I've been developing incremental games on the web for almost 5 years, and have been playing them for even longer. They've not only helped me grow as a person, but also taught me programming, and I couldn't be more grateful for discovering them.
In 2018, I made a post to the incremental_games subreddit showing off my very first HTML incremental game I had ever felt confident enough to publish. Knowing that I was 11 while writing these posts and comments makes me want to grimace, but looking back I was incredibly lucky. There was not a single comment telling me my game was "shit", "just awful", or anything of the sort. It was all constructive criticism, and because of it, I was able to grow as a developer and get to where I am today--making cool stuff like galaxy.
I understand that you may not like a game. But if you want to see better games in the future, you need to criticize constructively! The reason that good games can be made is because developers were able to hone their skills thanks to high-quality feedback from players like you. When you say that a game is bad without elaboration or suggestions for improvement, you're not just being a nuisance, but you're actively harming developers. If you put your heart and soul into your work, and someone just says it sucks, you're not going to want to make more in the future. When you tell developers their games are bad instead of explaining why, you are just reducing the likelihood that they will want to make and publish games (for free, mind you). I want galaxy to be a safe and welcoming environment for everyone, and that means developers too.
Starting today, any new comments made that are nothing but insults towards games or developers will be removed. I'm tired of seeing developers' perceptions of galaxy reduced because we offer a place for assholes to leave nonconstructive criticism.
Galaxy's comments are spread out over 150+ games, and I don't want to spend my time reading every single comment. If you see a new comment that's like the "DON'T" example below, please click the 3 dots and then "report comment". You'll receive a thank you PM if we took action because of your report :)
DON'T do this:
Wow. This is just awful, don't even bother trying to play.
I like the premise, but I think the execution could use a little work. The buttons shouldn't shift the page when you hover over them, and the contrasting colors can be jarring. I also find myself having to move my mouse across the whole screen over and over to move between tabs. Maybe you could add a few more hotkeys or shift the tab buttons down a bit?
