Dude. You never understood. I am as structured as they come. I program for a living. You always had it backwards.

One day you'll see my work, and when that day comes I think a lot of things will click for you, regarding our previous discussions. Though those discussions were stimulating regardless. Thank you. Tongue.

That's a really awesome approach Graham. I just referred someone to your post to help them out with writing a blurb for their game's website.

i tend to think elevator pitches are less important nowadays because of the proliferation of youtube trailers. it's easier to just embed a trailer of your game on your site than write a few sentences about it; most people visiting the site will skip the sentences anyway

however, this is what eva has written for SD's website right now:

one-sentence

Save your friends. Save your enemies. Save yourself.

one-paragraph

Saturated Dreamers is an open-world adventure game set on Lake, a sentient ice planet that holds many secrets from expeditionists Mercedes and co. Players assume control of the Leda, a ship equipped with unique gadgets that can be used to solve puzzles, befriend creatures, and purify Lake's waters.

looking over it now, expeditionists kind if is too easily mistaken for exhibitionists tho, so it's probably not the best word to use there, but this isn't final

The elevator pitch was always meant as more of an exercise than something directly practical. If you had one day to live what would you do? Not so that when the day comes you'll be prepared, but so you'll know what to do when you have many days. Exercise. Not practical, only sometimes. Exercise.

It might be a bit long?

I think the elevator pitch is still important because you need to get people to click on the trailer in the first place.

Immortal Defense's one line summary doesn't describe the game at all, and would not make a reasonable elevator pitch, either to investors or prospective players.

I agree that 'expeditionist' reads oddly.  It's a legitimate but little-used word.  I'd say 'Mercedes and her expedition'.  Also, when pitching at players, using 'you' rather than 'players' may be more engaging.
