In Topic: How effective is paid advertising for an arcade PC (Win / Mac) game?

03 October 2016 - 02:27 PM

Sure, I'm most interested to hear from people who dealt with ads for a Win / Mac PC arcade-style shmup - anyone? 


That said, it'd be interesting to hear from developers of any kind of games who used paid advertising after the game has been released - was it worth it to you? To what extent etc? Did you primarily rely on the hype / press / exposure you've built prior to your game's release? Or were paid ads a vital contributor to your sales figures?


And let's not forget any guerilla marketing success / fail stories ;)

Thanks Thaumaturge,


That's what I'm going for - have some clarity, yet be "painterly" enough so it's reasonably easy to prepare suitable artwork to go with it (characters) etc

Hi Blueshogun,


Are you using the latest Google Chrome browser? The game launches in Safari as it's also webkit, but currently performance difference can be colossal between the two.


I tested it on a similar Macbook Pro as well as a really old iMac (can't remember the specs exactly but way lower than yours). On the old iMac it worked perfectly as long as Google Chrome was used - Safari performed really bad.


The lowest spec computer I used to run the game was and old, single core Pentium 4 PC which still hangs around in the office, with some shitty AGP graphics card (yep!;), and it was fine as long as Chrome was used.


I know there are other platforms and browsers out there, so I'll look into that in the future but currently I am focusing on the gameplay and the browser which happened to work best during my tests.


The other thing which could affect the performance would be if you had some Flash streaming in the other tab or another active tab with a js heavy site / app, as well as some heavy system process running.


And if the above is not the case, and you are indeed using new Chrome... than that gives me something to think about:)


Please let me know how you're getting on
