Ambrosia Declares Amnesty
9:49 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

In a benevolent move sure to be praised by the U.N., Ambrosia Software has declared next week will be the start of National Shareware Amnesty Week. During this period, anyone who has been meaning to pay those shareware fees will be able to do so for the amazing price of only $10 per Ambrosia title! This is a great deal, especially for many of their excellent games such as EV Override, Ares, or even the classic Maelstrom (which still runs fine on a G4/500 with 9.1, in case you're curious). Here's the Ambrosia PR explaining more:

Admit it: you've torn the tag off of
your mattress, you've accelerated when the traffic light turned yellow,
and you've used an Ambrosia shareware game or utility that you never paid

Hey, that's ok, life is about forgiveness, and the time to forgive is now:
February 19th-26th is National Shareware Amnesty Week!

On this hallowed and respected week of repentance (which is right up there
in significance and notoriety with "National Unfortunate Body Hair week"),
every shareware Ambrosia game and utility is on sale for $10, no questions

You heard right: you huddled masses of Mac addicts, cleanse your karma
without putting a hole in your wallet!

Bring us your poor starving college students who spent late nights in your
dorm rooms playing Maelstrom or Escape Velocity while spilling pizza and
other unmentionables in their keyboards. They always meant to pay for the
game for all of the enjoyment it brought... when they got a job that
didn't amount to "Would you like fries with that, sir?"

But alas, like many things, good intentions get left on the side of the
highway of life like an old Big Mac wrapper. Well it's time to come clean,
and get a great deal in the bargain, too! Any shareware Ambrosia game or
utility for just $10, but for one week only!

The Rev. Hector D. Byrd will be issuing karmic blessings to those who take
advantage of National Shareware Amnesty Week to ensure that in your next
life, you won't be reincarnated as a common garden slug.

Head over to Ambrosia's site now, and cleanse your karma with a few good purchases. Ambrosia's utilities are also elligible for the deal, including their excellent SnapzPro application.
