as I am approaching the end of development of my iPhone game I find it increasingly difficult to approach magazines / youtubers and bloggers interested in replying to me and featuring a preview of my indie game. The problem are:
- the game is not finished yet and so I can only show a video
- some of them receive over a thousand contacts per day and hence is nearly impossible for me to be noticed unless the game is released and I can send them a proper demo
- sending a press releases without a video link is kind of bad (but I don't want to put the video on youtube yet) hence would add credibility/value if I could add a link of some external website talking about the game
However there must be websites where I can list my game and game preview as in imdb. I found http://www.indiedb.com and I am trying to build a comprehensive list before deciding where I will submit my game preview.
Could anyone please provide additional references / databases? And ideally, could people also say if the website is authoritative or not (I use the number of Facebook likes as metric, but might not be 100% exact).
PS: Mine is a iPhone game, so I would really appreciate sites listing also smartphone and/or iPhone games.
