I've been frequenting the itch boards and Discord channels here for a little while now, and see a very specific question cropping up fairly regularly. These generally ask words to the effect of: "how do I get more views/downloads/attention for my game?".
I'm not claiming to be any sort of indie-dev guru here (Headspun is my first game as an indie developer, and there's a lot I'm still to learn), but my day job is in AAA Global Brand Management for a major games publisher, and having worked in the industry for over a decade (in game journalism, community and PR over the years, too) I've absorbed a few best practices along the way.
I'd like to help people out, where possible, and in any free time I have while I'm not finishing my own game (which isn't much, I'l admit), I'd like to offer some free consultation for your game/project. I can offer feedback and give a bit of a steer on:
- Key art / logo and other brand assets
- Store pages and the importance language plays in your game's brand
- Trailer and marketing videos
- PR & Influencer strategies
Basically anything outside of development itself (which I'm still learning myself!).
I can't promise to find time for everything, but if a project looks interesting or catches my eye, I'll help where I can. If this is of interest to you, please drop a line to firstname.lastname@example.org with a link to your project and any specific questions you might have.
