Goose Gaming Consulting LLC, an indie game research and advisory firm, is pleased to announce the release of its first-ever indie developer focused product – the “Indie Developer Press Information and Contact Listing”.
GGC’s “Listing” provides a massive overview of the current gaming journalism landscape, listing more than 500 different websites that cover video game news, reviews, editorials, podcasts, and the like. The product includes more than 150 sites from outside North America and sections dedicated to indie-exclusive, console-specific, and niche category press outlets. With each site listed comes information about the outlet, its posting frequency, and hard to find statistics and analysis on daily site visitors, social media followers, and review policies.
What stands out most, however, is the contact information for each site listed. Goose Gaming Consulting has compiled emails and contact page links for every single site and thus providing indie studio PR teams and managers easier access to the media.
“As we developed PR strategies for our clients, we noticed that finding the right places to send press releases and review copies was not easy, and getting the contact information to reach them was even harder,” says Goose CEO Cooper Schembor. “Everyone has a few ‘go to’ sites they know and like and want to send information to but a few small articles here and there are not going to be enough to help an indie game get coverage in larger outlets or get meaningful sales. So, we decided to build the most complete, up-to-date contact list we could, provide information to help indie teams decide if a site is right for them, and then give them the emails and links to actually get in touch. Essentially, we took all the painful research that PR and community representatives usually have to do for their games out of the equation”.
Goose’s listing provides information only for active, safe, and non-“pay for review” sites only. It is an excellent resource for any indie game developer looking to get more press coverage for their projects or build out their email lists. And, at only $60.00 US, it is extremely affordable for indie developers of all sizes. Goose’s listing will available for purchase on their website Monday, July 2nd.
