For the first time, I’m trying to put a lot of effort into social media. I’m posting on Facebook (which cross-posts to Twitter). I’ve updated my company blog. I’m posting on Google Plus, even, and starting to dig into other sites relevant to the game that I’m putting together.

I’ve been on this project almost full time for days now, and not one line of code has been written for it. Coming from a code-all-the-time background, it’s strange. Part of me wants to say that “I’m not getting any work done!”, but I know this part is also important; if no one knows about the game, after all, no one will support it.
