Help Huggles present himself optimally on Gamejolt

(1/3) > >>

Hi folks,

Huggles has moved to Gamejolt, and he's looking for feedback on how he's doing in presenting himself.

Here's his capsule:


Here's his page (click the pic):


What do you think?
What can he do to show himself in the right light?
(And yes: He's already planning on joining the AGS Database shortly.  :-D )

Babar:
Your thread reminded me of a similar thread from a while back I shared a link in, and then I realised that was from you! You've been struggling with this one for a while, haven't you?

Echoing the advice from the video I shared in that thread, I'd recommend making something specialised specifically for that banner header image. Right now it looks like you took the sprite for Huggles, a caravan and clothesline from the game, and put the title text in the middle. I'd suggest something more...full? Like a whole, contiguous image made for that purpose, even if it doesn't exactly echo or match the art style of the game (as long as you feel it evokes the same FEELING you're trying to communicate).

Oh yes, I keep at polishing all my creations!  :-D

Hm. The one thread in Critics' Lounge that I'm aware of was the one where I asked for critique of Huggle's Completed Games phase. You weren't in that thread AFAIK.

What thread specifically are you referring to?

The reason that I return to this right now is that next Easter is coming up and so I've extended and polished the game. And then I decided that the next step would be to move it from my private repository to an indie games site. So I'm interested in having a good page there.

Thanks for the idea!

Babar:
I am talking about this thread

Rik_Vargard:
I would also watch out for the title, I can see the letters have been cut tu because of the shadow, see? is it a particular font?
And since he's on a trip, use an image where he's walking?
