How to Talk to Game Journalists

With such a vast and competitive market, knowing how to market your game is critical to its success. One of the best ways to get your game out there for the world to know is by getting a games journalist to write about your game!!! 

Lucky for you, we have Mike Thompson, a veteran games journalist coming out to give a talk about the best practices when it comes to interacting with guys like him. 

Mike has a vast amount of experience working for a lot of popular publications such as Inside Social Games, The Escapist, and more! Now he works as a creative writer at 5th Planet Games. But for an hour or so he is willing to share his wealth of knowledge to help you get your game noticed!
Don't miss this!

    Mike Thompson gave us a great primer on how to interact with game journalists, including some great tips on ways to make our content interesting, things not to do, and even timing. Mike was informative, approachable, and helpful.
