Hey everyone,

I work for GameTrailers http://www.gametrailers.com
and we love indy games.
We've hosted trailers for The Marionette http://www.gametrailers.com/gamepage.php?id=4156

Limbo
http://www.gametrailers.com/gamepage.php?id=3310

MR. Stump's Dentures 2
http://www.gametrailers.com/gamepage.php?id=4418

and more.  We've also cut gameplay edits for games like Clean Asia!
http://www.gametrailers.com/gamepage.php?id=4292

and Penumbra Overture
http://www.gametrailers.com/gamepage.php?id=3388

So I just want you guys to know, we'll host your trailer compelte with link backs to your site, and you can even re-embed them on your sites in flash (and we serve at a higher bit rate than youtube)

If you don't have a trailer and want a gameplay edit, its a possibilty as well.  So PM here or email me at ryans/at\gametrailers/dot\com

Ooh, I've noticed trailers popping up on your most excellent website so it's great that you've popped in here!

Always great to see indie games getting shown alongside titles like Bioshock, etc. Smiley

Haha, I can't imagine anything less appealing than my beardy face leering out of the screen and admonishing players for having the gall for downloading something which doesn't 100% tie into what I'd like to play. Wink

Ta', though, but I waste enough time on it already and making visuals to accompany it would require me to quit my job, and I'm fairly certain if I do that they'll stop paying me. The shits.

And Dr Ashen has been around for a while (certainly before me), although he solely concentrates on bits of electronic tat like the PopStation or Neo Double. I quite like him for the most part.

dayeight, I'm just gonna go ahead and state that your websites primary audience sems to have some form of allergy to anything that doesn't have a modern shader to go along with its advanced 3 dimensional engine. Note that most indie games don't have either.

real art looks like the mona lisa or a halo poster and is about being old or having your wife die and sometimes the level goes in reverse

None of them are mine, but I thought I'd post them anyway Embarrassed

I've noticed that too, although maybe GT will attract more of an indie-loving crowd if more and more indie stuff appears on there?  Smiley

Just remember, there's no such thing as bad exposure. Any time you can have a couple thousand gamers look at your game it's never a bad thing. For all you know it's the vocal minority posting comments.

it's all going to be man on the street gorilla style, so if yr there, stop by and speak up.  as for the comments on GT, yeah, if it's not Halo, it prolly won't get a good comment, but i know Marionette got a bunch of extra demo d/ls after we put it up, so exposure is still good. 

also the Aquaria trailer broke into are top ten, and people seem pretty happy with it.

With a name like that, sexual harassment claims must be at an all time high.  Huh?
