It might be worth putting something on reddit.

    I have only seen one post about the game on reddit and they have a HUGE gaming base. If you get the right post title and link to the right content you can potentially reach tens of thousands of gamers. It can be a bit hit and miss though. Visibility is based on likes, and likes are often based on visibility.

    I believe we have a couple of people that occasionally use Reddit, I am not one of them. There have been a couple of posts about us from time to time. You are of course, welcome to post there too if you wish.

    Personally, I am not a big fan of Reddit. There are some good people there I am sure, and a lot of good material, but you have to wade through a lot of other stuff that isn't to find it. Just my two doubloons worth.

    We had a good post on there in the Oculus subreddit with my vid. A lot of people liked it with very little backlash (thankfully). Posting in more popular subreddits is a crapshoot with 1 or 2 good posts and the rest are people complaining that "the water should be more blue, but not too blue", or "the wood looks too wood-like" and such. I have seen the BlackWake dev posting on there to some success, but he also actively keeps up with the thread, which I really don't have the time to do.

    (Digging up my ages old account here.)

    Any exposure is still exposure right? If you do not agree with that the water should be more blue, then so be it right? You still have countless of other people getting aware of this amazing project. I've been silently watching this project for a long while now and I really love the progress.

    So I say: do not hesitate with posting it on Reddit. The website has a lot of users who rarely post but look all the time, so it's a good place for exposure. :)
