Very simple. YOUTUBE.
This is where all the people looking for a game similar to spore is.
I have gone through a few videos on youtube and came across a lot of 'Spore 2' (obv. fake) videos. But the comments are all there. People want another game... A game thats like a Spore 2. Spore without the childish things! Why not try getting known there?

we dont have something to show right now, just a bunch of prototypes, music and some sprites and backgrounds, we need to show at least the alpha version of microbe stage if we want to attract people

Hmm true. However they say that Microbe is almost ready (to be playable) and was expected to be launched before 2013. But I guess work wasn't done and it got a delay. But if we go by what is said Microbe is about to finish. We can show this to the people.

penumbra is correct

Non real gameplay? What do you mean?

Anyway, the answer will be probably no. It has alredy been discussed at least 3 more time on other threads, so i'm not going to list why here.

No. And cut your sig's vertical space down. I prefer sigs to be around 150 px or less tall so that I don't get arthritis in my middle finger.

I don't think that anybody in here can make something really impressive so most people will help even if there is no gameplay.

Also, as Cheese said, this idea has been discussed many times before an it has been decided to delay untill there will be actuall gameplay footage.

Also Sico said "[/thread]".

:D Moderators! I have fantastic news for you! I was looking across YouTube on Dan (NerdCubed's) channel, and I found something that may help your cause.

Indie developer? Want me to play your game? Send a code/download of your game here and it might just have a video made about it!

playmygame@nerdcubed.co.uk


So when you do have a product ready, you will be able to contact him fairly easily! He is not a channel as famous as the Yogscast or TotalBiscuit, so you may be able to give him the Microbe Stage very easily!

I do hope this helps you, cheers!

Months, or even years, can be overlooked as long as the post is constructive. His post was constructive, and since there is already discussion on the Misc thread, it's good he posted it here. Six months isn't even that bad of a necropost.

What's more, such hostility will get you banned. 

FellowWithTheHat, we will make sure to keep an eye out for indie showcasing, but only once we have a solid game, as you said. I think nerdcubed could be a great help in helping us attain more resources in terms of talent and manpower.

I apologize for the hostility, I was trying to go with his fancy theme by copying Gamechap and Bertie.

I was not aware that a necro post was allowed if constructive, because on other forums, even posts like that, will still get them in trouble for posting a topic long left alone.

Well, it's rather ambiguous on the Forum Rules/Etiquette, and of course it isn't something that is overt, so I can forgive a small slip like that.

Plus, Nerdcubed, very funny guy, watched a few of his videos myself, can't attest to him going into the game knowing what the heck he's going to do but it will be hilarious to watch.

Indeed, he's very funny and I've been subscribed to him for a long time now, the only problem is that the moderators themselves have said to wait until we have a functioning prototype of the microbe stage, and the date they are shooting for is before New Years. That's nearly five months away. If everything goes to plan, and we can remember, then I wholeheartedly agree to sending in the little fledgling of a Microbe stage in and see what he does, and I feel it will go well since he played Spore, and liked it despite knowing it could be better.

Of course, this game is going to be the better.

I watch most, if not all, of NerdCubed's videos and I can say with assurance I'm not letting him play Thrive unless I'm playing it with him. Who knows what he's do to our poor game.

Fancy theme? I do not try to go for fanciness, old chap, it is simply a long-running joke for my Username that I act slightly more sophisticated than normal. :PI've been doing this on every one of my accounts labeled "TheFellowWithTheHat" so I appreciate you noticing.

And I took no insult with the "Shut up," so I'm not short with you at all! :) 

And what a smashing reference to Gamechap and Bertie! I say dear Dinoman, it was quite impressive!

It's fantastic to meet another Procrastinator! And I will write it down for you chaps, I will be sure to remind you on this very thread when I see the first hint of the Prototype being installable.

I am glad I could have helped! :D

QFT

If we are going to let a gaming-related Youtuber play Thrive, we need someone who would actually appreciate the processes going on in the game (Quill18 springs to mind), not just blunder through them haphazardly without finding out what to do beforehand. I'm not saying someone like NerdCubed or PewDiePie can't play Thrive, it's just that if the first thing people see of it is someone laughing hysterically at it and not showcasing its real potential, it's not going to do us any good whatsoever.

Well, at least about 900k people would have knowledge of thrive. I think the meant it as a advertising oppritunity.

Considering NerdCubed is much more intelligent than he makes himself out to be, and he actually did say quite a few things on how Spore could've been better, I'm taking a bally risk when I say that I don't think that it would be a bad idea. You could perhaps just ask him to be serious about it? Yes, he is a comedy gamer, but he was excited about Spore like many other people, and, as Spore did, it let him and everyone else down. I'm sure he'd enjoy the promise of a game that is attempting to actually do what Spore was meant to do, and do it better.

I'm not saying, by any stretch of the imagination, that you should send him the game now, I am simply clarifying. I was not very clear when explaining how he would be a benefit to Thrive. Perhaps you could even get him as a user? He's not an Astrophysicist but he went to a university for an education in Astrophysology (If that is even a word...), so perhaps he could help you.

I hope this clears things up. :)

I think we're best of releasing the game as it goes and letting youtubes do an LP of if they want.

As for boosting marketing of our game, I intend to make a post on the Roosterteeth forums when we have more of a solid thing to show. I am quite active there and they have a great community for showcasing each others works and I beleave a lot of people there will jump at the chance to join our team.

But I would not ask anyone to do an LP of the game.
