Whats a good way to advertise this game? I got a good mail bot that can hit the newsgroups.I would like to get more people playing the game.I do have a website, but I get no traffic ( really pisses me off since
I paid a company to promote it and run banners)Well, it is one of those "get paid to surf" things.It was just a short phase I wa going through.Anyway, I want to promote this game. Everybody with me>and the crowd goes YEAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!<

Since I am the 1337est gamer on the earth (yeah right) everyone listens to me and buys TM

No, seriously, I've sold between 10-20 copies of TM

We've got some good posts about Tread Marks and our Tournament at the CPL up on Adrenaline Vault. Go take a look (don't have the URL on me right this sec though). They gave us at least 2 if not 3 news entries and I believe that they interviewed the winner.

i could burn (cd-rw) really small demos. and i could give full credit to LDA. Even put copyright on everything. so that then couldn't mod it.

I would burn copies too, but I wouldn't pay for the cds. And who would you give them to?
I would like to reach a bigger audience than my close friends.I usually tell them the game is cool and they take my word for it. Hum...I
just got a great idea. I would use my auto-poster to hit all the gaming sites until they put a link on their main page.....on second thought a guy got arrested for dumping
10,000 e-mails on ebay and crashing their servers :0

UC and SU:

TriSynergy is handling US marketing. Let them deal with distributing the demo. Feel free to post about the game on other sites though...just not to the point that they don't want to hear anymore about it - 1 or 2 posts max is fine...

Well i've distributed it to quite a few of my freinds with icq. You start a file transfer which they agree to usually then u start to explain the game and aftera while its down they have the game (And who couldn't resist clicking on the install file). I know i can't resist it for any game hehehehehehehe

I've been working on marketing it to the gamers at my school
I've almost sold a couple on it without them even ever having seen the game
