Developer and Marketing, Quill Studios
Quilly (Susan) is making the visual novel A Summer with the Shiba Inu. Shortly before Steam Greenlight was replaced, she decided to give it a chance. As Quill Studios’ sole member, she took on both the developing and marketing roles. The game got coverage from Destructoid, and was also successfully Greenlit. Outside of VN developing Quilly is a graduate student in Economics.
Going through Steam Greenlight shortly before it was replaced by Steam Direct was a marketing opportunity to engage with potential audience and start work on marketing and getting coverage. This talk is about what I learned, and what worked and what did not.
