Hi,

I try to design games with pedegocial messages regarding ecology. Do you have any advices on how to communicate for this kind of games to find an audience ? 

Do you know dedicated websites or streamers interested by the ecology and indie games ?

Regards !

For thoose interested by a game inspired by Pac Man but with the goal to save species: https://store.steampowered.com/app/1502570
I can offer Steam keys if you want to share on it ;-)
This game includes pedagocial species descriptions and eco gesture advices ;-).

I'm not a marketing expert. But, from talks I've seen around similar Indie topics is that getting YouTubers/influencers to play your game is a critical part of having your game find an audience. On top of that, maximizing the potent power of your game's appearance on the Steam app store also plays a major factor.

This page that does a critical analysis of Steam tags can be useful in making sure your game is tagged for the right people https://quanticfoundry.com/2018/01/24/visualizing-steam-tags-related/

Greetings! We are creating a digital platform for such games to enhance their reach as well working on a B2B level with highschools to convey the eco message, and engage further via eco-volunteering and eco-entrepreneurship - our website is here: www.ecomanka.net - would be glad to schedule a call to discuss it further.

Field Day Lab at University of Wisconsin - Madison is hiring a new unity game engineer. This community has been a consistent source of inspiration and camaraderie, so I’m hoping you can help us find our match.


I must reinforce that the $55k minimum salary is just that. It’s a formality of the University’s hiring process and in reality will be much higher.

I also don’t think the raw joy of this position is being expressed in the position description. We work on 4-6 projects in parallel at any one time that use games to tackle some of the most interesting problems in our world. This position would hit the ground working on a project about journalistic practices that will be distributed through PBS, a project to understand how coordination and innovation could help repair the dangerous phosphorus cycle that is killing our lakes, and a series of VR journeys to explore NSF Polar research about climate change, ecosystems and astrophysics. 

Reach out if you need anything.
