I spotted a BBC News article on Awomo, a new UK-based games company that was offering streaming downloads of games – and offering Tomb Raider: Legend for free during its beta period. So I thought I’d try it out.
It took me a while to download the required program, then six minutes to download the essential game files, and I thought I was ready to go. Unfortunately, trying to launch the game launched a flurry of pop-up warnings.
The laughingly-called support part of the website said that if there were any problems, you should try and visit the Awomo fourms, which is fair enough. But I couldn’t spot the answer to my problem on the forum, so I thought I ought to try and ask a seperate question.
Only to find that you can’t post on said forum without registering, and the administrators have disabled registration.
Thus, we have a new online games company which is so unkeen to hear from its customers that it won’t let them post to the forum in any way, shape or form. Odd, that.
