Download Games[edit | edit source]

As most common in the casual gaming industry, SGD release their games as shareware where you can download and play the game for a limited amount of time, usually 30 or 60 minutes. After this time the game will lock itself and the player must purchase a license (full version) to continue playing. All games are available for both Microsoft Windows and Mac OS X computers. Some games have also been released for formats such as mobile and Pocket PC.
