Just thought I'd share progress on the new arcade. The current one has been a bit of a victim of it's own sucess, we're really excited it's taken off so well and people enjoy using it. The new arcade is going to:
- Fix a lot of bugs that currently exist in the current one
- Give more control to authors
- Allow for larger games
We've got a lot of exciting new features planned for it as well which we hope to launch after the initial release.
I thought I'd just stop by and show you all screenshots of the design and progress. If any of you have comments, feature suggestions etc please leave them here! (I will read them all even if I don't manage to reply to them all).

The homepage games will be done in a similar fashion to Reddit using a "Hotness" rating which is based on age and votes. This gives everyone a chance to hit the front page and get lots of plays.
Thanks for taking a look!
