DEVELOPER & PUBLISHER FAQ
How do I get started?
To get started, you can create a Publisher/Developer account here. You can then create your game page by either filling in the form or auto populating it from your steam store page. Once the site admin has approved your page, which should take no longer than 24 hours your game will get featured to media and influencers interested in your genre.
Are influencers on the platform verified?
Yes, each and every influencer and journalist on the indie boost platform is manually verified by our team.
Will I get email notifications when I get key requests?
Yes, you will get notifications whenever someone requests a key or when content is produced.
How often do I have to check on my account/game page?
If you have not turned off your email notifications you will get an alert each time something significant happens on your account. Such as a new key being requested or a new piece of content being produced. It’s generally a good idea to come back and check once in a while to see if there is any new content on your report page that you may have missed.

I made my game page, but I’m not getting any key requests. Did I do something wrong?
Indie Boost’s algorithms are designed to get your game exposure when it most needs it. Ensure that you have all your store pages and correct launch dates listed. Having a striking header image and game description is key to attracting attention. We’re constantly onboarding new media and influencers and widening our reach to ensure that every game gets the attention it deserves. If you are still finding that you are struggling to get your game out there, perhaps using a media or influencer boost will get you ahead of the pack.
Can I publish a game page even if I don’t have keys yet?
Yes, absolutely! While we encourage you to post your game only if you have keys for at least a beta or demo of your game you can still post it and accept key requests. Once you are ready to send them you can go ahead and submit your keys and the influencer or journalist in question will receive an email update.
Do you have any suggestions to improve my game page?
Make sure to include high-quality, high-resolution images to show off your game as best as possible. In your game’s description, try to use proper spelling and grammar, and write a short, but impactful description blurb about the game. Try to think about what players will enjoy about your game. What sets your game apart from other games of its genre? When applicable, try to use action words to create a “call to action” to encourage media and influencers to check out your game.
What are the ideal dimensions for the header image of my game page?
The Ideal dimensions for the header are 1500px by 500px
I got an interview request, how do I connect with the interviewer?
Once you have accepted an interview the interviewer will receive your contact details and reach out to you via email.
