Because We May

If you're looking for an excuse to pick up some top-notch Android games over the next week, you'll want to check out the "Because We May" sale, which has kicked off today. The sale, crated by a band of leading mobile game developers, brings heavy discounts to favorites of ours, including World of Goo, Osmos, EDGE and Fieldrunners HD. Many are on sale for under £2, while some are even 99 cents or less.

What's the big idea behind Because We May? The devs point to a celebration of the freedom offered by modern digital distribution channels like Google Play and the iOS App Store --

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.

The sale runs for the next week, so you've got until next Friday, June 1, to get your fill of some of the best Android games around. And if you're a multi-platform type, the "Because We May" sale also has discounts on iOS, Mac and Steam titles.

'Because We May' sale brings discounted prices to 57 Android games


There's a ton of good games in there actually, I've already got half a dozen or more of them thru other deals (Humble Bundle etc) but I might pick up one or two.

I got Osmos and World of goo and they are both awesome, fieldrunner was a bit of downer i Had other similar games that got me a better entertainment. EDGE is not on my collection, probably wont be, not interested yet.

That is because you can't have an app for lower than $0.99 unless Google has a promotion (like the $0.10 one a while ago). Some of the apps are usually $0.99 but are currently free.

You could not be more WRONG. For example:

World of Goo
Bag It

are all extremely excellent. I know because I have played those.

I bought four games (I had bought about 7 previously). I wanted to get one more, but the Snuggle Truck isn't compatible with any of my devices. I did buy Cogs, Bean's Quest, Zen Bound 2, and Riptide GP. So far I've really enjoyed all of them and feel they are all well worth the $0.99.
