To the dreamers, the rebels, welcome to Indie Game Mode
Are you tired of the same old blockbuster titles hogging all the attention? Do you crave unique, innovative, and underappreciated gaming experiences that don’t always get the love they deserve from big gaming sites? Well, you’ve just found your new home!
We love indie games of all sizes…
Indie Game Mode is more than just another gaming news site. We won’t just cover the biggest indies on the rise. While titles that are viral on social media will appear here, we’re actively seeking out unique small to medium indie games that would not be picked up by IGN and others!
You see, indie games of all shapes and sizes deserve love and attention. From their conception, through their development and on through their release, someone’s got to dig up and brag about these gems, and that’s us.
From news, to reviews, and even dev updates on games both finished and in production, we’ll keep you up to speed. Why, do we cover games that are in active development, you ask? Simple – because indies need Wishlists on Steam. They need to garner interest and get exposure leading up to their release, not just after it.
Often, the gunshot press they get at the end of their cycle lasts only but a moment before fizzling out, and those developers and amazing games they create are left without a life raft. Developers of all walks of life sacrifice immensely to create that which they’re passionate about, and oftentimes with nothing in return.
…and the developers that make them!
Another way in which Indie Game Mode is unique compared to other publications is that while we cater to indie game fans looking for the best games to wishlist and keep an eye on, we also cater to the developers making those games. That’s right, if you’re a dev, you’re likely looking for other titles and creators who, just like you, are looking for community. You’re probably also looking for industry advice, interviews, and wisdom from those who have already made it to the top.
As a developer myself, I will say it for you – we all need to help each other! You’re likely also looking for tutorials in your favorite software, free assets, and more. Over time, we’ll build out a treasure trove of articles and YouTube videos just for you, and if you’d like to create guest content in your field of expertise, just say the word!
Getting your game covered here is like free press. We’ll cover ongoing updates, releases, and more to highlight your vision and get you wishlists on Steam or traffic to wherever you’re selling your game! Are you crowdfunding through Kickstarter and trying to meet your goal? Let us know and we’ll write something up to highlight the campaign so you have a better chance of meeting your goal.
Remember, Kickstarter is all or nothing, so every bit of exposure helps. Of course, while we’re much more inclusive to what we feature than larger websites, we’ll still need to determine whether the game looks like something our readers would be excited to play or not, so be sure you have a press kit ready, polish your demo Steam page and reach out.
