    Press Release
    IDEA Games is launching online distribution!

    Prague, Czech Republic - 21st November 2006


    IDEA Games - gathering of independent developers - is proud to announce the launching of the online distribution system Sprocket at www.my-sprocket.com!

    “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©k 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.

    Visit www.my-sprocket.com and buy games directly from their developers!

              Interesting, so we likely know who will be doing the online distribution, but we still don't know when it will be distributed.

                  I think I'll hold off. If you look at the online distribution that Prey, for instance, used, that thing just shut off without warning. The guys who made Prey ended up giving everyone who bought it online a free copy because otherwise they were screwed. I trust Steam, because Valve is behind it. For this... I'm not so sure. I have no assurances they won't waltz off the face of the earth, taking AA and UFO Aftershock with them. And my money.

                    Yeah this type of thing usually has some problems while it's being rolled out. I guess I'll wait a few days after it's released before I download it.

                      Hehe, Prey was around for a few MONTHS before Triton disappeared into thin air. And Prey was a pretty big game too.
