As a response to developers not being able to advertising on the major gaming sites because of the prohibitive costs, a collaboration of us have united.
We are organising a band of pioneering developers who are determined to increase the public awareness of Indie games on the Xbox, Marketplace.
We have taken the bold step of booking advertising on the Official Xbox Magazine website for the month of March ‘10.
The costs of the advertising are being shared by the developers, the advertising spots are being split into six day blocks in which the games featured will have twenty thousand impressions on OXM at a fraction of the cost of advertising a single game.
Some developers are testing the waters with twenty thousand impressions and some are advertising for eighteen days and sixty thousand impressions.
In these exciting times for Xbox Indie games why not join in our band of merry men (and women) in advertising on the Official Xbox Magazine where your games can get unparalleled exposure outside the dashboard.
An example of the add can be found here, click the banner and it will take you to an example advert page.
If this is something that you would be interested in, please contact us. Or come and discuss it at our forum. You can leave a comment and I will contact you, if that is easier.
