Gwabs Desktop Battler
It looks like Cambrian House is doing pretty well with their concept of Crowded-source Software. They already have several products developed.
One of the products is an online computer to computer fighting game called Gwabs. I’m impressed with how rapidly they go from idea to development. I decided to spend the $9.95 and support them (hey, they gave me an X-Box and a t-shirt). The pre-order deal looks pretty good, as it gives you an unlimited free play account, plus a pimp cane. Talk about knowing your demographic.
After the break, a trailer of the game in action.
Here’s a trailer of the game in action. I expect it to have issues for the first three months, but then rapidly improve. The $9.95 for unlimited free lifetime plays is worth it.
Here’s my completely unsolicited marketing advice. Develop a “cracked” version of the game and release it on torrent in the month of November. When Dec 1st rolls around, “update” so the crack no longer works. Now you’ll have a bunch of people who were playing it wanting to buy it all around Christmas time.
When it comes out you’ll be able to battle me for blog supremacy in real time. Yes, I threw down. That was a challenge.
UPDATE: IT’S BEEN A FUCKING YEAR. WHERE IS IT?
