New site design! 2006-11-07 19:26:21 Reply

Well as some of you have noticed yesterday night, my site looks different. Much better actually, thanks to BoMtoons. He rocks. If you remember, we collaborated a few months ago on Aqua Slug and we plan to collaborate again in the future too. Keep an eye out for new stuff by us. I would love to get some suggestions and comments about the new layout of my site. What do you like, what do you dislike about it, any glitches or broken links?

Also, I have a few small games and a few large games in development right now too. Blockslide 2 is doing well. Many of you might remember the level making contest from a few months ago. Well, technically I'm still accepting entries. The game's engine is nearly done and I just have to make 110 more levels and put it all together before release. Still a while away from release though. Paths 2 and a game featuring my new mascot (the red gecko- thanks to bomtoons again) will be out hopefully within the next few weeks. So keep on the lookout for new stuff from me.

Also, be sure to check out Tom's post about username locking and voice your opinion.

Lastly, following the tradition of my previous posts, I feel obligated to provide an alpha for you all.

The new update to your site looks awesome. I noticed the heading now looks a lot more like the one on newgrounds.

i dont like the color palette much, its too two-toned, it could use an extra accent color i think.

Also I think that your mascot is being plastered in too many places, you should look into different ways of incorporating it rather than literally using the same image, if you look at newgrounds as an example, youll see a few instances of the ng tank but theres always slight variations to it and rarely do you see the the tank being used multiple times in the same manner on one screen. I think that you could try using maybe just the silouette in some instances or maybe a totally new redition of the lizard in other instances.

Looks better than what it was tho. I have no problem with the header resembling ng's its a very common layout choice

Never saw the old layout, but judging from all the posts over tha last few days, its alot better than what was originally put in place. Then again, they might all just be feet kissers, please dont hit me though.

But Then Again...

It looks cool, as you know I cant say whether its better or not, but the layour is cool, expecially the lizard type of thing as the logo, looks really flashy :)

Oh, and nice content on the site, its fun.

Too much of strong colors you are using plus lot of animations. I think you can make it to look more simple and pleasent. Goodluck!
