Today has been… one of those days. Not particularly for us
directly, but apparently there were a lot of games coming out today and
in general just lots of craziness going on in the world of gaming.
Distributors moving office locations, distributors out of the country
they’re based in, distributors drowning under the weight of a dozen
indie releases on one day, and so forth.
So, yeah. It’s been one of those days. The good news is that GamersGate got the 1.0 build up super early today, both in regular buy-one-copy format as well as in four for the price of three format. They’re running a 10% off sale on the game for the next week, too, in celebration of launch. So that’s all settled!
Turns out, we’re doing the same thing — our store
has options to buy singly or to get the four-for-three option, and
we’re also running the 10% off sale for the next week. We got our stuff
going later in the day, after much wrangling with the four-for-three
thing in particular. Like I said, one of those days.
Next up came MacGameStore.com with the game launching, and also doing a 10% off sale for the next week.
that’s it for today. Gamestop is still carrying the beta version at
the moment, but their pricing has updated and if you buy the beta you
can use the in-game updater to get to the launch version. They’re very
close to having the 1.0 version fully released, but didn’t quite make it
in under the buzzer today.
Same deal with Steam. That’s another one where the build and store page and so forth are just almost
done, but didn’t quite make it in under the buzzer. But tomorrow’s
another day, and like I said it’s so close I thought it was going to be
tonight. But now it’s late and I’m heading for some sleep, so if it’s
tonight then I’m going to be missing it until the morning.
about this — I know that a lot of folks were waiting on the
distributors that didn’t quite make it in under the buzzer today, but
it’s just one of those things. Hopefully things will speed along much
quicker tomorrow. Knock on wood!
