Joined: Jun 17, Posts: 5. I know that I need to advertise and promote my games in order to get some downloads but I don't have a budget. So, is there any other way to increase the downloads? I've published 3 new games this week and even the sum of the downloads are below Joined: Dec 26, Posts: 7, Take a look at the Works In Progress and Showcase forums here on this website. As you said you alone just published 3 new games this week. Now imagine if there were hundreds of thousands of other people perhaps even a million or more people all doing the same thing because most of them won't even be on these forums.

Now stop imagining and realize that is exactly what is happening. Basically nobody could possibly play all of these games being released even if they wanted to and because there are so many being released you need to give them a reason to want to play your game. And you need them to know your game even exists. Basically lots of people are too busy making and publishing their own games to play your games.

Lots of other people are too busy playing one or more of the hundreds of thousands of other games out there. Lots of other people don't even know your game exists. Some people may have seen your game and meant to check it out later when they had more time but unfortunately by the point they had more time they had already seen dozens of other games and completely forgot about your game and the others they saw earlier.

What makes you stand out from the crowd? There are MANY games to choose from and you must offer something unique and attractive to bring in more people. Quingu , Sep 11, RavenOfCode likes this.

I have no clue. EvilGremlin , Sep 12, Joined: Jan 16, Posts: I usually decide to download after 3 step 1. Icon, if the icon caught my eye, I will proceed to step 2, else, to the next game Screen shots, if the screen shots caught my attention, I will proceed to step 3, else, I'll just push back button Gameplay video, I usually check the gameplay video to see if the gameplay is interesting or not, also when the screenshots are too good to be true on mobile device yeah, lots of game on playstore do this 'not-from-game HD console quality graphics" that really different from the game , if the screenshot are too good but no gameplay video, I'll pass As for your game, I think most of them except the color lane pass step 1, but unfortunately, from the screenshots, I can tell that the game mechanics have been done to death endless jumper and flappy bird The firefly's adventure graphics are quite good actually, it's just that the gameplay is not interesting anymore Joined: Jul 11, Posts: I've also released a game a week ago.

I still have no more than 7 downloads after alot of advertising in communities and forums. I know my game is not the best but I can't even get downloads. I'm wondering if it's even possible to launch a game without money for ad compaign. Rotzak , Sep 12, Joined: Sep 12, Posts: 4.

But as others have said, you need I see this with larger games everyone copies each other Horrible idea..

So stand out from the rest Joined: Sep 13, Posts: 1. Upload it on itch. Joined: Aug 16, Posts: Before reading on, please understand I'm not trying to be negative here, so I'll start by saying you should always remember that to actually design, develop, and publish a game is in itself an achievement to be proud of, but Digital marketplaces are quite possibly the most difficult places ever conceived of to get noticed in I'm talking about the likes of Google Play here, can't comment on Steam or suchlike.

The basic problem stems from the fact that you are going straight onto a global platform, whichever one s you choose, and there are very few stepping stones along the way.

Even if you assume that your platforms of choice offer a level playing field, the bar you must get over to get noticed is immensely high.

Remember you are competing with some of the biggest development studios in the world, who are able to spend eye-watering amounts of money to ensure they remain at the top of the recommended lists, and very few users venture beyond these lists think in terms of exponential drop off rates. If you want to work in the games industry then keep writing, keep publishing, always strive to improve, and use your work as a portfolio to prove your abilities. If your work is good enough it will give you an opportunity to get noticed and you might get your dream career by the way, I've long since lost the drive and determination to do this, and just write games from time to time because I enjoy programming.

It's also worth thinking about a peculiar aspect of the business model behind the app stores - millions of underperforming 'free' apps all running ads but never quite reaching the payout threshold of the advertising platform, meaning a whole load of absolutely free advertising space for said advertising platform, which often just happens to be the same company as the app store itself.

In this world, nobody cares about you and your work. I know this is painful but this is where we all stand. It takes a lot of work to get people to notice you, and even more work to make them appreciate your work. Please don't give up! Just keep at it! Like everyone else here, I don't want to be negative, but I want you to be realistic. Just do it for what you believe in, not for what you want others to believe in.

If you do, you will eventually stand out and maybe, one day, it will pay off. Good luck!

The most awesome game possible could only have a conversionRate of 1, no greater, so there quickly comes a point where making the game better has little to no effect. If only 5 people see it you'll get 5 downloads.

It's mostly marketing, unfortunately, not so much how awesome the game is, which is why the big AAA games everyone knows about have advertising budgets in the millions sometimes tens of millions of dollars. Sadly, when I put in the effort I get more sales through my off-Steam marketing than I can through Steam itself pretty easily.

Good luck. I put an app on the appstore and dropped the whole mobile thing immediately upon seeing the results. Last edited: Oct 23,

Horrible idea. Take a look at the Works In Progress and Showcase forums here on this website. Most of advertisement comes from word of mouth.
