Promoting a new game!

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hello everyone!

First time posting in the forum.

I've just completed my first game ever ( C++ / SDL ), and I am feeling utterly proud. It is a small game resembling Missile Command. The code is a mess, but it is my mess! In the process of making the game, I developed my own little game engine.

My question is, where would be a good place to spread the news to at least get some people to try the game?

Welcome, and congratulations on finishing a game! :)

As a first thing, you could think about creating a Project page for it here at GDNet, and maybe blogging a bit. It's unlikely to get you lots of players (maybe a couple) but feedback from other developers can be valuable. :)

 

Other than that, have you done any marketing? Do you have social media accounts for the game, have you done any press releases, tried to contact streamers, etc? Try Pixel Prospector's Marketing Guide for Game Developers for some ideas.

Great! Thank you!

That was just the information I was looking for! I didn't know about the project pages...
