July has been a pretty solid month for Power Level Studios. After all the hard work from the past few months to build a solid prototype, we were ready to share Soul Reaper with the world, and the response has been pretty good.
The Square Enix Campaign
It has been going strong with 80% Like. It started out at 94% for the first few days but dropped almost consistently the days after. The reason is likely because we heavily promoted it in our channels first, which were already favorable to the project. And then came the new people who were not familiar with Soul Reaper yet. It is a niche game after all.
Announced during our first devlog on Medium, we added exploration tools and a minimap. More info here.
New promotion channels
Lots and lots of Stories on Medium
We try to be creative, original and helpful. We wrote 8 posts (9 including this one) this month on Medium. Here they are:
We filmed a Kickstarter video
We’re not putting the video together yet, but we assembled the team, rented professional-quality equipment and did our best to film a good Kickstarter video. See our previous post on why we are not doing a Kickstarter yet.
What’s coming up in August?
The main things happening in August will be wrapping Square Enix Collective up, designing new monsters for the lava section of the vault and applying for grants!
