What better way to market your company then for free? You’re probably saying, “Yeah right! You can’t market for free.” Well today I’m here to tell you how you can. Now don’t get too excited, this is not groundbreaking information. It’s actually an extremely simple idea but it truly works.

Nice collection! I just made Mutant Zombie Monsters – http://www.mutantzombiemonsters.com/ – not too hard or very much work… Better games to come!
