baKno Introduces Game Coin Pay-Per-Play Option
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | 6 comments

baKno has announced that all their Mac OS X games will now support Game Coins, a new "pay per play" alternative to purchasing a traditional shareware license. Gamers purchase "coins" which are expended when the player reaches the trial limitation of the chosen game, giving them a chance to continue.

Game coins are the same old way to pay for gaming at the arcade. An alternative way to pay as you play instead of purchasing a full license, and a convenient way to fully try all our games. After you purchase coins, you will receive an email with a Key Code to be entered on your game exactly as when you purchase a license. This key code will unlock the same amount of plays as coins purchased.

When playing, at the moment you reach the trial limitation, one of your coins is deducted with a distinctive sound, and you can keep playing until the end of that play. It is necessary that you are connected to the Internet when playing with coins, otherwise the game won't be able to verify your current coins.

Game Coins are currently supported by the following games:
Carambola
Color Sudoku
Domino
Kasino
MacPinball
MacPool
Slide & Stack
Snooker
SpacePig
Game Coins are sold in packages, with each coin at 10 US cents, and available packages of 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50 coins, each sold at US $1, $2, $3, $4 and $5 respectively.
