Awesome. Thanks for the heads up on Sonic. Now I can play Portal 2/WoW/LoL after work and tomorrow. YAY, then start a new game :facepalm:

I won't lie... I saw a game that's new and I'm slightly interested..but not at the current price... ::whispers:: it's Luxor Evolved. ANY word on ANY type of neat sale for that? I'm pretty sure it's like brand spanking new. <3 Luxor

So glad I found my way back to CAG. I'll miss having money -_-

Now Playing:
:pc: Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft

:pc: Diablo III: Reaper of Souls

:wiiu: Donkey Kong Country Tropical Freeze

:3ds: Animal Crossing: New Leaf

I'm glad you are digging this thread!

I'm surprised to hear you talk about Luxor. I've been trying to figure out where and who to market our "casual" games too since I started in August and it is driving me nuts:

I'll make you this deal, if you can find me a viable place to get people excited about deals like those featured in the link below:


http://www.amazon.co..._rd_i=979455011

I will start putting together $2.99, $1.99, and $0.99 deals for those types of games ALL THE TIME.

Let me know what you think.

Cheers,
Tony

You definitely need a "bargain bin" section. And/Or a price filter. Sometimes I like to search for some very cheap (sometimes unknown) games to buy. You can discover some addictive games this way!

It's funny you say that Tony, I'm into those types of games myself but it has been hard to find an audience here on CAG. I think the people here tend to be more into "hardcore" games. I know there used to be a Big Fish Games thread and on occasion a Big Fish free game thread pops up and gets 10-20 replies. I wonder if there is another site out there with people more dedicated to these types of games...

Edit:

I noticed two links saying "10 games you should try for free" and "try for free games" and I clicked both links where it said "learn more" and all it did was take me to a list of games. I finally figured out you guys have free trials on those games by clicking on the games and looking around but it might be beneficial to explain the free trials and how it all works when people click the Learn More buttons.

I bought Luxor Evolved at Steam since Day 1, it is awesome. Sparkly explosions, pure neon graphic, slow motion, boss fight, techno music and many other details bring so much fun

Do any of these work on Kindle Fire? You could market them that way. I know of more than a few people who would love deals on some KF games.

Tony my good sir,

My mom and aunt adore casual games, and what's not to love about em, and I like em too. So there's three people for you...maybe you could start a "petition" or a list of possible customers to aid you in your direction for casual games.

Also I got a question on the SEGA sale...do you think you could get Alpha Protocol on that sale?

Add me to the list of casual gamers! I don't always have time to sit down for hours and play hard-core so it's nice to have some games to play for a short bit. I mostly use my tablet for this but would also use my laptop if I could buy things cheap. :applause:

Guys, this is awesome feedback...I'm going to start listing our casual game sales here as well. I'll also take a hard look at some of the other suggestions here (bargain bin, better explaining free trials, etc.).

Thanks! I can tell you our next big casual games sale will be the first week in April, we have a ton of games we'll be putting on sale for $2.99...there will also be some pretty sweet "Core" game deals as well...more to come :).

Created a new thread!

Hope you guys are psyched about Sunday! I'll check back tomorrow to respond to any questions.

I actually like casual games too, but unless the buzz is strong on a particular title I tend to lean more towards the publisher in terms of finding a new title. There's so much (and I hate to call it this:) shovelware out there that quality of the game in the casual realm is always suspect in my mind unless I know it's from someone like Mumbo Jumbo or PopCap. I do like that you can search for these games by popular publisher... perhaps a publisher sale in casual?

Exactly what I was thinking. You could market to tablets, using titles like board games or similar titles for cheap that people are already familiar with to draw them to the main page with the other more obscure titles. I mean putting the Murder She Wrote title up front isn't gonna get a second look, but games like the Jewel Quest and Hotel Dash are very similar to the online casino games my parents play, and they'd be more than willing to drop a few dollars on other titles like Murder She Wrote, simply because that's from their generation. even the Nancy Drew stuff isn't really targetable toward my generation and I'm 30. Something to keep in mind. However, if you could bolster the catalog with more puzzle or adventure games or even something along those lines a little more "modern" like Soduko (another hot property with older gamers), Chess,Monopoly,etc. Also, calling them "Casual Games" might actually be working against you. The Wii didn't become a hit with older gamers because they used casual to sell it (at least they didn't make that a buzz word). Here's an example: My sister is getting the newer Kindle Fire, giving the older model to my Mom. She'll use it to do whatever in the down time while waiting for my niece to get out of the dentist, or girl scouts, etc. She'll be much more likely to game on it if she had a source of what I call "time suck" titles (not expecting you to use that one!). Games that are really fun, easy to play, and make time fly by (which requires more than a passing interest. If you want my advice, bolster the catalog slightly with the board game/adventure type games (but don't go the little kid route, no "Barbie's Fun House", stay on your target demographic), make those the ones you advertise, and when they click through to the main page, they will be introduced to the broader catalog and will be much more likely to purchase as a bundle some of the more obscure titles like Women's Murder Club. And as far as us here at CAG, there's more than just a few of us still playing the old LucasArts point and click adventures, old Commodore64 games, and emulating are old 16 bit and NES systems, and playing old copies of games like MIST. We love us some strategy board game/adventure game or detective game type scenarios and will certainly be buying our fair share. In fact I'm already looking at games like Midnight Mysteries, Spooky Manor (sounds kinda like Maniac Mansion or Day of the Tentacle, and Mystery at Mortlake Mansion. And those titles are intresting at $5, if you make good on your promise of possiblty bring them down even further....especially since some of them are just 50MB each, then my friend it's a deal. Nostalgia for the good ol' days of gaming. I could fill up an entire weekend gaming session for $20, have maybe a couple hundred megs to download (also important to keep game sizes down, most people are looking for these types of games on a mobile platform..laptop,kindle,etc.) That would be awesome. But I would find something to call them other than "casual" I'm drawing a blank at the moment, but , my other CAG's can possibly answer the call.

BTW, having direct communication with a Marketing Manager for such a huge retailer and being able to give input, being asked to give it no less, regarding how to approach advertising towards us is unprecedented and much appreciated. It works for everyone. You guys sell more games, create a larger user base (repeat customers), and increase market share as well as your reputation. We get fantastic deals on games we already want, get exposed to games that flew under the radar, and are much more willing to spend $5 or $10 on a game that we know little about but have been exposed to, and now have an interest in and are willing to give a try at that price. Also getting much more value for the dollar which equals more games we get to try meaning more fun. Not to mention the fact that because you, (Amazon) are tapping into an already established community that give feedback to one another, which only serves to amplify the results. Well done Tony. :applause: and Thanks Again.
