IndieMendable (earlier it was called GameMaker Spiral) is a place where you can upload games and get feedback on them. It's made to look like the old sandbox.yoyogames.com. You can upload your own games and search on the old YoYo website via the WayBack Machine and a database.

To do
  • Posting reviews.
  • Searching moderators.

First of all, let me say, nice job so far! The theme looks way better than the original, and I like how you managed to make it look so great without going all flat HTML5 look like so many other people do. I am not surprised that someone would bring back the sandbox as it was very popular and it was stupid that YYG ever took it down to begin with.

I'm not very good at naming things, but just some ideas:

- GameMaker Bank
- GameMaker Blob
- GameMaker Paradise
- Game Maker's Paradise
- Retro Sandbox

I think it was Leonardo da Vinci who once said something along the lines of "If you build the robots, they will make games." or something to that effect.

Thanks, I'm glad you like it! :) That naming blog post was an old thing. In the end I decided to go with IndieMendable. (Though Game Maker Paradise sounds nice too!) As in mending YYG's indie community.

Also, who signed up as 'admin'? xD

I don't think it was me, but I may sign up as "GameMaker" which I did on ENIGMA's forum once :P

You should look into asking the authors of stuff on the Sandbox if you can reupload their games, there's an archive of almost every game here: http://www.archiveteam.org/index.php?title=GameMaker_Sandbox
Also, you need to specify sizes for the text in the boxes or it might look different on other people's browsers (which it does on mine).

What boxes? And isn't that archive not already what I'm using? :)

EDIT: I don't upload the archive games because they're already in their archive if that's what you mean.

Maybe it's because you don't use Google services? I get the Open Sans font from their CDN:

Code: [Select]
/*
 * Open Sans font.
 */
@font-face {
font-family: 'Open Sans';
font-style: normal;
font-weight: 400;
src: local('Open Sans'), local('OpenSans'), url(http://fonts.gstatic.com/s/opensans/v10/cJZKeOuBrn4kERxqtaUH3T8E0i7KZn-EPnyo3HZu7kw.woff) format('woff');
}

EDIT: I just changed that so it should be working if that was the problem... If it's still not working, what browser are you using?

It's also strange that your search field is dark, don't you have an idea why my page is rendering so weird?

Yes, it's fixed now. It was because I've got Privacy Badger which blocks Google services to prevent tracking.

Added Markdown functionality to profile description, and also added link to this site in the links bar at the top of the site. :)

I just translated major sections of the website to Dutch! Any translators out there willing to help with other languages? I'm using gettext/Poedit format for translations.

Dutch version

Check out http://gamemaker.mooo.com/locale/nl_NL.utf8/LC_MESSAGES/messages.po for example.

That's strange. It works for me with snow turned on, even though it was actually a feature I made for last christmas. :D

What browser are you using, I tested it in Chrome and Firefox.
