..:: DISTRIBUTION LIST ::..

This list is more for my own reference,but I'll post it to a gamepage anyway. The list is compilation of all the sites on which Hero's Realm is advertised. Hero's Realm has had trouble gaining traction outside of RMN and GW so if any of you who are members of the other sites feel so inclined to promote the game it would be much appreciated.

Official Homepage:
I created this during the development of the game and have since updated it with the final numbers. It is a good resource for the game. The Guestbook has a bunch of feedback (and questions!).

RPG RPG Revolution:
Got a few hits here, but not much. I wasn't expecting much though due to the focus on RMXP here and the crowded nature of the site. I did get one review however! And a few PMs.

HBGames (formerly RMXP.org):
Barely a ripple here, but again wasn't expecting much given the focus on XP and VX.

Gaming World:
Easily my second biggest reception next to RMN. I started HR while at GW and built a bit of a fanbase there. I guess it was still around when I finally finished it.

RM Resource Kit:
Decent reception here - I was quite surprised. The site really buries their completed games.

GameJolt:
This is a more general gaming site. I am pleased to see that Hero's Realm tops the list of RPGs with a rating of 4.3/5 (only 11 ratings, though). Pretty cool either way.

RPG Fan:
Another general RPG site. This one shocks me the most as I have had no replies at all - I thought that this game would be ripped to shreds at the very least. Oh well.

RPG Crisis:
Barely a blip, but whatever. Although my Generica post here did spark a bit of a flamewar!

Kobra's Realm:
This site is near death but I posted here anyway.

Naruto Fan:
This was actually done by Ephiam (of Boss Project and Dragon Fantasy fame) a few months ago! Nice to see some outside exposure.

Softpedia:
I blogged about this one because I was so shocked to see it. A Softpedia bot (or employee) grabbed this game from somewhere (my guess is GameJolt) and posted it on Softpedia. Since it's initial surge of 250 downloads the game has fallen off the first page and downloads have stopped. Still, it was pretty cool.

Dragon's Den
This is a Dragon Warrior/Dragon Quest fansite. The activity of their fangames forum is minimal, but the reception is positive so far.

Brothersoft.com
Seems to be another software cataloguing site not unlike Softpedia. I found out about this through an email from the admin (I assume?) letting me know about Generica being an Editor's Pick there.

Fireheart
Looks like someone blogged about the game. Unfortunately the blog contains 95% my writing from this gamepage so the poster remains a mysterious entity!

idealsoftblog.it
It's-a-me! Herio! (Yes, somehow this game ended up on an italian blog!)

ZPE's thoughts
Not sure how I missed this completely! ZPE posted his review on his blog.

TeamLiquid - a Starcraft fansite
A member, XFire, on TeamLiquid.net's message boards mentioned Hero's Realm in a thread called "Best free games you don't know about". TeamLiquid appears to be a StarCraft fansite, which is pretty coincidental because I just re-installed StarCraft and Broodwar two days ago.

PS. there is also a bunch of other cool games listed there, and Barkley Shut up and Jam Gaiden is mentioned.

(Hungarian site)
Mentioned here in a blurb...maybe? I have no idea. Google Translate sez:
go up to town to celebrate the twentieth of August. Now most of the confusion that stuck to the computer game called Hero's Realm. Just like old times. I decided that I will be back gépbuzi, and do not care for dislodgement. The center is only 1.5 weeks, I go and start the school. New life. There will be gépbuziskodni.
