Promoting a new game on the forum

Hi. I was just wondering, it is ok if I make a post about my upcoming game in the forum asking to check out my blog and Youtube channel?

Thanks

As long you are using UE4 for the development of your game.

There’s sections for that here:

and here:

Thanks for the replies. Do you prefer Squarespace, Wix, or Wordpress for game blogging?

None of the above tbh, unless the blog is well established and is a must read…

Why? 3 Reasons:

  1. Dealing with different formatting on every blog is usually a PITA to digest etc.
  2. Slow loading times vs other sites / many blogs won’t even load w/o javascript.
  3. Blogging sites Wordpress etc, are honeypots for Malware see last paragraph.

My advice:
Use the forums on here as linked above etc. Grow an audience that way first!

Good old blogger is simple free and works just fine from my experience. It is an easy way to get up and running with a place to post news and updates for your project and you can always change to another service later on if you need more.

Thanks for replying

Actually, I tried Blogger, Wordpress.com, and Squarespace. I feel Wordpress is a very good option. Easier to use than squarespace and has more features than Blogger.

I think a YouTube channel is also a must. Twitter, Instagram, Facebook are a plus I think.
