Litte bit inspared by topic How Should Obsidian Market Pillars of Eternity So I've got some idea, about how to try marketing PoE or make it potential market bigger. Maybe, not the most brightest one under the sun, but hey, it still something. 1. Portrait Contest on DeviantArt. Why? + Players could have easly access of hundreds, if not thousand of portraits in good proportions to choose between in every possible combination of race, subrace and gender (even for aumana or orlan) + Deviantart is "massive" in comparison to other art sites: average artist have around 100 followers. It also have many young users: while PoE seems to be temporarily famous mostly by older players, but how many of them played in BG, Fallout or Torment as teenagers? + Fantasy portrait is comparatively easiest thing to draw, many artist would probably try it. + Blizzard have done something like this on dA two times (And the level of the submited artworks was really hight). So it is probably cost effective. + It probably the most nice way to promote new IP - Need serious prizes for participants. - And consultation with Deviant CEO. I don't know if they take cash for this kind of promotion, but it sound very probably. - Response from art community may be too small 2. Make a level of dificulity "I'm here only for story, and I'm afraid of anything that move, or looks like it could move, or is suspicious un-moving." + sats of every monster would be dumped to 10% of standard one + or give just one monster in place of bunch? Less enemies in wilderness would look more natural, realistic, wich may affect positivly immersion - It should be irreversible option: once turned on, couldn't be redone. But player could chose it before game, or while playing. Making it easly switchable option, would be tempting for normal player "to cheat gently" the game, and may broke for him fun out the gameplay. Despite everything fight shouldn't be cut off from whole game. (Evil part of my plan is to make personaly one entry, but shhh... you didn't readed this. Second part is to borrow PoE for my book-oriented friends, and convice them, that games could be good, "Come to the Dark Side, we have Goat Simulator, and Pillar of Eternity!" ) Sorry, for my English.
