Hey,

I'm working on better integration of FreeDink in the software centers, e.g. Gnome Software (which replaced the Ubuntu Software Center) and KDE Discover.
A while ago I added the following screenshots:
"Game screen"
"Game logo"
"D-Mods manager (DFArc)"

What do you think?
Do you have better screenshots?
(w/o copyright issues please )

EDIT: also they want 16:9 ratio, >620px, and we can add a caption.

For now it looks like this:
freedink-gnome-software.png
freedink-plasma-discover.png
There is only a few days before the next Debian freeze, at which point changes won't be possible in Debian/Ubuntu for a while.

Well it seems no one thought about a screenshot but the ones so far seem good. Keep up the good work!

I disagree. 
Totally forgot to answer. Can you use dmod screenshots? The one with the duck is kinda empty. You might wanna use something with a bit more of a scenery, to attract attention.

That's a good point Mr. Toof. Perhaps we should ask Redink1 for his best choices in screenshots that show interesting places to go and things to do.

One D-Mod screenshot would be good - no stolen graphics please. Just one, because there's a limited number of screenshots, and because we already have a DFArc3 screenshot to show there are extensions.
I like my duck screenshot because it makes you wonder what will happen (the player won't be disappointed) and hints at the twisted humor.

It gives you a hint because you know this is a game where you can behead ducks. I don't really know any other game that has something even remotely similar. So hinting at twisted humour that way, if you ask me... is out.

I don't think any author here will complain if you use one of their screenshots that are already uploaded. Heck, that would probably be a big honor. Unless you use mine, 'cause I stare blankly at those abstract terms such as 'honor' and shit. So 1000000$ is on the line for mine.

Joking aside, since MsDink is active, maybe she can craft some pretty scenery for this. We would totally lie to the whole world that the game and the dmods are that pretty, but it is marketing. Add a dragon or two, a running beheaded duck with lots of blood, and Dink saying some inappropriate stuff to a little girl sprite, and poof!

F**k society!

Thanks for offering screenshots Maybe we can make it clear that it's from a game extension, and implicitly showcase the editor- wait, that's what's been missing, a screenshot of the damn built-in editor!

Anyway, we can showcase a game extension. There's a caption along with the screenshot where we can tell it's a D-Mod - although I didn't see that text displayed yet in software centers yet.

What is "ASQ" by the way?
