eZine Submissions, Ads, & General Discussion


What is this thread about?

    The HBGames eZine is a periodic publication showcasing some of the best work of the HBGames and related communities. Here in the submissions thread, you can go ahead and post any suggestions or ideas you have for eZine features or articles. If you've made or want to help make an article for the eZine, the eZine Submissions Board is the place to be.

    The eZine itself follows an 800x1000 pixel format, columned or not as best fits. Articles are featured as deemed appropriate, but if you have any preferences on formatting or location for something you've made, feel free to let us know.

The next issue is due on or around February 1st if anybody has any submissions. Actually have a decent amount of content ready so anything you post might end up in the next issue.

I've been asked by a few people if I'd make the eZine more regular.

1. I'm worried that it'd get annoying, having frequent updates.
2. I'm worried that, as nobody else submits articles, it'd end up just being Amy's Blog the eZine.
3. I'm worried the length and quality of eZines might suffer as a result.

But I'd be more than happy to do it, if that's what everyone wanted. Even once-every-three-weeks might make sense.

In short though, while it's well read, if you want it more frequent:

- Submit articles or other content you think might be enjoyable.
- Post feedback and comments! Feedback is extremely valuable.

Anything you'd personally like to read :) the more random the better, really, as that's what keeps it interesting.

Well, there's the prospect of app and Facebook-based games stealing, or copying, the work of artists for their games. Like how it effects the artists, and possibly other indie developers by giving them negative stigma!

Ooh, what if we have a "Storytime with Jason" in every eZine and I just go batshit insane and write weird stories every month?! :thumb:

PS. Can you remember the Storytime sketch from Monty Python? Watched it last night (Was watching the best of Monty Python), so good.

... With a melon?!

Do it!

Also, I have had an idea, which is never a good thing, but still, I am going to work on something and post it soon. You've been warned. The eZine will stay monthly, but...

An idea.

Fine I'll do it, but only because you've put me under so much pressure!

Generally I'm aiming for the 1st of every month, just to keep some structure.

I kind of feel like my "link" to indie devs on Twitter and both on this site and .web may be helpful... o.o

If Advanced RPG Maker goes ahead (which it will, given the response on the official forums) then the HBGames eZine can relax a little bit and act as a more casual eZine for the site, of course maintaining it's professionalism and game related articles at the same time.

So I've decided that since I'm going to start writing articles for you for the eZine, either the HBGames one or the Advanced RPG Maker one... I want a sort of... Author Avatar, y'know like how in books there's a picture of the Author?

Well... five minutes on Flash got me this!

Old and disgusting!


(I'll definitely make some changes before he's final (Because the line work and stuff is VERY messy)... but the style will pretty much stay the same, over-excited creepy guy, lol... it'd also look a LOT better if I was drawing with a tablet, this is just mouse work, lol)

Edit: Here we go... this is final now, he really is a pretty boy! :heart:

So I've written my first article and sent it to you Amy... I've changed the name of the header, it's no longer Storytime with Jason, but it's similar lol... Babble Time with Jason, because y'know... just me babbling about random shit and whatever else.

With not much content to go by (but thank you to Jason for actually submitting something, the last submission we had was in 2009!) I'm afraid I've taken a few liberties with this issue. But you'll like it anyway, because if you didn't I'd ban you. There's still two months to go, anyway. Feel free to suggest things for the spotlight by the way.

Well like I've said before somewhere... I'll write more articles if you'd like lol, and Babble Time could easily go on for more than one page, lol... by the way what did you think of it?

That said, I'm sort of curious about what actually goes into making these. You're always on edge regarding filling them up.

Amy! I took some photos of my VERY OLD RPG Maker game making development notes. Do you think they could be of use for a laugh in the either of the eZines?

Sorry guys, I'm more behind on this than I thought. Work is taking it out on me at the moment. Accidentally signed away my days off and it's half term etc [/excuses].

This will be out, but I still have to do: a review of Nobody has to Die (unless anybody else especially wants to do one), the spotlight, intro page, closing page, and then there's a page left to fill with small stuff.
