It's hard to overstate my satisfaction. Inspired by the presidential campaigns, John and I decided to do something similar. Simple: we asked our community for help via Overt Ops.
I'll let the results speak for themselves. Within a week, we had our press page translated into 15 languages, with about 5 more in progress!
In the overt ops forum, we have compiled a list of virtually every video game magazine, website, blog, etc. in the world! Pretty soon, we are going to announce Overgrowth globally - all thanks to our fans!
I think this is a great way to get world class PR without spending a dime. Especially handy if you are an indie studio like us, which cannot begin to afford a professional PR team. Thanks guys! We are eternally grateful to our fans.
As always, if you are a native speaker of a non-english language, please join us in Overt Ops, and if you see any errors with our fan translations, please let us know! Even if you are not a native speaker, if you have any creative marketing ideas on a zero dollar budget, we would love to hear them in Overt Ops. As always, we love to hear from you.
