If you have you might want to check out http://www.gamealchemy.com . It's a site that lists games made by amateurs.

It's hard to get your own game noticed by the masses as an amateur game developer. That is why we decided to build a platform where amateur game developers and game enthusiasts can meet.
To this end we offer programmers the possibility to list their games in our online directory through an easy to use web interface.

There are a lot of benefits for you the game developer:
1) Your game will get exposure
2) Your game gets rated by the people that play it; this will give you an idea where you stand compared to other developers.
3) We run a competition called Game of the month. All listed games are automatically entered. So you could win this and have something to brag about! Smile
4) You can't beat the price, getting listed on the site is free.

lol
This and the other benefits are probably not true.
So far there are only two games there, probably because few people even know the site exists, and noone ever goes there. Nice try Wink but it looks like few people care Sad

This is an advertisement indeed

1) The guy as only 1 post - this one
2) He posted on several other boards too, and probably many more

I'm trying to get a site up for amateur game programmers.
I do this because I love playing games and to help hobbist coders!

Posting your game on the site won't hurt..Even if my project fails, you'll only lost a couple of minutes.

What game an amature can create? Only simple one. Tetris, packman, loadrunner, alienattac, ... and all their derivatives. I think we`re not going to see there strategy like warcraft or fps (at least!) like wolf3d.

On the web exist lots of sites dedicated to gamedev, with messageboards, huge databases of code, and of course games itself. Also exists tons of sites like http://www.download-free-games.com

IMO amature with his (hers) 'tetris-what-ever' has nothing to promote - there are tons of such stuff already. Who needs one more tetris? Only amature. Only for his (hers) educative purpose.

Well nobody is forcing you to post your games on the site...
Some people just like to have the things they created acctually be played Razz
And an open source project made by a whole group of amateurs can be quiet good and be very fun to play!

Do you really think that one more tetris is really claimed on the web?
I`ll say it again: amateur gamadev is interesting only for gamedev amateurs, education is a good thing anyway.

how about a game I am not proud of? I had to code this think as a final project in highschool, but did everything in a rush and got a 4 (2-6 scale).

Hmmm... I`ve got a working piece of code for 'strategy', but I`m not proud of it, I had to choose something for final project. Made on C for DOS in mode13h, pathfinding and enemykilling. Got 9 of 10 and buried it.

Well if you aren't proud of it, it's prolly not fun for others to look at either? Smile

It's all up to you tho...

Well, it's a simple but challenging puzzle i wrote in actionscript.
I feel kinda proud for my complete 17 level faithfull remake of the original DOS game, wich people had played hundreds of thousands times in many web sites.

Try to solve a few levels by yourself, before watch the walkthrough video on youtube.
