    Hi guys,

    A while ago we made a game for WP8 and published it on WP marketplace, followed by a series of posts in different forums and other places. But the game just doesn't go on! So I'm wondering, how else we can promote it? Any help is appreciated!

    P.S. Link to a game post - http://forums.windowscentral.com/win...ngry-wolf.html

    Yep, it would be real nice if WPCentral will do an article for us But truly saying, the WP game version is a little bit simple for that, cos initially it was made for the XBox360 Kinect.

    Nice game, but you're marketing it wrong - rename it to "Ну, Погоди!" - you'll have much more downloads since a lot of people remember this:
    Click image for larger version.

    But not that many remember the Nintendo version ;-)

    Alternatively, you can hire an "app promotion" services from one of the 100's of Indian/Chinese companies - they will "bump up" your app/game with dozens (or 100's - whichever you prefer) of "5-star" reviews in an App Store. That will make your app/game get into "top" lists where much more legit users will be able to notice it. Not gonna name any, but you can easily find them ;-)

    Media promotion...

    Try to contact admins of those WP related forums or game forums, maybe they will recommend your game if it really is cool....

    Yep, gameplay almost the same as in "Ну, Погоди!", but still the game is different. And will be unfair to app users if we will use that name.
    But idea about app promotion companies is good, thanks!

    How about to make a list of different forums, blogs, sites etc. on which you can promote your own Windows Phone APPs cheaply or for free?
    Here's my humble list:

    • forums.wpcentral.com - of course our favourite WPcentral
    • wmpoweruser.com/submit-articles/
    • reddit
    • Facebook
    • Twitter
    • YouTube
