First of all, thanks to everyone who has joined the Sorcerer King Early Access beta. Your feedback is hugely appreciated.
As developers, one of the most frustrating things is to see the people who enjoy your game shouted down by drive-bys from people who haven’t played it.
The new Steam paradigm makes community involvement more important than ever. If you are so moved, the team would really appreciate anything you choose to do over there.
If you like Sorcerer King, there are a couple things you can do on Steam that would help the game out tremendously.
- Review us! Reviews from people who have actually played the game are the best thing in the world. One of the coolest things about Steam is that it displays your playtime right there at the top of the review, so you can be sure that it’s from someone who has some idea what they’re talking about.
- Curate us! Even if you have two followers and one of them is your kid brother, curation is awesome.
- Tag us! Is there a tag you think applies to Sorcerer King? Even just agreeing with the current “fantasy” “strategy” “4x” “turn-based” tags is helpful.
Note that we would never, ever ask for fluffy or dishonest reviews, tags, or anything else. If we haven’t earned your upvote/review/recommendation yet, that’s okay! We’d appreciate it if you’d tell us what we could do to earn your enthusiasm, though.
As a side note, tweet us @stardock if you do any YouTubes, streams, blogs, or any other Sorcerer King thing and we’ll give any high-quality stuff a shout-out on our official Twitter/Facebook/Twitch/forums/etc. We love to spotlight stuff like this from our community. (“High-quality” meaning production values – non-blurry cams, understandable audio, etc – not being uncritically positive about the game. We probably won’t retweet trolls, but we’re big kids and can handle criticism where it’s warranted.)
Thanks again for your support.
