I've been on this board for a while, and I saw that post about the challenges game-makers face. The general consensus was getting your game into the public eye; one which I very much agreed with. But, nobody really had any solutions.
So, since I'm writing a program and a community for game-building, I thought I should try to find one.
What I've come up with is this: I call it AnythingIndie. Basically, you get to put your project into a drawing; every week (or some unit of time), a project is picked out using a lottery. Once you're picked, you get a spot on the front page, your own page on the website, one of the boards will be dedicated to your program, and some people will be specifically set up to review it just to make sure *someone* looks at it.
And, if you lose the lottery, you get to try again next week.
I'm not advertising this; it's not even up yet. I just want to know what you guys think. Would you use this? Would you check out/review projects? Basically, do you think this can help the problem?
Edit: I apologize if this is the wrong board for this; I wasn't absolutely sure, and this seemed to fit a few different places.
