“Your No.1 Source of Games That Are Just OK.”
Just OK Games began as a Marketing class exercise where we had to create the website of a fictional game company.
As we were juggling with other assignments, day-time jobs, and the stress of impending midterms and project deadlines, we were reflecting on how we were a bit too exhausted to make something absolutely remarkable. We weren’t doing top-of-the-class projects, nor were we failing, but our assignments were just okay.
(In hindsight, we were doing more than just okay, but we were having, as stressed-out individuals sometimes tend to have, a slight case of Impostor Syndrome.)
Then we began having a good laugh at the idea of making a tongue-in-cheek game company that brags about being anything but extraordinary, and JUST OKAY GAMES was born.
Just OK Games was made in less than two weeks, heavily customizing a child theme version of Themeco’s X-theme and WordPress. It is a responsive website stacked full of placeholder content with a strong focus on arranging information in a logical and easy-to-use manner.
