You should dress up alot of people in the different curvecolors and walk on the streets in New York City, and film from a helicopter and make a "curvefever game" in REAL LIFE.

Facebook, twitter, ... is a first good step I guess.
Maybe get a partnership with other games, who are in the same "evolutionary" stage as curvefever. Get ads on online game pages. something like that Smile

Definitely get more active on Facebook, perhaps make an official YouTube channel?
I was wondering if I'm allowed to make a short, fun, commercial for Curvefever on YouTube, since I have a channel with 450+ subscribers, I could get some of them to play curvefever? Smile

You should think how to improve the game, fix bugs and give rank back instead of promoting that game.

I have an awesome idea (I think) on how to create a new form of the game with a completely new concept. It still involves the curving idea, but with a different twist. Let me know if you want more information, because I think this is a sellable idea!!

I would say the same Smile

Hi,

Today is my premium expired, and then I got an idea. Why the premium account can not be supplemented with coins? Because while I was premium I collected a lot of coins. A certain number of coins premium account? What do you think? best regards

U mean that premiums can buy more premium with coins but non-premiums cant, right? That make sense so first premium have to buy.

This is totally NOT the right place for discussing this. Smile

ONTOPIC:
I guess it's one thing to make people come here, but another one to make them stay. My personal opinion is, that the frontpage could use a little refreshment; get rid of the fevermeter (or get it to work..) for example. Moreover I don't like it, how the single announcements are not really seperated from each other, it looks quite chaotic. Put it in a frame and seperate body from title.
If I came to this page the first time, I'd be pretty much cnfused, because the frontpage is a little messy. The menu bar on top drowns in the messy layout for example.

On how to get people to come here, it would be a great idea if someone with a big YouTube Channel would promote it, like T2norway offered. I don't really know what EmperorJ means with his first point, but I definitely agree with the other 2 he mentioned: getting a game trailer, and some previews or something.

Youtube channel or newspaper Curve Fever(i can do that) or fb,twiter or new powerups and clans

  • Create a referral system: If people join through a referral link, both will receive like 200 credits after the new player has played like 25-50 games (the games are so people don't just create fake-accounts). Also make the referred people as standard friends outside of the limit of 5 friends to promote getting your friends to play or remove the friend-constrain altogether.
  • Create an active facebook page, but don't use it to spam users, since that will have the wrong affect. It is also a great place to post update in case a server doesn't work for whatever reasn (like with the crash and hack).
  • Create a game-trailer which shows what the game is and maybe in the end (or a seperate video) on how to play the game.
  • Create tips&tricks video's on the same channel.
  • Promote people to keep playing, so make the game stable and give people who keep playing extra's, like in-game gifts, achievements, credtis, etc.

 

Just some quick thoughts, but some of them (especially the first one) might be very interesting Smile

New game modes. Like survivor mode with 8 ppl in ffa.every game after 2 will be knocked out and at the end it is 1v1. the winner earns, for example, 100-200 coins.

Three sugestions:

You should make it possible for the people in a game to kick a host if he's unactive. for example a button, which all other players have to click.

You should have Thousands of more things to buy! more colours, more powerups(this is important), and more "status"-symbols.

It should be possible to win more than 10-15 credits each game. Maybe more like 50 credits for 1st place and 3 credits for last place.

You know, promoting and improving the game are two different things. Although your ideas wouldn't even improve the game, they would ruin it. l◘l.. Kicking the host. Clever.

And for the things in the shop, they will add more stuff, just be patient. If they wouldn't take the time for new stuff, the new powerups etc. were very bad.

 

Well, I like that you now want to make bigger promotion. Smile Hopefully, this game gets a bit more popular than it already is.

Do more work in social media (be agressive, people want to be annoyed if they have facebook etc.)
Also, be sure that your PR isn't focused on just a few regions but everywhere. Maybe create fan-groups in different languages.

And create a better community. This forum is a very minimalistic (and ugly) solution, fit for some bug-tracking and user-complaints, but not a real community. Use some feature-rich software like WBB (upcoming version will be pretty awesome) and write a decent integration of game data for it (should be easy, I might be able to offer some help as well).
You could allow usergroups for clans etc. You'll also need a larger team of mods.
Just look at minecraft, it strives through its huge community.

Maybe create some DLC or promote fan-art, like wallpapers and banners, that people can use on their accounts on other forums.
Make a gfx competition, I'll join Acute

Organize a real-life meeting. This is obviously not trivial and should probably happen after a more stable community has formed.

Post some funny pictures about curvefever on 9gag. prepare for subsequent servercrash. Acute

I would go classical way and suggest official (unofficial aswell) userbars for online promotion and stickers that could be sold directly to players (for real money or maybe for in-game coins) - this for offline promotion of course.

-Make a simple offline phone version indeed and link people to the official game.

-Contact some game sites (some dutch versions; spele.nl, funnygames.nl) and ask them if they can put curve fever in their list of games

THAT is indeed a true word. Look at the discrepancy between people playing, and people who use the forums. It's enourmous. Now that you have done some major changes at the game, you should do something for the hompage/forums themselves. I pointed that out in the suggestions section a while ago, but the answer was to improve the game first, which is good. But that part is done for now, move on with the forums, get people to be active in here!

How about sharing out some flyer with a special Code which the Person can use here and he will get 1 day Full premium with all colors and items and icons.

Or somebody can win such code  if he ''like'' the facebook acc oder follow Curve Fever on twitter.

You already can play curvefever on android. The only thing you need is a bluetooth keyboard and the newest version of flash. However the site is not optimized for mobile phones and its not really possible to adjust the gamefield with touch, its no fun for now i think. An App would be better.

Playing A LOT GAMES should be honored too even if you LOOSE a lot in the past!

I have a simple suggestion

 

For example if there is a league game with 12 items then it would be very good to be able to watch if the right items were selected. And the best way to to this is to introduce a "item - list" in the match history.

One more thing: you should be able to comment a comment Wink

You should definetly make an Iphone/Android app in addition to the online game. That's where the industry is going.

Android&iOS versions... I can imagine those lags caused by addicted people playing on their mobile devices with 3G connection (or even worse).

I don't say that the idea is bad itself but I afraid that it may bring whole new level of technical problems what will probably take its toll on a gameplay.

yeah, thats exactly what i thought too. kind of obvious idea i think. make a real event out of it, do real competitions with real people, i am sure that brings tons of fun for the people and tons of popularity for curvefever. i have fields of ca 20 squaremeter with 4-6 people plaiing against each other in mind, and each one has a huge bottle filled with coloured sand (or smth like that) on his back to make a trace, and they arent allowed to run. after the game people with huge brushes have ro clean the field.

i would love it!

but first, you should improve the game by anti-bugging it, creating more gamemodes, improving the rank-system and avoiding servercrashes and stuff like that.

but dont change too much, love the design and layout and also the gameplay.
