- So, what is OSXIA?
It’s a project developed by Irone (OSXIA team): a website/software to distribute video games (using the BGE).
But that’s not all, you can create your project to get:
a dedicated page (something like http://osxia.org/GameName)
a dedicated forum (http://osxia.org/GameName/forum)
team management & recruitment (you can associate a team to your project)
feedback from users (support options)
users will get a notification if an update comes out.
social options (like private messages, evaluating games, playing with friends online, etc.)
How does this work?
For an end user:
- Download all the games you want and use all the social fonctionalities.
For a developer:
- Register (who are you? coder, modelisator, animator, sound designer, beta tester)
- Submit a Ticket (explain your game concept), wait for the votes from community.
- If the community votes in favor of your Ticket, we create a “Project” for you (so you can realese your game).
N.B.: You can edit your profil; there is no real difference between a developer and a normal user (just on your presentation page).
- What about the alpha?
The first alpha release is private and available upon request. It’s just the basic features: create an account, edit your profile, post a ticket (with videos and images), vote for a ticket, comment a ticket, edit a ticket, tickets list (order by recents, populars and stamped (=validated)), add a ticket to your favorites (+notifications when it’s stamped), view profile.
- The future?
A website with a community.
Enforce the BGE development.
A soft to install on your computer to download/play games and manage your local library (without installing Blender!).
Maybe some dedicated server system to allow online games.
Do you have a question?
