Were working on our next "big" project after Tales from the Voidhttp://store.steampowered.com/app/419590/
The new project is a atmosphere heavy simultaneous Turn-Based Tactics Game (a bit like Frozen Synaps), with combat and storytelling.
For this new project, we are planning to do more intensive alpha process with external testers, polls and feedback etc. Also we would like to do some community building and if we could even use it to attract some early press/youtubers/twitch interest, it would be nice.
So my question is:What are your experiences with this and what is your preferred platform for it?
I know that some are using FB as their main communication platform. Others again are building their own mini-website with a forum. - both with the well known advantages and disadvantages they bring.
Others are using existing and targeted websites, e.g. http://www.indiedb.com/
- where I do not know the details about the effectiveness of it.
Others again are focussing on twitter/reddit and youtube/snapchat channels (but thats mostly for visiblity - where do they redirect to, after "catching peoples attention" on those?)
So what is people experience, impression and oppinion?
Any tips will be greatly appreciated.
