Week one. Fight!

<p><span style="font-size: 13px;">Thank you all for the great start to the Next Car Game pre-order campaign. We’ve had a ton of traffic on the site, lots and lots of discussion on the forums – and a wave of new people joining in – and obviously sales! Watching that bar on the frontpage climb higher is my new favorite pastime/obsession.</span></p>
<p>If you wanted to show the pre-order video to your buddies, that’s now easier because we’re on Youtube. Feel free to share the link and discuss it! <a href="[MEDIA=youtube]8n8afMWq9Ok[/MEDIA]">[MEDIA=youtube]8n8afMWq9Ok[/MEDIA]</a></p>

<p>There’s been a lot of feedback on the payment options and product packages. We’re updating the FAQ and the order pages soon and looking into more payment optios, but in the meantime: please be aware that <strong>you do not need a PayPal account to pay with a credit card</strong>. Just click on <em>“Pay with my credit or debit card”</em> in the <em>“Choose a way to pay”</em> screen and decline having an account created in the following screen.</p>
<p>There’s been some fun coverage about the game online already, inluding <a href="http://i.imgur.com/oJbtaHE.gif" target="_blank">this GIF</a> on <a href="http://redd.it/1lgi7t" target="_blank">Reddit</a>.</p>
<p>Do you know a site we should be on but we’re not?</p>

Couldn't find you guys on Gamespot or IGN, but I did see you on GamerZines (http://www.gamerzines.com/pc/makers-flatout-outline-game.html) and VVV (http://www.teamvvv.com/en/news/comments/New-footage-of-BugBears-Next-Car-Game-looks-smashing)

HUGE following here in the US.
But, it isnt a gaming site, but more a hardware site.
BUT, the owner is a huge gamer, and will put up an article about a game if he likes it.
They also do lots of video card reviews, with real gameplay, and if you could get your game to be one of the games that get tested with the video cards, you would have free ads for every single video card review they do.

Giant Bomb, Kotaku, Joystiq, Destructoid, ShackNews, Rev3Games just to name a few of the bigger ones.


It seems like a lot of people have the general gaming sites covered but I'm going to suggest something different that I think would help give this game some buzz.

I know of two huge boards that are based on Demo Derby and Banger racing and each have their own devoted gaming sections for games surrounding contact racing.

These are:


I know there a loads of people within these sites that have sent off petitions for this kind of game to be made (some may of even sent petitions to you guys a few years ago) and I think that if you go on these boards with something of an official post it would really spark some buzz among your target audience, I'm very active on one of the 2 and already there is some talk about the game generating but getting one of your team on there to really sell it and push the boat out could result in a lot of people deciding to get on board.

I'm not saying there are more hits on these sites than on the big gaming pages but it is guaranteed to ignite some discussion rather than just people having a glance over an article.

I think Joonas should apply for an account at NeoGAF. There is already a small thread for the game. You could email the moderation team after applying and tell them who you are and that you work for Bugbear to get your account accepted faster.
