June 23, 2016 -- Day 534
After the end of Beta hosting on June 20, here's my report & evaluations.
Since my Google analytics no longer show the stats correctly, so I use the old trusty web-counter. This time I traced numbers of unique visitors... (should've use 'number of visits')
It's merely about 70 unique visits... over the hosting period of 3 weeks...
I wasn't pushing my advertising hard enough. And sometimes it's just too hard to notice my promotional posts on social medias.
I got only a few but constructive comments (thanks to some of your praises).
Their critiques are basically:
Fortunately these are not very hard issues.
Nobody says anything about the art/music, which kind of sad for me. I guess they really are not impressive enough... Oh well.
A Reflect On My Promoting
I don't know but... I wasn't very keen on promoting the game. (At that time I was busy pushing to ver0.8 update...Maybe I am a bit tired.) Well honestly, I did lose some degree of motivation. The passion was not there. I felt very reluctant of the promotional updates. It was not a good energy & attitude... :(
I'm still passionate in my work though.
By the way, I did not make any teasers or trailer videos for this beta release. But I will definitely make one game trailer!
I really hope I will - at that next time - really pushing myself out of comfort zone and go a bit more beyond what I did before, on advertising & networking.
That's about it! I will update the plans for game development on next month.
