Games on Sale Because We May

By Rebecca Smith, 4 years ago
Developers rarely get to control the price of their games. One of the conditions of selling games on some online marketplaces is that the owner of the marketplace gets to have a say in the game's pricing and marketing strategy. As a result, many developers choose to sell their games independently, but a select few marketplaces give developers complete control over their pricing. To celebrate this fact, select titles are heavily discounted for a short period of time in the 'Because We May' sale. 11 bit Studios has chosen to make use of this offer and has discounted their XBLA title:

Anomaly: Warzone Earth - 800 MSP 320 MSP

Those of you who don't mind games without achievements may want to check out these Xbox LIVE Indie Games that are on sale too:

Blocks That Matter - 240 MSP 80 MSP
Pingvinas - 240 MSP 80 MSP
TriLinea React - 240 MSP 80 MSP

If you own a Windows Phone and you'll take free games without achievements, Mictlan is free for the duration of the sale. The game usually carries a price tag of $0.99 / 79p.

Unfortunately, Games for Windows LIVE gamers miss out on this sale as both Osmos and World of Goo, which are on sale through Steam, do not carry achievements on the Steam platform.

The sale has been running for a couple of days already and is due to end on June 1st.

Thanks to the members of the community who sent this one in!
