How to market a game that is not as good as the big guys?

Ideas and discussion about publishing and distributing your games

Post » Sun Apr 05, 2015 3:14 am

I made a game and publish it to amazon. But only 1 people download it.

How should I promote my little game?

I know it's not as good as warcraft or the big games out there...but... I don't want the game that I made only be created to die.

Guess you have to rely a bit on word by mouth, social networks, stuff like this, without getting annoying. Game market is oversaturated, especially little games with no big novelty in their playstyle.
So think about what could catch people's attention. Art style is immediately visible. Humor can be good. Some people like going for high scores, competing with others, optimizing their play.
