Brighton, UK, December 2
nd, 2013 - Independent games developer
Relentless today announced that the original PC version
of Murder Files is now available as a “pay what you
want” download from
Users can select any price from a completely FREE version to
whatever they wish to pay and Relentless will donate 20% of all net
receipts to GamesAid. This offer is open until December 31
Andrew Eades, CEO, commented: “Murder Files has been a
huge success on PSN, iOS and Kindle Fire already so we wanted to
offer it again to PC players. But we didn’t want price to be
a blocker for people. We also saw an opportunity to raise some
money for GamesAid by allowing people to pay if they want.
It’s an experiment as much as anything but I hope more people
get to enjoy our games like this in future.”
