So the past few weeks I have been researching around everywhere about selling flash games, and marketing techniques, and so far as I am getting closer and closer to selling my first game. However with all this research I have been left with a few questions:
1.) I am in the beta testing stage for my game can I upload my game anywhere for my friends to test without compromising the chance of a sponsorship?
2.)I still haven't decided whether to use FGL or to directly talk to the sponsors. I don't expect my game to get caught up in a "bidding war" but I feel that I might make the wrong move talking to the sponsors as I don't have much idea of what my game is worth or how to deal with these things (it's my first time y'know).
3.) How do secondary sponsorships work? And how do you go about getting one?
4.) What are the best
ways to promote my game (Or should I even bother)? My game is a small yet addicting game, should I make a trailer, should I start a website or blog and on it promote my game/future games?
5.) Got any other important tips?
Thanks in advance for any advice,
I hope this gives a good idea of my knowledge gaps.
