Day/Night theme, AJAX, responsive design

Posted 09 July 2013 - 01:51 PM

We just updated our website, PorkyGames.com , which is made in PHP, but has some awesome Javascript features:

- It uses AJAX (scroll down to see it in action)
- Responsive design (try resizing the window - it's calculated with Javascript)
- Day/Night theme (we're quite proud of this; choose with the buttons on the right side)
... notice that the Day/Night theme is auto-generated with Javascript for every reload !

The website should also work in IE.

What are your thoughts about the website?

Firefox - 22.0

The loading seemed really really slow.

... are those.. clouds? that are obstructing my view? Super annoying. The white cloud on a white background isn't too slick.


I don't understand why each letter of the company name is actionable.


So what's the point - you load links to other folks hosted games?

And yeah, we thought the letters would be good entertainment....

And no, we host the games ourselves, as do all of our competitors. We're just original in design.

In Chromium on linux it shows up fine. I would personally go with a different skin than either the night or day one you currently have, and also reduce the amount of javascript being run on the page. One thing to consider is that some people may have slower computers or internet, or even have javascript disabled (it is only about 3% for this last group through, so not much of a worry). Your site should still work on most configurations.

My problem with the skins is that they look "kiddie". While that may be what you are aiming for, something along the lines of g4tv.com is much more professional looking and still offers the ability of multiple skins (they offer an orange and a black one).
