In POP, the player plays through a series of erratic mini-games stylistically tied with the music. The vignettes are interconnected by idiosyncratic videos creating a purposefully disjointed experience. POP is an experimental game in the most literal sense. The game was purposefully built in way that explores a different approach to the typical game development pipelines. It was developed by first approaching the music and running with the first game concept that happened to emerge during that creative process. POP was developed independently by a sole developer. It was self-funded with the proceeds from auxiliary contract work.

RSS Feed Because We May Sale

Because We May is a sale collective of developers from different websites, devices and genres that have set low prices for the last week of May. Why? Because they can.

Posted by INtense! on May 24th, 2012

Developer Independence is a fantastic thing. Being able to control the prices for your games needs to be celebrated. We here at DesuraNET believe that as a developer you should have the freedom to do as you please, and it seems we are not the only ones who share such ideals.

Because We May is a sale collective of developers from different websites, devices and genres that have set low prices for the last week of May. Why? Because they can.

Here are a few of our favorites and recommendations for you:

If you want to be apart of the awesome gathering of developers simply fill out this form and discount your game as much as you want! Then just comment in this post and I will update the list!

There are a few games which are on sale on Steam as part of BWM, but not on sale here for some reason. For example, Dungeons of Dredmor and Q.U.B.E.

On the site you had to select the specific section where your game is available. It wasn't really obvious at first that you could submit multiple times for different sections but hopefully developers will email in updates.

Didn't know about the last two in that list, thanks - they aren't on the BWM site.

Though the list is missing: Metagolf and Silverquest

Any developers that add their Desura games to Because We May (or even those already in it) are perfectly welcome to also come shout out about their game in our group's forums:

I've been linking to that thread from elsewhere (it's had nearly 3,000 views if our group's stats are anything to go by), to get the word out about the Desura games participating in the event, as unfortunately Desura's (& other stores') participation wasn't initially well advertised by BWM.

So if you followed @Desura's tweet to this article, please retweet it & spread the good word... :)

There's three more:

Smiles HD was added to BWM's site, but Numen isn't appearing in the 'Others' section, but is listed under 'Steam'.
