Hello!

I’m trying to figure out how to spread news about an indie game to as many gamers as we can, without spamming every freaking Social Media platform there is.

Though our team is still far from actually releasing the game, we figured it’s the right time to start thinking about where do we want to talk about our game. With the recent rise of popularity of Pinterest, Quora, Linkedin and so on, we are wondering if that’s where we should be as well, or will we just end up targeting the wrong audience? Naturally, we don’t want this to happen, so my question today is: Where would you most likely get news about upcoming games, and possibly even follow the development of a game you like?

Would that be Facebook? Twitter? Pinterest? Snapchat? LinkedIn? Instagram? Quora? Popular forum? Perhaps a developer’s website? Is there any other place I forgot and you think might be the right place to post for us? Please let me know in the comments. Help is much appreciated.

I see a fair amount of people I follow on twitter post and retweet about indie games. Game journalists and other game developers.

It has to be Reddit, right?

Discord is the most popular gaming platform these days.
