In our spare time and by way of entertainment both Stefan and I are keen gamers mostly on PC and PS3 at the moment. Over a tea break one day we got chatting about using some of our gaming experience to develop a rich content website that brought together a diverse collection of game information, from articles that we'd write, blog stories from around the web, game reviews, Twitter feeds, videos and game trailers, product websites and more; and to display it in a way that allowed us to add information on an infinite number of games over time... so is born "the game cloud". (For those who don't know -"the cloud"- is another name for the internet)
We've used the project as an out-of-hours / in-house development exercise to try out new ideas and approaches on our own web platform. We'd love to hear your feedback....
We'll be adding and editing the site over the coming months as we try out new ideas, so do keep visiting. http://www.the-game-cloud.co.uk
