help with "marketing" (PR)

Since the project just got it's 0.1 release, we could use some help with spreading out the word.
So get some of your friends to try out the pre-alpha over at www.AncientBeast.com/game or play along with them on the same computer, as hotseat is supported for now.
Also, if you have a blog or know someone who does, a small article about this would do good, similar to http://www.freegamer.blogspot.com/2012/ ... first.html
Other methods (fb/twitter/g+) also nice ^^

Listing it up on game databases always helps. LGDB, Html5games IGDB etc are all leads. Also spreading it on popular forums such as the Dwarf Fortress forums etc also help. Reddit is also an option.

Thanks, going to look into that. Usually I'm staying away from reddit because it looks very ancient in a bad way :D but I know it's pretty popular.

Hey DK, you see this thread on OGA?

http://opengameart.org/forumtopic/can-p ... r-palapeli

Shirish is looking for CC-By or CC-By-SA art to create a puzzle collection for Palapeli - you should think about adding some of your concept art to the project. Palapeli gets some really pretty new puzzles, AB gets exposure to a new FOSS-friendly audience, everyone wins.

Thanks for the suggestion, really love seeing AB stuff in other games, movies etc, especially if attribution is properly respected. I have OGA account as I post there stuff from the project from time to time (AB is affiliate), so I'll leave him a message right away.
