USING YUNOÏA

What is different about Yunoïa?

Yunoïa is a B2B platform providing professionals a different experience than a regular shop or a news website. We have build an exclusive 2 step concept of Viewing (Viewer) and Managing (Dashboard).

Viewing

By clicking on the Games Menu you can see games in an overview queue (See queue). You can freely browse through the queue to discover new games by clicking Next or Previous. Every time you view a project page you can use the control panel to decide what you want to do with the game project you are viewing (see processing). There are various actions you can take on project pages.

Queue

When you want to view games and have selected the appropriate filter for your search, Yunoïa compiles a queue of games for you to explore. The order of the games is based on our proprietary algorithm allowing us to present you the most relevant games first. This algorithm takes into account variables such as Completion of the project page, number of contacts, number of shares and overall interest in the project.

Follow: When you follow a project, this game will be added to your dashboard and it will allow you to find it easily for future reference. While checking the news feed (see newsfeed), you can filter the news with only news related to the projects you follow. Following games also boosts their ranking on the platform. On Dashboard, we are currently expanding the functionalities of what you can do with the games you follow.

Hide: When you hide a project this project will no longer be visible for you, unless you decide to manually unhide it. This can be done by selecting the appropriate option in your dashboard. Hiding project is an effective way for you to disregard games that are not interesting for you.

Contact: You can contact any development team directly by using the contact button. This button opens a message window and the message will be received directly by the project's owner. The contact button is free to use for Media, Publishers and Investors. Other types of users have a limited access to it. The number of contacts per project also boosts its ranking (visibility).

Sharing: You can share a project page present on Yunoïa on social networks. The sharing of pages also boosts their ranking (visibility) on the platform.

Dashboard: Once you have viewed and followed games, those are present in your dashboard. You can also track the news about the projects you follow in the newsfeed. By default, projects are ordered by the release date on the dashboard, allowing you to see which games are coming out soon at first sight and that maybe you should contact. We keep adding new features to the Dashboard helping you to keep track, interact and follow up with projects you are interested in on top of managing your own.
