Newbie developer question

Hello all,

I am about to release an iPhone game, and I wonder in which forum do I have to post about it to hope to get it listed in pages like "out now" (http://toucharcade.com/2015/10/07/ou...ce-miner-wars/) and "coming tonight" (http://toucharcade.com/2015/10/07/ne...ng-tonight-66/).

This latest page also says "Here's the full list of new games that have been posted to our forums. If your game isn't here, you probably didn't post a thread for it!" but it's unclear which forum .

Thank you!

Emanuele

Hi Emanuele,

I have released my first game, Cavernaut, not long ago. I announced it first in "Games and Apps > Upcoming iPhone and iPad Games" (several days ahead of the release). Immediately following release I posted it in "Games and Apps > iPhone and iPad Games".

I also sent out emails to a lot of sites that cover mobile games, again some time ahead of the actual release. TouchArcade for example has an email address listed under the "Submit a Tip" link at the top of each page. That got me a bit of coverage on some of the sites, like an announcement post here on TA, and getting listed in the "Upcoming Games" post for that week.

Cheers, and good luck with your release,
Jan
