If you haven’t been living under a rock for the past few days, you surely noticed some of the games on Google Play Store, Apple App Store, Steam, etc are discounted. Why is that? It’s because of a campaign called ‘Because We May’.
It helps you price your game how you like, not how the online store likes. And it’s celebrating the online stores that allow developers to freely adjust the price on their product with great discounts! Those kind of stores undoubtedly are the Google Play Store, the Apple App Store, Steam, Desura, IndieVanilla, and some others. And if you choose to join this campaign with discounting your game, sign up on their page and they will promote your game on their website for free!
Here’s what they say about this:
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.
For the last week of May (May 24 through June 1) our games will be deeply discounted to celebrate online stores that give us control over pricing: The App Store, Google Play, Steam, Desura, IndieVania, and a few others.
The campaign lasts until 1st June, so if you want to join, you better hurry up.
