So I've talked about forums a few times, but I think it's critically important to the further growth of Harem. While I'm absolutely astounded at the support I get through Patreon and the player response to the blog, but one thing I always want more of is player forum participation. When someone looks at my blog or Patreon page, they're already a player and it's like I'm preaching to the converted. But a forum post, more importantly a player recommendation, can get a new player. And that's crucial if I want to turn Harem into a sustainable project.
So I'm putting out a challenge. I want to see 10 'reviews' of Harem in forums. While I don't want to create a form letter for this, I'd like to see people talking about what they like about Harem. About how they think it could be improved. About what they'd like to see developed further. About what they think separates Harem from the other indie developed adult RPG games out there. I'm active in a few different locations, here's the threads I'm active in.

Also, if you create or point me to a thread on a board that I'm not on would definitely count as long as you leave feedback about Harem on it and link it to me here in comments.
And there would be a reward for your work! If I get the 10 reviews, I'll bump the public release of 4m2 up a week. From 7/29 to 7/22. So if you've been wanting to support the ongoing development of Harem for a while but can't do so financially, here's a great chance for you to both help me promote Harem and get earlier access to the new 4m2 content as well! I just ask that you take the time to write out something meaningful. Something that someone whose never played Harem would read, pause and take the time to download and try the game!
If this does generate more conversations and interest in the forums, I'd definitely be interested in making this a recurring challenge with the same reward ongoing. Although I will admit that I might raise the bar over time ;)
