Hello game devs!
Hopefully, you're not too exhausted from all the Halloween game jams. My name is Jesse and I have a passion to help game developers do what they do best: create experiences for everyone to enjoy. With that in mind, I started my own marketing agency where I help indie games devs market their games, and host game jams with cash prizes!
With than in mind...
Welcome to the first GameDevFund game jam! This will be a monthly game jam with themes revolving around different marketing principles. Often, developers wait till they are shipping to think about how to sell their game. Unfortunately, they soon realize that to succeed in marketing it needs to be integrated into your development. Through these game jams, there will hopefully be great marketing practices taken that you can apply to your large scale projects. And if all else fails, you'll have cash prizes if you win!
As this is marketing themed, our first theme is one of the most important aspects of selling your game: knowing your audience. So the theme for this game jam will be...
STALKING YOUR PLAYER
...ok, hear me out. Stalkers know EVERYTHING about the person they torment. Successful marketing, is kinda just legal stalking. Create a game that anticipates your player, calls them out for making certain decisions, or even does something before they do it. The idea here is you create your game for a specific audience so that when you market your game you can focus your marketing efforts (because unfortunately, marketing costs some money)
1. Overall Quality (Was the game fun?)
2. Surprise Factor (Did the game make you stop and go "Wait a minute... how did you know?"
