A Way to Increase TSL's/King's Quest's Popularity
« on: April 14, 2006, 02:58:28 PM »
I have an idea about how to make TSL and KQ even more popular than it is.
     Begin a new Public Relations campaign that targets not only adventure game/King's Quest fans, but also fans that would not normally be interested in adventure game such as TSL.
   Advertise TSL and King's Quest in internet media such as popular and lesser known RPG forums (There is a big market these days for plot driven games within Roleplaying Game circles and the mainstream environment in general; Look at the recent success of Kingdom Hearts II.)
    A nice idea which would be important is now that the target audience (King's Quest fans, members of this forum and the current number of TSL fans) has pretty much been alerted to TSL and rallied, other fandoms such as Final Fantasy (which has also had great sucess over the years) would most likely be interested in TSL and this would get the game more popular exposure.
   A good idea would be to market the game in general gaming forums, and also try to rally the old-school King's Quest fans who may not have heard of TSL yet. POS has always been great at being in touch with the fan community; now would be the time to tap unexpected areas of interest.
   TSL has a great opportunity and capacity given it's content and today's gaming market to have great crossover/mainstream appeal. Plus, you could market the original King's Quest series, which I'm sure would make VU happy as it would grant their franchise exposure and might make them be open to helping out POS in the future.
   In the end, all parties would benefit:
      POS would get their game and their name more exposure and more game downloads in crossover genre and mainstream areas of interest;
     Fans would see would see TSL, King's Quest and perhaps Adventure Gaming with it achieve mainstream popularity again;
   VU would be gratified in their IP getting even more exposure and would be more supportive (than it already has been) of POS and TSL; and fans of other games that didn't know of KQ and TSL before would be introduced to some awesome games.
      Just an idea.

Thank you for the suggestion, but we've already been doing that. If you have any specific suggestions for sites we should target, let us know and we'll see if we missed any of them.
Once the votes are read, the decision is final. The person voted out will be asked to leave the Tribal Council area immediately. I'll read the votes...
