Post news RSS presskit() now available on Indie DB

Publishing a professional looking presskit() for your game or company just got easy, fun and no hosting required, we've done all the setup work for you.

Posted by on

The team at Indie DB are excited to announce that you can now create a presskit with ease for any game or company listed on our network with the help of our good friends at dopresskit(). An accurate and well-presented presskit is crucial for any team whether it's a game or a company to help grow their brand with the extraordinary power of the games industry media. It's simple, free and can only help grow your project.

Why create a presskit?

Developers & press both have the same goal: to bring great games to as many people as possible - after all, a good game is worth nothing if no-one plays it. For the press, finding out about a game but not having access to information & media for the game means that they can't write about it.

What's in a presskit?

  • All your profile information displayed professionally on an all-in-one page with navigation.
  • No hosting or coding work required, we've done that for you, just fill in the fields.
  • Image & assets gallery with link to download all images in a zip.
  • Live game price updates as organised through our prices system.
  • Embedded YouTube videos.
  • and much, much more.

Examples

We've created a presskit for Vlambeer and their latest title Nuclear Throne. Click on the images to go to the corresponding presskit, to see how they look (presskits can be embedded in your profile OR standalone, just add /all to the end of the URL to get the standalone version like this and this).

Getting started

We have put great emphasis on making it as easy as possible for you to publish a presskit you are proud for anyone to see with minimal effort. To create a presskit on Indie DB all you need is the following:

  1. A registered account
  2. A game or company profile

On the main page of your company or game profile you will notice a new presskit tab on your navigation bar at the top. Simply click that, fill out the form and you're done!

Credits

We would like to extend a huge thank you to Rami Ismail of Vlambeer for allowing us to incorporate his presskit() into our network. We, just like Rami are driven to help improve the prospects and opportunities of indie developers and having a slick looking presskit is a important step.

We're very excited about implementing presskit() into Indie DB and hope it serves our many devoted game developers and companies to help make the press side of things a little bit easier for them! As always if you do come across any issues with the new presskit() feature please send us an email and we will take a look.

Looks awesome! Oh and incase you are not aware adding /all to the end of the URL i.e. Indiedb.com makes it standalone should you want that :)

I actually liked this so much (and how easy it is to update) that I just had our main site link to it Findtheisle.com

The one thing I think would be nice to add is additional logos and icons. We have a black and a white version of the logo (The Isle with mountains above) that we like press to have access to.

Good point, hmm I guess you could add it to your screenshots section as a temporary measure, but that is far from ideal

It's awesome to see this functionality added! I am interested in creating a presskit for my engine, is that a possibility?

Currently a presskit can only be attached for a game or a company profile. This is maybe something we can accommodate in the future - in the meantime I'd recommend creating a company presskit for Zero Matrix Software and then using that to post information and images about RPG in a box.

Any way to connect a previously made presskit (made with doPresskit) to our game/company profile on Indiedb?

Unfortunately not at this stage. We tried hard to make sure the form for adding a new presskit was as easy as possible so hopefully you can add one without too much hassle.
