LOS ANGELES, CA (PRWEB) August 10, 2006
Legacy Interactive, the developer and publisher of such popular casual games as Law & Order, ER, and The Apprentice, has launched an innovative new casual game blog, at http://www.legacygamesblog.com, that links to and compliments its new game portal at http://www.legacygames.com.
Hosted by Typepad, the Legacy Games blog features game reviews written by customers of Legacy’s game portal, http://www.legacygames.com. Customers pen a review and submit it to Legacy. If the review is posted, the author receives $25. Recently, reviews of such popular casual games as Luxor, Connect 4, Super Bounce Out, Plantasia, 7 Wonders of the Ancient World, Big Kahuna Words, Super Text Twist and Law & Order Criminal Intent, among others, have appeared.
Unlike most other review sites, authors are encouraged to relate the game they’ve played to the larger world they live in. The game reviews are personal and often funny. For example, here is PrincessFly’s review of a new mahjong game. “My favorite part? I love clearing the screen. It makes me feel the same way I do when my ‘to do’ list has check marks next to every item. Another way I can relate to this game is peeling back the many layers of my person. I feel the older I get the more I learn about my inner self. Each set of tiles that leaves the screen is another mystery solved or another task completed. If only life were this simple!”
Consistent with who plays casual games, all of the reviews so far at http://www.legacygamesblog.com have been written by women. Here is an excerpt from another author, describing the intense rivalry between her and her husband. “It didn't take long for Super Bounce Out to become my favorite game and the battle for high score was on. My husband and I would leap frog over each other's scores. Finally the chase came to an abrupt halt when I reached a top score so high that he lost hope of ever topping it. After several failed attempts, he finally conceded that this was one game he just couldn't dominate. The high score on Super Bounce Out still resides on the computer with my name on it.”
Photo albums and background information are posted on the blog for many of the authors. Author guidelines can be accessed here: http://www.legacygames.com/writer_guidelines.php.
