Would there be any interest from others in Arduboy being added to the site as gaming platform? I got one recently and noticed it and any games for it I’ve searched are absent from the site.
If they are games and they exist, I don’t see why not. Just because I’m not that up on Arduboy, are the games unique to the system? If they are I think it should be a platform on Grouvee. Flagging @peter on this one to see what he thinks.
Interesting. I don’t know anything about this platform, but it seems like it’s a legit unique platform with unique games on it. I guess the real question would be can anyone give me an argument against including something like this?
I don’t think there is a reasonable argument against, not at least from a backlog and collector perspective. If people own this and play games on this platform, I think it’s a valid thing to index in the database.
I don’t know of any Arduboy games that have made the leap to being on other platforms? The idea is that there’s no barrier to entry for making games for it outside of being able to actually make the game. The site shows some of the more fleshed out/popular titles. https://arduboy.com/
I picked one up recently to try and keep myself motivated to learn programming, especially C++, and one of the “flagship” titles seems pretty neat so far so I wanted to see if it was on here.
The only issue I can see is with anyone being able to release games for it a potential flood of low effort garbage clogging up the site, but I don’t think it’s popular enough for that and the same case could be made for pretty much any digital games marketplace at this point. If @peter wants to add it as a platform I can chip away at adding some of the bigger titles here and there. Was looking at getting more active on here again anyways.
I totally expect we won’t index every game, simply because that would be too daunting a task. But if you are aware of a master list of titles that can get it started, I think that’s worthwhile.
I would start with the titles big enough to be shown on the Arduboy site or included on the newer model that can hold multiple games at once. I think interest here will be limited enough that that should be more than enough.
Once the Arduboy is added as a system I’ll start chipping away and adding a few each day.
I have added Arduboy as a platform. I also fixed the name of the hentai game.
