Your website, your own domain name, your own traffic, your own email list, your own loyal fans (followers).
Getting Exposure, Creating Buzz... getting a following of fans.
But your game is a product. Take of your game developer cloths and put on your marketer, business owner, salesman suit. Because it matters nothing what you game is, where you try and sell it. What matters most is the amount of eyeballs that see it, like it, and wanna by it. That is your job. You have to get it infront of their eyeballs, the game must be good enough for them to like it, and you have to make them want to have it - NOW!
Games are not sold in shops, they are sold via social media. Sure money is exchanged in shops, but the decision to buy happens elsewhere.
The point: Spend less time making games, more time getting names.
First game will creating a small following and if you did a good job, they will by, continue to buy your games, and tell all their friends... its a snowball effect.
