Title: Show Your Support
Post by: Sizzle on October 01, 2008, 11:47:18 PM
Okay boys and girls, this is a serious thread and I'd like you all to take a few moments to read this.

Quintessence:The Blighted Venom:
A game I'm sure you've all well heard of. Reives has spent alot of time and effort into this game considering he's got things he has to do in real life to. (College, debate, etc)
I think it'd be nice if you guys could show your support for him. No I do not mean just donations though if you can that's fantastic and I'm sure he appreciates it. Though what I'm talking about is web advertisement.
You know what that is, signatures, banners, or a simple "Hey friend this game Quintessence is the bomb, here's the site.", anything you can to get the word around.

A few ways to show support:
Signatures:
Not just on the Quintessence forums, but any forums. A few good forums to do this are listed as followed:

Signature graphics can be found at: http://quintessence-tbv.com/support.html
Put a graphic along with a link to the Quintessence home page in your signature.
(To add a Signature graphic, right click the image you'd like to use, and copy the address, now in the signature text box add this code shown below.)
Code: [Select]
[IMG]PasteURLHere[/IMG]
Web Banner:
Own a website? Well add a Quintessence banner to it, it's the least you could do. You can find banners on www.quintessence-tbv.com, or create your own. Hell I'm sure if you told Reives you were going to advertise his site/game he'd make a custom one for you. It only takes a few minutes of your time and it goes a long way.

Tell a friend:
Another thing you could do, see all those people on your msn, aim, and yahoo buddy list?
You:"Hey Bob"
Bob:"Whats up?"
You:"I found this really cool game, I think you should try it out."
Bob:"Umm sure."
You:"Go to www.quintessence-tbv.com it's awesome, dude join the forums to, we can post random junk on there :P"
Bob:"Okay!"

It's not much, and it's more the reason you should be able to do it, and it makes a huge difference, that friend you referred could be the next JellyRebel or Sizzle :).

Review
(Credits to Arwym Starlight)
Anywhere you see the game Quintessence, be that here or anywhere else on the web, give a good and full honest review of the game in your spare time. Take it very seriously, as good reviews attract more players and help the author at the same time. :)

Report Bugs
(Credits to Arwym Starlight)
Remember to always post any bugs you find, even if there tiny grammar errors. A good quality game will insure new players come back, as most will see the creator is very determined and cares about the players.
Bug's can be reported here: http://quintessence-tbv.com/forum/index.php?board=6.0

Feedback
(Credits to Arwym Starlight)
If you find the game is lacking, in anything that may be, talk about it don't just keep it to yourself as Reives does care and will take time to read what you have to say. And most of the time will do something to make it better in any which way that may be. Plus it improves the overall gameplay thus attracting more players and shows you care about the game.
Feedback/Suggestions can be posted here: http://quintessence-tbv.com/forum/index.php?board=7.0

Register
Not exactly web advertisement, but come on...The "guest" that seemingly lurk around the forums...If you like the game, register an account and thank Reives. It's not hard to do at all and it shows gratitude and I'm sure Reives appreciates it. You never know, you may like the forum and start posting on a regular bases. Go here to register: http://quintessence-tbv.com/forum/index.php?action=register (http://quintessence-tbv.com/forum/index.php?action=register).

Okay, so with that said, I'm done...I'm sure I've only told you what you already know. But the point of this was to get your attention on the subject hoping you do something about it if you haven't already.

Thanks for your time all. :)

Heheh, thanks for the post and the enthusiasm. Normally the announcement board is for the admin's posts only, but in this case I'll let it stay for obvious reasons.

There are some rather good sites there that I haven't touched yet; will probably do so in the near future when I get some time.  :reivsmile: And I also need to update some user bars; the ones there are way too old.

Post by: Sizzle on October 02, 2008, 01:55:46 AM
Thanks, and no problem. :) Glad it can stay >< I wasn't sure where to post it, but I wanted everyone to see it so I posted here :p

EMINWEB IS ON THE LIST  :o

yes, please advertise there XD
Title: Re: Show Your Support
Post by: Sizzle on October 02, 2008, 02:31:43 PM
Yep I did that just for you Legacy :)
Title: Re: Show Your Support
Post by: Legacyblade on October 02, 2008, 02:50:03 PM
Whooo, I already tell people what an awesome game Quintessence is, so I can't really show much more support.
Title: Re: Show Your Support
Post by: Sizzle on October 02, 2008, 03:30:44 PM
Good :) I'm not very active on anyother forums, but I do tell my friends all the time about this game :) and I also encourage others to do that same :p I think that works? :)
Title: Re: Show Your Support
Post by: Legacyblade on October 02, 2008, 08:10:10 PM
Lol, the only friends I've gotten to play it are never active online :P
Title: Re: Show Your Support
Post by: Reives on October 02, 2008, 08:23:27 PM
There are quite a few big places on that list like phanx, gamespot and the like that I haven't touched yet - will do so in the future.
Title: Re: Show Your Support

Just posted it on Neoseeker a bit ago:
http://www.neoseeker.com/forums/22121/t1242923-quintessence-blighted-venom/

Registered on eminweb, going there in the future. c: Same with gamespot and a few other places.
Title: Re: Show Your Support
Post by: Sizzle on October 04, 2008, 02:43:39 AM
Perhaps that where the guest came from :p
Title: Re: Show Your Support
Post by: Legacyblade on October 04, 2008, 10:29:33 AM
Alright, that'd be a good idea, Reives. The more Quintessence gets advertised, the more people will play it  :D
Title: Re: Show Your Support
Post by: Arwym (آرویم) on October 04, 2008, 06:13:40 PM
This is good.    ;D

But I would like to add two or three more ways of supporting Quintessence:

1) Reviewing the game in a fair and objective manner.  Taking it seriously.

