    I launched my second android game yesterday and I posted it to some forums and on reddit but that doesn't seem to work at all. I only got 5+ downloads and its not increasing. Any idea on how to get more players?
    Btw Its name is Turtle Blast.

    Thanks :)

    How early did you start advertising? Or did you start when you released it?

    I started after I released it. I dont have a social media following anywhere so its hard to promote it before release.

    Only thing to do if you dont have money is work.

    There is no secret. Makes tons of promo for your thing, post it everywhere. Needs millions and millions of eyes to see it.

    If you have a little bit of money look into paid ads. I know a couple people who swear by them (paid ads on social media).

    There is the occcassional success story of indie games who had a successful marketing campaign. It's always the ones who had a strategy and did the work. In big companies they are spending as much or more on marketing than they do on production. That should give you some idea the labor involved.
