Aveyond games

#1 Post by Te'ijal » Wed Feb 10, 2010 10:08 pm

I don't know if I'm putting this in the right spot but I was wondering... Hanako Games has the last 4 games in the Aveyond games series but they don't have the first game "Ahriman's Prophecy". Why is this?

Well, as that game's not for sale, it would be kind of hard for me to sell it. :)

Ahriman's Prophecy is free, but maybe this site could provide a link to where you can download it or something. :)

Very boring technical answer:

It's already mostly a waste of time for me to list the Aveyond games because everyone here who plays them buys them from her site anyway and I don't get any sales credit for them. I pretty much just keep them listed because I like Amanda, not because I can ever make any money out of it.

But there's at least a slim chance that someone might find my site first having never heard of Aveyond and download one of the games, get a cookie set, and end up giving me sales credit when they bought it. A very slim chance. It almost never happens. However, with a download to the FREE game set first, that chance would would go from 'slim' to 'none' because downloading the free game would not set a cookie and the downloader would almost certainly go from playing the free game to the Amaranth website to buy their games.


Anyway, I don't mind people linking to that game on the forums, it's just not going to have a link on the main webpage.

Ah, I didn't think of all that. Guess that comes from being a naive consumer. ;)
