This post is a complete summary in bullet point form of all the slides found in Indie Game Girl's excellent video on How to Successfully Market Your Indie Game on a $0 Budget.
In this post I explore different marketing areas for my puzzle adventure, namely Target Audience, Similarities and Differences to other games (inspirations), Unique Selling Points, and an Elevator Pitch / Game Description (one sentence).

Adam Thompson explores the characters and narrative of Bloodborne, identifying its suitability towards other genres.
In preparation for the upcoming Ludum Dare game jam I wanted to write up what I've learned from my previous experiences.
I recount my personal story going indie and collect pieces from the internet that serve as game dev advice and inspiration for others on the same path.
