Proper indie game PR campaigns… at a price that makes sense for indie developers
Looking for a top-notch PR campaign for your indie game? We offer both small- and large-scale indie game PR and marketing campaigns targeted at solo game developers and small studios. From one-off PR projects to full strategies, consultation, and more, we deliver quality and expertise for a fraction of the cost of our competitors.
Who we are
We’re a small indie game PR and marketing consultancy. With 15+ years of combined experience in indie games, the media, and marketing, we know how hard it can be for indie games to get noticed – but we also have tried-and-tested indie game marketing methodologies to get you the attention you deserve!
Led by former games journalist Lewis Denby (left – PC Gamer, Eurogamer, Rock Paper Shotgun), alongside communications manager Jon Calvin (right – Eurogamer, GameReactor), we’re a small independent consultancy dedicated to indie games. We’re based in the south of England, but we don’t have dreams of a swanky London office, because they’re expensive and we don’t need one. It means we can offer top-notch services at a fraction of the price you’d normally expect.

“Game If You Are came on-board at a vital time and helped us understand what the game needed in order to make an impact. Their director Lewis was very professional and helpful throughout, giving advice whenever needed. Lewis and his team helped us improve the game’s script, pitch and trailer. They went on to showcase the game to the media – achieving coverage in major publications and hundreds of thousands of YouTube views, and getting The Land of Pain onto Steam’s ‘trending’ list within hours of release!” – Alessandro Guzzo, creator of The Land of Pain
“As first-time indie game developers, we were struggling a bit to come up with a workable marketing strategy. Lewis’s guidance helped shaped our message and priorities. We’ve been able to reach out to reviewers and game enthusiasts not possible on our own. And that feedback has been invaluable! HEVN is so much better for it.” – Mat Matthews, Miga
