  1. Hai Empire! c:

    I'm going to try and make this quick,
    As some of you may know, I have a youtube channel, called Alice The Fox (based off of my name). Although it is still a very big WIP....
    As the title suggests, I need help setting up. And as the poll suggests, I need help decided what games to make videos on
    If none of the games in the poll seem interesting to you, post it here for me! If you have a game you want me to play, as well as the ones on the list, post it here also!

  2. Try osu!, thats what my Youtube channel has... Also this thing below \/
  3. I say just play whatever you want. It'll show if you don't enjoy playing the game (or recording it). Also; subbed :p

  4. unpopular startup games help, reason being that you are the go-to place to get the originality popcorn out.
    maybe you could do popular games, reason being impatience. if you want more gameplay faster, you search more channels.
  5. I highly suggest just playing games YOU Enjoy. no one likes to watch videos where the person is all bummed when playing it.

    also sometimes a Horror game is perfect to start a channel. but keep in mind once you start your kinda commited to play more horror games.

    My youtube channel is based on strategy games such as Brave frontier. (but due to a crappy computer and no capture card mainly IOs games are what I play.
  6. If you need any help/guidance for ANYTHING YouTube related, my PMs are always open. :)

  7. Play my minecraft custom map :p
    Also, I would love more old school games. Like RCT, the original The Sims or Simcity 3000. If you really want to go back (what I would find awesome) you could also go back to DOS and play games like sam & max, gobliiins and day of the tentacle.
    I don't really know if that's your thing though :rolleyes: Obviously you should do something you like.
  8. Do let's plays on indie games.


  9. Just do what I do. Upload and just work on from there. So far it been working for me. I has 6 subs and 51 views total.
  10. What also helps is doing the Empire since my first video on the Empire got 15 views. So there is a good place to start maybe.
  11. My tips for starting/maintaining a channel:
    - Only do things you LOVE to do.
    You will get people asking you to play games that you don't like. Just be honest to them and tell them why you are not going to play those games. If you were going to spend your time on something you dont like, you are wasting everyones time.

    - Don't be scared for having videos that are not perfect, we all got to start somewhere.
    When I first started out, I had a low quality, no intro, no outro, no introduction video. But I had fun making the video, and I had 0 knowledge of how to improve videos. Within the very first hour, I got so much feedback, that I was dedicated to make my next video even better and better! When you accept that making good content is a continues process, you are dedicated to create things that you love.

    - Try to have a video schedule you can maintain.
    Theres nothing worse than channels posting 10 videos on one day, and then have a radio silence for 6 months.
    I try to have 2 videos out each week and that works/worked fine for me. (currently only 1 video each week).

    I hope you ENJOY every second that you spend creating awesome content. Please contact me if you have any questions, I'll be happy to help! Feel free to check out my channel by clicking on my banner, maybe that can give you some ideas as well :)
  12. Don't go to my channel then >.>

  17. What ever mate. I don't have time for you.
  18. I'd rather you not be rude on my thread, thank you

    What would everyone think about monthly giveaways? Maybe games, or small requests (I'm horrible, I know)

  19. How would you do them? It would draw more people to your channel, as long as you execute it right.
  20. Hmmm, not sure to be honest
    I might use a random number picker and count down the comments, but I'll have to look into some options
