IDEA Games Launches Own Digital Distribution Network

by Rainier on Nov. 21, 2006 @ 11:00 a.m. PST

Gathering of independent developers IDEA Games announce the launching of its own online distribution system, Sprocket. The first titles available from launch are the first two games of ALTAR Games' sci-fi trilogy - UFO: Aftermath and UFO: Aftershock, and Black Element Software's fantasy action game Shade: Wrath of Angels.

“The main reason we developed such a tool was to distribute the games of IDEA Games’ members to players around the world, without the limitation of release dates or territories,” said Martin Klima, Lead Producer at IDEA Games. “From now on you are able to buy our games no matter where you live!”

The first titles available from launch are the first two games of a sci-fi trilogy - UFO: Aftermath and UFO: Aftershock by ALTAR Games and the fantasy action game Shade: Wrath of Angels by Black Element Software.

“The biggest problem, even for best selling games is shelf space,” comments Jiri Rydl, Marketing Manager at IDEA Games. “After a few weeks your game is squeezed out by newer titles on the market, no matter how successful you are.”

Other titles from IDEA Games members are coming soon. Be prepared for Alpha Prime, sci-fi FPS by Black Element Software, UFO: Afterlight, third instalment in UFO series, Fish Fillets 2, puzzle game with two fish agents both by ALTAR Games, Ro┬ęk Con Artists, action arcade based on a successful Czech movie and ArmA: Armed Assault, the new title by Bohemia Interactive, creators of bestseller Operation Flashpoint.
