Help Cyan getting to E3 ! - IndiesCrashE3

Postby WeldFord » Sat Apr 11, 2015 9:56 am

For those who are not on the Facebook group : we nominated Obduction for the Indie Crash E3. They are a group that aims to send independant developpers to promote their game at E3 with a presence there and press interviews.

http://indiescrashe3.com/nomination/CE3 ... E173AF1DBC

Right now Obduction is at the 16th position and the first five nominees will be brought there.
So we need you to increase the score !

How can you do it ?

You just have to register here with your email. You will receive a private link to a extremely addictive game where you have to click to give points to Obduction.

This competion is won by being a lot of fans in the game and this is the only chance for Cyan to go to E3 and promote Obduction there. Plus, the game is really fun, so don't hesiste ! :D

Unfortunately, E3 has become a cesspool of marketers stroking their own egos instead if a showcase of anything worthwhile. I'm not sure if it's worth the effort, since the people that E3 is aimed at are by no means the same folks that will enjoy Obduction. Do we really want a crowd of teenaged Call of Duty addicts posting bad reviews because Obduction's puzzles are too hard and there's not enough explosions? Ultimately, if setting up the presentation and flying out to E3 adds anything significant to Cyan's already stellar workload, I think they should stay home.

If Cyan has a desire to have a presence at E3 then an Indies Crash invitation would save them about $30k for a stand. If they've no particular wish to be there, e.g. they think E3 has the wrong demographic, then it's maybe a wasted effort, but since I think it was Mystdee who made the nomination I'm guessing she checked with Cyan first.

The nomination was suggested by Ryan so I think Cyan is pretty much ok with that ;)

Fortunately E3 is not all about that :)
Here are some games that were at E3 last year, that made great impression to the press and that (I believe) would share a part of the Obduction's public :
    Grim Fandango Remastered
    No Man's Sky
    Sherlock Holmes : Crimes & Punishments
    Ori and the Blind Forest
    The Witness
    Never Alone
    Project Spark
    Nero
    The Talos Principale
    + some Teltale Games

Plus, E3 is not for the consumer but the press to know about the game and follow it more attentively and then talk about it when it comes out.

After seeing an FB post by Greydragon, I made a nomination as did several other people OHB arranged to have them all consolidated so they will all go to the same overall numbers we are holding our own with the people we have on it now but the more people we get really working it the better the chance we will have to over come the leaders, who are also holding their own so far. . . .

You might also want to share this in other places, such as the MOULa forums.

Ryan posted it in the FB Obduction group page. . . . then later changed it to reflect the link that leads to the consolidated Indie support

I'm at 4,343,700+, but don't know if that is even a significant number. Should I keep going or give it up?

Just broke 6,000,000 but 75-year old fingers are getting tired!

Just broke 13,000,000... the avocado tree didn't get trimmed today. :)

What is the point of having to do over a dozen "recaptchas" in a row?
Or am i the only one with this particular problem?

No, you are not. I have been trying to get into the game this morning and the "I am not a robot" procedure repeated over 1 dozen times. It's useless. Maybe they have been hacked.

Yeah, it seems to be broken at the moment. It was working earlier.

Seems to be fixed now, but a bit slow.
