On the Hero-U Kickstarter, several dedicated posters have taken to spreading the digital word. This thread is a place to centralize all of the links, posts, articles, etc. regarding Hero-U. The reasoning behind this centralization of data is to provide other zealous supporters a single resource where they can contribute support beyond what their wallets allow.
If you have the time, please visit each of these links to show your Hero-U support through replies, up-voting, "likes", "+1's", etc. Also, if you come across one that we've missed, feel free to post it!

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Strategy and resources

1. 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.

I've had better luck cross-promoting with the articles/mentions/interviews. Unfortunately, not many forums offer a "like" or "up-vote" system for guest or anonymous users. I've tried registering for many of the forums, but I ended up feeling more like a spammer than a genuine Hero-U enthusiast. I'd recommend only posting on these forums if you are already an established user or are interested in becoming a regular user on that forum.

Thank you all for your support!!

I have another reddit search to add, which turns up a few different ones from the one listed earlier (including some just posted today & could really use votes):
http://www.reddit.co...o...on&sort=new

A discussion thread where you must prove non-bot-ness but do not need a registered account:
http://www.gamingonl...ion.1094/page-2

An article on current Linux-supporting kickstarters (Hero U at top of the list) that allows comments from members:

An article that allows comments without a registered account (just needs mod approval):

Could use some help requesting a site to cover Hero U:

http://www.ubuntuvib...submit-tip.html

One or two of us have requested, but a few more might help them realize it's a pretty popular project. As you can see they have already covered Distance and Sir You are Being Hunted, so they are not against covering kickstarters who promise Linux support.

Another place where someone could help out, if they have a battlenet account (i.e. you play WoW, Starcraft, or Diablo)

"Hidden Gems of Gaming"
http://us.battle.net...opic/7004696372

Please mention QfG there with an obligatory link to Hero U. I can't really do it properly myself as I'm looking forward to Hero U but haven't played QfG yet (waiting for my QfG download codes from Hero U rewards!)

Most articles/interviews/etc have token icons for cross-promoting through social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Google+, etc. It's easier to quickly click through the list and increase the counters for these social networking sites than it is with forum registering and responding. I'm hoping that by encouraging social networking clicks that the related Hero-U articles will begin or continue to trend on its respective site or associated social networking site.

I sent in a tip to ubuntu vibes. Has anyone submitted to Slashdot on the Linux angle?

As far as I know the social media counters only mildly affect the visibility of the article's related facebook post. The other major factors are volume of posts from that profile/group and recency of the post. Facebook won't put week-old posts high up in someone's feed even if they have thousands of likes and shares, for example, and what if they posted on something else several times after that? There's also the issue of whether a given individual would notice it given a fast moving feed and so on and so forth.

Whereas bumping a forum post on a high traffic board, even an old one, brings it to the front page. I still think this (and posting a new thread on a new forum) is more effective in reaching new eyeballs than social media.

Whereas bumping a forum post on a high traffic board, even an old one, brings it to the front page. I still think this (and posting a new thread on a new forum) is more effective in reaching new eyeballs than social media.


Absolutely! By all means, everyone should be bumping threads. I was just pointing out that it's easier (time-wise) to support the articles/interviews/etc. instead of registering and posting for every forum reference I included on the Luxurious List of Links™. After registering and posting on a dozen forums, I was feeling a little spammy and thought I'd warn others.
Either way, throwing some Internet traffic to every site on the Luxurious List of Links™ is the least supporters could do for these sites. Good counterpoint though.
