When did you first hear about Palworld? What was their marketing strategy?

When did you first hear about Palworld?
What was their marketing strategy?
How is it possible for a game to get so huge with such a small budget? Are gamers a hivemind now?
I'm not asking for a value judgment here. I don't care if you hate the game. Tell me, how did everyone hear about this small indie title? Did it get on national news? Did your favourite big streamer cover it? Did they advertise it more than Raid Shadow Legends? Explain it to me. Nobody heard about this game until right fricking now, and everyone claims to have heard about it years ago, which is not reflected in any data.

      Mainly on Ganker, there have been threads posted over the last year. I didn't take it seriously because it didn't look good from the screenshots. I also saw a post on gamingonlinux. Then it blew up on Ganker and I played it on Game Pass, had a lot of fun, and bought it on Steam because it was only $30.

        So, it blew up because Ganker saw some rando journos cover it? Why did the journos cover it?

          The article was from Jan 10 before release. I am assuming he covered it because he got a press release and likes Monster Catching games. Maybe they paid him for the post. When I saw it, I thought it was weird because it doesn't have a Native Linux Client and since it was unreleased, no one knows how well it would work on Proton.
          >So, it blew up because Ganker saw some rando journos cover it?
          I wouldn't say that. Streamers picked up the game, most notablely Asmongold and looked like they were having fun and the game looked like fun. That is probably why it blew up. They may have even paid the streamers. The price being $26 and it is free to try on Game Pass probably helped too. P5R blew up on Ganker when it was released to Game Pass too.

              Websites get paid to promote press releases. Streamers get paid to play games. Even if you have a shit load of money and pay to do these two things, unless your game is fun, it wont blow up like Palworld. Having played Palworld and P5R, it is much easier to see why Palworld is successful than it is for P5R. If your question is why did Palworld blow up. The answer you are looking for is Palworld is fun.

                True... but I don't think this logically explains what we see. Tons of fun games get limited traction, and they had sizable budgets, years of careful marketing leading to the predictable and intended small result. Being fun is not a win condition, it's not even a requirement, garbage still sells. Palworld is outperforming everything. It's bigger than fricking Elden Ring, which people were talking about constantly for years.

    Their goofy mafia city-esque trailer during indie live expo

    • 1 month ago
      Anonymous

      No, that was in 2022. There were practically no searches for Palworld at that time.
      Crossreferencing with social media, posts relating to Palworld from that time garnered ~no attention. No likes. No views. Nothing.

      I heard about it 3 years ago when the first YouTube trailer dropped. A year or so later we got another trailer and about a year ago we got YouTube reveals of 2 new pals every weekend. The only marketing they did was giving the game for free to vtubers.

      No, you did not, because if you had, those videos would have views. They do not.

      if you were an actual Ganker poster and not some moronic normalgay you'd already know about the game for several years.

      Is your claim that Ganker has purchased 2 million copies of Palworld? Interesting.

    When they dropped a trailer in 2021 because Google knows I'm a Pokemon shill.

    Then I got scammed by Craftopia, realized it was same developer, and assumed Palworld was never going to happen. Even waited for reviews to pile in confirming it wasn't a buggy wasteland.

    Ages ago, though I forgot about it until it blew up after release.
    >What was their marketing strategy?
    Early on it was just "Pokemon with guns" which was enough to at least pique my interest.
    >How is it possible for a game to get so huge with such a small budget?
    By just being a game. Not a vehicle to push an agenda, nor an attempt to be deep and thought-provoking. It doesn't try to be art nor anything more than it is. It's just silly, dumb fun, which is what video games are supposed to be.

    So, if five people buy a scamgame a decade ago, it is normal and rational to assume that this studio's next title will sell millions of copies with no marketing, right?

    Can't say I was expecting it to blow up so much but it is pretty solid. It was nice to see Ark's interface in a state where it doesn't lag to hell and back.

    when it was announced like 2 years ago at whatever game showcase it was -- I genuinely don't remember.
    I had it on my wishlist since that trailer released and I bought the game when it came out without really looking at any early gameplay footage. 30 dollars is quite cheap for something like this
