Effective communication is essential for attracting gamers, building a strong community, and turning players into customers. As a game developer, you need to keep your fans engaged by updating them on development progress, seeking their feedback, and responding to their opinions and criticism.
However, we understand that game development can be a time-consuming process, and you may not have the resources to handle all communication on your own. That's where we come in. As your publishing partner, we'll take the lead in communicating with your fans across multiple platforms, including Steam, Discord, Facebook, and Twitter. We'll respond to reviews, both positive and negative, with eloquence and sensitivity, keeping you informed of what gamers are saying about your game.
For the Chinese market, we'll cover Weibo and QQ, providing an added advantage in communicating with Chinese gamers. We understand the culture intimately and can help you avoid tricky PR disasters caused by cultural differences. Our goal is to ensure that your communication with gamers is seamless and effective, allowing you to focus on game development while we handle the rest.

Our goal is to build an impressive wishlist for your game, generating excitement and anticipation among gamers so that sales take off like a rocket at launch.
But our support doesn't end there. Unlike other publishers who only focus on the launch, we're committed to building long-term traction for your game. As long as you're still supporting it, we'll continue to promote your game and help you reach new players. At Spiral Up, we're invested in your success, and we'll work tirelessly to make sure that your game gets the attention it deserves.

Localizing your game can expand its reach to new markets and increase your potential revenue. However, many smaller game developers struggle with the cost of localization and end up missing out on this opportunity.
As your publishing partner, we understand the importance of localization and are committed to making it accessible to you. We will cover the initial cost of localization and ensure that your game is available in key markets that can make a difference to your sales. This means that you can focus on creating a great game without worrying about the financial burden of localization. Together, we can unlock the full potential of your game and bring it to players around the world.

Game development can be a daunting journey, with many challenges and uncertainties along the way. It's not uncommon for developers to lose sight of their original vision and become overwhelmed by doubts and questions. Is my concept good enough? Will players find my game fun and addictive? Is my combat system intuitive? Are my graphics eye-catching? How many bugs are lurking in my game? The list goes on.
At Spiral Up, we understand these concerns because we are game developers ourselves. That's why when we publish your game, we become your playtesters, QA team, technical consultants, and game design advisors. We work closely with you to ensure that your game meets the highest standards of quality and fun. No longer do you have to shoot in the dark or go it alone – you have a professional team with your best interests at heart. We'll help you spot and squash those bugs, and give you the feedback you need to make a great game.
We provide playtesting, quality assurance, game design advisory and technical support.
Typically, it takes us 2-4 weeks to respond to your submission. We understand that this may seem like a long time, but we receive a high volume of submissions and take a rigorous approach to reviewing each one. This involves carefully studying your deck, playtesting your demo (if applicable), and assessing the merits of the game. If you do not receive an acknowledgement email from us within 3 working days of submitting your game, please don't hesitate to reach out to ensure that we received it.