2) Reporting bugs, glitches, errors, and any other problems you find with the game.

3) Very much like the first, but... remember to offer constructive feedback.  If you don't like something, or if you think something can be improved, please say so, explaining why, and what you think can be done to improve.

There you go.  :)

Thanks guys. :) Much appreciated. I still haven't posted on the other few forums yet, but I will soon.

I got three things.

As for the quote says, it was too bad that did not work with a friend of mine. He prefers other games (ie. counterstrike, etc)

Someone made a review of this game at the newspaper forum in Amaranthia. (Love)

Its my siggie now! (huzzah)

This monday on my classmate, who like RPG:
(Translated. Sry if in translate is something rude, but i can't good translate our common speak of Hight school students from Prag, 'cause we have own dialect...)


Me: Hey! I played on weekend one great story-game in RPG style made by one litle band of young folks. It's have great story filled by originl graphics, music and many more.
She: Sounds good.
Me: Yeah and it's freeware and have about only 100 "Megas"(meanet Mb) but when i started it, I can't stop until 4 A.M. you should try it. I'll write you address.
She: Thanks

I sent most of my facebook friends a message semi-advertising Quintessence, and posted the link to both sites, put the link in my gMail status, and it seems that none of my friends care. I even told a friend personally and he said: "Nah, I don't like RPGs."

I'm a failure at this!
Title: Re: Show Your Support
Post by: abigailian on May 29, 2009, 12:32:17 AM
I only have a couple friends who I think would get into Quintessence. One of them seems to want to try it, just hasn't gotten around to it. Still might come around though!
Title: Re: Show Your Support
Post by: mepwnn on May 29, 2009, 12:40:51 AM
I tried again, this time via FunSpace application.

This was the original note:
Spoiler: show
People, I do not like to be ignored. Consider going to the following site and playing a game from there. YOU WILL NOT REGRET IT, I CAN ASSURE YOU THAT.

http://freebirdgames.com

If you think you will not like it, play the games anyway. I thought I wouldn't like Q-TBV, but ended up being a fan.

Games are: Quintessence - The Blighted Venom, The Mirror Lied, and Do you Remember my Lullaby.

Don't forget to join the Freebird Games forums and facebook group.

It would help if you told me you joined or something, and it would also help if you told a friend about Freebird Games.

Cheers.
~Christopher "mepwnn" Wong

If this doesn't work, I'll have to resort to drastic measures.

A school-wide email. That will get everyone's attention, hopefully.

Heheh, thanks a lot ya guys! c: I really appreciate it. Just showing them is great enough, no need to push too much. :P A school-wide email might be scary, hahah, I didn't know you could do that.
Title: Re: Show Your Support
Post by: mepwnn on May 29, 2009, 12:53:13 AM
The school-wide email idea (maybe only friend wide, but who cares) originated when our science teacher was fired, and everyone emailed the village H students to petition to get him back. Furthermore, a gag email has further increased my contacts list. I now have over 400 contacts in my gMail contacts list

I've told my brother (who doesn't really like it, but I'm still working on him), one of my friends (who is now totally obsessed), my classmates (who also didn't like it), and I'm going to tell another classmate (who will probably like it). Hooray for Q-tbv advertisments!

I wrote a review on RMN, rambled a lot about how Quintessence is not really an RPG and gave a score what this game deserves instead of one star or even three stars. If anyone happens to wander around RMN and has the time, check it out and comment on it (LEX is my nick there). It's my first review and probably has tons of various mistakes, so any kind of input would be helpful.
Okay, before starting to sound like I'm advertising myself, I tried to show my support this way, as I really found this game to be fantastic and it seemed that it needs a fair review (on RNM, at least) as the previous ones took a rather conservative approach.
Of course, I aimed to be objective and not a fanboy, as it wouln't be a review but some misplaced advertisment otherwise.

Anyway: Great game, and I eagerly await the last three chapters (:

The quintessence-tbv.com was the website prior to Freebird Games. Hence, most of the q-tbv.com links you see at the first page are all expired. It could explain why it would "contain some sort of virus." ;)

And this:

2 weeks ago, I shared all Freebird games in my school. As a result, almost 95% do not like RPGs. Only 3-5 people who like RPGs (including me). Most of the reason they are boring, too much dialogue. Someone say it's an RPG game outdated. I almost fighting with the person who said it. :reivsweat:
Spoiler: show
I hope though that people do not like RPGs, but do not insult the game

It was all just my way of helping sharing RPGs.
I will try to sharing in Facebook.  :)

Post by: EgotisticalRaven on December 13, 2013, 09:40:28 AM
I wish I had more friends to share the Freebird games with.....  :(

I bought most of my friends on Steam TtM, and I have convinced an acquaintance who liked TtM to play Quintessence. I tried to convince my friends to play Quintessence, but they didn't want to.

TtM is easy to share around, such a shame though that Quintessence is a bit harder to, it is such a great game. A lot of people go on about how great TtM is, but I think that Quintessence has a great, if not better, storyline than TtM.

Note to self: I say, 'great' way too much.

I wish I can promote quintessence, but the http://quintessence-tbv.com (http://quintessence-tbv.com) is somehow expired and I cannot get the signature from it

I am quite active at some other forums and I would like to post the banner in my forum's signature

p.s. so any guys can share banners here?

I guess I'm kinda selfish in this regard then.

I think treasures are meant to be found, not shared. Only those who went through the effort of finding it deserve to enjoy it and are able to appreciate it. The rest don't matter.

Too many people coming across this would ruin it anyway.
