    What are some ways to promote a game without spending money?

    Besides using twitter and social media, that is...

    Does anybody have any experience getting indie game enthusiasts to test play or even review GM projects?

    YouTube channel...

    Edit nevermind, just read no social media. Maybe go to Indie meetups in your area and network?

    I released a game a few months ago and of all the small 'indie/lowbudget' marketing I learn, I kept just one: Build a better game. More fun. So fun that it will spread like a contagious disease.
    Screenshots, appropriate hashtag and small video/demo. But FUN!
