Steam Trailer
« on: October 22, 2014, 09:32:29 PM »
Currently the only thing holding us back from trying to get Total Miner greenlit on Steam is lack of a good trailer video.

If anybody here is able to make us a high quality HD trailer or knows of someone who can, then please let me know via pm.

The person making the trailer will need:

Self reliance.
An HD capture card.
A high level of skill and creativity in editing videos.
Some previous work they can show us.
Access to some of TM's most exceptional creations.
A high level knowledge of the game.


We need an interesting, creative, high quality trailer to maximize our chances of getting greenlit asap. Obviously it will need to showcase the games best features.

Payment will be cash.

Please do not go off and make a trailer without speaking to me first via pm.

Go Ahead, Confirmation, Permission.

One of those should be correct.

Valve needs to approve you for release on their store. So they have a process called Greenlight. Games that want to be released there put up a page, with information, screenshots, videos, etc of their game.. and then Steam users vote on it. As far as anything more specific than that, I don't know. As best I can tell most of the developers that have been through Greenlight before don't really understand the exact process, so we can't really give you any specific details beyond that

I've got a few questions regarding making a trailer:


- Is this going to be something appointed to someone, who will then make the trailer? Kind of like we are submitting our "resumes/CVs" to you in terms of previous video footage, and you are "hiring" one of us to make it?
Or is it like a normal contest; everyone pitches in their best trailer and the winner chosen from the group receives the prize?

- Are there restrictions for the trailer in terms of copyright? I.e. can the trailer include songs that are not hosted on a royalty-free site, or can we put any song that our heart desires in the trailer?
Just want to make sure that we aren't breaking any rules in regards to "advertising" on Steam Greenlight.

- Are there specific game elements that you would want shown?
I assume the big features like scripting, skills, different game types, creative tools, and day/night cycles would probably want to be highlighted, but is there anything you want emphasized? Perhaps more on the "look what the community has built, and you can too!!" as opposed to "look what features the game has!!" or a combination of both?

- Is there a maximum length to the video, or will this be a grand long showcase of all Total Miner has to offer?
You make me smile!

I think the first option is the fairest and most workable.

- Are there restrictions for the trailer in terms of copyright? I.e. can the trailer include songs that are not hosted on a royalty-free site, or can we put any song that our heart desires in the trailer?

No copyrighted material can be used in the trailer.

I'm not sure yet. I expect there will be some discussion, but essentially, whatever makes the game as attractive as possible for greenlight.

Is there a maximum length to the video, or will this be a grand long showcase of all Total Miner has to offer?
I'll double check, but I suspect it will be around 2 minutes.

all words in trailer must be spelled correctly so it looks professional.
