600+ gaming sites categorized by platform
by Andreas Zecher
When you’re about to release your first game, it can be hard to figure out which gaming sites you should contact. When we released our game Spirits on the App Store, we had to do a lot of manual research which sites were relevant for iOS games. Now working on the Mac version of Spirits, we had to figure out which sites actually cover Mac games.
Every game developer talking to the press has this problem. Since Promoter already had a list of 600+ gaming related sites that it uses for the auto-detection feature, I decided to categorize all sites by the following platforms to help solve this problem:
- Wii U
- Windows Phone
Now, let’s say you’re porting your game to Android, but have no idea what the press landscape there looks like, Promoter gives you a current list of all major and minor Android gaming sites. This gives you a great starting point on deciding which sites to contact.
To access the list, simply signup for a free Promoter account and then click on Sites in the main navigation. To only show sites for a specific platform, click on a platform tag beneath a site.
