This new forum slowly evolved to FreeGameDev.net after Charlie registered the domain name FreeGameDev.net for it and became less active. On the other hand Ghoulsblade and Hagish started building projects around the forum, for example FreeArtSearch and Planet FreeGameDev.net.
Many of the forum's features were created by Goodwin:
- Project Open: Project Open is a sub forum created to facilitate the effort to open source proprietary freeware games.
- Forum hosting: There are subforums for some game projects. Current projects include Fortress, irrlamb, Java Classic Role Playing Game, Stress Free Zone, Me_Programmer, OpenDungeons Hardwar, EasyRPG, and Fortress are examples of hosted projects.
- Free Gamer Awards 2007: The awards were started to highlight the best games of the free gaming world.
