This week we saw the launch of the on demand indie game service Jump!
As we all know, paid subscriptions services are the way things are going in terms of entertainment content. With the massive success of Netflix, Now TV, PlayStation Now and the Xbox Game Pass, for the PC gamer, it seems like a no brainer.
You get a free 14 day trial (no card required) and after that it’s $9.99 (£7.40) a month to continue your subscription. Now, with a decent selection of games to begin with to get your teeth into, this is not bad value for money, providing that they stick to their guns and continue to add more games.
This could also be a great way to get more gamer’s enjoying indie games and involved in the community who would have been previously been put off by the ‘odd’ pricing of some indie games. With the average indie game costing around $9.00, $9.99 for as much as you can play seems like a pretty good deal.
As with most subscription services only time will tell, in the meantime however, we are making the most out of our free trail!!!
