A group of developers have banded together to celebrate their freedom to price their games how they like within specific online stores. Most online app stores give developers this freedom, but others such as the Amazon App Store do not. Amazon allows a developer to set a recommended price for their app but reserves the right to change that price whenever they want. I can’t really think of another app store besides the Amazon App Store, so this coalition almost feels like an anti-Amazon App Store celebration to me.
Regardless, this celebration is great for us users, as participating developers have discounted a slew of their apps across Android, iOS, Mac, Steam and others. These aren’t a bunch of crappy games either, the list includes:
- World of Goo
- Riptide GP
- Whale Trail
- And Many More!
This celebration starts today and will run until the 1st of June. It’s an excellent opportunity to score some great games at amazing prices, while showing developers some love by supporting their livelihood.
We rely on the ability to promote our games for our livelihood and control over pricing is an important tool for this purpose.
Users can find the complete list of games and developers participating in this celebration by following the source link below, and if you’re a developer looking to get in on the fun, you can also register your game(s) by folloing the same link. Game on!
