Socoder -> Off Topic -> Mysterious email from the unknown

Hello,

Would it be possible for you to email me a zip of any games you have made on blitz 2d?

many thanks,
Vic


Got this in the mail today. Any idea what it might be? Has anyone else gotten it? Google didn't yield any results, but it doesn't look quite like spam.

Uhm... why are you wondering?
Why not just zip up your games and be glad someone's interested? It's not like he's asking for sourcecode!

'Cuz he's most likely some scamrunner collecting games to sell on eBay.
People on RetroRemakes get mails like this all the time.

I'm just curious why I've gotten this email. How did he find me, and why would I get a mail about it now? And why does he want my games?

|edit| 9572AD is probably right. |edit|

?
People pay for your games on eBay?
Damn, I should start selling my games on eBay!

Edit: If he makes a profit selling other people's games, why doesn't he go on sites like this looking for them? What a lazy-ass!

Just put a bit of generic code in the game that displays the words "Free version. NOT FOR RESALE !"

Only if your games are intended to be FreeWare that is !

Heh, not like that's gonna help if they're already resold!
Bottom line is, once a game is out there, it's out there.
