I’ve made a simulator game that gets a few people to join each day, but I don’t think that the game is social enough, as in players don’t invite their friends and play with them. I don’t know if the game isn’t cooperative or not, or if players simply don’t know that they can get better at the game if they play with a friend.
So how can I get players to invite friends? I made a sign in the first area of the game that prompts players to invite friends, and I explained on the sign that they get a buff in the game while playing with a friend. I also put a few interactable things around the map, like something where a player can start an event for everyone in the server, and another thing where players can donate in-game currency to build a structure, and when everyone donates enough, they all get a reward. Is this not enough?
What do you think? Here’s the game link:
