For those who may have not noticed, I've been working on sprucing up the media section on tsumea so it's a lot more useful and easier to use than before, and there's some extra functionality in the backend which will grab local dev related content as well. All the latest youTube members we've subscribed to from our own channel are checked regularly for new videos, and if any are found, they're automatically added to our media section and our front page.
Whether you're a one man indie or a hundred plus game development company, there really is no reason why you shouldn't be utilising a service like youTube to promote your games. The videos that are uploaded on youTube reach so much further than to the visitors there. Video channels can be subscribed to, aggregated, and your footage gets reposted, and embedded on so many other places outside of youTube that it's well worth the tiny effort for the extra publicity you get in return.
Anyway, this is a call for local game developers to hit me up with your youTube channels. You don't have to "friend" me, and really is no more hassle than just telling me your youTube channel! Currently, we have the following developers (as well as the AIE) subscribed:
Black Lab Games
Drop Spider Games
Two Lives Left
If you're a local game dev and you have a youTube channel, or if you know of one not the list above, post the channel name in the comments section here or respond via Twitter! Thanks!
