Hi guys! I am developing a multiplayer versus game, and I'm wondering what are the best ways to encourage community engagement. I have a few specific questions, but I guess I'll be open for this thread for community engagement in general.
1) What is the proper etiquette for emailing people who have purchased the game? Also, is there a way to have a general "email list" type thing from itch - including purchasers AND non purchasers who opt it?
2) Have any of you other developers had luck getting people talking on your message boards? Are there games with successful message board communities that you've seen that I can just go check out? Any tips/tricks/etc? I'm using the itch.io boards for The Moon Fields
