Video: Getting your indie game noticed by the press

Gamasutra editor and former IndieGames.com EIC Mike Rose offers tips on what helps an indie game get press coverage in an increasingly crowded market.
"You need something that is going to make your game more interesting than everybody else's."
At GDC Europe 2013, Gamasutra UK editor Mike Rose shares the results of over 100 journalists surveyed, who said "an interesting developer story" is the most important element for getting coverage for a new studio and game. In this free GDC Europe 2013 talk titled 'Getting Your Independent Game Noticed in 2013' (courtesy of GDC Vault), Rose blueprints the perfect 20-second pitch for press, with tips such as providing a link to the game or a high-quality video of it in action, all in an email written with a believable, personal touch. Mike Rose goes into more depth about his study in this Gamasutra article.
