In college I played Nethack. Then I moved to Moria. Now I stick to playing Angband.
Successful Game Marketing
I read a post and an article on how CJ E&M Corporation is dominating the game charts over in Korea. How do they do it? They say it has something to do with their social networking presence. Yeah maybe.
But take a look at the marketing picture for one of their games. I see a lot of reasons why someone might want to download/buy their game. We have a naughty nun. Then there is the sexy nurse. And who can overlook the vixen cop?
There are plenty more reasons that come out on their graphic. Got a bunch of animated hotties with the cleavage ready to draw you in. No rocket science there in their marketing prowess. Sure a social networking campaign might not hurt. But don't discount the fact that sex sells.
