Keeping track of this whole event has gotten me thinking about extra ways in which we could promote Skullgirls and attract more followers, and I was leaning towards seeing if we could spread the characters, art, music and etc. towards that artists/fan-artists, cosplayers, fans of our VAs and etc.?
I remember reading a message on the stream that went along the lines of “all the male Skullgirls fans are always in SRK and the competitive games, while all the female Skullgirls fans are on Tumblr, Deviantart and in Cosplay”.
I think our game has received a lot of attention from this breast cancer donation drive from the gaming/fighting community (I’m especially grateful for the attention melee players have been showing us since yesterday, and encourage everybody to try it out if they’re curious!), so how about we think of ways to also promote it in anime conventions, gaming conventions, non-FGC type events and such? I’ve already gotten a group of my artist friends in love with Alex’s art, and I pumped my fist when I saw a Cerebella at last year’s New York Comic Con. Although it might not be as effective as appealing directly to fighting game fans, who knows? I have a feeling that expanding the pool of people who recognize all sorts of things from Skullgirls is a nice way to bring in some unexpected attention!
And of course, I apologize if this was all covered before I became active here.
