Hey guys this might come off as a little bit of a rant but there's no real animosity here just some friendly advice from a Dev to the players, not sure if this is the right forum (since its addressing players on a Dev topic). If its not I'm sorry please let me know and we can move it? We recently had a run in with a user who was representing themselves as a member of the iOS reviewer community. They were requesting a copy of Brainsss for review and would also post about it on forums etc. The person they claimed to be is in fact a legitimate reviewer however we were already in contact with that person and have already given them a early beta of the new update. So this was just someone trying to leverage someone else's rep to save a few bucks and or get access to a game early. This isnt totally unheard of, I think Eli has mentioned it a couple times on twitter. Needless to say we didn't give them a copy of the game or any response at all really. We just gave the real guy a heads up and deleted the email. However in all honesty if they had of just contacted us directly** and said: "hey I like the look of Brainsss, but I don't want to fork out the 1.99$ can I get a copy?" The chances are we would have had absolutely no problem sending it over - and we have many times already. However pretending to be someone else meant that we weren't prepared to encourage that behavior with a free code - don't feed the pigeons and they won't get in your face when you're trying to eat, right? So while they might have some success using this less than ethical method to get a free game, I would be surprised if most devs weren't happy to give you a code if you ask nicely**. Personally we're always happy to release codes because being such a small Dev studio (2 ppl) and with limited to no marketing budget we feel the best way to get noticed is to get as many people playing as possible. This also relates to people who say things like "game looks interesting but I ain't paying the $1.99. I'm going to wait till its free". Why not contact** the Dev, give some feedback, tell 'em why you're hesitant to part with your 2 bucks and maybe, like any friendly neighborhood dealer, they'll "hook you up". My advice To you if you're one of these guys who likes to pretend you're someone else to try and score a free game or two, or you are unsure about a game but are genuinely interested in it. Try just asking first you might find you get what you're looking for without having to be 'one of those guys'. If the devs treat you good and you like the game then make sure you spread the love - we live and die by the word of mouth. tl;dr: if you want to try a game for free just ask**! Don't complain or try and scam one. **DISCLAIMER: its against TA forum rules to request a code from a Dev "- Don't beg/ask for promo codes, beta testing or gifted apps unless invited by developer. ". My recommended way would be to ask via the devs public channels. I.e. people typically contact us through our support/general contact pages. I'm not at all encouraging people to request codes through TA or other forums. Thanks for reading!
