Tips for Developing a Gaming Website

Updated on: November 6, 2013

This will reduce your bandwidth — the amount of data passed back and forth over the internet — and will encourage your members to stay active.


2. Many people overlook target audiences: When you design your game you need to keep in mind who actually plays your game. If your game is for young children then you don’t want a game that’s overly complex, hard to navigate through and has few images. Also take into account your audience’s familiarity with computers and the Internet. A child isn’t as likely to be able to understand complex directions or sequences whereas a hard core video game addict should have no problem navigating menus and following technical directions. Games made for ages 5-7 should have lots of pictures, big buttons, be easy to play, and have few words to keep younger children interested.
