So being able to vote for what the Fighters do is pretty important to the game. My original idea was to have Polls set up on deviantArt to keep track of that. It seems, however, that Polls are for premium accounts only. It's not worth my money to upgrade to premium, so instead I'm going down another road. As you may have noticed, for now we'll be voting in the comments. This isn't ideal. I'm going to be looking into some free poll websites, and link to those in the descriptions. Do you have any suggestions? Do you prefer voting in the comments? Should I get a premium account anyways?
There's also the question of scheduling. I want to always have something Sunset Fighter related to work on, but clearly I'll need some time in between Turns to let the votes tally. Right now I'm considering posting on Friday, and letting the votes tally over the weekend. I'd start animating on Monday, and get the results posted by the end of the week, ready for the next vote. I could shuffle the schedule based on when people are most active. When are you usually on DeviantArt?
Finally, I'd love to get more people interested in Sunset Fighters. I know that the audience will be small for the first fight, and one thing that will motivate me to do another will be an expanding audience. I'm already prepping a tumblr for it, but what else should I do to make the game accessible?
Let me know!
And if you haven't already, go vote for your favorite Fighter!
