Darwinia was public we did attempt to shop it around
some publishers, to see what kinds of deals would
be available and if they would work to our advantage.
As part of that process we put together this 6 page
promotional document, printed on lovely ring-bound
double-sided card. They really did look awesome. We
even had a mini-cd tacked to the back of the promo
pack with videos and (eventually) a demo for people
to try out.
doc is aimed at publishers and investors, so there
is a certain bullshit factor involved, but we think
it's still a very cool representation of the game.
It served its purpose in that it secured us a number
of demonstrations with some major publishers and got
us into the door at a lot of very respectable places
that wouldn't normally have listened to us.
for a number of months the three of us travelled all
around the country with the biggest and heaviest laptop
you have ever seen, armed with the latest demos of
the game and our carefully constructed powerpoint
presentations explaining what a great investment we
were. Of course, none of them were interested in taking
Darwinia after we'd finished our demonstrations, but
that's another story :)
