sorry for the newb question, but which is the best way to promote our games? I’ve recently published my first game on kongregate, but it barely got 100+ plays in the first two days (now it’s already in 2nd page in the puzzle games → newest).
I don’t like opening threads like “Check out my new game!” as it would be spam, but more than linking it to my friends or on other forums i write more often, what is the best way to promote it?

But yes, there is not much way to promote your games. The only solution is to keep making games and keep getting better at it. Kongregate is all based on rating. If you get a good rating, you can appear in Hot New Games and get thousand of plays. And if you get even better ratings, you can be homepaged.
It is best to promote them on other websites. If you are a member of any other forums or groups which contain at least a few people who enjoy playing games, asking them to give it a go and give you feedback. If you don’t mind the possibility of a low rating backlash, you could consider posting it in some of the more active internet boards. It’d probably get you more plays but the people may not be the most generous with the number of stars that they give you.
