Gamespot still doesn't know this game exists.

I will officially stop flogging this dead horse from now on, but I'm gonna say it again : you need a PR guy.

There is a website called showmethegames.com you should check out, i don't know if you can get on board but it's worth trying.

Also, for France you have
    Gamekult.com
    Jeuxvideo.fr
    Jeuxvideo.com
    Gameblog.fr
    Joueurdugrenier.fr (Think french angry video game nerd but he posts about games he likes too)

Be warned they review games on the spot (Gamekult already reviewed Terraria giving 7/10) so you may want to have everything nice and clear before reaching out to them

edit : typos and more websites

I would try G4tv.com they do more AAA then anything, but, I do frequently see mention of indie titles. As well as Gametrailers.com and Epicbattleaxe.com Hope it helps

Great, thanks for the extra PR contacts. I will reach out to them soon. Getting the word out on SPAZ is quite a struggle, but your help is well, helpful.

Don't know if it has been mentionned already but www.outofeight.info reviews a lot of indie games. He's not mincing his words though so it might be worth waiting until the next beta :)

Another couple of sites which u could try.

www.insidegamer.nl
www.pu.nl (This is actually a dutch gamer magazine, but it might be interesting to get a review or preview of this game in their mag, mainly since it's one of the bigger read mags about games.
www.gamer.nl
www.gamez.nl

I noticed you haven't been paying attention to your IndieDB account much. You haven't even posted content about the bounty hunter update or modding tools. http://www.indiedb.com/games/space-pira ... mbies-spaz

What about the Unity folks themselves? SPAZ was awarded with a GOTY award, they would probably like to showcase SPAZ 2 since it's featuring their game engine.

I think you are already planning a Facebook page with campaigns giving out free coupons and such.
When you are ready to showcase some screenshots of SPAZ 2 you should start posting on an official FB page, and announce initially some SPAZ 1 coupon giveaway days, to drum it up, before SPAZ 2 gets finished.

Also, you should check the Endless Space development team, website, forums etc. They have this awesome culture of interacting with the customers and setting up polls for the core audience to vote for what they want to see in the game. Since launch they already added 4 expansions to the game adding features, most of which the community voted for, and what they added from their own brain was good too.

I know that's a demanding work and it may be too much for a 2-ppl dev team. But a voting poll here and there would be so nice to have on and after development to gather input. Polls are more quantifiable than just reading the forum posts. The posts give quality explanations, the polls quantify how many fans are standing up for an idea.

Personally I prefer everything to stay away from FB as much as possible. As for polls, well, as much as i like SPAZ, i don't think it's big enough to muster enough voters to justify it.
