Freeware adventure distribution - any tips?
« on: March 14, 2010, 10:18:49 AM »

Hi muties!

Did you distribute your adventures as freeware before? Or you did not but do know some tips.
Can you share any suggestions how to do it better?
Any help would be appreciated. ::beer

For German Adventures:

You can send them to adventurecorner.de and / or adventure-treff.de, they will be happy to announce the game and put it into their Database.

For International games I don't know any adventure-specific sites.

sincerly, Spellbreaker

Thanks Spellbreaker ::rock

These sites look great. I wish I could speak German :)
I don't have German version of my game anyway. :(

I'd suggest posting in adventure-related forums. AdventureGamers.com has a dedicated forum section for freeware games, and the good folks at GameBoomers also seem to enjoy a freebie adventure from time to time.

Which reminds me I should finally play your game. I was out last week and didn't get to it yet.

Adventure-Treff already listed your game a few days ago.
