Geez, is the gaming niche this hard?

Post by Luigi1632 on 2010-10-19, 13:26

Well, I'm still having a bit of a rough time with my forum, I mean I'm aiming my forum's focus towards a specific game(Akatsuki Blitzkampf) and pretty much my game in development..

I mean most of my forum's posts seem to be in the off-topic section(this is what I loathe) and not enough posts are in the gaming areas...

I mean, I'm not giving up on my forum, but I chose the gaming niche, because I'm a gamer myself..

What do you mean "The new gaming forum"?

I'm talking about my current forum, The Blitzkampf.

I don't think the game your site is based on is very popular world wide.

Yes, I know that.

and that's why I'm trying to get more people to know about Akatsuki Blitzkampf...

I've posted videos of the game that I have uploaded on YouTube, I've made general discussion topics about the game, I even made a little combo video/tutorial.

Well, I mean the off-topic section, for some reason seems to be the most popular area, WHEN the popular area should be the gaming area.

I mean, it seems everybody's about "off-topic", rather than gaming.

Off topic is easier than talking about an unfinished game.

But Luigi, I think the point everyone is trying to make is that you can't expect a forum in which the main focus is talking about your game to be active before the game is even released.

Its like, how popular would a forum about flying cars be?

Considering all the futurist fanatics and some youtube videos around, flying cars could be popular enough. *coughes* xD

But yeah, that is the thing the main focus of your forum is a game we don't know much and your projects. I am also afraid we cannot really ask you to post a link to download it, as much as I think it could help others take the step and actually giving themselves the opportunity to get to know it.

Maybe looking for those few outside the boards that know of the game through other communities to show your place could catch more the poster oriented to the areas you want them to be.

It must be frustrating though. I have seen how hard you work to make it as interesting as possible for your members. >.<

I would advise you to try something different. The gaming niche is becoming too hard now, you won't get anywhere unless you've got a good few hundred dollars to invest to make it good.

Yes, you have made that clear, but what we are trying to explain is, the reason your forum is not doing so well in terms of activity is simply because it is based on a game that has not yet been completed.

I would have suggested waiting until the game was finished for you to open the forum, but it is obviously too late for that. The only I can suggest at this point is either...

1: Finishing the game as quickly as possible to draw in interest.

or

2: Changing the general topic of your forum all together. Perhaps gaming in general?

-_-

Luigi, I don't think you are understanding correctly. Your forum is not going to be active until you either change things around, or finish the game. You just aren't going to be able to find that many people to come and chat about a future game. No offense intended, but it just wont happen.

Well, I mean I can't make a release date for the game, because it would be a bad idea.

I'm trying to put as much progress in my game, as I can...
