Butterscotch Shenanigans Going Premium, Introduces BScotch ID
Butterscotch Shenanigans. You may have heard of them. They create awesome games like Towelfight 2, Quadropus Rampage, Flop Rocket, and of course the upcoming Crash Lands which is scheduled for a Spring 2015 release. More recently the games coming out of Butterscotch Shenanigans have been free,(although TowelFight 2 started out as a paid game)and they want you to know that pay-to-play sucks.
They hate it, and they despise ads and IAP's with the fire of a thousand suns, which is why they're going back to a premium pay model starting with the upcoming Crash Lands, with no ads, and no IAP's. In addition to this, the boys at Bscotch are introducing a new system to their games called the BScotchID, which wraps up a host of awesome features for gamers like a community hub where you can add friends who also play BScotch Shenanigames, cross-game rewards, and cloud services(woo!). This system also allows them to make their games free to try, and then the full game purchase can be made with a one time purchase called a "butter up," unlocking all of the game's content. To butter up a game you need to have created a BScotch ID first which you can do here, and because the guys at Butterscotch Shenanigans are awesome, they gave us 15 butter ups for free for you readers. They're a first come first serve so once they're gone they're gone, and remember you need to have created a BScotch ID first to claim the Butter Up. BScotch ID is in a beta format at the moment and development is still moving forward with it, but there's already plenty of promise. You can grab the butter ups here if you're ready to start gaming.
