How can someone promote a pixel art rpg nowadays? Posted on May 22, 2023 by Anonymous An arpg to be exact.
But not if it's rogueslop.
Both of these, as well as some RPG sub-eddits.
Probably sending demos/review copies to niche Youtubers/Streamers as well.
So I just shill it here and people will find it?
If it looks cool I'll wishlist it.
It will not disappoint. It’s a spy RPG inspired by James Bond. With dating and everything. It’s what I see combining Goldeneye with Persona 5. The only thing is the art which would be pixel art.
worked for andrew's game
RPG games, especially indie RPGs, need to have some kind of interesting story for them to take off. Good art and music will definitely help
And just like this anon said spam it on Ganker
I honestly never heard of Omori until I saw the constant threads about it and decided to play it
Make a free demo.
Worked for Signalis and it was just some futuristic lesbo horror game.,
surprisingly, that low-poly ps1 look still remains largely underutilized
Because early 3D is love or hate. Not to mention it requires artistry to actually look good.
Are you fucking serious it's the current fad to make games like ps1 especially horror games.
Reddit eats this shit up. Be sure to mention that it's "retro" and a "spiritual successor" to [popular old game]. Name drop as many beloved retro games in your marketing even if they have nothing to do with your game. Add some story about how you quit your job to heckin make video games as a passion project. Hype up your own "gamer cred" by saying you love popular normie shit like Zelda, Final Fantasy, Chrono Trigger, etc.
Good. Any other thing to do so that it can stand out?
That’s for sure. But how to promote the demo of it then?
I saw a video from a YouTuber and they suggested sending demos to streamers or video makers in general. Seems like a good idea
Make it good
Check out ASTLIBRA Revision on Steam, OP
Are there any COMPLETED indie rpgs out now?
I yearn for the simpler times.
a lot of rpg maker and game maker games.
I'll look them up
Chained Echoes and Crystal Project were two recent big ones.
indie rpgs have the most faggy names
and they're all absolute bangers
no theyre not
Well, OT1, no. OT2 is 2023 GOTY.
It's the CURRENT YEAR, anon. Forget pixels.
a world in harmony with itself
a world bent to match the tastes of people who never knew it or cared
Agreed, the new version looks like shit. Watch them remake it like ff7 and fuck it up some more. Hopefully, I'll be dead before then.
this version is actually delisted now
Show gameplay, and make the game well.
We will do the rest for you, more or less.
In other words, if you make a great game others will promote it for you by virtue of the love they feel for it.
Understood. You can be assured that I will be back.
Pixel 16bit thing will have a permanent "basic bitch" label on it
If you had done it like 12 years ago then it would be fresh
So try to concentrate on showing actual gameplay
It has good gameplay. The art is one of the things there because it’s the first thing people see after all. I’m no artist by any means, but I am a programmer. Even if I was an artist if I personally believe that gameplay is more important than the art. This is not even controversial, it’s a fact. I have to sacrifice the art to give good space to the gameplay.
>Even if I was an artist if I personally believe that gameplay is more important than the art.
It's a balance, but art sells a game more than gameplay.
True. That’s why I came to ask. You as a gamer, how can I sell this game to you. It has good gameplay, but what to do if I’m not an artist. I won’t do a horrible nor a bad job, but it won’t be as good as an actual artist.
In the end, the only thing that matters is the experience of the player. Games are not a painting, they are an interactive medium.
buy art and dont cheap out on it.
Hiring a freelancer can be pretty expensive, but it’s also true that I don’t want to get cheap with this…. I’ll need to see what can I do.
No, it won’t. I will make sure of that.
>Give copies to aome e-celeb cunts
>Normalfags eat shit with a grin because they were told to
You don't, you let it die because it would look and play like total trash.
In fact, I will show gameplay soon. And I will make one of the best 2d rpg you’ve ever played.
