Hi all !

@EvilDragon : a new racing game from PixelHeart is ready for pledges on Kickstarter:


There are some in-game sponsoring options I think could be of interest to you and your shop :)

We got cool in-game branding opportunities available !
With various options you are able to sponsor a race team, sponsor a track, sponsor a car and even own your own team... Arcade Racing Legends is fun, easy to play and super entertaining. It's a great way for video games fans to promote their company.

Just like a normal Race Track or Championship, you and your company can be featured as sponsor or patron.
Sponsor opportunities :

Track Branding side banner: 499 euros. Sponsor races and promote your company on the side banners that pave the way till the finish line. They are all over the place !

Inflatable Tire Arch: 599 euros. Sponsor the Check Point ! All racers sprint under it, let your colors be seen on every press photo. We will create your very own promotional module and incorporate it in the game.

Elevated Neon Sign: 699 euros. Sponsor a race track and we will build a giant neon sign to promote your company. High end sponsoring, high visibility and great impact.

Car Branding: 750 euros. Sponsor a Racing Team and get your colors on the tracks...Playable vehicle included in the basic RACER Cars

game pack. All gamers will be able to race with your car.

NOW, You are a step away from creating your very own Racing Team...

RACING TEAM Special - VIP Car : 3000 Euros. This sponsoring option gives you access to your VIP Racing Team. With a personalized VIP CAR, unlockable with a secret cheat code, you can now share your Personal Racing Team with your friends or just keep it secretly to yourself. It's all up to you... What will you do?
What do you think ?

Cheers, Magic Sam

EDIT: new sponsoring prices on July 5th :)

I had CRTs running at over 1440 lines back when they were a thing, but I guess you actually mean TV resolutions, which only has about 240 lines (in the US) if you drive it progressively (or a theoretical 480 lines if you display different frames in each of the interlaced fields).

Hi all,

That's the kind of in-game sponsoring I'm talking about:

Code:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/2035357359/arcade-racing-legends-dreamcast/posts/2551357?ref=ksr_email_backer_project_update_registered_users
Just for Games (https://www.justforgames.com/) will have their own car in Arcade Racing Legends.

I think this could be a nice opportunity for @EvilDragon to promote his shop and / or the Pyra :)

Cheers, Magic Sam

Hi all,

Gamoniac.fr just joined the fun:

@EvilDragon : will we ever see a dragon themed VIP car in this game ? :p

Cheers, Magic Sam

P.S: I understand 3k€ for a VIP car in a Dreamcast game is a lot of money. A 850 499€ dragonbox.de side banner would be just as cool though :)

Paying money for appearing on a niche boring video game on a niche outdated non selling console.

Nice.

@Xcl4m4t10n : I love your optimism ;) :p

Please don't forget that @EvilDragon sells, even publishes "niche boring game(s) (and accessories) for that niche outdated non selling console":

https://www.dragonbox.de/en/201-for-sega-dreamcast
https://www.dragonbox.de/en/cables/485-dreamcast-rgb-scart-cable-cables-4260416651500.html

Quite a large chunk of our community here on these boards belongs to that retro-gaming niche, and dragonbox.de caters for it. Some of the few weirdos who will buy that "boring game" could see dragonbox' logo in-game and potentially become regular customers, bringing in more money for the Pyra in the process. For a budget ranging from 850 499 to 3k€, that's (relatively) cheap, clever marketing in my book :D

And that "niche outdated non selling console" is also doing quite well if you ask me ;)

Yeah, I get what you are saying. That there will not be many eyeballs, but at least these eyeballs, for example, a game review on youtube, will be the right kind of geeks.
Sure, I'd like to put an array on the moon and display the Pyra logo together with some text like: "Hack the planet". It would reach lots of newspapers... but it's expensive. Something cheaper would be a rocket to the tesla in space and glue a Pyra to the dashboard...
And just for 500, you can make history...

other ways you can help: stickers for pedestrian crossings (where you can watch the pole for at least half a minute before it gets to green)

Hi all,

The game is now funded (25k€ pledged, and raising).

REPLIC-ART, CASH EXPRESS, STORYBIRD STUDIO, TOKYO SUSHI and Rush On Game will also have their own VIP cars in-game:

Hi @levi :)

I'm not sure I understand your post... Am I spamming the boards with news regarding that game ? Or did you mean the over abundance of brands in that game makes it look like spam ?

Cheers, Magic Sam

Certainly more the latter than the former. Cash Express seems to be a payday loan firm with retail establishments (so even more punitive credit rates I guess). The other brands seem less problematic though, as far as I can tell. The way you capitalised most of the brands did put me in mind of a spammers post, but you're clearly not a spammer.
