I am developing a game and I hope it will be ready soon. A question is in my mind: should I make a pre-release info? I saw a lot of advertising of big games, exactly games of big companies. Some of them are doing this years before the game is released (or planned to be released). This results in a crowd of gamers expecting something and their appetite is raising over the time. I saw also some indie developers doing that.
I am anxious about doing this because there is no way back once it started. Lets say game screenshots will give enough info for some original game aspects which could be stolen - could they once I made this like prerelease info?
In other hand I am totally exausted and cant share any info for years except with some people far away from this or some small pictures with some others.
And also I dont know what is better when it is released. No doubt the most important thing is to be good quality, yes... But still I cant decide. I hope it is clear.
