    My bookmark links not to the opening page of IGT but to 'View New' messages... But since some threads have already registered well over 15 posts you actually need to follow two links from there to read the last post. I suggest it'll be better if the results shown in 'View New' directly lead you to the latest unread post. This can be done if the search results themselves carry the link to 'view the first unread post.' How about it, moderators?

    Sorry for the late response. This site was made on a pre-made script and thus has a few restriction towards its modification. Sadly what you wish for, is one of them.

    We are working on a new project which is taking up all the resources at our disposal. Once we are finished with the project, we shall start with the due upgradation of the site.

    Do keep the feedback coming.

    Thank you.

    Ah, that formal and straight reply really befits the administrator!

    By the by, can we outsiders too have a sneak peek into what's cooking about the 'new project?'

    It has nothing to do with guitars in any way.

    We are making a "Game Site" India's First!. Its a really big project involving more than a 100 volunteers around India. The site would offer Reviews, Previews, India related game news, Profile of Indian Game Clans, Online Gaming and alot more.

    We are also planning to advertise this site offline, as well as online. We are working on the designing and programming aspect of the site, right now. It would be launched anywhere in the month of Jan-Feb 2004.

    Basically, if you are into PC Games then this site would interest you.

    Oh what an idea! Keep up!

    Given the immense potential our programmers have, it's really a surprise and even shame that we are so primitive in indigenous game designing - all for this one fact that we still find no bright avenues of honing these skills and churning out really good games in India. I'm still told that if one would really pursue any serious development the online course floated by the British Council, New Delhi is the only way to go. And if one would take the next step and wish to turn professional one must cross the borders into places like UK and Ireland to make any worthy career out of it. The result is, all these skillful people will end up joining companies like EA and India again, as ever, will be left drained.

    I hope your new site will somehow even encourage our programmers here to take up development more seriously and help open portals leading to the opening of larger gaming-oriented companies in India.

    Game development is at a very nascent stage in India. Its pitiful because the game industry is 30 billion + industry...even bigger than Hollywood. With our software development skills and low labor costs, we could be the next big destination for game companies to explore. Not only that, we also have more than 6 Million PC users to promote those games to. With our ever booming economy, the Indian public might not shy away from spending money of games/software's like they used too. Its a whole new ball game, but we have "no players" to lead into the field.

    I think the fault here lies with the negative stereotypes of gamers portrayed in the media. Also the "Indian Mindset"...which Indian parents would like their children go into "Game Development"?

    Thus there is a need to popularize PC Gaming in India, to change the common negative perception of Games and to promote it as a full fledged sport.

    In India there is still a huge gap between Gamers, Game developers and the Game companies. There has always been a need to bridge this gap and we took the initiative to do so.

    Ofcourse to make the site successful ...that's a whole new thing altogether:)
