    hi, need some advice
    there's a game I love to play: http://sauerbraten.org/

    but they game is dying :(
    there are hardly new players coming in, just a bunch of egoistic old timers

    i would hate to see the game dead, its the only game I play

    pros of the game:
    * completely 100% free
    * runs on linux
    * low specs requirement
    * is fun to play

    cons:
    * shit graphics
    * dying community

    -----------


    well what i want to know is how to promote the game?
    i already pay for servers/domains within the game so my budget is already stretched. anyone willing to run some scraper/xrumer session for it (sorry. completely noob with blackhat tools)

    PS: Not willing to spend money. Just looking for advice

    I think you should add "competition" into the 'cons' section; most people play csgo nowadays.

    He meant that it also runs on Linux, not only on Linux.

    Things happen Donan. Games come and go. I hope OP takes this as an experience and move on, make (or find? not sure if he's the owner) a new game and even a better community.

    Been there. I still occasionally fire up Call of Duty Black Ops (the first one) for the Wii. There's still like 150 of us online at any given time, but it's dropped a lot in the past couple years since they remastered the old one, and, since, you know, Wii.

    hehe. i tried CS:go, worst $$ ever spent. I play Dota2, but that game takes 45 mins per match! And I can't leave mid-way. It annoys me.
    I like cube2, I can't help it :(

    It's the nostalgia, my friend. I've been there too. Mine had corrupt mods, extremely high coin prices and an already established community. It was horrible, and I didn't notice the flaws of the game and the time I was wasting until my mom brought me into reasoning. Looking back into that game made me a little depressed, half of my adolescence thrown away by a stupid game. Luckily, I view things differently now, I use the damage that the game caused me as motivation, to do something every day, to learn something new.
