Where is everybody?
Gaetano96Lv 13 stylist
Where tf is everybody? I get that it has been a rough period, lately, but this site is too amazing, and it deserves a lot more ppl than it currently has.
If I had to think of a strategy to help, perhaps we should find somebody famous enough to advertise it. I hate ads, but sometimes they're necessary, and duh, how else would you hear about a product, unless you advertised for it? The only reason I came to know of this beautiful website was through Keffie (kfaraday) advertising for it, and I'm very glad she did, but now I'm emotionally invested in this website and tbh I wanna do what I can to help, because I genuinely think this website can help a lot of people overcome their art blocks in a new, creative, rewarding way, while also helping them find a lovely community to spend some quality time with. If you guys have ideas lemme know.

I made a Patreon post about this, and I considered making a topic. It's a super valid question. Here are capital letters and proper punctuation, cuz this is SERIOUS MODE.

Right now, at this moment, the site is basically dead. It'll rise from the ashes eventually, but there's some stuff that's gotta happen first. I'm all the way focused on finding a better source of income right now. I need to escape my life circumstances and find a way to gain independence. The 50 bucks a month on Patreon helps, but I obviously need something reliable. And it's not going well yet. My sleep disorder is such a broken leg in terms of finding a good job. I'm searching remote only right now, and COVID has made that amenable, but it's still ridiculously hard.

The site was the most active in December, when there was the snowflake hunt and exclusive battle rewards (although I'm trying to avoid FOMO as a mechanic in the future). Gravity Break's ACTUAL launch will look a lot more like that, with a bigger focus on the ARG and community involvement. There's still a mountain of development between here and then, although we're closer than ever before.

Once I feel comfortable enough, my plan is to hit up a bunch of game journalists about Gravity Break. The problem is, that's basically a one-time trigger. GBM has to be feature-complete before I do that, or else we'll get a big wave on an incomplete site and a gradual dropoff as people wait for me to finish features that'll take (potentially) years to realize.

Oh that's very fair. Honestly the site doesn't seem to be in a beta, from my perspective (and probably others' as well) it feels finished, and it feels like a very lovely and unique product already; but I understand you have new plans for it and I'm very very excited to see it all happen! Also asking game journalists is a good plan imo.

I'm sorry to hear you've been struggling with finding a source of income, and a new life routine, I feel ya, unfortunately it's pretty much the default issue for lots of people in these troubling times, including myself. :/ But despite that, I know that good will prevail, it just needs some time and effort to happen. I think the shitstorm has to end soon, it can't possibly last more than this. Somebody, somewhere, will do something about it, surely. I'm not gonna get in the politics argument, but I definitely would change some stuff if I had a say in all this, just like many people would.

Either way, my point is, if you want my opinion: don't give up on your dreams. Especially this dream in particular. There's a lot of possibilities with this website (along with BotB and other similar sites, if others even exist yet), and I think I speak for everybody when I say we all absolutely adore how this project is turning out to be. It's beautiful. I think once the word gets out, people won't easily give up on GravityBreak, it's a tool like no other, for artists, and hopefully for the fans too. It makes the process of artmaking fun, challenging, refreshing, and most importantly, connected with others.

Making art and posting it on most social media just doesn't feel right anymore, to me, there's way too much censorship and other BS right now, like nonsensical trends, toxic users, art stealers, and whatnot. Social medias became real messy. But here, people actually care about the content that's posted, and what it means to them, and while this may have to do with the fact that the community is pretty much solely made of artists, this also means they will inspire and connect to each others more, which in turn encourages people to build on things, rather than destroy things all the time. If there's criticism, on here, chances are it's gonna be constructive; not an echo chamber, nor mindless hate, but a balanced kind of criticism.

Before I started making content on GravityBreak and BotB, not too long ago, I'm not gonna lie, I was a bit depressed and had art block. Now look at me. I'm making new stuff like never before, and I'm proud of it all, and I only have you all to thank for it. I finally have a place I can call a home for artists, one that gives you something new to do every day, instead of working against you like social media platforms tend to do nowadays.

So yeah, don't give up on your dreams. I'm really excited for the journey ahead of you and us all. But that's enough capital letters and proper punctuation for one day!
Take care y'all ~ < 3

i was mainly interested in draw battles and those seem to be happening less now. i am busier now and have less bandwidth for putting effort into internet shenanigans but i still check the site on the regular to see what's going on, and would still participate if more stuff of interest to me was happening

i really like this website and thinks its really cool, but its kinda big and daunting in my eyes, and maybe others see it the same way? it intimidates me in a good way though, like i want to know gravity break better, not that i really wanna run away or ignore it

i want to see this work and grow!!!!!

maybe the strat is just, share this with people who arent entirely from the botb sphere of the internet. it feels like most of the people here are botbrs, myself included, so sending this to friends who arent botbrs might bring in more people. like, its a diferent website so it would stand to reason there'll be a slightly diferent audience

gravity break is really cool i think but i basically haven't made songs in some months, aside from a few that are for a project. if i ever start making songs again i will gladly start joining battles too (i REALLY hope i do) (i keep stubbornly trying)
