es einen Anstieg der Nutzer gab, die die Website durch direkte Eingabe der Adresse besucht haben, wahrscheinlich, weil sie bereits über die Website Bescheid wussten oder von ihr gehört hatten. Der Referral-Traffic, also die Anzahl der Nutzer, die die Website über einen Link auf einer anderen Website erreicht haben, stieg um 43%. Dies bedeutet, dass es einen Anstieg der Nutzer gab, die die Website über Links auf anderen Websites entdeckt haben.

    Bei der Analyse der geografischen Lage der Spieler der Indiexpo-Website wurde festgestellt, dass der Traffic aus China um 28% zurückging, während der Traffic aus Amerika, Indien, Deutschland und Frankreich um 12%, 53%, 112% und 15% zunahm, respectively. Diese Daten zeigen die Verbreitung der Website in verschiedene Teile der Welt!
    Zusätzlich stieg die Anzahl der online gespielten Spiele im Jahr 2022 im Vergleich zu 2021 um 24% und auch die heruntergeladenen Spiele stiegen im Jahr 2022 um 35%!
    Bei der Analyse des von der Indiexpo-Website erworbenen Traffic ist es wichtig, die Quellen zu erwähnen, aus denen die meisten Nutzer stammen, und wie sich diese Quellen im Laufe der beiden Jahre verändert haben. Zum Beispiel gibt es einen Anstieg von Direkt- und Referral-Traffic, während der organische Such- und Social-Network-Traffic zurückgegangen ist. Durch die Bereitstellung von detaillierteren und vollständigeren Informationen über die Situation der Indiexpo-Website und ihre Leistung im Laufe der Zeit ist es möglich, ein besseres Verständnis für den Fortschritt der Website zu erlangen und mögliche Verbesserungsbereiche zu identifizieren.
    In Bezug auf spezifische Spiele sehen wir, dass Spiele wie Kingdom of Pixels 2D MOBA, Towerland, die während des Jahres 2022 hochgeladen wurden, im Laufe dieses Jahres am meisten gespielt wurden. Auch Il Viaggio del Saggio, ein Rpg Maker-Spiel, das nur auf Italienisch erhältlich ist, hat viele Spieler gewonnen!

    Insgesamt zeigen die Daten für die Indiexpo-Website im Jahr 2022 eine Mischung aus positiven und negativen Trends im Vergleich zum Vorjahr. Während es einen Rückgang bei der Anzahl der Nutzer und neuen Nutzer und einen Rückgang bei organischem Such- und Social-Network-Traffic gab, gab es auch Zunahmen bei der Anzahl der Sitzungen, Spiele pro Sitzung, der durchschnittlichen Sitzungsdauer und dem Direkt- und Referral-Traffic.

    Indem alle diese Faktoren berücksichtigt werden und mögliche externe Faktoren wie die COVID-19-Pandemie in Betracht gezogen werden, ist es möglich, ein umfassenderes Bild der Leistung der Website zu erhalten und Wachstum und Verbesserungsmöglichkeiten zu identifizieren!

    Während dieses ersten Semesters haben wir neben ein paar Dingen, die wir verbessert haben (wie die erweiterte Suche, die jetzt ein besseres Design und einen neuen Filter für die Suche nach Spielen nach Jahr hat), endlich eine neue wichtige Funktion veröffentlicht, auf die wir uns freuen: Quests!

    Was sind die Quests? Wie funktionieren sie?
    Wir haben den Events-Bereich revolutioniert!

    Du kannst zur Event-Seite gehen, die zugewiesene Mission "akzeptieren" (die sein kann, ein Objekt zu "finden", "so lange wie möglich zu überleben", "eine bestimmte Anzahl von Punkten zu erreichen", etc.), dann das Spiel spielen und 100 Edelsteine als Belohnung erhalten!

    Warum diese neue Funktion?
    Viele Websites ähnlich wie unsere organisieren oft Events/Jams für Entwickler. Wir wollten diesen Weg nicht gehen, der bereits von anderen weit verbreitet genutzt wird (auch weil am Ende ein Wettbewerb sehr gut auf einem Forum, auf Social Media oder anderswo organisiert werden kann). Wir wollten uns mehr auf Spiele und Spieler konzentrieren.

    Wie kann man Missionen erstellen, die mit den eigenen Spielen verbunden sind?
    Das Wesentliche ist, dass das Spiel online spielbar ist. Dann musst du nur das Personal kontaktieren (per E-Mail oder auf Discord), um das Punktesystem zu aktivieren und verbundene Missionen zu erstellen!

    Ein effektiveres Benachrichtigungssystem wurde noch nicht integriert, aber jeden Tag verfeinern und verbessern wir diese Funktion!

    Versuche, einige Missionen zu gewinnen, und lass uns wissen, was du denkst!

    Wir sind sicher, dass die Spieler diese neue Spielerfahrung lieben werden, bei der sie lustige Herausforderungen annehmen und Edelsteinpreise gewinnen können!

    Unser Rückblick-Video mit den besten Spielen ist online, wir können es kaum erwarten, dass ihr es euch anseht!

    Es war ein aufregendes Jahr, und wir freuen uns darauf, im Januar alles zu reflektieren, mit einer Analyse dessen, was getan wurde, und was getan werden wird, um die Website zu verbessern.
    Vielen Dank an alle, die diese Community so besonders gemacht haben, von einer kleinen Vereinigung italienischer Foren zu etwas Großartigem!
    Danke, danke, danke!
    Und frohe Weihnachten an alle

    Hallo zusammen, wir freuen uns, unseren Plan für 2024 mit euch zu teilen und einige der Initiativen zu skizzieren, die wir bereits gestartet haben. Dieses Jahr möchte ich mich statt auf den Vergleich der Statistiken von 2022 und 2023 auf die Zukunft und die operative Exzellenz konzentrieren, die uns erwartet.

    Unsere unbestreitbare Priorität für 2024 ist Geschwindigkeit. Wir müssen sicherstellen, dass unsere Website allen unseren Benutzern eine reibungslose und reaktionsfähige Erfahrung bietet.

    Zu diesem Zweck arbeiten wir an mehreren Initiativen:

    - Verbesserung der Benutzerfreundlichkeit der Website auf mobilen Geräten (einschließlich der Einführung einer App)
    - Erstellung eines schnelleren und intuitiveren Kontaktbereichs für unser Personal (bereits in Betrieb)
    - Implementierung eines neuen Abschnitts auf der Startseite, der sich ausschließlich Online-Spielen widmet und für mobile Geräte optimiert ist.
    - Einführung neuer Medaillen zur Belohnung von Spielen und Spielern, die bedeutende Meilensteine erreichen.

    Zusätzlich werden wir Spieler weiterhin aktiv durch die Schaffung von Herausforderungen und die Einführung neuer exklusiver Spiele einbinden, immer mit dem Ziel, ihnen ein unvergleichliches Spielerlebnis zu bieten.

    Wir sind zuversichtlich, was die Zukunft für uns bereithält, und dankbar, eine so talentierte und engagierte Community zu haben! Zusammen werden wir Großes erreichen!
