Game Special Offers--Sales -- Etc

I wasn't sure where to put this so will try a new thread.  Help me out if I need to do something different.  Maybe a main thread in Gaming News, Govs?

I just found a solitaire game from Orchid Games that they are giving away free.  It seems to be a Klondike Solitaire game with very nice graphics and music.  There are also stories, but you have to win a game first which I haven't done yet.

The website is orchidgames.com.

Re: Game Special Offers--Sales -- Etc

Artifex Mundi had just released a new game for purchase on their site. 

Left in the Dark:  No One on Board

It looks like a good game and is on sale for $4.99.

It's only for PC, so I am not buying right now because I'm trying to buy only Mac games.  I may change my mind though because it really looks good.

Re: Game Special Offers--Sales -- Etc

What I need is a good list of devs so I can go check out their sites.

Doesn't anyone have the lists from BIg Flush that I have seen...they were quite long? Would be to their benefit if we did a lot of purchasing direct from them?

Re: Game Special Offers--Sales -- Etc

I'll work on developers list of sites that sell their own games.

It's very good for a developer if we buy direct...they don't have to share 30% or more of the profits with Bigfish Games.

Artifex Mundi was over at the new Pond which is why I checked their site.

Re: Game Special Offers--Sales -- Etc

I believe big fish owns playfirst and spintop. Or they merged with them or something like that. There are probably others they have their hands in as well.

Re: Game Special Offers--Sales -- Etc

This is the beginning of the list....I'll add as I progress through my lists.

I'm updating with only developers, portals that sell their own games.  Developers from Barregar's list that are not listed here sell their games on their site with links back to Bigfish.  Some do not have websites that I can find or only sell through game portals. 

Alawar http://www.alawar.com - sells games from several developers
Ana Wiki Games  http://www.anawiki.com - sells using Digital River, Match 3, solitaire
Artiflex Mundi http://www.artifexmundi.com - sells own games using eseller
Awem (++) http://www.awem.com- sells it's games and has coins you earn to purchase more games
Fenomen http://www.fenomen-games.com - sells own games using mycommerce, also portal for other games linking to Bigfish
www.g5e.com - game portal that sells apps for iPad, iPhone, Android, Mac, Win8

Humble Bundle (++)  https://www.humblebundle.com -- not a game developer, but sells games often by independent game developers

That's all for right now.   Maybe others can add more.

This is an evolving thread as I have time to check and update it.

++sites that I have purchased from and recommend
---sites that I do not recommend
If no notation, I do not have personal experience with this site.

I'm copying this to new game sites because that is really where it should be located.

Re: Game Special Offers--Sales -- Etc

Oh, I like Awem games because if it is one that they developed, and when we buy from them and post our achievements, we earn coins to buy more of their games.  Right now I have 277 coins, enough for a new game or two.  So happy.http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/nervous.png


I also like Playrix but have never bought direct from them.

Re: Game Special Offers--Sales -- Etc

Hi Govs, I think Lia (I think that was Liasmani) has a full inventory of them, including all the new games being worked on.  She is at pondfriends.

Oh and surely Barre can add a few to the list too?  

I confess I had the list somewhere and lost it!http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/sad.png
