I'm going add it to the idea list at the top here and everyone that makes a trailer can add theres to it.
If anyone needs specific help for a trailer I can lend a hand too - Ive got quite a bit of editing/effects skills (my time is limited though, bare in mind).
I'll be working on my own trailer too.
Oh, and if anyone wants to use footage from the Swede for their trailer, feel free too, its all Creative Commons.

Also, maybe send PMs to all YouTube users with LBA related videos for the game asking them nicely to put a little plug for the game now being on GoG? (explain sales increase chances of a sequal etc)
I still see speed-runs and lets plays put up fairly regularly for it...not sure how many are from people from here and how many arnt though.

What do you mean by "facebook-like button"?

edit: oops, I put the hyphen in the wrong place, and that made the whole difference . I get it now.

A "like this page on Facebook-Button". So everybody would be spreading news about this on their facebook page.

Not a bad idea.

Perhaps we should wait till both LBAs are in GOG to make the definitive promotion...

In other worlds, they put a message inside an asteroid to protect it while it travels through space to reach some other planet. In this case it is a gift, a guitar, rather than just a message.

They have confirmed it, yes.
I dont see any advantage in waiting though, we get two opertunitys to post stuff about LBA and we should use both of them.

I've already posted about the game on Facebook as soon as it was released on GoG. I'm also starting a german Let's Play of LBA2 this week where I will definitely mention the rerelease. LBA1 would be more fitting, I guess, but I finished that as Let's Play about two weeks before it came out on GoG.

If you produce any good trailers, I'd be more than glad to upload them on my channel aswell.

Still waiting for the second LBA on GoG and i'm going to make a video on that in my YouTube chan ! I've also share it on facebook.

And we can see here that LBA is in 6th position on gog.com and just in some days, behind big big games :



I am... happy.

I guess they should first make LBA 2 work fine on new operating systems before releasing it... I couldn't install/run it at all on Windows 7.

LBA2 or LBA2 on GoG? I can't start the "normal" LBA2 on windows 7 64 bits, that's also why i'm waiting for it on gog...

Why did you mark the number of votes with a red circle? That number does not belong to Little Big Adventure but to a GoG Mix which is listed on the right side of the page that isn't visible in the picture.

Yes, it's a fail sorry. So LBA is 6th in user's rating, that's all. And of course it's just the begining.

Yep, I second that. Its just so as to avoid confusion. People are generally more likely to look at the same subject matter once in a single period of time. Also run the risk of annoying peeps if we advertise twice.

No, I strongly dissagree, at least as far as the media goes, - two game release's is two pieces of news.
Gaming websites report, frankly, just about every rumour or the most insignificant thing these days. (especialy IGN, they file a different story practicaly for each new video of a game they get)
By comparison, two seperate game release's of a classic old game is perfectly justified.

Its one thing to avoid spamming your friends and family too much, but getting news of both LBA's release's onto as much media as we can should be done ASAP.

For that mater, have no idea how long LBA2 will take - it might take them awhile to get it working on Windows7.
Remember also we are hardly speedy ourselves, if we only start when LBA2 is released it could take another month or so for a decent impact.
