How to get more downloads?

Ideas and discussion about publishing and distributing your games

Post » Thu Sep 10, 2015 2:53 am

now obviously I am not expecting thousands of downloads but i wouldn't mind a few. I uploaded my game to the google play store about a week ago and it only has 1 download :(. I know marketing plays a big part in it but how can I get more recognition for the app.

I wrapped it using intel xdk. Is there a way to add meta tags through the open source in intel XDK or anyway in general. Key words etc?

Thank you !

Spread the word, baby. Create a Facebook page and plug the hell out of it. Perhaps you could use project wonderful for advertising. You can pay for advertising or do free 2 day bids as well.

@ererer you can make all cool games you want but getting the word out is the real challenge
