For the last few months, I've been working on my first game, which I plan on releasing as freeware. I started a personal website and found some free hosting so I could distribute the game when it's finished. The problem is, I don't really know how I would go about spreading the word about my game once it's done.
Since this is a freeware project, I don't plan on spending any money on advertising. I just want to know how I can let people know that my game exists, and maybe even get a few people playing it. It's probably not a major concern right now, since I still have a ways to go before the game is finished, but I still hope to have some kind of idea of how I'm going to do it.
Any advice on this would be much appreciated
