Part 1: Armor Games

Pimp My GameArmor Games is a Flash portal that will sponsor games on a case-by-case basis, with a game’s worth being determined by the site’s moderators. The site owners appear to be very efficient at pimping out games themselves; the Armor Games splash screen seems to pop up in every conceivable corner of the Internatz.

Not a good start.

Pimping Technique

To get the ball rolling with Armor Games, i visited the Sponsorship section of their site, where the site operators invited me to send an email to Sponsorship {at} ArmorGames.com.

So away i went, and sent them the following message:

Hello. i am interested in a sponsorship for my puzzle game, Two by Two. Please let me know what you think.

Thanks!

re: Game appraisal: Two by Two

It’s very fun and creative but extremely short.

Thanks for sending it to us though.

Best,

So there you have it! The game was not up to snuff for Armor Games’ standards … which may actually affirm your faith in Armor Games.
