From dev to dev: tips for promoting indie games with 0 budget from Patrick Lee, Distribution Manager at Legacy Games

I'm sure you all heard of Legacy Games, the publisher of many games based on iconic brands like Criminal Minds, Tarzan, Law & Order, Twilight Zone, Murder She Wrote, Ghost Whisperer, Psych, Paranormal State, House M.D., Jane Austen, and Crayola Songbook.

Today we bring you one of the minds behind Legacy Games, designer and distribution manager Patrick Lee. He was very kind answering a few questions for us about promoting indie games.

 Legacy Games team (From left to right): Sebastian Jennings, Patrick Lee, Frank Howell, Jamar Graham, Matteo Marjoram.

1. So far, what is the game you are most proud of and why?

The game I'm proudest to have worked on is Atlantis: Pearls of the Deep. It's very polished in all aspects, from the art, to the sound effects, music, level design, everything. It has won awards for its innovative mix of familiar match-3 gameplay and realistic physics puzzles. It's one of our most beloved, well reviewed, and successful PC and mobile titles!

2. Can you tell us, for the developers out there, how did you promote it? Or give out your 3 best tips for promoting an indie game with 0 budget.

1. Make lots of friends with people in the industry, from publishers, distributors, reviewers, or other developers. If people like you, they're more likely to promote your game in their stores or blogs or wherever.

2. Always respond to customers and fans. A little bit of good customer service goes a long way!

3. Give your game a funny, descriptive, or interesting title. It's the first thing most people will see, so catch their attention early on.

The good news is you can now purchase 7 Legacy games at special prices:

Along the way, the player may also be given other goals that they need to achieve: to retrieve priceless relics before they’re destroyed, to dig canals to drain water away from towns and cities, and chasing off enemies that block the escape routes.

The world of Atlantis can be divided to 4 main locations: The Emerald Coast, the Golden Sand, the Iron Mountains and The Capital. Each of the places is suffering from a different disaster, but players must still do everything they can to rescue the citizens of Atlantis and preserve the ancient treasures the city has guarded for a thousand years.

The player must evacuate a total of 50+ levels from the 5 different areas of Atlantis. Each area is threatened by a different natural disaster which themes the difficulties the player faces there.

Tiestru is a Unique 3d strategy game where, as the Warlock, you will fight your ruthless and evil enemy called Tiestru. Your sole aim is to save the world by protecting the Crystal of Light and this way defeat Tiestru. Tiestru is an old english word, which is altered to darkness in modern world.

In order to light up an area, you must protect the Crystal of Light also called the core till you destroy all the enemies.

For that you will have to use the power of different spells. 

Casting different spells will create different types of crystals. You can also make different crystal combinations. All these crystals can be enchanted with a powerline connection to the core! Enchanted crystals are more powerful or stronger depending on their types.

Furthermore, You can combine and superpose these cubic crystals as you want and obtain interesting constructions depending on your strategy and your imagination. With these crystals you can shape the warfare scene as it was your playground. You can use them as walls, or you can make longer paths for the enemy.

But they may chose to crack your crsytals, if they think the way gets too long ;)

In Tiestru, you will test your warlock skills through cities and deep dungeons. With additional 2 different hardness mode, you will be able to unlock the secret levels which are called 'stairs to hell'
and 'devils quadrant'.

Last but not least you have got limited resources. But you can build generators under rarely found light rays in deep dungeons. Then you may collect some extra resources.

Everything is up to you! Determine your strategy! Just burn the enemy or, teleport them and gain time. Or use build defensive bases, and collect extra resources for a hard bash!

Don't forget, you have got limited resources, that's why in order to build the perfect structure you must take into the consideration different aspects.

Orc entrance and exit points, walls, pillars, light generation areas, crystal's color and quantity are the key elements in your decision for your success.

Make reasonable choices Warlock. Good luck.
