I met with both Mike and TJ late last week to get started out the game development blog aggregation project. We pounded out some more details and TJ began working on a design.

The site will consist of an aggregated feed for game development, divided up into subsections for production, art, design, and programming.  Visitors to the site will not only be able to subscribe to the full feed (or a specific subfeed of their choosing) and read latest posts, but they can also browse a full list of the blogs listed which will also include blogger’s twitter names (if they have one).

Visitors can also follow the twitter feed we intend to set up which will post about new blog posts as they are available in the feed.  In addition there will be a page to allow visitors to submit their site for feed inclusion.

For feed cleanliness, each blog will be hand approved to insure no spam and no inappropriate sites are listed.  Sites should be blogs, this isn’t a feed for advertising.  Each post will also be individually approved by the administrators so subscribers don’t need to worry about their feed’s getting polluted with garbage.

Like what we’re doing? Want your site included?

Send me a message or a mention on twitter @mar33 and I’ll add you to the list.  Don’t have a twitter? Feel free to also email your blog to margutteter@gmail.com. There’s no restriction on what links I’m taking at this point, so please, submit away! Thanks for everyone who’s submitted already. For those of you who’re too excited about the list to wait, there’s a sampling of the links I’ve gotten too far after the jump. I haven’t completely filtered these yet, but I don’t think any of them are spammers, advertisers, or just plain jerks, so we should be ok.
