You want me to buy your game? Next time advertise.
Yet another multiplayer indie game, comes out of nowhere. No previews, no reviews, no Youtube first impressions, no ads, no greenlight. Nothing, absolutely nothing. On you site you have exactly 4 positions in the press section. Three of them are in german, one is a new bit from October 12th, 2012.

It does have a demo at least.
swenor Mar 26, 2013 @ 11:33am 
A demo that refuses to download (only for now I hope).

Restart Steam. It worked for me.

It's not a problem of developers (and a game of course) that you cannot watch at least two trailers.

Yep. I did that, just to make sure there are no problems on my end and download started. Steam/Demo needed to register I guess.

Now when 2 ppl confirmed that demo works you can try it out. You have best opportunity to try the game now. There is no better than demo.

Lots of games come to steam without advertisement. Not every company can afford to put commercials on TV

Yes two trailers will convince enough people that this game is worth it and it will have a bustling community.

I mean there are no sites about indie games (IndieGames, IndieStaik, whats that?), there are no youtube shows that cover indie games.

I am not talking about TV. I am talking about Kotaku, Destructoid, TigSource, IndieStatik, IndieGames, IndieGameMag, IndieDb among others.

Not every company can afford that either. Magazines and websites also have limited space so they're not able to cover everything.

The store page says this is published by Topware. Topware is not a small company. They publish on both PC and consoles. They published games like Two Worlds, Iron Sky, Jagged Alliance and many more. So please don't tell me they had no money to get this game some coverage. If thats the case than the devs should sue them. Unless it was the case that the Publisher knew the game was poor, which I doubt is the case cause the game looks pretty good.

Not every preview or review or interview need to be paid. Websites have limitless space to do this. Sometimes the developer don't need to afford, they just need to connect someone, like those German video game press.

You have the demo working, so what's the issue now?

They don't have limitless space, not by any means. Ever heard of servers? You know that harddrive on your computer? It's not unlimited is it? What makes you think a game site has unlimited space?
