    I've seen a few threads with good marketing advice but it always seems to change year to year. What's everyone's advice or plans for getting a game "Known" in 2021?

    I like your options, "Getting Published by a bigger company" is the most difficult option but for sure will bring good results

    I was thinking of making forum threads in a few gaming forums that people can actively see. With traditional forums, whenever a thread updates, it will usually be listed as the "last" updated forum. Through that, you can put in your game dev logs and stuff like that.

    Nice and helpful post. It would take a lot of effort and guts to get published by a bigger company. But if the game is damn good, then the game will speak by itself.
