GameMaker is a really fun and quite powerful program to create games without writing a single line of code, through you can add all the code you want to maximize the fun doing 2d games and obtaining pretty good results too. Recently i checked the Gamemaker blog and found out that a Macintosh port is on its way as a PSP port too, wow doing games (without coding) on a PlayStation Psp seems a cool idea..
Last evening i was surfing the Steam Store site, then i decided to look at the top sellers.. What i saw really gave me to think, the top seller was Cod 6 Stimulus Package (13,99€).
So what is exactly this stimulus package, a manual to have a better discharge at the toilet?
According to what i read on the internet, it is a 5 map pack (2 of which are already be seen in cod 5), WHAT? 14 euro for 5 maps!! This means that a lot of people bought this.. Wow this is really a sign of times.. The gamers who bought this, must really like the game, but come on how is it possible? They are just 5 maps! It s like if someone spit on you and you tell him thanks and pay too! I am really happy to have not bought this game (mw2) i find this Stimulus package a living insult for 14 bucks, BUT Activision was right! They sold a lot of this, they made thousands of dollars with a 5 map pack!! Can you believe it? Personally i wouldn’t have, if i hadn’t saw it tonite on the top sellers in steam store..
Pay what you want (minimum 1 usd). If you bought these five games separately, it would cost around $80 but the games authors are letting you set the price!
All of the games work great on Mac, Windows, and Linux.
There is no middle-man. You can rest assured that 100% of your purchase goes directly to the developers and non-profits as you specify (minus credit card fees).
NO DRM. When you buy these games, they are yours. Feel free to play them without an internet connection, back them up, and install them on all of your Macs and PCs freely.
Your contribution supports the amazing Child’s Play charity and Electronic Frontier Foundation. By default, the amount is split equally between the seven participants (including Child’s Play and EFF), but you can tweak the split any way you’d like.
The next Call of Duty (the 7th?) will go in Vietnam..
According to the video you can sign up for a future beta.. The Beta is (probably) a fake. I mean.. it’s too early.. if you have more info the comment box are below.
