---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Strategy and resources1. Relevant game forums
If you know about or are active in a community that might be interested in Hero-U, consider starting a forum thread where appropriate. What sort of gamer would appreciate Hero-U? What would fans of the original series play today?
Feel free to use my BB code
. You may have to edit this to suit both the forum software and the community. For example, emphasize adventure game aspects or RPG aspects or indie game aspects where appropriate.
My template draws in part upon the pitches written by Bashar
of Pinkerton Road forums. There are several well-written essays here that should be circulated more widely, far beyond just the active Pinkerton Road forumgoing community.
Twincast has a very comprehensive unofficial FAQ
that you can use in responding to questions, though I prefer to point people to the Coles' answers directly. 2. Non-English media
There are fans of the original games around the world, but we are much more visible in the English part of the internet than elsewhere. Other successful kickstarter projects
invested a lot into going global but its unclear how successful they actually were in going beyond English.
We are covered by English language games media and active in English language boards. So far I've only seen a few French, Italian, German articles. Try spreading the word to gaming websites/magazines and retro gaming communities in other languages. 3. Twitter and facebook
I am less confident about twitter and facebook approaches as a means of spreading awareness, because it relies on 1) people we convinced sharing it on their own walls/twitters and 2) other people seeing it in their feeds. I see twitter and facebook as ways to contact specific individuals
(journalists, bloggers) where email addresses are not available.
