    Right on, I understand! There's a "concepts" section of Greenlight that lets you put up well, a concept. It could be a way to see how much interest there is from that community, without actually having to commit to putting anything up.


    As for the commercial part, I honestly have no idea. I do see free to play games on there. Some supported by micro transactions, and others seemingly not.

    Currently we have:
    505 Subscribers on YouTube (642 views on the new trailer)
    859 Likes on Facebook (1,230 people reached with the new trailer)
    429 Followers on Twitter
    804 Members on IndieDB (89 views on the new trailer)

    Not bad. But we haven't even reached 1000 on any of the profiles yet. Would be nice if we could manage that this year.
    So that means: Letting more people know, posting the links everywhere, etc! :cheers

    Interesting. Not sure I am too excited about that, though.
    That would be yet another place to post the same file to. Things are so much easier when they're grouped together and not all over the place. :facepalm

    That is certainly true, just another option though should Google's option for pay channels transform in to something hideous. Though we could always post to Vimeo too, and still embed them in the forum.

    I think once @Captain Murphy's Oculus video gets the right exposure, we will see the memberships and views change across the board. I am really looking forward to a Pirate Islands Oculus video!

    Indeed that seems to get quite a few people interested! And I would like to see such a video too.
    Perhaps we should take bets on the number of times @Captain Murphy will use the word "amazing" in that video! :rofl

    @Alexey1906,
    While we do like to see HoO gather interest in Russian world, there are a lot of false information in there, firstly "Multiplayer game". HoO never planned to have Multiplayer, or 'player classes'. People in the comments already compare it to NA and ask if there'd be ship crew co-op and guilds (like Blackwake).
    Then "бой с морскими таранами" - Ship rams? HoO team officially denies having anything to do with rams, and promise to make people suggesting it, walk the plank!:walkplank

    This is not my paper. I wrote your wishes in the comments and I hope the redactor will make changes.

    I just ran across this, looks like it was set up back in February of 2014. I don't recall anyone ever mentioning it before, someone has setup a page for Hearts of Oak over vk.com, basically it is a Russian version of Facebook. Looks like we have quite a good Russian following! You can find the page HERE!
