As you can see, things look a little different around here. After six years Co-Optimus was beginning to show its age. Our site isn't built on an existing platform, but rather a custom coded piece of software we wrote from the ground up to facilitate information, news, and a community around cooperative gaming. Today we launch Version 4.0.
We had a few goals in mind when we created the new build of Co-Optimus and it's the result of almost six months of work. We really wanted to clean things up, remove a lot of clutter, get rid of extra ads and images. We wanted something that was fast and flexible. We also wanted to make sure Co-Optimus would reinforce the features of its co-op games everywhere possible. We wanted to make sure the information you needed was at your fingertips.
Here are some of the highlights:
- Completely revamped fluid design that works on all platforms - desktop, tablet and mobile
- Redesigned article pages with easy access to database entries for related games and other related media
- Completely rebuilt co-op games database with fast searching and filtering capabilities
- Brand new video page
- Redesigned Forums that are also mobile friendly
- A new commenting engine
- Plus much more!
Over the next few days we'll be making some final tweaks to things as we settle into our new home and then provide a tour of the facilities so to speak. Even though we ran a beta of the new site for almost a month, we know you might find something missing or broken. Please use the Feedback button you see on the right side of the screen.
