As we move forward as an industry toward a future of online distribution and high-def streaming via clients such as OnLive, we’re no doubt going to see plenty of these types of sites cropping up every corner of the web. Beamdog is another downloadable game service site that vies to focus exclusively on digital software distribution- with a company statement that details that the site “represents the start of an open, transparent and rapidly-expanding digital market”. Aimed at working closely with developers and publishers also, Beamdog is boasting superb user experience and enthuses on their site that they “believe the users are the most important part of the business and by delivering a great experience you will reward us in turn”.
Set up with an abundance of industry experience at the helm, Beamdog was founded by ex-Bioware founder, Trent Oster and game developer, Cameron Tofer. As Trent Oster explains “I want a great selection of the best games ever made, all in one place and I want to get playing fast; that is what we intend for Beamdog.” Hey, who can disagree with that?
