… is the reason why the team had to work without internet for over an hour. This Friday it was my turn to provide a working location (indie to the max), so we were all at my place. However, as a bigger brother, I sometimes sacrifice my dignity for the goodwill of my little sister, meaning I was about to stand in the digital queue for tickets for Beyoncé (singer / actress / model / idol for my sister). As my router sometimes refuses work when too many machines are connected, I had to politely ask the team to disconnect, because disconnection for me would mean re-entering the queue. What I expected to last for 10 minutes, took more than an hour. And I didn’t even get the right tickets! One for sitting in the back, and for standing in the front (sorry sis).
After all this nuisance, we could finally do some business, and on the menu for today was: the new Trailer! Our first trailer was very simple: a few seconds of gameplay, from different levels. We didn’t put much effort in editing slickly or adding juicyness. Why would we need that, the game speaks for itself doesn’t it. Wrong! The youtube statistics showed that many people already clicked away whilst showing the logo’s. They hadn’t even seen anything from our game and they gave up on Caromble!. So our GameTrailer 101 was: start with the action. Show immediately what your game is about, because the attention span of your viewers is… well, probably less than you’d hope or expect.
We think our next trailer is much juicier than the previous one. Also we show some more of the content from Caromble! We hope you like it. Expect it to be online somewhere in this week.
