Hello FGL Community:

Our last game "We are not alone" is ready. One week has passed since I published the game, I got one bid the second day, is a good bid but I think the game can do it much better. On this 6 days 37 sponsor view the game but no one offer a bid. Researching ways to improve my views, I red on the blog the importance of game icon

At the beginning my first icon was this:


The problem I see with this icon is aliens are hard to see, I think (correct me if Im wrong), you don't know what are those red things until you play the game, am I correct?

So, in order to "improve" my views I decided to make a new icon, this:

I think this icon say by itself "hey aliens are attacking the earth !!!" . There is still one problem, in my game aliens doesn't use UFO's to move, my aliens move by itself on the space. But UFO's are easier to recognise than "red eye aliens with 3 legs".

What icon is more eye-catching? in order to improve my views. do you think change it was a good idea? or maybe should I roll back to the first version?. 

Thanks

New version's definitely more eye catching and I think it's fine as far as your choice of portrayal of aliens.  You're not misinforming people all that much since flying saucers are iconic and makes you think 'aliens' which is what your game is about.

Really like the second one. It tells a good story and the yellow beams contrast nicely with the blue background.

It seems that having such avatar you didn't have to write anything, empty post would be sufficientLaughing

Although the second one is better, you might want to revisit the color. It needs more harmony and information ordering, if it makes sense :)
