Indies! Would you like some help promoting your game?
Consider sending me a reviewer copy. Why?
It's not about me trying to score free games. I want to support indies, and you guys need to be paid. If I enjoy the game, I often purchase a copy anyway (as a gift or prize).
There are so many games out there that even if I played every minute of every day I would never get through them all. A reviewer copy ensures that your game will definitely receive my attention where I might otherwise have overlooked it.
Games that I receive reviewer copies of get to jump my queue. I know early reviews matter for indies and I try to deliver where I can so I will normally drop an AAA game I might be playing to review yours.
If I enjoyed it:
Your game will be reviewed on my Steam curation platform.
The curated review will be posted on my Twitter account.
Your game will also receive a positive customer review from me personally.
I'll also follow up with additional social media support (I may post screenshots of the game as I play it, and/or retweet posted related to your game that I think my audience will find interesting or entertaining, such as launch news).
I may also:
Write a full review of the game.
Be interested in conducting an interview, particularly to coincide with potential future releases.
If I did not enjoy it or am not your target audience:
I will not provide positive reviews for games that I don't enjoy. Doing so would diminish the value of my curation. However:
You will not receive a negative review.
I am happy to send you constructive feedback in private.
