Spreading the word

Post by loboLoco » Tue Jul 22, 2008 4:26 pm

Since WolfQuest launched last December, several hundred thousand people have downloaded the game! (And that's just first-time players--it doesn't include all the times our faithful players download game updates.) But that's not enough for us. We want even more people to hear about the game and give it a try. So we'd like to ask all of you to help us spread the word.

"Word of mouth" is the best advertising, so if you like the game, we hope you'll tell your friends. If you have your own blog or web site, add a link to the WolfQuest site. If you're on Facebook, join the WQ group (search for WolfQuest: the official game group). And if you have favorite game-related web sites, post a link on their forums about WolfQuest. (Way back in early 2007, that's how many people first heard about the game, from links on several game forums such as Zoo Tycoon.)

How else can you spread the word? Share your ideas here!

thanks for all your help!

personally, I get a lot of people asking about what the game is just by wearing a WQ T-shirt around everywhere.

Yeah. I plan on doing just that [[getting a t-shirt and wearing it around all day to see how many people will ask about it]]

I talked to one of my friends to play WQ. Wasn't very hard cuz she loves wolves. :roll:

Spread the word?

Well, I've started the wikipedia page for WolfQuest. It's now the 13th search result on google. Hopefully that helps a bit.

But I think a good method are viral videos on YouTube. Way to go sora!

:D I'll think I'll try to tell all my friends about it. That is the best way that I can do anyway.

Viral Videos are online videos which gain mass popularity through Internet Sharing, such as entertainment websites, e-mail messages or suggesting a friend watch it. Heavy.com and Youtube.com are two well-known examples of media sharing websites which contain viral videos.
"I posted this vid of me and my friends lighting off fireworks in our pants and its all over the web man"! his video has become a 'viral video'

I told my whole class about it. When people said the game is stupid I gave them my evil stare. And I told my Dean, and the librarian :) (It got the wolfquest website un-blocked from our server)
Perhaps you wanted someone else?

I have told a few of my friends but they haven't really gotten into the whole being-a-wolf thing. Although my friend told me about WQ and I love it!

The idea's are all great guys, it's good to get more people interested so them more people will help donate some money to the team to make more episodes and things.
