Topic: Technical Support / Game screen size clipped

My game that I just uploaded is clipped. I have the size at 600 * 450, Which is what I always set it as for testing. The clipping is only on kongregate, web build works fine when sized bigger, or when used anywhere but kongregate. http://www.kongregate.com/games/The_Ryan/killer-into-the-deep

They had it but removed it because it was used by a very small subset of users. Homepage space is very valuable and it needs to be optimized.

Where you referring to random game button, or top weekly games on front page?

Great Idea to help new and upcoming developers that do not have much resources or coverage.

How about on the front page we have a section for the top weekly games. Usually when a noob developer submits a game, even if it is a great game, does not have much initial coverage or advertisement. That noobs new game will do pretty well for the first few days with a fair amount of plays and decent+ ratings, just from the new games page(if it is a quality game, which quite a bit of the time it is). Then what usually happens is that these games get buried under major commercial games or skilled indy developers in the following days to never be seen again. We are loosing lots of potential great games because of this. You may be thinking, “But mr. proffesor dr. The_Ryan, this new section on the front page will influence voters to only vote on the new games that are doing well and screwing over the other quality games that are barely hiding behind them”. Well not to fear, I have a solution to that. In this section the icons for these games could be similar to the “browse top games by category” section icons. They are the small ones that show 5 in their little section. In the new top weekly games section we could have 10 maybe 20 shown off at once. And I know, that did not solve the problem a whole lot, but one of these will. Option 1) Have it updated every Saturday. The “weekly top game contests” run every Saturday to Friday, so having these games updated on Saturday from the week before will have their week of glory and fame without interfering with the contest. Option 2) Have it updated every Wednesday or Thursday. The “weekly top game contests” run every Saturday to Friday, so having these games updated on Wednesday or Thursday will allow the top certain amount of games, that essentially made it through the “qualifiers” have their moment in the spotlight during the ending of the contest. Both of those options have their ups and downs and there are probably more options to explore. The reason I want this to happen is to get a more diversified game selection while weeding out the games that actually aren’t to great. Often on kongregate you will see the same great games over and over again, this can lead to boredom and puts off the kong mood. I would be very pleased to see this implemented, as will other game developers and gamers.

Topic: General Gaming / The "What was that game called?" Thread

I remember playing a game a long time ago, probably about 8 or more years ago. I really don’t remember much but I will describe as much as possible. Its a 3d graphics first person game and takes place in some snowy place, maybe Antarctica. I just remember one part a short while through where some boulders fall around you like an avalanche. The beginning area had water in it and I think there was a downed boat in the water. It is some type of survival game. I’m pretty sure it is called something along the lines on Atlantis or Antarctica. It is a pc game.
