Well it's great to be able to say that 2017 was play idev games first complete year! As the site originally started at the beginning of April 2016 to a very slow start and with very minimal functionality in it's earliest alpha stage. Still at that point looking like the resurrected project that it was. It had the most basic upload functionality. Something that the original resurrected project never had and part of the reason that the project was abandoned in the first place as it had been my initial plan in the beginning. Instead the original project became a directory of games from other sources until I closed the site down.
But around April 2016 I looked back at what I had and decided to add the upload functionality and release it as a side project as play idev games. The idea was to help other devs make money from ads online and to have some where to release my own games online. A site that could easily allow you to upload your games and start earning from online advertisements.
What had started as a side project in 2016 has become my main project in 2017. So much has been changed and now features that seemed a million miles away at first have now been implemented. With the opening of my-ga.me as well there's now a real chance for a future for this site! Most importantly the site is starting to feel more complete. Despite still having planned features and changes yet to still come I've decided to take the site out of beta for 2018! That doesn't mean the site won't continue to be improved past beta stage. It just means that the site has become what I envisioned a long time ago.
Also as the site has had its first complete year, I wanted to give an overview of 2017 for everyone to see. Something we can look back on at the end of 2018.
