    ok..this might be old hat to you all…but just in case you haven’t come across it. SNS has come to indie game development…or something like that. HAs anyone any experience of it?

    Our Flash design lecturer showed us this a while ago, a lot of the games on it are actually very well designed and have clearly had a lot of time and effort invested into them.

    I’ve been to Kongregate, but not for the SNS. They are a very good flash games site. They were the first site to have Desktop Tower Defence, one of the best flash games. I’ve got no interest in talking to people I don’t know on a site based around flash games. I just assumed the SNS side was something that was happening on all sites like this and I’ve just taken no interest in it as I’ve no interest in the idea.

    I talked about this site for flash games about a year ago – Kongregate…and its terms and conditions are interesting because users/developers maintain owernship of the games they upload.

    Anybody know of any other sites like this for casual games developed by amateurs or indies?

    am writing something and looking for examples of sites which offer attractice revenue sharing models or at least allow developers to maintain owernship.

    Hey Aphra,

    most sites that host flash games dont purchase the rights to games, at best they might pay for a time-limited sponsorship (if the game is particularly good) but otherwise they’ll just pay a small licence fee to host the game and then share ad revenue (from pre-roll ads embedded in the game)

    Recent survey from MochiMedia might be of interest
