Crowfall viral marketing on Imgur

Recommended Posts

Take some awesome combat footage that is relatively clean and straightforward and not too much of a cluster-f@*! that people can't understand what's happening. I'm sure if we make gifs / webm's out of it and post it on places like Imgur we can also do a little to promote the game / pimp our guilds at the same time on places like imgur.

would be helpful if the update to the new look of crowfall website had not accidentally disabled the vast majority of their past news articles from being viewable... can't even link people to these comic releases or the update about vessels and crows for example...

seriously @Pann, it is an embarrassing mess from a web management / marketing stand point.

here is an incomplete sample of 13th jan 2015 to 30th may 2017 - 418 news articles over 2 years 4 months 18 days. there are more recent ones that were also lost. (e.g. that banking article from October for example)

all now unviewable and fading from google

Not a bad idea @DocHollidaze

The idea of something is often much better a marketing tool than showing the actual thing itself.

Personally, I find the story and imagery of this comic they made more interesting than the current gameplay.

Holy hell. Yes, please, more of this thing that I saw forever ago and entirely forgot about.

Kinda reminds me of FreakAngels, which had a pretty similar aesthetic and a similarly rabid following.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_release_life_cycle#Pre-alpha <--this is where we are. If your complaint is that the game don't not works good, come back later.
