A fresh web look for IKIGames.com

GreenyGreedy-NewWebSite
At last! It took several weeks but our new website is almost 100% done. We devoted part of our “vacations” to roll out a new and cleaner look for ikigames.com, paying attention to a special feature we wanted for our website: responsiveness. We wanted a responsive design, allowing for browsing via desktop and mobile (especially tablets.) Yet more, we modified the structure of the home page, for a (hopefully) better presentation of all our games. The changes comprise a revamped top menu, with a dropdown for Games, providing direct access to the pages of our works.

The largest reconstruction, though, has been implemented on the pages for each game. Now each page for a game on ikigames.com displays a representative image of the game, a brief description of the game, key features and media (screenshots, gameplay video, etc.), a better placement for the Buy and Demo buttons, subpages for showcasing these Buy and Demo versions, and finally, we close each page by recommending other games developed by IKIGames. You can take a look at the page for DragonScales 2: Beneath a Bloodstained Moon to verify by yourself the elements we’ve just described.

Other important feature we’ve finally added is.. (drumroll)… TADAH! The IKIGames Newsletter! We invite you to subscribe to the IKIGames Newsletter to receive special promotions and other surprises, as well as tips for our games and information about our ongoing and future projects. We hate spam too, so don’t worry, your email is safe with us.
