It seems lately, BF has very few, if any, good adventure games. You see match three, solitaire, kids' games a lot of times. I'm going to have 2 credits by the 11th and nowhere to use them. I realize it is hard to have a "new game every day," but this is getting depressing. Maybe they should change their phrase to a "different" game every day. Don't mean to be negative, but am getting concerned.

Thanks for letting me vent!

BigFish is not having troubles. They only develop a small percentage of the games such as MCF and Drawn series and the rest they are merely publishing them. You can only work with what is being developed and they still bring us the best that the other developers are developing. With continued high expectations on Graphics, innovation, gameplay and length it is costing more and taking more time to develop these games. It is impossible to produce a huge hit game 365 days a year. There are not enough top notch develop teams out there to do that.

What Ana said, absolutely. Big Fish mostly publishes games rather than develops them; they aren't magicians and they can't pull rabbits out of their hat every day, as nice as that would be. I'm sure we will see many more terrific games released before the end of the year. wave

I, for one, continue to be amazed at what BFG has to offer on a daily basis. Sure, I admit to feeling a bit disappointed when the daily offerings don't fall into the categories I prefer. But I figure I'm just one of millions that BFG seeks to please. As Ana stated, adventure games in particular take a long time to develop and produce. I'd rather wait for a good quality game than be offered something that disappoints.

I also imagine that developers choose other means to distribute their best work before making them available to BFG. Ana may have more information in this regard.

Thanks, everyone. As I mentioned, I mostly wanted to vent.

Actually Sparkle, BigFish is what most casual developers strive for. They are trusted to pay promptly and fairly and have the largest base of customers.
