EXPOSURE FOR GAME DEVS & ARTISTS
Calling all video game developers and artists
You have something Creative Uncut wants; video game art! We have something that you want; rabid fans! Let's work together so everyone can benefit. It's a win-win-win opportunity.
1 - Creative Uncut gets video game concept art and promo materials. Hurray for free content!
2 - You get boatloads of free exposure to gamers in the 18-34 years demographic.
3 - Our visitors get to enjoy the creative work of inspirational game artists.
You spend years fine-tuning your game for release day when it all finally goes public. An important day for sure, but the season for building interest and sparking discussion begins well in advance. Creative Uncut is perfectly positioned to help generate that buzz, because we focus on one of the earliest assets produced during the development process: concept art. Captivating interest from the conceptual stage ensures a large window of time for online sharing and word of mouth to work its marketing magic before the big release.
So what kind of viewership numbers can be expected from Creative Uncut? Not every game can expect to attract the same level of attention, but here are some samples of the viewership other successful titles have generated here from concept art galleries in the year preceding their release. These figures are for unique visitors only, not page views.
Marvel vs. Capcom 3 - Data range set 11 months before and 1 month after US release
SoulCalibur IV - Data range set 11 months before and 1 month after US release
Why concept art?
The internet hosts a smorgasbord of choices for video game news. There is no lack of exclusive websites for previews, reviews, screenshots, walkthroughs, and all manner of discussions, but how many websites dedicate coverage to concept art on a grand scale? Last we checked, Creative Uncut was a lonely tree in that field. But it's a tree often visited and always growing larger. In fact, the site saw success almost overnight from visitors sharing links to the galleries. With so many other niches saturated with competition for the same readers, why not reach out to an audience looking for something different? Concept art grabs visual attention and influences early customer opinion. The human social inclination to share great pictures also means your game's assets have potential for views from gamers and non-gamers alike.
