Here's what some of our clients and partners have to say!

“Black Shell Media understands strategic game publishing and has an in-depth knowledge of game development. They have provided us with valuable tools and information especially for a start-up independent game studio like us. I would very much recommend Black Shell Media to independent game developers/teams/studios out there. It is an exciting and great experience working with them.”

April Poland

Producer, Dungeon Souls

“Working with Black Shell Media has been a great experience. As an indie-minded team that thoroughly knows the ins-and-outs of both the development and marketing side of making games, their insights and marketing reach have been invaluable for getting my project in front of the right people. Without their help and publishing support, This Book Is A Dungeon likely would have never made it to Steam, nor would it have found the enthusiastic niche audience that it has on the marketplace. You couldn’t ask for a nicer, more knowledgeable team of folks to have on your side.
Nathan Meunier

Developer, This Book Is A Dungeon

“Starting out as a fledgling developer, Black Shell Media allowed me to kick start my dream and jump into the business I so longingly desired to work in. They’re some really hardworking guys, as well as friends!


Ben James

Developer, Zombie Party

“Black Shell Media is a perfect partner for the independent game developer. They have been professional and honest every step of the way, and have also helped teach me a lot about the process of game publishing as well as distribution. I would happily work with them again.” Ilya Chkoliar

Lead Developer, After The End: Harvest

“It was a pleasure to work with Black Shell Media. They performed the services we had discussed and did not over-promise. Their techniques are legitimate, effective and moral. I would recommend Black Shell Media if you value promotion while keeping your brand’s reputation in mind. Krzysztof Koźmik

Founder, Home Of The Underdogs

“Our primarily technical team needed an indie friendly, professional marketing service that delivers. We reviewed our options and selected Black Shell Media for our initial growth campaign. Black Shell Media delivered a fast quality service and I’ll happily recommend them to my fellow indies.” James McGhee

Founder, Heathen Engineering Ltd.

“Black Shell Media got us a lot of exposure in a very short time.  After we stalled on Steam Greenlight for weeks, we talked to Black Shell and they launched us into the top 100 in a matter of days. I would definitely recommend checking out Black Shell Media.  They will help you reach more gamers immediately.Jason Jacobitz

Development Lead, Arcanity Inc.

“Having worked in the Indie field for several years now, we always found marketing to be one of the biggest challenges. Not always having sufficient marketing budget and finding it difficult to commit to one form of advertising has led our company to miss many marketing opportunities.

“That changed when we started working with Black Shell Media. They are the first company that we worked with that really understands what Indie developers need and what they can afford. For a fraction of the cost of all other advertising options, the guys at Black Shell showed us great and quick results.”

Konstantin Fomenko

CEO, Reverie World Studios

“I used Black Shell Media’s Twitter Growth service since my audience was not growing at all. The connections that I made since I started using their service has added so much value to the message that I promote to my followers. I couldn’t be happier with the level of service I received from the guys at BSM.” Sebastian B.


“Black Shell Media delivered on their promises. I now have a lot more contacts in the industry and more people listening to my Tweets.” 



David Salazar

Marketing Professional

“Working with Black Shell Media has been a great experience. Being an indie game developer my budget is very tight. Black Shell Media was able to provide great value for the amount of money I could spend.”


Ben Kane Johns

Lead Developer, Tumbly Weed

“Black Shell Media has impressed me both with their professionalism and their want to actually do the absolute best for me as their customer.   Even though I’m a fairly no-name developer, Black Shell Media not only took the time to thoroughly review my product Sumo Revise but also offered me quite a bit of encouragement on where the rather bizarre project was heading.  

I have been surprised and pleased with their “developer-comes-first-over-money” attitude in every aspect of their business.”

