BGP DevLog #182 (Gotta Gain Marketing Chops)

Yotes Games



     A key problem with Battle Gem Ponies right now is that nobody knows it exists. How do I let people who'd probably like it know it exists? Well, sitting here and talking about it on my website nobody's heard of isn't getting the job done. And an occasional mention here and there on high traffic blogs isn't working either. 

     How about I take it to the hypest place on the information highway? The place people specifically go to look to see interesting things they'll probably like...

     YouTube. I'm talking about YouTube. I need to take my channel seriously and start pumping out videos that show what the game is all about, what I'm all about as a dev, and for the love of all things holy get my Patreon numbers up before my debts swallow me whole (this game is officially years too late and things I've been putting off won't stay at bay forever). 

     See all the different ways I plan to save my butt financially by pushing Battle Gem Ponies under a much bigger spotlight in this week's development log!

      A week ago I had what I thought was a great game idea. Well, I spent the whole week improving my art skills, which, I thought, would be necessary. But now I'm not sure it's such a great idea. Anyway, here's the results of a week's worth of sketching:

      You train a dog from zero, teaching it a number of commands, based on some kind of neural network. You then are able to take on "real-world" missions in various fields, such as police, and search and rescue. You get bonuses for your performance in each mission, which allow you to purchase different upgrades.

      My primary issue is the appearance of the words "neural network". But if I remove that, I don't really see any gameplay left... I guess I don't see a lot of gameplay, in general, beyond getting the dog to do what you want. Uh, I suppose it's time to stop with scribbling and get to prototyping?

      Hey guys!

      I've made my new showreel. I did my best and I hope to optimize it as thoroughly as possible.

      Really want to hear your opinion about it.

      Here is my new game, and it is up on Google Play.
      I would love to receive some feedback from you guys to improve it. The game is free to download from Google play.
      Here is the download link: Color Lines Flexible
      This is a classic color lines game, but I added some new features to make it different to previous ones.
      Here is the demo video: Color Lines Flexible Demo Video
      I am looking forward to your feedback, either it is negative or positive. Thank you
      Here is some screenshots:
