(Unofficial) Headquarters of Infinity:Battlescape Communications - Volunteers needed!

I know we as fan base can do something to get the KS known… but isn’t it also INovae’s responsability to get those “big medias” attention?

Sure, sending too much e-mails about “check this awesome game” is better than too little; but will those medias react to a email from a “casual community member”? How can we say we’re not encroaching on INovae’s turf about how they want to handle the given information?

Maybe a word from INovae on this?

I thought about that too. We need to know inovae’s position on this.

#24

It would be nice if Flavien or someone from their team contacted RockPaperShotgun, it’s a pretty big gaming related news site that could bring in some new supporters.

I will talk to my buddy board gamer. Maybe just maybe you might be willing to do a short video.

#26

I think this could be our answer.

We already tried and haven’t got much attention, unfortunately. Although they might have a lot of inertia, and it’s only the third day of the campaign, so who knows. All I can say is that as far as contacts are concerned, we currently aren’t in touch with any major media.

We contacted over 100 major sites if I remember well, and they were obviously on the list. No success just yet.

What might be worthwhile is contacting other popular “lets players”. They have huge audiences.

I have talked to around 30 friends/acquantances/colleagues at this point. All of them like games (I’m in a gamedev industry),
What has worked much better for me personally in terms of making people interested in project, is to show them the material in this order:

  1. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JIQb_P7crG8&feature=youtu.be&t=268
  2. I-Novae: Engine Screenshot Thread!
  3. https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/309114309/infinity-battlescape

At first i showed them material in the opposite order, and it had much lesser impact.

TL;DR: most of people I know got hooked better on the prototype video, than kickstarter page.

Also, how about BBC’s Kate Russell. She loves Elite, wrote a book and done long livestreams on Elite. So she’s a space game fan already.

Best way to contact her is to send her a tweet on twitter to check out the KS campaign and game website.

I made my article on developpez.com, if accepted, it will be for a few days on the main page of the site. All of this is cool, but while there’s no much volunteers I waste my time.

JonnyRedHed you’re on Star Citizen and try to contact Kate Russel ?
Lucas what is your target ?
Mine will be “lets players” and Gamekult. If I-Novae is ok, I’ll tell them that they can play it by contacting you.

Is there any volunteers ? If we’re a lot, it could be a success.

#34

I just did an interview with Flavien, in french, I’m editing it right now. Could be usefull for french speaking people/journalists who wants to know more about the game.

#35

I’ll link it on developpez.com if you agree. Do you plan to post it somewhere on the net ?

#36

I’ll post it there : https://www.youtube.com/user/InfinityUniverseFr

Sorry, I’m not sure I understood you fully… volunteer for what?

Also, you can add an “@” in front of names (the site will suggest some auto-completion). This way, the pinged persons will receive notifications and see the post containing the ping (which is their surname ^^).

#38

volunteers to target a media and try to make them react to I:B. Sorry I though it was obvious.
