This Week In Indie: French Cows, A New Indie Game Promotion Service
French Cows is a new indie game promotion service. French Cows aims to attract customers by seamlessly blending creation and community, meaning that gamers can become involved in the creation process of game and follow a developer through the French Cows service. As such, you can provide feedback to indie devs as the whole service of French Cows is built upon the foundation of a strong sense of community where opinions and feedback are of tantamount importance.
Now French Cows has been officially launched and promises to give you games for many platforms (these are not outright specified). The 5th of November marked the beginning of Season1# of the French Cows service with two indie game packs which have been on sale. These packs are priced at €9 each or you can save yourself some cash and buy both packs for €15. French Cows promises fresh content and they have this to say about the service:
You buy a pack and FrenchCows gives you games on many platforms. But that’s just a beginning… During 3 months the game developers and designers are going to show you what they are truly made of. Expect bonuses, add-ons and any kind of game related stuff. Some are even going to create new games just for your pack!
You may call it innovation. But we prefer to just speak about Sense. A game is not a product, it is just the tip of the iceberg…
The money you pay for the indie game packs is shared equally among the artists and developers involved in a game’s development. By paying for an indie game pack you become part of the French Cows community and can have direct conversations and give feedback to indie developers.
The process of buying an indie game pack works as follows:
Get games within seconds in a fast, simple and reliable manner.

So expect nothing less than secure payment, immediate game downloading, easy updates, and automatic member access.
