I, like a lot of former veteran players, come back to the forums about once a month hoping against hope that Monumental will make even the slightest attempt at marketing Boundless. I may be a bit off, but sometime around March/April 2019 the game (granted, under a different developer) had a free weekend on Steam and the influx of players was amazing. It was a time like no other experience I have ever had in any other game; truly lightning in a bottle. Boundless is boundless only when it is what it was designed to be…a Massive Multiplayer Online game.
Nothing complex, no huge effort is required - just the slightest bit of “advertisement”.
Just my unsolicited two cents for a game I love(d)
Been awhile General, good to see you.
I think any sort of marketing should and will be done if and when the NPE is fixed/changed/updated. Doing it any sooner would be counterproductive.
We’ve had this conversation before, but I have had friends start playing and get completely frustrated because they were just told to point at a planet and port to it with little any knowledge the game has a whole MMO side or larger universe, then they just quit, haven’t even tried it again.
I myself quit after a few days of playing and only came back to paly due to a friend wanting me to continue playing with him.
Marketing? Hell yes… but only at the proper time.
@Ratchel AWESOME to see you as well
