    This is an excellent idea and I recommend all devs sign up to give their support. I think the key to making it a huge success is to (somehow) make it appealing to game players as well as game developers. I have a few of suggestions that might be worth considering:

    - The home page is very text heavy at the top. The first thing someone should see when entering the site is a load of image links to the games, maybe move the game feed to the top.
    - There's no way to easily browse games by platform. I'm specifically interested in Android games but I can't find a way to just see all of them. A "View all games on [PLATFORM]" link for each platform on the home page would be handy.
    - Get an iOS and Android app out as soon as you can. This is really important for the mobile platforms because at the moment I need to transition from my PC to my phone and look for the game I want on the app store, doesn't sound like a big deal but you'd be surprised at how much that step can affect downloads. The first version of your app can be really simple, just a list of new games for the relevant platform would be fine, add more features later.

    Hope this is useful feedback for you ;)
