Download.com or Press Releases?
I was wondering what the game makers think I should do next?
At this time I am considering one of two options: puting my game on
Download.com or sending out press releases.
I've heard that Download.com doesn't deliver much in the way of sales for
games, so I was thinking of spending the money on press releases. Has anyone had experience with both? If so what do you think I should do?
I have listed my audio software "Replay" on download.com and I must say it wasn't worth the money.
Don't know how download.com works for games, but at this time i had decided not to list my new game Psychoballs on download.com.
Just short note - the answer from upload.com support:
"The details for annual Basic Listings are being ironed out right now. At this time, we don't have the answer to that question, however we will annouce it via Upload.com as soon as we do."
The question was how/when are they going to charge for that annual period.
Do both! Sending out press releases by email is free, and once you've built up a decent contact list by examining relevant magazines and web sites it hardly takes any time at all.

One thing I didn't like the look of was the section where I would list my game.
There is page after page of Neverwinter Nights and The Elder Scrolls III addons and mods and they seem to be designed to block out the competition.
I asked one of the people from Download.com about it today (I am still waiting for a reply). I don't see why I would want to spend $79 for a listing if no one can find it.
Oops! I just found the links that let you filter the file types displayed. They really need to make them larger so the average user will see them.
