Hello,

 

I am the Lead Programmer of the upcoming game Karmaflow. We started an Indiegogo campaign and are trying to raise funds for the music, because this will be a big part of the game. We did not start full production of the game yet, because we first want to know how many musicians we can involve (pay). The game will be made with or without a successful indiegogo campaign, but if the campaign is successful we would be able to pay more awesome musicians! Please take a look on our indiegogo page if you like to know more!

 

Now we are trying to spread the word about our project. But it seems like the most game websites are not picking up on our story, we send them a press release and it also appeared on websites such as gamepress, but the majority of game news websites doesn't seem to pay attention. I understand it might be less interesting for them to talk about a small project that did not even start production yet, then for example GTA V or whatever big news they like to post. But in the other way this makes it difficult for new developers to let the world know about their game. 
 

Which next step would you take?

Thanks in advance

 

Alexander

Press releases is the right way to go.  If possible, you could also attach information that helps the press see that your story is newsworthy for their readers.
