Every developer needs to market their game. It can be a full time job and often, like explained in this video, it has to be done on the fly and part time by a few or one individual. Whether it is your full time job or you are juggling between development time or if you have a full time dedicated person, this video will help you with the ideas of getting the game idea out there, interacting with your target audience, and presenting the product.

Houston Game Developer Eric Kinkead was invited to the Dallas Corona Geek Meetup to share thoughts on this.

TweetOmni in Action

HGD is thrilled to introduce Virtuix along with their brilliant, already funded Kickstarter that will change the way players move in 3D with VR and Oculus Rift devices.

The Omni is a very affordable addition to the set that completes the entire experience. Designed here in Houston by Virtux, this motorless piece of machinary will transform the players siting still into actual players in the games envrionment.

The uses do not only benefit gamers, but exercise and education can be huge applications as well.

Within 3.5 hours their Kickstarter met the humble goal and we can definitely see why. The Omni enables you to move naturally and freely in virtual worlds.


HGD will stay on all Omni developments as they occur.

TweetIt appears that Face of Mankind: Fall of the Dominion just crossed the finish line with their Kickstarter! Congratulations to the whole team!

This Houston listed Kickstarter apparently takes place in futuristic 3D worlds!  Not much story information and hardly any developer information at the moment.

As soon as more develops we will let you know.
