Establishing A Serious Process For Game Distribution Deals

Giving the opportunity for a heightened brand exposure


Via: Game du Jour and Insolita Studios

Game du Jour is the first “One Deal a Day” website for indie and casual PC games. Every day of the week, GameDuJour.com sells one popular downloadable game at a steep discount. But the clock is ticking and each deal expires at the end of the day.


Visitors to GameDuJour.com can download today’s game, try it and buy it at a big discount until midnight Central Time. Then it’s a whole new game — the clock is reset and another game is available at a bargain price.
To foster relationships between gamers and spur communication, Game du Jour offers a community area in which anyone can join in the fun of discussing the current game and sharing tips and tricks.

Game du Jour, a Silicon Valley start-up founded in 2006, is a marketing and distribution partner to game developers, giving those companies the opportunity for a rush of sales and heightened brand exposure during their products’ 24-hour lifecycle at GameDuJour.com.


Philippe Piernot, Ph.D is the owner at Game du Jour, Palo Alto, CA. He is a results-driven technologist with a strong research, development and management background.

On April 12, 2008 Cave Days authored by Insolita Studios, will be available for a Free Trial download. You can try it and buy it at a 60% discount until midnight Central Time for the Game du Jour Price of $ 7.98.


Insolita Studios is incubated as a resident company at the Technology-Based Business Incubator Center (Cietec) in Sao Paulo, Brazil. It was object of my prior post Serious Game To Evaluate Your Entrepreneurial Skills, covering Ottomax, an on-line game that simulates an enterprise environment, where the player becomes aware of his/her entrepreneurial skills, thus providing a valuable, interactive experience for those who intend to start their own business.
