MURDER FILES NOW AVAILABLE FOR FREE

Brighton, UK, December 2 nd, 2013  - Independent games developer Relentless today announced that the original PC version of Murder Files is now available as a “pay what you want” download from www.getmurderfiles.com.

Users can select any price from a completely FREE version to whatever they wish to pay and Relentless will donate 20% of all net receipts to GamesAid. This offer is open until December 31 st 2013.

Andrew Eades, CEO, commented: “Murder Files has been a huge success on PSN, iOS and Kindle Fire already so we wanted to offer it again to PC players. But we didn’t want price to be a blocker for people. We also saw an opportunity to raise some money for GamesAid by allowing people to pay if they want. It’s an experiment as much as anything but I hope more people get to enjoy our games like this in future.”
