    Hey you beautiful developers! We started learning Unity Feb of this year and after working on this non-stop we're finally able to say we are less than a month away from release. Our game is up on STEAM now and we've heard many things about how you should have atleast 4-5k wishlists before launching to have a successful first week / first month.

    Here is our Steam page -

    Here is the official trailer -


    We've tried social media, game dev forums, reddit, etc... Is there anything else that we could benefit from heavily for our type of game? Thanks in advance guys, keep on game dev'ing!

    Promoting on forums like these and other gaming forums/sites does help. Like for instance (without trying to promote), we allow developers to share their game/work with our community forums. Link in signature. So any places that offer that kind of service really. Try facebook and twitter, they seem to be very populated! Gaming Forums
