Making Online Games for AOL Games

I am presently producing seven on-line video games for Video We’re constructing every part from a mind recreation (to make America smarter) to a Zombie recreation (to make America dumber).

Whereas they’re principally within the Alpha stage it is fairly clear which titles will want extra TLC than the others. It is all the time fascinating to see how high quality, or lack thereof, can emerge virtually instantly.
