Show Me The History

ShowMeTheGames has an interview with Chris from muzzy lane software here:

They make the strategy game ‘Making History’, which is used, a bit like Democracy 2 is, to teach kids history in schools.

I’m not really sure how to promote ShowMeTheGames. Hopefully, the RSS feed works now, but getting news sites to link to it is naturally problematic, because some will see it as a competitor to them. Hopefully the site can grow organically over time anyway. Feel free to quote the site or link to it when appropriate. I really want it to be the #1 site for showcasing indie PC games that you can buy direct from the developers. My heart sinks every time I see a cool new indie game and realise that the developers have an exclusive deal that you can only buy it from a third party. That just seems so lazy, and short-term. I’m sure everyone thinks they can always rely on their third party partners, and everything will be fine, but then, who predicted last week that impulse would get sold?

  1. I think you need a forum in the site, forums can bring to life a website, and it’s a great way to build a community.

    Just my 5 cents ;)

  2. …except, according to your own words, you get a miserable fraction of sales from direct selling :-P.

    On the other hand, there’s always a Minecraft…
