So... there were apparently too many threads from small streamers/Youtubers in the General Discussion forum and, as a result, a sticky thread was made so that devs could let it be known that they'd welcome their games being streamed. Almost no streamers have posted on this, and I can't see much in the way of discussion so... can anyone think of a better way?
We've had a number of Youtube/ Twitch plays of our two VN games, and they've been really useful. Not so much in terms of publicity, but in seeing how different people approach the problems in our games and seeing what paths they take. We've also met some cool people from very different background - and it's good for the players to have a walkthrough if your game's sadistically difficult- so... encouraging Youtubers/ Twitchers has many benefits for players and devs.
So, I'd like to throw this open to the floor and see if anyone has any good ideas. In Gamejolt, they have a specific section of the forum for Let's-Plays, the downside of this is that people often spam a bunch of topics without reading them, and the whole thing has become a bit messy- with long dead threads at the top. Some kind of database might be an idea... but this doesn't tend to promote discussion which is pretty essential. Maybe encouraging Let's-Players to promote their channels? maybe some kind of Craigslist/ Lonely Hearts system? I dunno... XD
