Title: [Labyrinths & Lycanthropes] New release & marketing advice
Post by: Joe J Prince on July 20, 2009, 05:37:18 AM
Hi there all, just wanted to give the heads up on my latest game : Labyrinths & Lycanthropes (http://www.princeofdarknessgames.com/L&L.htm).

A RPG of Loot & Legends!

It's a pacey comedic dungeon bash with spectacular cover art from Remi Treuer. If you liked Drowning & Falling or Dungeon Squad, you'll get a kick out of L&L. Rotating GM duties, random labyrinth generation and healthy player competition make this a pretty gamey offering.

Anyway, I love designing games but I'm not so great on the publishing side and when it comes to marketing I plain old suck! I was wondering what people's thoughts are about me running a competition to help market the game. Part of play is designing maps, big bads and minions, so hopefully I could incorporate those elements, get things emerging from AP.

So do folk at the Forge think running something along those lines would be a good idea? And what about prizes is cash money exciting enough?

Thanks for looking!
Cheers
Joe

Rather than cash could you do merchandise?

People who would join your contest are half way sold and can be word of mouth minions for future marketing.

Just a thought.