John Szymanski

Development Lead, Sumo Revise

“Black Shell Media has tremendously helped my project Seeders get Greenlit on Steam. Not only did they promote the game to a much wider audience than I could ever reach, but they also helped me to clean up my game story and make the feature list feel more compelling. They took the feature list of my game and reworded it in a way I always wanted to but never could find the words. They clearly presented the promotion plan with a schedule and executed it flawlessly. They also care about the games they promote – they took my game demo for a test-drive and pointed out some flaws that needed to be fixed. Stuff I was aware of, but did not consider too important. I look forward to working together with them on my next project as well. Milan Babuškov

Development Lead, Bigosaur

It was a pleasure to work with Black Shell Media. They provided an excellent service for both the Twitter growth program and targeted ads. Communication was always prompt and clear, and I will definitely be using Black Shell Media’s services when we release our next game! Danny Jugan

President & Lead Designer, Axis Games

Black Shell Media communicated with me promptly and delivered all of our contracted requests on time. I would likely work with them again when we are ready for Greenlight. Alexander Lau

Chief Executive Officer, Robotic Potato LLC

“Black Shell Media is a legitimate, honest publisher that did exactly as promised. Not only did they do everything we wanted, but they exceeded our expectations with their very excellent service.  Black Shell Media understood that our team did not have much of a budget, but they still followed through and helped us out every bit of the way. I would highly recommend Black Shell Media if you are looking to get your game out to the players in the best possible way!” Fenner Stevens

Project Manager, Drixy Games

“As a solo developer, I want to concentrate on game development, not business, social media or promotion. I can’t wear all the hats required to bring a game successfully to market. That’s where Black Shell Media compliments me perfectly. While I focus on game creation, they focus on bringing me to market. Black Shell Media has made good on their promises and my current game is coming to Steam. They have been honest, professional and friendly. I highly recommend Black Shell Media and look forward to working with them again on my next game.

Kevin Murphy

Lead Developer, Zytron II

[Black Shell Media] helped us get Greenlit within 8 days of getting involved with them. I would highly recommend working with them […] especially if you don’t have much knowledge/experience with marketing––I certainly thought I knew enough with my business education, and that wasn’t nearly enough! Nicholas Laborde

CEO, Raconteur Games

Black Shell Media was a blessing. Their experience, reliability and friendliness helped my dreams come true. They have a solution for everybody, even for a budget-less and beginner developer like I was. With Black Shell Media, you are in good hands. They take great care of you, your project and its potential buyers, and I couldn’t recommend them more. I’m already looking forward to working with them again in the future! Simone Bellon

Development Lead, Onni Interactive

Working with Black Shell Media is a pleasant experience…they are a great choice for indie developers.” Noah Stolk

Lead Developer, Void Invaders

“Black Shell Media helped me bring my game from absolute zero to actually generating sales and drawing in players.” Jan Zizka

Lead Developer, The Adventures of Mr. Bobley

Black Shell did a terrific job helping our start-up navigate the consumer publishing industry and we credit a lot of our success to them. I’ve always found the BSM team to be professional, thoughtful and open-minded.

Ryan Hewer

Lead Developer, Rogue State

“We are having a great time working with Black Shell Media and learned a lot about the process of game publishing. Black Shell Media has offered us some great support with putting us on the market.” Adam Smits

Development Lead, Inferno Studio

“Black Shell Media has been a great pleasure to work with. I’ve looked to them for my project’s publishing and marketing needs and they are extremely professional, organized and transparent. It quickly becomes obvious that these guys know what they’re doing.”

Development Lead, Defiant Child Games

When we initially got in contact with Black Shell Media we were struggling to get noticed on Steam Greenlight and it looked as if we would never get processed through, however after getting accepted into the Black Shell Media family they provided us with immense support and before we knew it, we got Empires Of Creation Greenlit!

Since then Black Shell Media has become our greatest ally. They have more than tripled our twitter follower count, they have provided hands-on support for improving our game, they have maintained high levels of professionalism and most importantly, they have become close friends to Bundle Of Sticks Studios.

Jamie Cushenan

Development Lead, Bundle of Sticks Studios

“Black Shell Media has been the exact resource we needed while building our game’s awareness. We came to them in the doldrums of a Greenlight campaign and trying to find a way to kick up activity again. Within 2 days of starting, our game was Greenlit!” Colin Dwan

Development Lead, Prologue Games

As the typical indie developer facing challenges in marketing, I found the perfect publishing partner in Black Shell Media. They did a great job generating exposure for my game. They are as passionate about promotion as I am about development, and now I get to focus solely on my game. We have the perfect symbiosis! Daniele Ferraro

Development Lead, Capribyte Studios
