I’ve added Imperial Conflict to a new review platform called rateandtalk.com. This will help us get interest from people who don’t already know about games like IC. Discovery = more players = more competition!
Those who provide a 1-5 rating + review will be awarded the new “Street Team” badge and optional title.
Feel free to add other stuff too. I just added a review for hot cheetos lol, gonna do some reviews of some Guns N Roses music later tonight. This non-IC stuff is gonna be a big part of what hooks us some new victims, I mean players.
All this review data (IC, hot cheetos, etc) will eventually be discoverable and focused by topic in a similar way, but also all interlinking like a wiki.
This is already happening in a review I did for a Discord auto-mod bot I’m testing:
You can see there that I link to the same Imperial Conflict review that you all are helping with now. So when somebody out there looks for a review for that Discord bot (https://gaiusbot.me/) they’re also going to discover the IC review.
One of their devs already found that review, and that bot serves 7,000+ Discord servers. You can see the network effect potential there, and this is just 1 example.
There’s a bigger picture here that I won’t go into because I’ll probably bore everybody lol, but this is a hustle for me right now to start connecting the different communities and projects I’ve been involved in over the years.
We’ll double-dip by getting reviews for IC, but there is monetization potential here that will help me fund IC as well.
As for bringing in more gamers specifically, I also built and own pbbg.com and am going to be building this in as a service to the 184 games (and growing) in that directory. That’s 183 other games like IC with their own communities that will all also have a path to discover and use rateandtalk.com.
