Indie Game Marketing
The Reality of Indie Game Marketing
So, you are making a game. You put years, tears, and your soul into this project and now it’s time crowd fund or launch your game. Great, you and a ton of other game developers. How will you stand out from the crowd? With more indie game developers and studios popping up every day, there is a lot of clutter to push through to reach your future fans, and your twitter account can’t do it alone.
It’s a reality that we all have to face, regardless of how it makes you feel. What’s important though is pushing those concerns aside, accept the fact, and do something about it. You need to market your game.
Everyone seems to get hung up on the term “marketing”. Marketing requires a lot, whether it’s money, time, or a certain skillset. In either event, it’s usually something that a lot of indie game developers don’t have or don’t feel is important. If your game is good enough, they will come...right?
AAA titles can spend upwards of 50% or more of the total game budget on marketing alone. To spare a lot of other facts and details, let's just say they wouldn’t invest so much of their budget into marketing if they didn’t feel it was worth it.
Well for indie game studios, it’s more often the case that they have significantly less which can be dedicated towards marketing. That’s where we can help.
