      Can I get in trouble for naming my game similar to one that's not in the same genre? For instance, if a game is named Playarada and I name my game Playarade, can I get in trouble? Be mindful that the games would be in two completely different genres. Thank you!

      3 Reasons Indies Should Apply for DreamHack's New Activities
      Coming to Austin June 1-3
       
      We're expanding our DreamHack events to encompass a "Gaming Lifestyle" approach. So basically we're bringing a ton of new content to the already massive show that focuses on Indies, Tabletop, Films, Students, Art, and more. Of course this means we're making everything we're already doing even bigger and more awesome such as Esports, LAN, Music, Expo, and pretty much everything else.
      The Top 3 Activities Indies Should Apply For...
      1. Indie Playground: The Indie Playground is a curated area where games entered into our competition before the event have a chance to win a complimentary booth to showcase their game. The selected games are organized into 12 genre categories that are reflected in the layout of the Indie Playground. Multiple titles are selected for each genre ensuring attendees will enjoy as many indie titles as possible. It's free to enter and those selected will score a FREE 10'x10' booth. We're pretty flexible on what you can send us. If you're not finished with your game yet you can definitely still submit. We've judged and accepted tons of unfinished video games, tabletop, etc. before.
      Entry form....https://tinyurl.com/DH-IndiePlayground
      Deadline: April 20, 2018
       
      2. Game Pitch Championship: The Game Pitch Championship was created to help build the skills you need to successfully get your product out there. Many developers are talented and either nail the build they have to show but don’t really nail the business plan or they nail the business plan and not the build. With a pitch, you have a short time to impress so you need to nail it all. This competition will not only help hone your skills with industry vets guiding your progress through the competition, but you’ll win accolades too. You could also win $2,500!
      Entry Form....https://tinyurl.com/DH-GamePitchChamp
      Prize: $2,500 USD
      Deadline: April 20, 2018
       
      3. Art Gallery: Exactly as it sounds, our gallery showcases some of the most amazing artists in video games, tabletop, comics, anime, and more. DreamHack staff select a number of works then we just print cool art on canvas for FREE—your game gets a slice of advertising while our fans enjoy a non-TV wall on the expo floor. It doesn't even require you to be onsite for the event, so this one should be a no-brainer.
      Entry Form....https://tinyurl.com/DH-GameArtGallery
      Deadline: April 20, 2018
       
      Good luck!! Reach out to sydney.mantrom@dreamhack.com for questions.

Hey all, what are some good ideas for getting people to find your game? I've got a simple web site and a twitter account. I'm going to use the twitter account to show how I make games and give out other behind-the-scenes info. I've made a trailer and put it up on youtube. I'm thinking about starting a dev blog. And I've written down and plan to implement most every suggestion Extra Credits has made: 

Any other ideas?

Hire a marketing company if you have limited skills.  If you've done research and have acquired a minimum competency level then do your own marketing.

There is an enormous body of skills for marketing, just like any professional work. Also there are costs for marketing, most people and organizations won't advertise your stuff unless you give them something.  Exactly what that "something" is varies, from millions of dollars, to t-shirts and hats, to pre-made graphics.
