2nd Year Anniversary Freebie – Hector: Badge of Carnage Ep1 Now free for a day

To mark the second anniversary of HECTOR: Badge of Carnage Ep1 (TMA Review), one of the best (and crudest) point and click adventures the App Store has seen to date, is now completely free for a day (June 2nd). Starring Detective Inspector Hector, the fouled-mouthed sleuth attempts to stop a madman from wrecking havoc on Clappers Wreake. The game’s filled with clever puzzlers and plenty of good ol’ dirty humour – in fact this definitely not an adventure that’s suitable for the young ‘uns. If you’re a fan of the genre and haven’t had the pleasure of playing Hector ep1 yet, here’s your check to grab it for free. And should you get stuck along the way (chances are you will), be sure to take a peek at our walkthrough.

Because We May: App Sales for iOS, Android and PC/Mac Platforms

Just in time for the long Memorial Day Weekend, a bunch of (indie) developers have banded together and created the “Because We May” initiative, slashing prices off their titles in an attempt to promote their work.

We believe that developers should have the freedom to price their games how they like, without interference from the online stores that sell the games. Why? Because it allows us to promote our games more freely, as we are doing here! We rely on the ability to promote our games for our livelihood and control over pricing is an important tool for this purpose.
